Vanessa Hudgens is the new face of Candies.

“Ever since I saw Fergie do the ads for Candie’s, I fell in love,” says the star of the upcoming Sucker Punch and Beastly. “It’s such an honor to be a Candie’s girl now.”

The campaign was shot by Tony Duran at the ’50s-flavored Pink Motel in Sun Valley, Calif. In true fun-loving Candie’s style, Hudgens is seen posing poolside in a pink-and-black cherry-print bikini with pink-and-black polka-dot trim; strutting her stuff in a multicolor rose-print maxi dress, using the motel’s diner counter as her runway; and playfully digging into a burger and fries in a sweet pink dress with a bow at the waist.

Hudgens’s favorite Candie’s piece? “I love the long maxi skirts because they’re so easy. You throw them on, throw on a cute little top… and you’re so good to go. It’s super-cute and bohemian, and I love it!” says the star, whose style influences include Nicole Richie, Bianca Jagger, and Mary-Kate Olsen (“She’s so crazy and out there”).

The Spring 2011 campaign, in which Hudgens models “sunglasses, shoes, handbags—everything a girl could ever need,” will début in March issues of fashion and lifestyle magazines, including Seventeen, Teen Vogue, and Cosmopolitan, and online at Kohl’s, where Candie’s is sold exclusively.
