No longer dancing down the hallways of East High in girly dresses and headbands, Hudgens is all grown-up, with a more sophisticated style to boot.
Though the birthday girl has always glammed it up for the red carpet, she’s gone through different fashion phases since first hitting the scene as a teen.
When she first hit the red carpet in 2004, Hudgens was all about breezy dresses in pretty pastels. But even during this ultra-girly phase, there were still hints of the boho style — like the low-sung belt she wore with a long pink lace dress to a press event in 2005 — she would come to adopt in her twenties.
As she entered her late teens, the star began to branch off from her High School Musical image, showing off her sexier off-screen style in curve-hugging dresses in sultry hues and animal prints. Though the look was more va va voom than boho chic, Hudgens let her inner hippie come through in her loose wavy strands and even the occasional peace sign necklace.
Now in her 20’s, Hudgens has really come into her own. Having developed a professional and sartorial identity outside of her High School Musical crew, the Spring Breakers star has found a way to marry her inner flower child with a more grown-up glamour in time for her big red carpet year ahead, as she stars in three movies in 2013.
To celebrate Hudgens’ 24th birthday, we’re taking a look back at her red carpet style over the years.
