Vanessa Hudgens is the new face of Candie’s!

Vanessa Hudgens is the new Candie’s Girl!

Following on the heels of Britney Spears and Fergie‘s highly-successful runs, the junior brand has chosen the High School Musical star as the face of their Spring campaign. “Ever since I saw Fergie do the ads for Candie’s, I fell in love,” Hudgens said in a release. “It’s such an honor to be a Candie’s girl.” The campaign, which was shot by fashion photographer Tony Duran, will kick off this March with ads appearing in magazines, billboards and online for the brand, which is sold exclusively at Kohl’s department stores and kohls.com. Hudgens enthuses about the shoot (see a behind the scenes shot below!),”We had a blast shooting the campaign, one of my favorite sets was using the diner countertop as a runway, it’s definitely not every day I get to do that.” We have a feeling the multi-talented 22-year-old’s flirty and fun style will be the perfect match for the juniors’ line!

I think she’s a better choice than Britney! What do you think?

Michelle Obama turns heads by wearing Alexander McQueen dress at China state dinner

Michelle Obama was representing America at a state dinner hosting the man who is one of her husband’s biggest rivals on the world stage.

But the First Lady has once again made a daring fashion choice, appearing instead last night in a fiery red gown by British designer Alexander McQueen.

The Obamas were hosting Chinese president Hu Jintao at an elaborate state dinner in Washington last night- and Mrs Obama’s fashion choice was not the only controversial thing on the menu.

It’s Official: Blake Lively and Chanel Collaboration

From ElleUK:

Chanel has confirmed that the star of it’s next ad campaigns will be Blake Lively.

It’s been something of an open secret for a month now but now we can officially confirm that Gossip Girl star Blake Lively has been picked by Karl Lagerfeld to be the new Chanel ambassador.

Lively is set to star in ads for the new Mademoiselle bag, and the pictures, which will be unveiled in April, have already been snapped. The actress-turned-model got to pose on the iconic staircase in Coco Chanel’s Rue du Cambon studio – and, according to WWD, she was pretty thrilled by the whole experience. ‘How did Cinderella feel when she slipped on the glass slipper? How did Snow White feel when she met her Prince Charming?,’ she gushed. ‘Dream come true is an understatement. I can say that I feel like the happiest, luckiest girl around.’

Blake’s appointment hasn’t come as a great surprise – ever since she was first spotted front row at the Chanel couture show early last year, she and Karl have struck up a friendship, and she’s also been spotted in an impresesive line-up of the label’s dresses. What with this and her friendship with Christian Louboutin, we could find ourselves getting quite envious of the lucky Miss Lively…
