Vanessa Hudgens has replaced Britney Spears as the face of Candie’s.
The actress takes over from the troubled singer as the model of the juniors clothing brand, and was personally congratulated by Britney herself.
Britney, 29, tweeted, “So fun being a Candie’s Girl! Look out for the @Candiesbrand pics of their new girl, Vanessa Hudgens! – Brit (sic).”
Vanessa, 22, tweeted back, “Thnx, @BritneySpears, you’re a tough act to follow…but, I’m so excited to be the new Candie’s girl for 2011!! – xo. (sic)”
High School Musical star Vanessa–whose campaign was shot by photographer Tony Duran in Sun Valley, California–will make her debut in March.
Vanessa revealed she has been a fan of the brand ever since Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie appeared in an ad for them. She said, “Ever since I saw Fergie do the ads for Candie’s I fell in love. It’s such an honor to be able to be a Candie’s girl now!”
