“Its really exciting to be playing an adult in an office wearing sensible heels and sweaters with button-downs underneath them, ” Vanessa Hudgens told Mashable when discussing her new TV show.
And for her, business casual genuinely is uncharted territory. Vanessa Hudgens is likely the person you see when you close your eyes and concentrate on the words “Coachella fashion.”
We caught up with Hudgens, who is launching a partnership with shopping app Covet Fashion, to talk about creating the avatar version of herself, personal style and playing an adult for the first time on the upcoming reveal Powerless .
NBC lately picked up Hudgens’ pilot, Powerless , a slapstick about a normal girl working at an insurance company in a world inhabited by DC Comics characters.
This is actually the first time Ive played an adult in a working environment, and its so funny because Im 27, ” Hudgens said. “Im always playing a high school student, a runaway, a college student student thats robbing people. Its never set in reality.”
And while Powerless is based in a fantasy world, it’s not really about the superheroes.Hudgens and her fellow normals are, “basically just going about our lives and find our own power as a powerless person in a world full of Supers. So its never really about them, its more about finding yourself in that world.”
Hudgens may not be wearing capes on television, she’ll still be having fun with her personal style, appearing as an avatar celebrity host in Covet Fashion’s app.
Hudgens says the app, which lets users go online shopping by having their avatars try on digital versions of real clothes, is sort of like a real life version of Cher Horowitz’ closet.
“I always fantasized about it, ever since watching Clueless, ” she said.
Fans will have a chance to vote on attires for the digital Vanessa Hudgens to wear on the average day in their own lives, “For me, thats like, festivals, date night with my boyfriend, girls’ night out.
IRL, she’s aroused to be wearing lots of white, Levi’s 501 cutoff shorts and shoes byCalleen Cordero.
She hand-makes all her stuff in LA, ” Hudgens said. “Its really beautiful leatherwork. I just got gold wedges from her that are so cute and so fun. That make me really excited for summer.
And, in true Cher Horowitz style, she’s still really into ‘9 0s fashion.
“I guess chokers are trending right now, but I love them, ” she acknowledged. “I think theyre timeless.
But she doesn’t focus too much on individual items, and would rather simply chill out and mixture things up the Vanessa Hudgens style philosophy.
