All On The Cover: Vanessa Hudgens Covers InStyle Makeover

Vanessa Hudgens strikes a pose on the cover of InStyle’s special makeover issue wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo dress and Tom Binns necklace. 

Check out this interview Vanessa Hudgens did with InStyle to find out about her style icons, hair horrors, and more! 

How has your style changed since you’ve been in the spotlight?
When I was younger I wasn’t into fashion or taking big risks. Then I started paying attention to Nicole Richie and Mary-Kate Olsen and all their different looks. That inspired me. And also you learn about your body; it takes a while to know what looks good on you.

Most important lesson?
I’ve learned that short-short skirts are not the way to go. I went through that phase at 13, so I never need to go there again! I did my Hollister bell-bottom thing; then I couldn’t live without my Frankie B. jeans, little ballet flats, and T-shirts. That was cute, fun and easy.

Does Zac [Efron, Hudgens’s boyfriend] have any opinions about what you wear?
Well, truthfully, I wear what I want. It’s not about a guy, really — no disrespect — I’m just saying that I dress for myself. My style has evolved into something I’m proud of. Of course, I’m still changing and my style will too. That’s the fun of fashion!

The “Bandslam” star looks cute and casual in a Forever 21 tank.

Let me guess: Drawer full of hair tools?
Oh yeah. I’ve got a Chi ceramic flattening iron, four curling irons in different sizes, and at least two blow-dryers. One stays in the suitcase.

So if this Hollywood thing doesn’t work out, you could always be a stylist…
I’m pretty good, but my hair is always better when someone else does it! My arms get tired, and I don’t have the patience.

When you straighten your hair, you look so different.
I know! It’s weird. I’ll walk into a room and my friends don’t recognize me. It’s fun to feel so transformed by changing something so simple.

Have you always had long hair?
I had short hair only once in my life. When I was 7, I cut it myself, which I think every girl does — once. I gave myself a bob and bangs. It was really sad. I looked like I had worms on my head.

Any other hair disasters?
I went through a stage where I had burgundy hair, which was frightening. And I had light brown hair with light blond highlights. My friend said it looked like I’d dipped my hair in ashes. It looked so bad.

When it comes to beauty, who do you look up to?
Jennifer Lopez is downright gorgeous. She’s mastered her glow. I got kind of lucky with the glow too. It’s the Filipino in me from my mom, who has got the most amazing skin. I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll take after her.

Is the gym part of your morning routine?
It changes constantly, but recently I’ve been working out with a trainer at home. I’m doing an action movie called “Sucker Punch,” which is going to be a lot of hard work, so I have to be ready for it. We do weights and a lot of cardio. She makes me run up and down my stairs 10 times. I have a three-story house, so it’s definitely tiring.

All On The Cover: Victoria Beckham’s Interview with Harper’s Bazaar

Victoria’s Secrets
With a new fashion line and a houseful of boys, Victoria Beckham has mastered her balancing act

Here’s an excerpt of her interview…

They say that to really understand somebody, you need to walk a mile in her shoes. But what if you can’t actually stand in her shoes? Such is the case with a pair of thigh-high PVC Antonio Berardi boots Victoria Beckham recently wore to a Macy’s appearance with her husband, David, in New York. It wasn’t that the heels were formidable; the boots had no heels at all. Victoria struck her patented pose for the assembled photographers while gamely perched on the balls of her feet.

“Oh, c’mon, they’re not that hard to walk in,” she admonishes as I masochistically try them on (after a bemused-looking housekeeper fetches them from Victoria’s closet). “They’re not uncomfortable! You have to go to a sex shop to get this spray to polish them.” Did she go buy it personally? “Oh. No …”

It’s a bright, shiny morning in Los Angeles, and Victoria, with a pixieish new haircut, is sitting on her couch in a slinky dress from her eponymous new line. The black sheath looks fetching against the royal-purple couch, the ensemble given a kick by the red soles of her Christian Louboutins. “What might feel like a nine-inch heel to most people is like a flip-flop to her,” sighs close friend Heidi Klum.

It’s easy to forget when you observe such a glamorous package that Victoria is the mother of three rambunctious young boys (Brooklyn, 9; Romeo, 6; and Cruz, 3) and the wife of a sports icon whose schedule prompted the family’s move to L.A. in 2007. (“We’re not going to leave L.A.,” she says emphatically, despite David‘s recent acceptance of a stint with Italy’s AC Milan team.) But you need only to watch Cruz bound into the house and into Victoria’s arms — then straight to the soccer ball.

For a woman largely perceived as the dictionary definition of high maintenance, Victoria looks rather at ease. After all, she has earned the approbation of a tough crowd, the fashion industry. Marc Jacobs is on his way over for lunch, and her week is packed with visits from Burberry’s Christopher Bailey, stylist Katie Grand, and photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The family house, only one year on, looks like a home (albeit a very fancy, orchid-covered, Damien Hirst-bedecked one), with two palm trees out by the pool, between which the boys make their mother play goalkeeper. “That’s what this bruise is,” Victoria says ruefully, pointing to a mark on an otherwise glossy leg. “I’ve fallen down playing bloody soccer.”
