Vanessa Hudgens' Yearbook Photo -- 6th Grade!

Vanessa Hudgens' Yearbook Photo -- 6th Grade!

To the left, High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens in the 6th grade, age 12.

To the right, Baby V earlier this month at the LA premiere of Hairspray, age 18.

“This picture is super tragic compared to what she actually looked like back then,” said kungxfucandy, who went to school with Vanessa. “She was super tiny, and REALLY cute. That picture doesn’t do justice; she looks really awkward there, but she wasn’t awkward in the slightest. She’s a major sweetheart.”

Looks like Vanessa had those killer cheekbones all her life!
