Vanessa Hudgens: Girls Should Embrace Their 'True Self'!

“I absolutely love that Bongo wanted to do something different by not retouching my photos for their campaign,” Vanessa posted to her Tumblr. “I think it is important for girls to be true to who they are, and not compare themselves to girls who have been photoshopped to look ‘perfect.’ God made us all unique for a reason and we should embrace our true self.”

FYI: Vanessa is wearing Sunday Somewhere sunglasses.

    Then why have you lightened your hair? That is NOT your true self.

    I don’t get this girl, she believes in God and is a Catholic yet does Yoga which is associated with Nontheistic religions. Make you mind up man.

    i love love love her hair like that. hope she never puts those ugly extensions in again. now if she’d just get rid of those fake nails. i know they seem to be the in thing these days, but they’re just nasty and destroy your real nails.

    Umm… Yoga is a good form of exercise.

    Her hair was fake in the campaign, don’t tell me otherwise and her hair is still fake cause she isn’t a natural blonde. And yes V, you are more than aware that they used TONS of lighting in that bongo campaign, she’s an Instagram girl, of course she knows lighting makes you look better. And I wouldn’t be bragging about being in a bongo campaign when her younger friend and former co-star Ashley benson is in a H&M campaign and Jennifer lawrence who is 2 years younger than Vanessa is in a Dior campaign. Wasn’t the last bongo ambassador D-lister Audrina Patridge as well? LOLOLOL V should know she is in the bottom of the Hollywood food chain and only capitalizes on her looks through pap opportunities. How will anyone respect her through a d-list campaign like bongo is beyond me when she is only doing this for the money and not thinking about being a respected actress. That’s why she’s taking acting classes to be “taken seriously” now, she should’ve taken her acting career seriously once she left disney. Girl has a looooooong way to go.

    I don’t think God cares if Catholics do yoga. It’s just another exercise routine to keep her healthy.

    @IOI: No offense but you sound really jealous.

    True and you also should accept that you don’t have talent.

    @kylie: who’d be jealous of a d-list attention seeker like hudgens? If I was a serious actress I wouldn’t go near a bongo campaign either lol. IOI doesn’t sound jealous, she’s just saying the truth, I even forgot that audrina used to rep bongo lol. Why would any girl with common sense look up to hudgens at all? Because “she’s pretty” and the key to happiness is “being pretty”, how vapid does that sound. I’d rather look up to Jlaw than hudgens, hudgens is way too aware of her looks, at least Jennifer is gorgeous but doesn’t rely on her looks and consistently works on her craft seriously. Sounds like you need a better role model to look up to lol

    Thats dumb. I think all girls have gone through that “I dont like myself” phase. It’s part of adolescence and life. She cant change anything about puberty.

    Luna Says:

    @Jr That’s not the point, Yoga is about being healthy in a spiritual sense not just a physical sense. Too many people use things from religions for their own benefits.

    She’s beautiful no matter what but I do miss her long, brunette hair. Boo.

    Sara Says:

    I get what she’s saying but imagine if you had Candice Swanepoel or whoever in an ad campaign covered in blemishes or what have you. That’s not visually appealing, in real life that stuff doesn’t matter but in fashion photography it’s important. We need to teach young girls the difference between fashion models in print and people in real life because there is a huge difference, rather than saying it’s different and unique because bongo don’t retouch their photographs.

    So what? You believe Gods going to send every catholic who does yoga to hell?

    I like Vanessa, but why in the world does she think this look works for her? Terrible hair, horrific outfit. Looks trashy.

    Why and to whom is she relevant?

    Rachel Says:

    @xyzc: Obvious you because if she wasn’t relevant to you, would you really post something on her?

    @Jr: hold up that’s not what I said, it just doesn’t make sense.

    @IOI: You are certainly miserable, huh? Vanessa has a younger look than those girls, and I say she should capitalize on that with younger brands while she can. I think it’s tacky for very big fashion houses and designers, to use young 20 somethings as their spokeswomen. I just think those aren’t the women who buy Dior, etc., so why feature someone who will annoy the clientele of Dior? As far as acting, Vanessa has done quite a bit since HSM. Have you had your head in the sand? She had nice reviews for her last 3 films. SB, FG, and GS. She is working on her “craft” just as much as JLaw, who has roles handed to her. Overexposed in my book, and had the luck to get a few well written roles in good movies.

    Vanessa is a natural beauty, with or without blonde hair. Most women color their hair, so it’s not about that. It’s about her natural features, her lack of plastic surgery, her own body. THAT is natural. Hair is just hair.

    You can do yoga and believe in God. It’s ok

    @maria: how do you know Jlaw has roles handed over to her ? Are you her manager? publicist? relative? Stop living in lala land for once. Even IF she does get roles handed over, she deserves it. She’s an oscar winner and has done justice to all the roles – which are by far more difficult ones than V does – she has got so far. Vanessa is doing nothing. GS, SB, FG came out a long time ago.
