Vanessa Hudgens was seen carrying her adorable poodle. She later met up with friend Brittany Snow and the two grabbed some food. I love it when celebrities are friends, apparently Brittany and Vanessa met on the set of Hairspray, when Zac Efron was filming.
Vanessa looked casual in her uniform of jeans, boots and a long flowy scarf. Vanessa’s jeans are Black Orchid’s Black Rider Biker Jeans. Vanessa’s jeans are currently on sale at Boutiquetoyou.com for $95.99, such a steal!
Vanessa Hudgens was snapped making her way through JFK International Airport, as she and boyfriend Zac Efron left the Big Apple. Vanessa recently starred in the show, Rent, which was playing at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.
Vanessa was wearing her Wildfox Denim skinny jeans in Dark Rip wash, which she really seems to love lately. I know that Lorna mentioned Wildfox looks very similar to Current/Elliott, which I totally agree with. However, I really love how defined the contrast stitching is, I think it gives the jeans a really nice finish. You can check out the brand’s lookbook at Wildfox Couture. Buy Wildfox jeans at Singer22 and Boutique To You.
Vanessa Hudgens steps out with her friend, actress Brittany Snow. The two have been friends for a while and perhaps they met through Vanessa’s boyfriend Zac Efron. Zac and Brittany starred in the film Hairspray together. Vanessa also showed off her new (Henna) tattoo to the paparazzi!
Vanessa is wearing a pair of jeans by Current/Elliott. She’s been spotted wearing the Destroyed jeans quite a few times before. She is certainly a fan of destroyed denim, not only has she been seen wearing these before, she’s also been seen in similar pairs by Wildfox, Dylan George and Diesel. My favorite is this pair by Current/Elliot, which do you like best?
According to Women’s Wear Daily, celeb favorite April 77 has stopped production.
Founded in 2001 in Grenoble by designer Brice Partouche, the trendy label was sold in about 80 specialty stores in the U.S., including Barneys New York, Blackbird and Oak. However, in recent seasons the company faced serious financial and production issues, failing to deliver fall ’09 orders to major retailers like Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s.
The line was represented in the U.S. by New York-based Archetype Showroom, which sent out a letter to buyers in recent weeks informing them of April77’s closure and that no spring ’10 merchandise would be delivered.
“Unfortunately after much internal trouble, April77 is not in a financial position to be able to finish production and deliver your goods,” read the note from the showroom’s founder, Audrey Gingras. “I am truly sorry for the strain that this may cause you, as well as for the lack of forewarning. We are very distraught here at Archetype to have learned of this situation, especially as it is so late in the season to learn of such a problem.”
In late 2008, April77 tapped a new chief executive officer, Bernard Didier, and chief financial officer, Didier Affre.
The brand was known for directional denim, which sold for $140 to $350. Jeanswear made up about 65 percent of sales, with a contemporary sportswear line accounting for the remainder of business. Men’s wear comprised about 60 percent of sales and women’s wear 40 percent.
“Music, youth movements and underground culture have always been the main inspiration for my design,” Partouche told WWD last year.
“There was a lot of potential for this brand and it was a profitable, viable business for seven years. But in the past year, it sort of deteriorated,” said Gingras, who added April77 owed her six figures in unpaid sales commissions and expenses.
