And these sneak pictures from her first-ever photoshoot with the brand show that she is already doing a great job of filling the 29-year-old pop princess’s shoes.
Vanessa, 22, who recently split from boyfriend Zac Efron, made the announcement on her Twitter page yesterday evening, describing herself as “so excited” and declaring Britney “a tough act to follow.”
Britney tweeted her congratulations, saying: “So fun being a Candie’s Girl! Look out for the @Candiesbrand pics of their new girl, Vanessa Hudgens!”
A statement released by Vanessa said: “It’s such an honour to be a Candie’s girl.
“We had a blast shooting the campaign, one of my favourite sets was using the diner counter top as a runway, it’s definitely not every day I get to do that.”
The new campaign starring Vanessa will kick off in March.
