There’s never a dull moment when it comes to Vanessa Hudgens‘s style, and as it turns out, there’s a very simple explanation for that.
“I’m a female with mood swings,” Hudgens explained of her style philosophy at a Lucky Brand event Sunday. “That’s what I love about fashion. You can be whoever you want to be … I’m a female, I can’t make up my mind!”
The star says she tends to lean more boho, as evidenced by her commitment to not committing to shoes on the red carpet. As soon as they start to hurt, “I’m a barefoot kind of girl … Actually, I’d prefer it. When it’s time [to lose the shoes] I don’t mind.”
One thing she’s also known for on the red carpet: Showing off her totally amazing abs. And they’re definitely hard-won, a result of her nonstop workout routine. “What do I not do is the question?! No, I do so much, I work out so much. It’s my addiction. Serious addiction.”
On her workout menu: SoulCycle, yoga, and anything she can do to “something with a heavy beat that you can just let yourself go, you know?” All of which adds up to her favorite feeling in the world: Being fit. “You just feel like you can accomplish anything. When you push yourself through a really hard workout, it’s a mental thing rather than a physical thing … and I love that. It’s a good self-esteem booster.”
