It’s not a trippy flashback from the 60s. Vanessa Hudgens took to Instagram this weekend and posed in front of the mirror in a suit that transports fans back to the days when she robbed restaurants to pay for her spring break vacation. Spring Breakers. The Pucci design and colors combined with a matching headscarf would make it difficult to choose her from a Woodstock range. However, her fans can’t take their eyes off her rock hard abs. Caption: “Loves a set.”
It’s nice to see Vanessa Hudgens squeeze in time for some R&R as she’s been quite a busy woman. She needs to keep those vocal cords in shape as she sings the national anthem to the Phoenix Suns for Game 5 of the NBA Finals, as she did on Saturday night in Phoenix, Arizona.
