Former Candie’s spokesmodel Britney Spears is passing the baton to the brand’s newest face, [artist id="2446077"]Vanessa Hudgens[/artist]. The “Beastly” star is taking over the role as the clothing company’s celebrity model two years after Brit hooked up with them.
“So fun being a Candie’s Girl!” Spears wrote on her Twitter. “Look out for the @Candiesbrand pics of their new girl, Vanessa Hudgens!”
It seems the tweet didn’t go unnoticed by Hudgens, who gracefully responded to the pop star’s props with a message on Candie’s official Twitter page. “Thnx, @BritneySpears, you’re a tough act to follow,” the “High School Musical” actress wrote. “But, I’m so excited to be the new Candie’s girl for 2011!! — xo, Vanessa.”
The company also trumpeted Spears’ tweet about its new spokesperson. “Britney Spears just made a huge Candie’s announcement on her Twitter page!” reads a post on the brand’s Facebook page. “We’re so excited to welcome Vanessa Hudgens to the Candie’s team as our 2011 Candie’s girl!”
In a target="_blank">video posted on Facebook, Hudgens takes fans behind the scenes on her Candie’s photo shoot. Rocking floral dresses, ruffled bikinis and various accessories, the Boho chic actress glammed it up for the brand.
“Ever since I saw Fergie do the ads for Candie’s I fell in love,” she says in the promo clip. “It’s such an honor to be a Candie’s girl now. I was so excited to see the range of the Candie’s products.”
Hudgens joins a long list of starlets who have worked with the company that, in addition to Britney and Fergie, includes Hayden Panettiere, Ashlee Simpson, Hilary Duff, Kelly Clarkson, Jenny McCarthy, Vanessa Carlton, Alyssa Milano and Ashanti.
