Vanessa Hudgens, is that even you?! She looks so unbelievably different here, it’s hard NOT to do a double-take when you first glance at the actress’s new fashion editorial in this month’s Paper magazine. The Spring Breakers star has totally ditched her classic California girl style for Dior, Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton in the boundary-pushing spread…sort of like a mashup of Joan Jett rebelliousness with a bit of David Bowie glam thrown in for good measure. Her shaggy mullet, paired with her dramatic kohl-rimmed cat eyes, berry lips, and edgy fresh-off-the-runway outfits, is Vanessa Hudgens as we’ve NEVER seen her before. Think ’90s chokers, bold brows, and fearlessly defiant poses that practically pop off the pages. See more of her glam rock transformation below!

The Paper crew have left no sartorial stone unturned in Vanessa’s glam makeover…I mean, just CHECK her nail art! The swirly splashes of gold, black, and red are a metallic cosmic explosion that’s trendy without being too in-your-face.

From the zillions of interviews Vanessa and the rest of the cast have done leading up to Harmony Korine’s new flick, the message is coming through loud and clear: Spring Breakers is going to be dark, edgy, and totally off-the-wall unexpected. And if Vanessa’s Paper cameo is any indication? Well, let’s just say she’s leaving her Disney teen queen status in the dust. The former High School Musical star DOES give a nod to Mickey Mouse in her glittery Marc Jacobs sweater, though. And how could she not? As Miley Cyrus and Hayley Williams prove, mice are totally having a moment.
