Sure, it’s the dead of winter, but not for Vanessa Hudgens! Candie’s just announced that it signed the young actress to be the new face of its spring collection, which means she’s posing in summer-friendly bikinis and floral maxi dresses for the campaign. And it’s a big job for the 22-year-old—she’s taking over for Britney Spears, who fronted the collection last season. “It’s such an honor to be a Candie’s girl,” Hudgens said of the brand, which is only sold at Kohl’s stores. “We had a blast shooting the campaign.” Check out an exclusive behind-the-scenes image of Hudgens on set at the Pink Motel in Sun Valley, California that Candie’s shared with InStyle (right).

The TV Guide channel announced plans to launch The Nail Files, a show about The Painted Nail in Los Angeles and its owner Katie Cazorla (inset), whose celebrity clients include Hilary Duff (pictured), Vanessa Hudgens and Paula Abdul. “At first I thought working with celebs would be scary and nerve wracking,” Cazorla told InStyle. “It’s not. When people come to get their nails done, they let their guard down—they want to chit chat and relax.” The eight-episode show will chronicle her work with celebrity clients when it premieres this summer.
