Belt Your Dresses Like Ashley and Vanessa!

09/05/2007 at 06:00 AM ET


We already predicted that belts would be big for fall, and Hollywood’s hottest young stars are at the forefront of the trend! Both Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale cinched their waists at the London premiere of High School Musical 2 over the weekend. Ashley added a thick black leather belt to her delicate Tadashi Shoji silver dress, while Vanessa topped her colorful Trina Turk with a skinny belt from Streets Ahead with gold hardware. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite belts online that remind us of these stylish stars’.

For a thin belt like Vanessa’s, try this Skinny Patent Belt, $9 at, or this extra-thin “Skinny Minnie” Belt from, $18. Or splurge on this Melamed Skinny Sash Belt, $90 at

For a wide belt like Ashley’s, try this Circa Covered Buckle Belt, $17 at or this Wide Leather Waist Belt, $20 at Splurge on this luxe Hobo International ‘Elite’ Quilted Leather Belt, $128 at

My fave is Vanessa.

Just when I thought Ashley hit it right with the dress she wore to the HSM2 premier {the bubble dress}. This dress she’s wearing probably would have been cute if it didn’t have the feather thing {or whatever it is} going on at the top of the dress. I don’t like Ashley’s hair color either. I do love the chunky belt though. I don’t know, I guess I prefer Ashley’s funky style, but she can still look good dressing elegant, I just don’t like the feather thing going on at the top of the dress, and I really don’t care for her hair color.

I like Vanessa’s dress. The pattern is different. I love the pink color, it just really brightens things up. Plus I think she’s still young and she can most definitely pull off almost any look. Whether she’s going for the elegant sophistication look or the funky look, Vanessa looks great both ways. I love her hair also. I’m not crazy over the skinny belt though, but it looks nice with this dress.

I actually think Ashley would look great in Vanessa’s dress and Vanessa would look great in Ashley’s dress. That’s just my opinion. :)

I think both the girls are cute. but I really like Ashley she is cute and funny and dresses appropiately for her age now on the other hand Vanessa needs something shorter and cuter, I really think she can do better with her style.

I think they both look so cute in the dresses.

Both of their dresses are great! And I love Ashley’s overall look so much! For some reason, Vannessa’s face looks washed out…

I like Vanessa’s dress. Like the other Katelyn who posted, I think it is a bit too long for her body type.
Ashley’s dress is ok, except for the thing at the top. I hate the big belts…I prefer skinny belts. I don’t like how in every picture Ashley is in, she has the “smirk”. Like, “I am better than you!!!”. Her cluch looks like a seashell. I like the color, because it doesn’t match anything she is wearing and it stands out.
I like Vanessa’s dress. I love the pattern. But the dress might look a bit better being a halter…not sure though. Or a very simple necklace.

i love! the dress of vanessa!!!!


now ash well i do not like much her dress, hehe but its ok.. is cute.. ^.^


i have to say i love ashley as an idol but the dress is a lil poofy[just a little]. but love the hair and belt! and on vanessa that dress so suits her! and the skinny belt works with it! i have to say v’s dress is kinda better [sorry ashley–ur still my idol no matter what!]
