Vanessa Hudgens is working her flirty side in her second campaign for Candie’s! The starlet — first announced as the new face of the line in January — is part of the brand’s fall campaign for Kohl’s, showcasing a series of rules known as ‘Candie’s-ism’s,’ like ‘Candie’s girls believe you can do anything in heels.’ So does Hudgens subscribe to any fashion rules? “The more I grow up, the more I’ve been comfortable with my style, therefore allowing me to really experiment with all different looks,” she told PEOPLE during the shoot, which took place in California in April. “I’m extremely inspired by the ’60s and ’70s. I adore Bianca Jagger and Cher.” But her fashion role models don’t always influence her daytime and evening looks. When asked if she prefers edgy or conservative fashions, she says it “depends on the occasion. That’s why I love Candie’s. You can rock it out or be a pink princess.” Considered a burgeoning style icon herself, she admires her contemporaries, as well. “I think Miley [Cyrus] has amazing style. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Ashley Tisdale of course … Blake Lively,” she says. “They all play with fashion and have fun with it!” (As do former Candie’s girls Britney Spears and Fergie). Hudgens’s national campaign debuts in magazines this fall, and merchandise will be available exclusively at Kohl’s and kohls.com in the months ahead. And to be a part of the campaign, Candie’s is giving fans the opportunity to choose its next TV commercial. Go to facebook.com/candies to cast your vote.

She looks like an average girl I see at the mall but with hair extensions, professional makeup and good lighting. Nothing special. Boring!

VH is very pretty. I think society is so very hard on kids. And yes to me she is still a kid. She wears hair extensions – so what! Many of us women get up everyday and straighten or curl our hair, put makeup on and clothes to make us look thinner or thicker. No one is beautiful naturally without a little assistance.

@TGW2011 “No one is beautiful naturally without a little assistance.”

This is, by far, the saddest thing I’ve read in a long time. EVERYBODY has natural inner and outer beauty. Sad that some people can’t see that in others.

Oh My gosh, stunning. She looks absolutely lovely. Her body is fantastic. Wow! what a sight. She looks like no average girl to me…The best is her smile. I’ll marry her in a second…

I think she looks cute in those photos, but she’s a beautiful young lady any way. Would it entice me to buy the shoes? No.

Johnnie on

She is way too skinny, get a little meat on those bones Vanessa!

Brandi on

Unfortunately if she got a little meat on her bones, she would be attacked by commenters for that too. Her history of not so smart choices aside, she’s gorgeous and far from average.

I have hair like this… why doesn’t she just grow her hair out? I don’t understand why people wear extensions. Just let your hair grow.
