You may remember both Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale from the Disney hit High School Musical. Time has gone by since HSM, but both Vanessa and Ashley have gone on to do some big things! Both have also gone on to be incredibly hot too! Ashley Tisdale is now 31 and has dipped her toe in lots of projects, including acting, singing, modeling and even producing! She has over 13 million Twitter followers and has been on Maxim magazine’s Hot 100 sexiest women list multiple times. So there’s really no question that Ashley Tisdale is super hot...and she is well aware of this fact. But what about Vanessa?
Vanessa Hudgens has more of a girl next door reputation. She has focused much more on her acting career, but has also done some musical projects. Vanessa has done theater on Broadway, she has been in many films and has even most recently been cast as a lead role for a television series called Powerless. Vanessa may not typically get the same sex symbol recognition that Ashley gets, but it certainly isn’t that it is not deserved! Take a look at these 15 photos that will prove that Vanessa is hotter than Ashley all day, every day!
15 Rockin’ The Bikini
Vanessa is clearly not a little girl any more. She hasn’t been for quite some time and this 28 year old knockout is proud of her smoking hot body! She realizes all too well that she is perfect just the way she is with a beautiful complexion and perfect curves. In this picture, there is proof that natural beauty goes an awfully long way. Sometimes too much makeup can just make someone look much worse. In this picture, Vanessa doesn’t need it at all and she has no doubt turned many heads (perhaps fans recognizing that she is in fact Vanessa Hudgens). But this photo proves that you don’t need double D breasts or tons of makeup to look hot. You are hot all by yourself without any extra help.
14 Looking Hot Even Dressed Down
The above photo shows Vanessa in her role as Kailani Marvin in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. The film stars Dwayne Johnson and is a sequel to the 2008 remake of Journey to the Center of the Earth. Hotness really can’t just be figured based upon a person’s ability to look great artificially with tons of intervention. Photos like this offer proof that Vanessa Hudgens looks amazing regardless of the circumstances. Wearing boots, shorts and a tank top with messy hair is still super hot. Vanessa is slumming in the sand in this shot possibly in the middle of a take or in between takes. Sure, this look is what the director had in mind, but keep in mind that not just anyone looks this great dressed down. Get it girl!
13 Best Friends Chillin’
Both Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens are incredibly close friends. They have been close for years and are frequently seen photographed together. In this picture, they are both at a game and enjoying each other’s company. This is an opportunity to look at each girl in the same photo. They are both beautiful young women for sure. But Ashley has to do a whole lot more work to look good than Vanessa. Vanessa has a big, beautiful smile which makes just about anyone even more beautiful. Her hair is beautifully styled, her outfit is fierce and Vanessa just looks absolutely perfect. There is no doubt that between the two, Vanessa has got the greater wow factor! Given the closeness of the two though, they’d probably say the same about each other.
12 Modeling a Little Bit of Fabric
There is not a whole lot covering Vanessa in this photo and it’s pretty great! She is posed in a very passive and thoughtful way, but has this half grin on her face as if she’s thinking something very specific and maybe just a little bad. Her hair has a little bit of color and is (as it often looks) wavy and looking relatively messy. Her perfect body, beautiful complexion and that pose have everyone’s mouth hanging open more than just a bit. Hudgens loves taking photos and there are plenty of them out there (she got in a bit of trouble with Disney years ago for some of her photos). This is beautifully representative of how absolutely perfect she truly is and it shows why her hotness goes well beyond that of her BFF.
11 Ashley With No Makeup
Ashley Tisdale is a beautiful young woman. There is no disputing that, but as mentioned previously, one great way to measure the beauty of a woman is how they look when they have no makeup and are absolutely natural. Exhibit A is this picture of Ashley Tisdale showing her with something of a scowl on her face, which doesn’t do anything to bring out her beauty. Sure, any of us could be caught in a pose like this, but the point is that Ms. Tisdale obviously has to work extra hard for her beauty to come through. She doesn’t want to be caught without makeup as in this photo, because she looks like a much different person. Not bad...but this isn’t the Ashley that she has put out to the world for years.
10 Vanessa With No Makeup
Exhibit B is Vanessa without her makeup and also on a “down” day. This photo was purposely taken, as evidenced by this pouty-lipped pose. The fact that she is confident and proud enough of herself to take the photo without makeup is a highly attractive quality! She has beautiful pouty lips, a flawless complexion (no wonder she endorses Neutrogena products) and great eyes! Hands down, Vanessa Hudgens takes the best photo without makeup, which makes her incredibly attractive and uber hot. She probably doesn’t care what any of us think on the subject (nor does Ashley Tisdale for that matter) but it needs to be said that hotness isn’t all about how a person looks made up at their best. Hours of preparation is not always necessary to achieve beauty.
9 More Bikini Goodness
When you have a body like Vanessa Hudgens, you buy several really great bikinis and wear them as often as humanly possible! The bikini has done such wonderful things for the female body over the years, with no better ambassador than Vanessa! In this photo, she’s in the water, but her hair is bone dry. She has a look of sheer determination on her face, leaving us to imagine so very much! Wavy, messy hair and looking great without too much makeup, this photograph gives us a peek at summertime Vanessa. She’s got a little jewelry going on, which makes this an outfit more than just swimming attire. Sure there are all kinds of girls that pull off the bikini look just as well, but fewer portray the natural beauty and sexiness of Miss Hudgens!
8 High Fashion
Even though it is awesome to see a young woman looking naturally beautiful, it is also pretty great to see how people look on the other end of that spectrum. All people from all walks of life like to get dressed up and look their very best and that is no different for celebs like Vanessa Hudgens. This photo shows her looking super sexy with a formal dress and showing a lot of her superbly toned legs! The photo also shows that makeup can completely transform a person’s appearance. With her hair pulled back tightly and with her makeup done this way, it’s almost possible you’re looking at someone else. But no...it’s Vanessa, looking super hot too! A great dress, beautiful jewelry and perfectly crafted makeup can do some really amazing things.
7 Dressed to Kill
Look at this and tell me Vanessa Hudgens is not one of the most beautiful women you have ever seen! The photo could be filtered a bit (maybe not), but overall, this is Vanessa! Showing off the top floor of her amazingly perfect body, along with perfectly flowing hair and great makeup at just the right time makes this a tribute to how beautiful Vanessa really is, combined with just wonderful photography. Let’s not forget how important the art of photography is in the process. This photographer has some skill for sure, but it is so easy to do when your talent is so perfect. Vanessa is dressed perfectly and shows off every bit of her hotness in this brilliant photo. I’m not sure if Ashley Tisdale could do nearly as well.
6 Funky and Fun
Something else to consider about hotness is how a person can get out of their normal daily look and try something much different. In this picture, Vanessa is doing all kinds of stuff differently, and it looks awesome! Trying for a dirty blonde look and with a lot of jewelry (including what looks like bedazzling above her eyebrows) she pulls off this funky look as if it is how she dresses every day. She has a confident look on her face and the outfit is amazingly stylish. Vanessa Hudgens isn’t trying to show off too much skin, but still showing us just enough to remind us that there is a perfect body under there. Her eyes and facial expression tell a very seductive story as well. It’s all great Vanessa and we’re definitely digging it!
5 The Hottest Rizzo Ever!
Vanessa Hudgens played the part of Rizzo in the 2016 Grease Live! TV movie. Bright red lipstick and lots of makeup was the mark of a bad girl in the 50s. Anyone that saw the original movie with Stockard Channing as Rizzo remembers her being very much a carefree bad girl that is way ahead of her time. Rizzo is the leader of the Pink Ladies and seems to have more confidence than everyone else. Vanessa plays this role and does so absolutely perfectly! Looking at Rizzo, she’s got the sexiness of the character down perfectly. Her facial expression shows her confidence and the outfit reflects the 1950s era of the movie, but is still wildly hot even today! She played the character of Rizzo perfectly...maybe better than Channing herself!
4 Short, Straight Hair
So here is Vanessa Hudgens displaying a darker, more secretive look with shorter, straight hair. Her hair is always beautiful, but this photo shows her with an even different look. Instead of the messy wave to her hair that she often does, she went with a more conservative and straight look for this picture. She has dark eyes and usually displays this darker look with her makeup, but her expression is very thoughtful and mysterious. She is showing her shoulders and looking quite fashionable as well without feeling the need to wear any jewelry. At first glance, she gives off a Mila Kunis vibe with this look, which is by far not a bad thing! Vanessa is just showing off her dark and sexy side, proving her overall hotness is off the charts!
3 Enjoying the Outdoors
Vanessa is on location for many of her smoking hot photos. Here, she is outside leaned against a rock. Wearing a stylish outfit that is young and professional. We all agree by this point that she has it in her to be uber-sexy in just about any situation! Some people have one look and only one look and that’s what they do. Vanessa can insert her brand of hotness into just about any situation. Looking in this photo, she’s showing her style and showing that as a young woman, she can be both classy and wildly attractive at the same time. Her hair and makeup perfectly accent everything we already love about Vanessa, without being overstated. I’d like to see just about anyone else do as good with so many different looks.
2 Red Carpet Hotness
Ahh, the red carpet! The red carpet giveth and the red carpet taketh away for so many. The carpet has always been very good to young Vanessa. She also knows how to work the carpet to her advantage. Vanessa is a fun and energetic young woman that isn’t afraid to be photographed...ever. In this picture, she is posing with a look of mischief on her mind. The outfit is off the charts hot, showing off her amazing legs and perfect frame. Vanessa has always looked great at formal events and on the red carpet, partly because she has fun with photographers. This confidence and freedom she displays to paparazzi help the rest of us to see her truly shine! Not just any celebrity can pull off her confidence and her high level of sexy all the time.
1 You Be The Judge
So is it really fair to choose who is the hotter between two beautiful young women like Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale? I mean, these two best friends are each highly attractive young women with lots of talent and a little luck to have had such successful careers and to maintain such a close friendship. It would seem based upon the versatility of Vanessa Hudgens and her look that she has a natural beauty that just doesn’t stop. She will long be remembered for acting talent as well as her gorgeous appearance in many different looks. But hey, everybody sees beauty differently and that’s why there is certainly someone for everyone. Some may find Ashley much hotter than Vanessa. But one thing is clear...both Ashley and Vanessa are super sexy and absolutely over the moon hot!
