Candies Girls: Vanessa Hudgens vs. Bristol Palin
Vanessa Hudgens is the newest face of Candies, how does she compare to Bristol Palin?
Vanessa Hudgens is the new face of Candies and her – very sexy – promo pictures hit the internet today. Candies is known for their shoes and clothes that are aimed mostly at girls who are in their tweens to early 20’s so in keeping with that theme the company regularly features celebs to promote their products that connect with their younger audience. The interesting thing about using Vanessa is that she is a stark contrast to one of Candies’ other spokeswomen, Bristol Palin.
Vanessa Hudgens’ official campaign will start in March when they begin releasing their new line of products. Vanessa is the newest in a growing line of hot girls to represent as Candies Girls. Hudgens is replacing icon Britney Spears who has held the job for the last two years. Spears had replaced Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie. Britney Spears took her Twitter account to wish Vanessa well tweeting, “So fun being a Candie’s Girl! Look out for pics of their new girl, Vanessa Hudgens.” Vanessa replied with a tweet of her own “Thnx, @BritneySpears, you’re a tough act to follow…but, I’m so excited to be the new Candies Girl for 2011!”
Vanessa is the perfect choice for the job. She looks fantastic in a bikini, has a face is beautiful and full of personality and has a connection to the younger demographic that Candies covets. But, as I was saying above, she is a stark contrast to the other Candies’ Girl Bristol Palin. Bristol isn’t a model for the company, but she does serve as their ambassador. Candies supports her as she goes out and gives speeches and participates in town hall style meetings that are aimed and helping prevent teen pregnancy. Bristol does work on helping to prevent teen pregnancy, but she focuses her efforts on abstinence. She promotes waiting to have sex until you get married, even though she herself didn’t do that. There are some who say she is the perfect spokesperson because she made mistakes and now has to deal with them, but to others they say that just teaching them abstinence doesn’t teach them to protect themselves if they do have sex so instead of just breaking their abstinence vow, they often end up pregnant.
While you can argue the pros and cons of abstinence education all day, it is interesting to me that Vanessa basically is everything that Bristol is against. Vanessa spent several years in a long term relationship with Zac Efron and while they never spoke about their sex life it was assumed that they were sleeping together. She also wears very little in a few of these pictures and in the past she has sent nude pictures of herself to boyfriends, some of which have leaked to the public. So it is almost as if Candies wants to promote being sexy, flirty and looking for a good time on one hand while promoting not having sex and being more conservative on the other. It looks like, as of now, Candies is getting to have their cake and eat it to.
