Having entered the industry more than a decade ago, the 28-year-old has rocketed from a pre-teen Disney queen to a full-fledged triple threat and style savant all rolled into one. While some would expect so many years in the spotlight would chip away at one's self-esteem—particularly in regard to the physical—Hudgens' relationship with her outer shell is solid.
"I've always just had a lot of self-love," she told E! News. "I think God blessed me with this ability to accept who I am and to be able to spread the message to others that they should, too."
Those expressive childhood roots take center stage in her current signature aesthetic: a breezy, '70s bohemian starlet. "I always go back to the '70s. That's my home base," she told E! News. "I just love the free-spirited vibe the '70s bring when I decide to dress that way or do my hair or makeup that way. I just feel really free, and there's no better way to be."

Don't get her wrong—she still loves a good mascara and concealer, but even when picking a product, she looks beyond the shade and to an eco-friendly label.
"The amount of damage that human beings have done to the planet is extremely disturbing and if we continue to go at this rate, we're going to mess up our planet really bad, so anyway that we can look out for our environment I think is really important," she said.
"At the end of the day, I do what I think is beautiful and I'm not gonna let anyone tell me otherwise," she said.
