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

I really dont lke Ashley’s dress. too conservative!! but when did ashley turn her hair dark???!!!!! It’s gorgeous on her!

Those dress’s are ugly especially Ashley’s. Maybe it’s because she’s petite but that huge belt does not look flattering on her, it overpowers her frame.

These girls have great taste. They dress classy. They inspire me to wear more skirts and dresses.. its nice to see young girls like them covered.

Honestly, I do not like Ashley’s dress that much, I like Vanessa’s, very exotic. But I don’t think Vanessa looks very pretty, she looks kind of messy with her hair. Ashley does look prettier and classy, I just wish her dress was prettier!

I love this look, and I love these two stars, but I would have to say I like Ashley’s look alot better, I love the dress and the belt really makes it look good. Vanessa’s dress dosent really need the belt, and the dress overall really isnt that flattering, it’s too long, Ashley really seems to know how to dress her body type, Vanessa needs to get away from the really long dresses.

Vanessa’s dress is totally over doing it… i mean she is a disney character for gods sake. i vote for ashley!

As great as they both look, i dont like ashley’s dress, and i HATE (with a fiery passion) vanessa’s thing for florals on her dresses. Her short dresses are much better.
