Ashley Tisdale has much to be excited about when it comes to life after East High School. Following the third installment of the popular High School Musical, Tisdale has focused on her CW show, Hellcats, in which she plays a cheerleader. And while she still loves her narcissistic character in HSM, Tisdale said there are certain things about Hellcats that she prefers. “It’s awesome to be able to work out for your job all the time,” Tisdale told PEOPLE of her role that often has her in sports bras and short shorts. “I am constantly working out with my trainer. I’m on a more healthy diet. I have a cheat day, though. It’s a very healthy way of living, I must say. It’s a lot of fun.” Her cheat food? “Something involving bread or pasta.” But the 25-year-old still embraces her days as a female antagonist on the Disney series, as well as her former cast mates. “The cast is growing up and we’re doing our own projects but I have to say there is a tight bond with all of us,” Tisdale told PEOPLE Sunday while hosting a party at Las Vegas’s Wet Republic. “We went through something that is so lucky and it’s something that does not happen every day and we have that connection. They are my best friends… It’s like second nature to us.” –Mark Gray

Vanessa Hudgens Sounds Off On 25 Things You Don't Know About Her

We already know a few things about Vanessa Hudgens — how much we love her in the High School Musical movies, how well-dressed she always is and how adorable she is with boyfriend Zac Efron. But the star revealed 25 things about herself to SELF this month that you might not know, including tidbits on her fashion, beauty and workout habits. As far as shopping, she says her “biggest splurge was a purse from Louis Vuitton. Ashley Tisdale and I each got one in different colors when we were on tour in Mexico. We call it our friendship purse. I don’t want to say how much it cost. I don’t like revisiting that place.” But she will admit to loving shopping online (just like us!). “I’m an online shopaholic: ShopPlanetBlue.com, Shopbop.com, IntermixOnline.com. I love that you can see everything, rather than fishing through the racks. And the surprise of getting it in the mail is like a present to yourself.” And how does she keep herself looking so good in all her designer duds? “My secret to flat abs is pilates.” But she also loves the challenge of being in a class at the gym, saying “I like sitting in the front row of cycling class. I feel like everybody behind me is looking forward, and that pushes me to do my best. I look at myself in the mirror and get this really ferocious, angry look on my face like I’m about to kill someone. It’s crazy.” As for her beauty routine, she says less is more most of the time, “Sometimes I feel prettier without makeup. You take it off and you’re like, ‘Oh, there I am!'” But there are exceptions to every rule. “Red lips make me feel sexy. Put on red lipstick and it brings out the vixen in you.” Read more about Vanessa at SELF.com.

We first spotted Nicky Hilton in her whimsical Vogue t-shirt earlier in the week, and then we spotted Ashley Tisdale in her equally adorable illustrated T-shirt yesterday on a shopping spree at Kitson. Turns out the hot tees come from Trash & Luxury, a glam new line by L.A. designer Hushi Mortezaie. It seems he got his quirky style from his mentor Patricia Field– the famed Sex & the City stylist responsible for SJP and cast’s outlandishly fashionable costumes. When it comes to his own line, Hushi Mortezaie designs T-shirts that meld a glamorous spirit with a hint of comfort– and what is more glamorous than Vogue? For the first Trash & Luxury collection, Hushi takes his inspiration from ’80s-era New York, the real-life dream world of Los Angeles, Hollywood by night — and a magazine that’s earned its own song. Love the Vogue tees? Get Ashley’s Trash & Luxury tops, $48, at shopkitson.com and Nicky’s, $48 , also at shopkitson.com
