Vanessa Hudgens picks a few bracelets out with designer Heather Betts during the Haute Betts Beastly suite held at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills on Thursday afternoon (February 24).
While the 22-year-old actress couldn’t stay long for a one-on-one with JJJ, we did get to chat with Heather about the pieces Vanessa took with her.
During the collection preview, Vanessa wore a Top Shop suit, an Irit Design necklace, a Silver and Turquoise ring by Herndon Heald and Badgley Mischka top.
JJJ: What pieces was Vanessa drawn to from the Beastly collection?
Heather Betts: It was great, the first thing she did was go after this bracelet, the Flutter, and said, ‘Oh my gosh, I wore this in the movie!’ She was so great and really receptive to the whole line. The bracelet was actually in my first collection I ever made and they’re very basic. Most of the pieces in the line are one-of-a-kind.”

JJJ: Did you notice which colors or styles stood out to Vanessa the most?
HB: “I did. I had picked something out with a bit of lighter color and she told me that she doesn’t really wear a lot of color in her jewels. It’s crazy, right? I thought, after meeting her, she seems very earthy, so I’m thinking a bit of color. But no, she goes for the darker tones.
JJJ: After meeting Vanessa, what pieces would you pick out for her?
HB: Now having met her, anything dark (laughs). All of my browns or dark blues. I have a navy piece in my classic collection that she liked. Anything with skulls, anything that has the daggers. We had gone over to look at the Daggers & Debutantes and with the bracelets, I had picked out a red and green one mixed in with the black. I had thought she wasn’t going to like it, but she did.
JJJ: We noticed Vanessa was definitely drawn to the headpieces.
HB: She was. Headpieces are kind of a staple with me and she went right to those, actually. They’re very Vanessa (laughs). She picked the Malibu and Vintage Cali headpieces. She also picked the Madam.
Stay tuned — we may be having a giveaway!
