    she looks adorable!

  • Milli

    she looks great, dont judge the cover, wait till you see her w/o the jacket

  • whatever

    What the heck are you wearing V?

  • Cutie

    Austin is taking over her entire career. She has her own career to worry about. She doesn’t need to follow him constantly to New York. There is no reason for her to be there right now. I think she is being way to clingy after her breakup with Zac because she doesn’t want this to form into another long distance relatinship. However, I don’t necessarily think that it is healthy for her to be glued by his side all the time. What’s really pathetic in my opinion, is that she is/has been doing more projects than he has (he’s basically new to the acting world), yet she’s the one who feels the need to follow him around. And frankly, I think he kind of gets annoyed by it to. If she continues to do this, I don’t think their “relationship” or whatever you want to call it will last much longer (not like it would last that long anyways).

  • IMO

    Looking good. It must be so cold I agree Milli she has coat on so you can’t tell what the dress looks like. She still looks so pretty.

  • jk

    gosh… it is so annoying to see her in ny again. she shouldnt let what austin does, affect her life. gosh… this is getting old. seems like the only way she can maintain a relationship (if thats what you wish to call it) with him is by going everywhere with him, which in the long run inst really healthy for a relationship. compensation probably… she doesnt have anything to do so by following her “boyfriend” around is the only way she can draw attention to herself. just sickening really…

  • http://Yellyefron Yarelly

    she looks georgeous but her boyfriend omg! what a horrible thing look his face its like visual contamination

  • someone unnamed

    i don’t really think that they’re relationship will last. she seems fine when hes not there. if they were to breakup tomorrow i dont think she would be too upset about it… i just think hes a guy who she takes interest in and shes having fun with him for the time being. i dont necessarily think that its “love”. for one thing, the pda displayed is much too over the top to be love, mainly just for attention if you ask me.(this is just my opinion but, when she was with zac they were kind of like a “power couple” and everyone liked them together. now that they are broken up, she has lost a decent amount of popularity, so she feels the need to compensate by showing the public her gross pda make out sessions) and another thing, is because she was set up with him by a friend, i dont think it was really was meant for a long lasting relationship, nor does it seem to have the potential to last for that long.

  • Strawberryluva

    she has never looked at austin the way she used to look at zac… desperate for attention with austin seems like it to me

  • Hugsandkisses

    I don’t necessarily hate them as a couple (I liked her with Zac better), but I respect her decision. Although after watching the links that ‘i dont believe it’ posted, I do have to agree. It’s different when you see it on video than on pictures.On pictures, it’s a still shot, on video it moves and you see more of it. I’ve seen the pictures of Vanessa and Austin that were on the videos before. But ater seeing the videos, I think Austin has this arrogance to him that Zac never had. He seems like he likes the spotlight and I know that Zac had said things about how he liked to keep parts of their relationship private. Austin doesn’t seem like a very conservative person. However, I don’t think it’s really Vanessa desperate for attention, but Austin. I think Vanessa was better off with Zac because he kept her grounded, but that’s my opinion. No mean comments preferably. I didn’t say anything that deserves to be commented badly upon. I never said I hated them or anything so, I just was staing what I think. And some people really need to calm down about what they post in their comments here… gosh.

  • seeul8ter

    theyre probably going to breakup soon. he is probably getting annoyed at her following him to ny all the time….

  • MO

    Awww.. this is just too cute. Wish Zac and Vanessa were still together! Maybe one day….

  • IMO

    @Cutie: IMO no one should judge, you don’t know why. Maybe she is just spending as much time as she can because she will be leaving soon to promote her SB. She looks happy and why go alone .If they last or not it’s their business and between them.

  • Sayingsomething

    Sorry… but Austin Butler is UGLY… with Vanessa Hudgens. It’s a shame that she and Zac broke up. They had a special connection and a special realtionship, Austin is just some random guy she met through Ashley Tisdale. Everyone can see the chemsitry that Zac and Vanessa had. Their costars, fans, even directors. It’s obvious that she had something very special with Zac that she will never have with Austin, or any other guy. You can see by the way they looked at each other, that Vanessa and Zac truely loved each other. Even though Vanessa may have moved on in a new (PR realtionship), that doesn’t mean she “loves” Austin more than she loved Zac. I think Vanessa still cares about Zac even though they’re not together because he was a special part of her life. I think she still loves him, and he loves her, but they’re both very confused at this point in their life. I think that seeing other people is a healthy thing for them. But I’m still hoping that they will get back together sometime in the future.. even though the chances of that happening are very slim.

  • waiting

    austin will leave vanessa when he gets to where he wants to be as a star. hes using her as a crutch to rise to stardom… then shell realize that she was better off with zac

  • maybethistime

    zac still wants vanessa back. in recent interviews he looks so teary eyed when asked about dating and stuff. she should relaize that and break up with austin whos using her for fame

  • sucks4u

    honestly, if anything, people should be blaming ashley tisdale that vanessa and austin are together… shet set them up. i think that if ashley hadnt done that, zac and vanessa would have eventually gotten back together. so if you HAVE to blame anyone, blame ashley tisdale

  • xo

    Don’t like the outfit, but I love that she’s going to be going to Fashion Week this week :)

  • march

    i think that when austin and ashley costared together, he had a crush on her. i think he was attracted to her, but obviously she had a boyfriend at the time, and is like 6 years older than him. she was good friends with him, but wasnt looking for a relationship with him because she was dating scott. zac and vanessa split, and ashley is friends with both of them. maybe she saw that vanessa was upset about the breakup and introduced her to austin so things wouldnt get awkward between her and austin. but yeah… dont like vanessa and austin together

  • smiley

    “The one thing that I can say is that the minute I met Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens at auditions and I paired them up together, there was something about their chemistry and their connection with each other that was just right.”They’re amazing, they are Troy and Gabriella and they are meant to be together.–”Kenny Ortega

  • so what?

    i dont know… looking at their body language, austin doesnt seem very interested in her.. hes just awkwardly standing next to her.

  • jill
  • kim

    hes probably thinking that she is an embarassment to him with her ugly outifit… and further more, he doesnt seem like he wants her there. he looks so uncomfortable next to her…. honestly, i think he is concerned about his career. he doesnt want vanessa to be with him 24/7. and frankly having her seen with him everywhere isnt going to necessarily help his career… its just embarassing. i predict a breakup very soon

  • i dont believe it

    ugh… hate him. he walks around as if he doesnt have a care in the world. walks with such arrogance…. zac was much better for her. austin enjoys being seen by the papz, its pathetic

  • sunny

    Austin isn’t interested in Vanessa (and if he was once upon a time, he sure doesn’t look like it anymore… awkwardly standing next to her) So yeah, he must find her embarrassing to stand next to. He kind of seems like he is leaning away from her…

  • sunny

    Don’t see any chemistry between them They don’t seem in love… doesn’t really seem like they are dating. And when pda photos come out, you remember that they have a “relationship”. But he doesn’t seem interested in her anymore, so I think there will eventually be a breakup soon.

  • coco

    his fists are clenched… doesn’t seem comfortable with her. and yeah @sunny; he does kind of seem like he is leaning away

  • teddy


  • sunny

    @teddy: Who cares?…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

  • kim

    Yeah… he stands like a stick

  • Haters Suck!

    For the love of god zac and Vanessa are over, done, finished, terminated, broken up, seperated. Not sure how many other ways I can phrase this. Please try and understand that.

  • Valerie

    Why is everyone making this about Austin? The kid is doing his own thing and so is she. If you don’t like them together so what? fact of the matter is that they are and have been for awhile. Her and Zac are over and whether you like it or not she seems happy. Austin isn’t to blame at all. What the heck does it have to do with anything if Austin is conservative or not? Vanessa isn’t conservative either… so whats the real issue?

  • Valerie

    @IMO: I totally agree with you!

  • Emma

    It’s her life.
    And she has the right to date whom she likes to do so
    Who do you think you are? No matter what you say, she will not return to Zac

  • Lawrence

    They look like two kids at a prom, thats sweet.

  • Lawrence


    They hope by stating the same things over and over again it will magically make it true!*lol*, its both sad and pathetic really.

  • jadeomg

    haters haters haters!
    right now its austin and vanessa. you want zac and vanessa build a time machine and go back to the past.
    regular people acting like they know vanessa and calling her “clingy” and an attention seeker. what if she prefers new york to california huh?
    just because you are her “fans” does that give you a right to try and control her personal life by talking crap about her boyfriend?
    she is an entertainer and not your friend! her job is to make movies for you guys. just because her life is featured in magazines does not mean it is your life. she is a person who wants to be happy. let her be.

  • jus sayin

    ive always thought that they dont quite “fit” if you get what im saying. i dunno its always looked like its being thrown at us especially with the pda and that didnt seem like something vanessa would do (or maybe she has always been like that we just never saw that because zac was private).i dont think ashley intended for them to last this long and neither did they, i mean when vanessa broke up with zac, she was also single for quite a while. it didnt even last between her and josh cuz he was more of a friend. just my observations.
    either way i still think that this is and will always be lust. purely.

  • love

    and some people have to grow up and realize that zac and vanessa never get back together he deserve a better woman than her!

  • mags

    I love u vanessa, your smile makes me happy, BUT i don’t like yr dress/hat its look like halloween costume, hehe!,

  • babyvlover

    Well, I gotta admit that I’ve always loved Vanessa and never judged for anything. But since a while she’s totally annoying on my opinion. She did so many movies the past years and pushed her career forward and of course she deserves a break but she seems to be the kinda girl who puts her boyfriend over anything – means over family & friends (who are in LA). And I really don’t like people who are like that. Of course she’s scared because her relationship with Zac didn’t work because of the distance but she’s like Austin dog right now. Follows him wherever he goes. At the beginning it seemed like he depended on her but now it seems like she’s totally depending on him. She doesn’t care about her fam and firends anymore. Austin, Austin, Austin… her religion. This is disgusting and I never thought she’s such a kinda person. She always seemed like such a free-spirit, bubbly, carefree, independent & strong. And what’s left? Well, not much for me.
    I always compared Ashley and Vanessa and I always loved V and hated A but I gotta admit that Ashley isn’t like V. For Ash friends and fam come first and she still maintains to handle everything and not put someone over the other. That’s for me a strong and independent woman, not like V. But it’s my opinion but not my life and so V should do what she wants but this won’t work out in a positive way.
    V, your a dissapointent. You were my role model but like you behave now I don’t think girls should look up to you.

  • lillian

    Jesus, I’m so sick to see this zanessa obsessed people post over and over again! Can you go and dream and live in happy zanessaland, where Zac and Vanessa did never break up and got married and live happily ever after, and let real life for the rest of us? Thanks

    They look lovely, Vanessa seems to really love New York, she is happier when she is there. I think no having the paparazzis following her everywhere helps!

  • Phliss

    All you saying that she is in New York only for Austin…. are you dumb? Don’t you see that she loves New York with a passion? are you blind?!

  • Haters Suck!

    You’ve got some nerve you know that. How dare you say Vanessa doesn’t care about her family and friends. You don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. Just because she’s with Austin means she’s forgotten about her family and friends. That’s ridiculous. Stop telling Vanessa how to live her life when you have no idea what’s going on. She knows what shes doing, you don’t.

  • kelly martineau

    Big lips isn’t smiling or non thing in pitchures. Vanessa is Austin shadow has to following him every where. V can’t be single she wants a man in her life. Austin is ugly. But does v do all day long with Austin working on that supied tv show on cw channel? V should start having kids and stop working. She hasn’t work 2 years.

  • sunny

    @jus sayin: of course they don’t “fit”… they were set up by a mutual friend.. it would be kind of awkward of them to decline each other when ashley set them up. and you can see by their body language that he is uncomfortable with her there… his fists are clenched, he looks as though he is leaning away from her. so their relationship looks pretty much done in a month or so..

  • Cutie

    @babyvlover: I agree, although she is seen with her sister mutiple places so I guess she still cares about her family. And yes to everyone who mentioned it… there does seem to be some tension between them. He in fact, does appear to be distant from her, and his hands are clenched so that also indicates some tension.

  • Haters Suck!

    You see what you want to see and nothing more.

  • sunny

    And you know why there seems to be tension? (Because obviously I’m not the only one that noticed it)Austin isn’t interested in Vanessa (and if he was once upon a time, he sure doesn’t look like it anymore… awkwardly standing next to her) So yeah, he must find her embarrassing to stand next to. He kind of seems like he is leaning away from her… so their thing you call a “relationshp” is pretty much DUNZO in the next couple months or so

  • teddy

    @sunny: What the frick do you know! Absolutely nothing… stop trying to micro-manage their lives… And if they’re going to break up, then oh well, it will happen when/if it’s time. But who are you to say when they will break up? You can’t predict the future… so fricking shut up!!
