The sexy librarian look is a staple, thanks to a great pair of spectacles. Vanessa Hudgens' wore glasses when she nailed the aforementioned look, pairing totally '50s curls with vintage-y, pointy specs. She added a choker and burgundy lips, each of which are very '90s. The look could have drifted into severe territory, since a lot of elements were involved, but Hudgens kept it in check and while she took inspo from a few decades, the end result was decidedly '90s — likely due to her necklace and her lipstick hue.
So, yeah, the '90s are always in when it comes to fashion, be it for nostalgia or when the decade's signatures are worn by someone in the current era. The latter was the case for Hudgens in this selfie.
The singer and actress also revealed her hair secret in her Insta post, captioning this pic by saying, "Hot rollers got me feelin ma self." So she achieved this retro look with hot rollers! Who knew? You can easily achieve the same big and beautiful look by using a big barrel curling iron. Add some dark lipstick, some vintage-looking specs, and some other simple details and you too can master the look.
Hudgens expression also upped her overall mysterious vibe.
