She's one of the world's most high-profile young actresses.
But Vanessa Hudgens could have passed for any other young New Yorker as she stepped out to do her grocery shopping last Friday.
A far cry from her red carpet image, the High School Musical star went dressed down and bare-faced as she walked around Chelsea with boyfriend Austin Butler.

Although she's going to have to start promoting her new film Spring Breakers soon, the actress is clearly making the most of her down time.
Embracing geek chic, the 23-year-old star wore a pair of large-lens glasses as she strolled around her hometown and wore a grungy beanie hat over her long, black hair.
Vanessa clearly didn't care about maintaining her glamorous A-list image, and seemed happy to be out and about in the casual outfit.

The Bandslam actress took her grungy look to the extreme, wearing baggy blue tracksuit bottoms and a grey and read hoodie.
She tucked the tracksuits bottoms into a pair of studded, Ugg-style boots, clearly opting for comfort over style.
Vanessa added a retro-style denim jacket over the top of the hoodie, which drowned her tiny frame, and walked along with a headphone in one of her ears.

Chatting to her 21-year-old boyfriend, the actress looked completely relaxed and happy to be out without a scrap of make-up on.
She recently spoke out about her first ever sex scene, which will feature in her new film.
Speaking to Glow magazine, she admitted that filming the mnage trois was not a pleasant experience:
'It was very nerve-racking for me. I told my agent that I never want to do it ever again,' she said.
