Less Hollywood… more Stepford! Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson look old before their years in dowdy dresses at Spring Breakers photocall
15:19 GMT, 5 September 2012
Judging from shots of the filming of the movie, the girls spent the majority of the film wearing little more than bikinis.
So when it came to choosing outfits for a photocall to promote Spring Breakers at the Venice Film Festival today, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine understandably opted for more sophisticated outfits.
But instead of looking elegant and glamorous, the quartet ended up looking much older than their years in the dresses, which appeared dowdy when worn by the starlets.
Less Hollywood… more Stepford! Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Rachel Korine and Ashley Benson looked older than their years at the photocall for Spring Breakers in Venice today (Wednesday)
Screen stars: The quartet wore significantly less as they were seen shooting Spring Breakers last year
Vanessa, 23, led the way in a white prom-style dress,
featuring a black lace overlay. She teamed the dress with a pair of
black heeled sandals and a retro hairstyle, which again succeeded in
making her look older.
Selena, 20, also opted for a black
lace dress, which had intricate gold detailing down the front. The
pretty brunette finished her outfit off with a pair of black strappy
sandals, and wore her hair in an up do, with a few tendrils left loose
around her face.
Pretty Little Liars star Ashley, 22, went for a different type of look in her off-the-shoulder cream dress, accessorised with a gold metallic belt and a pair of nude heels.
Lace is more: Selena, 20, and Vanessa, 23, both opted for black lace-style dresses which did little for them
Smile! The girls posed up with co-star James Franco and director Harmony Korine at the photocall
While the dress was stylish in its simplicity, it did little to flatter Ashley's otherwise petite figure.
Rachel Korine completed the quartet
at the photocall, and again missed the fashion mark in her polkadot blue
and yellow wrap dress, which she teamed with a pair of less than
attractive red shoes.
The girls' modest outfits are a far
cry from the increasingly daring outfits they were seen wearing while
filming Spring Breakers last year.
Dressed to impress: Ashley and Rachel went all out but looked dowdy rather than glamorous
The movie tells the story of a group of friends who head to Florida
for spring break, but can't afford the lavish holiday they want, so
decide to rob a restaurant.
They later find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer, played by James Franco, who wants them to do some dirty work.
The film, directed by Kids writer Harmony Korine, hits movie theatres in 2013.
