It was her party, and Vanessa Hudgens could have cried if she wanted to... but, instead, she chose to get really dressed up.
The actress celebrated her 21st birthday last night by dining at EAST Restaurant and Bar in North Hollywood with attractive boyfriend Zac Efron, Ashley Tisdale and others.
While Efron donned casual attire for the affair, Hudgens sent a message: I'm all grown up now! Look at her outfit:
Of course, a short skirt and fancy hairstyle isn't the only sign that Hudgens has moved on from High School Musical.
Her next starring role is in Sucker Punch, a movie directed by Zack Snyder, best known for the bloody and violent 300, among other R-rated flicks.
