London: Vanessa Hudgens, who became a household name playing angel-faced good girl Gabriella in the High School Musical films, has undergone a startling makeover.
The 22-year-old stepped out at New York Fashion Week looking more a goth girl than a teen queen, reported the Daily Mail.
And to truly ensure there are no more Disney roles in her future, Hudgens decided to get her first tattoo.
The actress got inked by famed tattoo artist Bang Bang, the man responsible for Rihanna's body art.
Earlier in the day Hudgens was spotted arriving at Milk Studios in New York wearing a floor-length velvet coat to the show, which she took off to unveil another velvet dress with cross embellishments from the designer's fall 2010 collection.
She wore a pair of clunky biker boots with a split toe. The unflattering style has been seen on Sarah Jessica Parker before.
Just last week Hudgens was still holding on to her innocent Disney persona by posing for happy snaps with Disney characters at Disney World in Florida.
But it was a very different story this week, as she went from fresh-faced to dark and mysterious as she rubbed shoulders with the edgy fashion crowd.
Hudgens 's sudden style transformation comes after her unexpected break-up with co-star Zac Efron in December after four years of dating.
