vanessa hudgens on dvf x roxy and “spring breakers”

The DVF x Roxy collaboration hit stores today, which means surf attire just got a little bit more fashion-y thanks to DVF's signature prints. And if you weren't already planning on catching some waves this summer, the floral mini shorts will make you reconsider. (Or you can make them part of your poolside, mojito-sipping wardrobe.) We celebrated the collab launch with Vanessa Hudgens, who is a bikini expert after living in them for her role in the upcoming film Spring Breakers.

"I got sick of all of the bikinis I wore on set because I wore them every single day for two months straight. By the end, I kind of just wanted to burn them," Hudgens told us. "I love this new DVF collection because it's classic Diane Von Furstenberg prints on bikinis at an affordable price--it's perfect. My favorite bikini from the line is a multicolored strapless one that ties on the side." Though she fully endorses surf attire, Hudgens admits that she probably won't be hanging ten anytime soon. "I've come to the conclusion recently that surfing isn't my thing. I respect everyone who does it and I think it's a beautiful sport, but I don't like being splashed in the face with water.

That kind of nixes me from the competition." After we talked shop, we threw a few back while listening to Nancy from LCD Soundsystem on the ones and twos. Hudgens revealed that her favorite song by the now-retired band is "Drunk Girls," an appropriate choice considering her latest role. Spring Breakers premieres next Monday and DVF x Roxy premieres right now. Click through to buy our favorite looks from the collection modeled by Roxy surfer Monica Byrne-Wickey.
