Since declaring her singledom after eight years with Austin Butler, the High School Musical alum has been all about tapping into her sultrier side. In fact, Hudgens has taken to regularly posting "Thirsty Thursday" pics, sometimes even more than one per day. See how she's been declaring 2020 the year of #ThirstyThursdays by perusing all of the pics she's posted in honor of the Instagram hashtag.
Vanessa's Secret Angel
The Bad Boys For Life star took to Instagram to show off the new ink that she got on the side of her body. The NSFW tat -- done by Bang Bang Tattoos artist Dragon -- is of a nude angel. "Divine feminine angel ?❤️ not me.... my tat. But you can call me that, if you want to ? #thirstythursday @drag_ink," she wrote alongside her first post, which includes a close-up of the art. This is one of many tattoos that she's recently shared on her social media page.
She's back at it! "Someone say #thirstythursday ?" Vanessa asked of this stylized selfie that showed off her turquoise eyeshadow, pink pout and a butterfly necklace on March 5.
Dial It In
Vanessa shared a booty-baring pic from Girls. Girls. Girls. Magazine shoot, which showed her lying across an old-school television set while wearing a sheer sequin-encrusted YSL bodysuit. "Turn it on baby #thirstythursday," she wrote on Feb. 27.
A second poolside snap from the same mag shoot was captioned, "Migraines, usually stem from being dehydrated. Get this girl a drankkk #thirstythursday."
Do the 'Do
"I think my hair was thirsty ??♀️??," the High School Musical alum joked of her mane's styled wet look on Feb. 20.
Bask in the Sun
"Thursday’s [sic]. Am I right ?," the brunette beauty declared of this gorgeous outdoor snap as she overlooked Los Angeles while rocking a high-waisted black two-piece on Feb. 20.
She's working on her fitness! "Look how sweaty she is.... she must be #THIRSTYthursday bahahahahahaha set @avia.official," Vanessa captioned this vid from an athleisure wear photo shoot on Feb. 20.
So Hot Right Now
A fever turned Feb. 13 into a #TiredThursday. "Been asleep all day with a temperature of 103 and realized it was Thursday. Soooo yea," she captioned a short Instagram vid.
Posing Like A Pro
Vanessa shared three sultry snaps from her 2011 Details shoot on Feb. 6, starting with this bedroom pic. "That details shoot tho. #thirstythursday ?," she admitted.
Rain on Me
Vanessa isn't afraid to go to major lengths to get the perfect photo! "It was obviously raining this day and I stood under the drip coming off the roof. Freezing. But made a great pic lol #thirstythursday," she recalled of the second snap.
Third Time's the Charm
The California girl finished up her trip down Details memory lane with this chair pose. "To conclude our #thirstythursday here’s the last pic I had from that shoot. I feel like it’s time for some wholesome stuff after today. High school musical throwbacks tomorrow? Lol ❤️❤️," she wrote.
On Jan. 30, Vanessa shaded three pool pics from a shoot with photographer Elia Stahan. "Oh... it’s Thursday... anyone knows what the means?????" she asked alongside the first black-and-white snap.
How Much Longer?
In the second photo, which showed off her black one-piece bathing suit, the actress admitted she didn't know how long she'd be able to keep going with "#thirstythursday" images -- but she seems to be doing OK! "Y’all lol I don’t really have many pics that qualify so not sure how long this will last but for now, we wet ?," she wrote.
Vanessa only needed the #ThirstyThursday hashtag for the last black-and-white image from the shoot.
The Bad Boys for Life star shared several sexy snaps of her new sunflower tattoo, including a mostly topless photo of herself covering her chest and showing off the new ink. "And to conclude our #thirstythursday Hahahahaha ? @drag_ink @bangbangnyc," she captioned one of the pics.
Vanessa really loves this shoot she did with Elia Stahan! "Might have already posted this one but whatever. Lol @eliastahan," she captioned a black-and-white snap on Jan. 23 that shows her hiking up the side of her bathing suit as she stares into a camera.
Ready for Her Close-Up
So why was she sharing so many pics from this same shoot? "Well just found a folder in my email from @eliastahan with all these pics. Thought I’d shareeeee," she explains.
"Throwback Thursday to the reminding music video with @shawnhook ? @eliastahan," Vanessa wrote of the first pic she shared from the same shoot.
