Spending the day at a red carpet celebration, Vanessa Hudgens looked darling as she arrived at the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday afternoon (February 26).

The "High School Musical" hottie took to the Santa Monica beachfront venue in preparation of the annual cinema showcase - as she headed directly to the LG Cinema 3D HDTV lounge to hang out with fellow actress Malin Akerman.

Miss Hudgens made the appearance as she's throwing herself back in the spotlight as she readies for next month's release of her new movie "Beastly".

As for the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards, the show will air at 10:00 ET on IFC with Joel McHale handling the hosting duties.
