Getting styled up to check out on of this summer's blockbusters, Vanessa Hudgens attended the "Captain America: The First Avenger" Los Angeles Premiere on Tuesday evening (July 19).

The "Sucker Punch" sweetheart hit the El Capitan Theatre red carpet clad in an adorable short 'n sexy frock while flaunting her just-shortened coif and a big smile at the Tinseltown fete.

Recently talking about her new hairdo - which she cut for her role in "Gimme Shelter" - Vanessa dished, "It's unrecognizable. Even when I'm like kind of done-up, I look in the mirror and I'm like, 'I don't know who that is.'"

She continued, "It was shocking, but at the same time so exciting. Now it gives me the opportunity to be able to step out of what people see me as and allows to them to get out of their heads and be able to just experience the film."

Asked to rate the drastic new look, the 22-year-old answered, "On a scale of 1 to 10, I'm going to say, like, an 8, only because there was no smoking or drinking or drugs that my character did. And there's no sex...that you see."
