Clothes were shown, pictures were taken, a merry time was had by all.

The High School Musical gang is out promoting their third flick. At the UK premiere, Vanessa Hudgens stole the spotlight in a fun polka-dot Simone dress, Catherine Malandrino motorcycle jacket, and Jimmy Choo double-strap pumps.
