Britney Spears is making way for another sexy young thing: Vanessa Hudgens!

After two years as the face (and bod!) of the Candie's brand, the pop queen, 29, is handing over her crown to the High School Musical star, 22.

For her first-ever candy-colored shoot, Hudgens posed playfully at the Pink Hotel in Sun Valley, Calif.; in one shot, Hudgens shows a lot of leg in skimpy denim shorts as she lounges on an antique pink chair.

"So fun being a Candie's Girl! Look out for the @Candiesbrand pics of their new girl, Vanessa Hudgens!" Spears tweeted.

Replied Hudgens: "Thnx, @BritneySpears, you're a tough act to follow ...but, I'm so excited to be the new Candie's girl for 2011!! – xo"
