Vanessa, who shot to fame thanks to her role as Gabriella in High School Musical, took to Instagram yesterday to share her sweet childhood snap.
And it seems the 25-year-old was quite the diva back in her younger years!
Donning her best Copacabana get up, the Hollywood starlet proved she sure knew how to play dress up from an early age.
Not wanting to miss any details, little Vanessa went all out with her Latina-inspired costume, donning a very tropical looking dress and piled high fruit hat.
Flashing a cheeky grin, Vanessa is instantly recognisable in the snap as the Disney star doesn't seem to have changed that much over the years.
Add a hint more glamour and now Vanessa is a global style and beauty icon. With a wardrobe most girls envy and the ability to rock just about any hair look possible, the fashionista, not surprisingly, is a regular topper in the style stakes.
Just recently, Vanessa chopped off her long locks for a cute new bob and we instantly loved her gorgeous new 'do. Not to mention her chic all white ensemble she rocked for her trip to the salon.
Since her High School Musical days, multi-talented Vanessa has gone on to star in a number of movie hits, including Spring Breakers alongside Selena Gomez and James Franco. She has also starred in the musical Rent and recorded two solo albums.
We bet her Copacobana-clad younger self wasn't expecting that back then!
