Ashley Tisdale kept High School Musical wardrobe

Ashley Tisdale was such a fan of her character's wardrobe in High School Musical, she took all the items home with her.

The actress, who portrayed Sharpay Evans in the hit TV and film franchise, kept the pieces for herself against the wishes of studio bosses at Disney, the company behind the production.

In a new interview with Buzzfeed, the 33 year old admits she thought all the items could double up as red carpet attire.

"A lot of our clothes (from the show) are in like, hall of fames (sic), and they didn't have Sharpay's stuff," the actress and singer explains. "Disney tried so hard to get the clothes from me and I was like, 'No, this is mine'. So, yeah, they don't have any of the clothes from the first movie. I do."

The star also looked back on her embarrassing fashion choices early in her career, but insists she's still proud of a lot of the things she wore.

"I remember wearing flip flops on the carpet and army fatigue pants," she said. "I was like, 'This is what I'm going to wear to a red carpet. I'm so cool'."

Tisdale, who has been busy promoting new items from her makeup collection with BH cosmetics, insists she felt really free with her style at the time: "I can say that, for me, some of those images are so funny," she recently told Paper. "Looking back sometimes, I'm just like, 'What was I thinking?' But at the same time, I realise that I was so confident.

"I think that that is such a beautiful thing in those images. As you obviously grow up in this business, and then you become more in the spotlight, people are obviously criticising you and you're changing things. I just look back, and I'm like, 'You know what, that is awesome'. I could not care and I just did my thing. And that's just amazing!"
