Vanessa Strips Mall of Security

The mass of security that escorted BritBrit out of Target have nothing on the goons from a Westfield Fashion Square in suburban Sherman Oaks, Calif. The rent-a-cops walked a suddenly camera shy Vanessa Hudgens out of the Macy's yesterday with the type of protection usually reserved for Afghani diplomats visiting Pakistan.

Seven, count 'em, seven uniformed (and uninformed) guards shielded Hudgens from cameras as they walked her to her car, past her car, and then back to her car.

Meanwhile, back at the mall, it was probably a winter wonderland for holiday shoplifters.
