What can be said about Sharpay Evans? Four-time president of East High School’s Drama Club, resident Albuquerque fashionista, Broadway star in the making… the girl has big hair and even bigger dreams. As we got to know the whirlwind of fabulosity that is Sharpay Evans, we realized there’s a lot that can be learned from this diva-in-the-making. If your life needs a little fabulous (it’s really a simple request) here’s how to apply Sharpay’s expertise into your daily routine.
Lesson One: Make an Entrance
Whether it’s an interview or the first day of school, you’ve always been told to make a good first impression. Sharpay knows this fact all too well and uses it to her advantage. When Sharpay walks into the room, you know she’s arrived. Nothing says fabulous like a perfectly executed power walk.
Lesson Two: Confidence is Key
We’ve all had moments of doubt in our life, but Sharpay knows that uncertainty is the enemy of fabulous. Sure, she indulges in the occasional freak out, but she always pulls it together. Sometimes you have to put your game face on and show the world who is fabulous (especially when executing an extravagant tropical song and dance).
Lesson Three: Personal Branding is Everything
What are some ways you describe Sharpay Evans? Pink, sparkles, her monogram, more pink… we think you get the idea. These signature staples are the foundation of Sharpay’s fabulous personal brand. Her trademarks might seem excessive to the average eye (really, who owns a pink convertible AND a pink baby grand piano?) but they all help to establish Sharpay’s over-the-top lifestyle. While you don’t need to make all your possessions pink, you can find ways to leave your own mark of fabulous.
Lesson Four: Think Bigger
Part of being fabulous is never resting on your laurels. Who wants to be mediocre when you can be fabulous? That’s why Sharpay always challenges herself and others, like her brother Ryan, to think bigger. Why win the part in the musical when you could become superstars? Why JUST have sold out shows, when you could be the one the Oscar goes to? As Sharpay so eloquently put it, “bigger is better, and better is bigger, a little bit is never enough.”
Lesson Five: Always Believe in Your Dreams
Sharpay is a girl who knows what she wants and goes after it. Her dedication to her dream never waivers despite what people may say. Whether she’s after the lead in the spring musical, Troy Bolton, or Broadway stardom, Sharpay steadfastly believes she can accomplish anything she sets her mind too. Even if she doesn’t, (*cough Troy loves Gabriella cough*) she never gives up and that tenacity can only be admired. And besides, who needs a man when you can be the star of your own broadway show, right?
