Zac Efron's ex-girlfriend Vanessa Valladares is spotted working at a local Byron Bay clothing store


She was jet-setting around Australia and living the high life when she was dating Hollywood star Zac Efron earlier this year.

But former waitress Vanessa Valladares is well and truly back to reality.

The brunette beauty was spotted working at a local Byron Bay retailer Del Rainbow Store, located in the industrial shopping precinct, on Sunday.

The part-time model appeared thrilled to be working in the clothing store, smiling as she greeted customers and put clothes back on the racks.

The 26-year-old showed off her incredible figure in a strapless bodysuit from one of the labels stocked at the shop, teamed with black trousers and trainers.

After work, she looked equally chic when she changed into a white mini dress that showcased her endless pins.

Vanessa beamed as she goodbye to her co-worker and even waved at photographers as she skipped home following her hard day at work.  

The sighting comes after Vanessa hinted she may have found love once again after her split from heartthrob Zac in April.

She posted a photo to Instagram of a shirtless hunk painting in what appeared to be her living room.

The pretty brunette has always remained tight-lipped about her private life, and gave nothing further away in the cryptic image.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Vanessa for further comment.

It comes five months after the model’s split from Baywatch hunk Zac.

According to various reports, Zac, 33, was introduced to Vanessa by her boss at Byron Bay’s General Store café in June last year, and the pair hit it off straight away.

Two months later, in August, Daily Mail Australia revealed Zac had cancelled his scheduled return flight to Los Angeles because he ‘didn’t really want to go back’.

Within weeks, the genetically blessed couple had moved in together in Byron Bay.

Zac confirmed their relationship in September when they were spotted holding hands in public.

But it was confirmed in April they had called it quits, with Zac’s friend Kyle Sandilands announcing on his KIIS FM radio show: ‘I can confirm [the break-up], after speaking with him yesterday.’

He also stated Zac had been dating Vanessa for much longer than reported.

There was speculation at the time Zac and Vanessa had known each other three years before their ‘official’ first meeting at Byron Bay’s General Store café last June.

Kyle, 50, who is good pals with Zac, revealed on live radio it wasn’t just a rumour.

‘They’ve been together for a lot longer than people realise,’ he said.

‘I don’t know where they met, but it wasn’t recent. It’s been going for a little while, but I don’t know exactly how long.’
