style spotlight: Mandy Moore

As anyone who reads this blog regularly knows, I am mostly of the firm view that celebrities as a whole are bad dressers. That most of them can't pick out a pair of jeans without a qualified stylist there gently pulling them in the right direction, and some stars do nothing to disprove this theory of mine:

Let's just all have a big collective shudder of horror

But every once in a while, a star comes along who rarely seems to slip up, who never has a pre-midlife crisis and decides it a good idea to wear cowboy boots everywhere, who dresses actually... well. And that's why Mandy Moore is one of the few celebrities who's style I actually admire.









I think that the trap that most celebs fall into is trying to be out-there fashionable, in that edgy, crazy way that I love so much. But the problem is that most of them just fail miserably when they try to be the most stylish girl ever. So really, the reason why I like Mandy Moore is that she gives off the air of not trying too hard; because since when is trying too hard fashionable? It's not.

Mandy looks gorgeous in these pics, her red carpet dressses are fabulous.

I agree about the celebs. Alot of the time they have either no taste or we are just exagerating what they are wearing just because they are a celebrity.

Mandy Moore is stylish but a bit plain i think she needs to spice it up a little bit

georgie said...

oo as much as mandy keeps coming across in interviews as whiny and i really cannot accept her bashing of zach braff b/c he's a genius, she is super stylish, and you're right- it's because she knows what works on her and it looks effortless

ive ALWAYS loved mandy (even since her candy days) - she is talented, a gorgeous singer, and i want all her clothes - AND she doesnt give into the pressures of being stick thin! i respect her becuase she respects her job and is a "good" girl - great post!
her new movie dedication looks awesome!
