Mandy Moore Looks Back on "A Walk to Remember" (VIDEO)

Released in 2002, it is based on the 1999 romance novel by Nicholas Sparks. Co-starring Shane West, the movie features West as a troubled teen who's hijinks have pushed him to the brink of expulsion from high school. In her first starring role, Mandy Moore plays the daughter of the town preacher whose introverted nature initially repels West, but eventually gains on him as the pair form a life-changing relationship.

As Mandy Moore explains in the video, filming "A Walk to Remember" was a life-changing experience for a teenager just breaking into Hollywood.

Mandy Moore Stuns in Monique Lhuillier!


Dubbed a "surprising show-stopper" by the Los Angeles Times, Mandy Moore's "eye-catching" gown left critics speechless on the red carpet at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.

Indeed, as the superlatives flowed, so did Mandy's second dress, in a floral-inspired Oscar-night revelation designed for Mandy's primetime performance alongside Tangled co-star, Zachary Levi.

In true form for the fashion-forward Disney princess, Mandy's fashion was in a word, idylic. Known for often playing coy when it comes to favoring designers, the red carpet was just another stylish example of Mandy's latest taste for one of L.A.'s hottest designers, Monique Lhuillier.

Hitting the red carpet in January, Mandy rocked Lhuillier's sensational style in a plum-colored floorlength, strapless dress at the 2011 Critics Choice Awards. Paired with a pair of chandelier earrings and a low-swept updo, Mandy made a statement described by one critic as "classic red carpet style."

Attending the 2011 Golden Globes just days later, Mandy dazzled critics in a Lhuillier-designed, mermaid-inspired blue gown. Paired with her classic brunette waves and a natural glow, Mandy chose classic Chopard jewelry to complete the one-of-a-kind look.

Looking beautiful, as always, Mandy!

Mandy Moore Dazzles at Oscars 2011!


Bedazzling fans on Hollywood's biggest and brightest stage, Mandy Moore rocked the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, Sunday night.

Oscar himself had to be impressed by Mandy's red carpet stunner by noted designer Monique Lhuillier. Effortless yet exquisite, Mandy's pale jewel-encrusted gown caught even the most vocal commentators off-guard with a fitted-aesthetic that one critic described as "hand-dipped."

A featured performer on Awards night, Mandy followed one show-stopper with yet another as she donned a Lhuillier-designed, floral-inspired blue strapless gown for a rendition of "I See the Light" with her "Tangled" co-star, Zachary Levi

An immense honor for the 26 year old starlet, Mandy's performance also celebrated a well-deserved Oscar nomination for Disney's landmark 50th animated feature film, "Tangled," released November 2010.

Mandy Moore Sings McCartney's "Let Me Roll It"

Since the 2007 release of her fifth studio album, entitled "Wild Hope," Mandy Moore has made little secret of her many musical influences. Inspired by icons of both the folk and rock genres, Mandy's musical heritage is paved by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Cat Stevens and Paul McCartney.

Given her incredible voice, we were tremendously excited to discover Mandy's recent performance of Paul McCartney and Wing's 1974 hit, "Let Me Roll It." Filmed in front of a live audience, that included your MM Bloggers, it was an unexpected treat for us and the sell-out crowd at New York's Highline Ballroom.  

Incidentally, this is not the first time that Mandy has paid homage to popular music. Back in 2003, Mandy Moore released "Coverage," a studio album dedicated exclusively to popular covers. Paying tribute to a dozen of her favorite musicians, the album featured hits like "I Feel the Earth Move," "Moonshadow," and "Help Me."
