Mandy Moore was at the Sunset Tower Hotel in LA on Wednesday evening wearing a Lela Rose braided metallic organza dress with the celebrities favourite – Christian Louboutin ‘Bis Un Bout’ pumps – to celebrate the launch of Rachel Zoe’s ‘Major Must Haves’ range from Jockey.
We had the opportunity to talk to the actress who shared her favourite red-carpet moments, how fashion plays a part in her marriage, what is inspiring her right now and her ever-changing hair colour.
On her red-carpet style vs. everyday style: It’s all sort of flying by the seat of my pants, to be completely honest, but I step it up a little bit more when I go to an event. My general style is pretty low-key. I’m more of the jeans, T-shirt and sneakers or flats kind of girl.
On her favourite red-carpet moment: I had the opportunity a year ago to go to the Oscars. That was pretty fun! I got to perform on the show, too. So, for me, that sets the bar.
On which of her Monique Lhuillier dresses she loved most at the Oscars: If I had to choose, I prefer the dress that I wore on the red carpet.
On how fashion plays a part in her marriage: I definitely have way more closet space than my husband. Absolutely! Other than that, no. He’s not as much into fashion. He has his look down: the metal T-shirt and the same two or three pairs of jeans in rotation. He doesn’t need as much space or pay attention to that stuff. I think he tends to think that a lot of what I love – being that I’m such a girl (shoes, clothes and makeup) – is silly, but he lets me do my thing.
On what’s inspiring her right now: Hopefully the cooler weather that we’re supposed to experience in LA some time soon. I want nothing more than to put on a pair of boots and a cosy sweater, like everybody else. I guess we’ll have to wait a little bit longer. I find this time of year to be way more inspiring and enjoyable than summer or spring. It’s a time to reinvent yourself.
On her ever-changing hair colour/style: I actually cut six inches off my hair today and did an ombre-ish color. I get bored!
