Pop princess Mandy Moore first hit the airwaves in the late 1990s with her teen-pop albums So Real, I Wanna Be with You and the self-titled Mandy Moore. Slightly younger and a bit less successful than the other big-name acts at the time—namely Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and Jessica Simpson— Mandy managed to hold her own and toured with the Backstreet Boys in 1999. So Real was certified platinum in early 2000 and her single “Candy” was certified gold. “I Wanna Be with You,” from the album of the same name, was featured on the soundtrack of Center Stage in 2000.
Mandy decided to give her acting chops a try, branching out into film with the 2002 movie adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel A Walk to Remember. She also had lead roles in the rom-coms How to Deal and Chasing Liberty, as well as in the religious satire Saved! In 2010 she led her pipes to Disney’s Tangled, tackling the role of Princess Rapunzel. The Motion Picture Academy has announced that Mandy will be singing the film’s theme song “I See the Light” along with co-star Zachary Levi at the 2011 Academy Awards. Randy Newman and Gwyneth Paltrow will also be performing at the gala.
From pop princess to Disney princess, one thing’s for sure—Mandy Moore is definitely sweeter than “Candy,” especially in these Emilio Pucci sunglasses ! The Italian designer is well-known for his geometric prints and kaleidoscope of colors, and Mandy’s shades are available in basic black, brown and ebony as well as fun and funky turquoise, rose and petal pink.
