Mandy Moore

As a young ‘un, Moore had serious beauty goals, she joked. Just look at the pic: “Further evidence that even in 4th grade, I was ready for my @garnierusa campaign. ALSO, I had those stinking braces for a whopping 6 months and they did absolutely nothing for my teeth. I remember being mostly excited to do red and green rubber bands for the holidays.” (Photo: Mandy Moore via Instagram)
