Let's pretend it's 1999 for a second. Mandy Moore just hit the music scene, with a catchy track so saccharine it's literally called "Candy." Her hair is bordering platinum; her lip gloss, poppin'. On the roster of pink tracksuit-wearing stars, she sits comfortably next to Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan.
But as the years passed, Moore evolved. She got a pixie cut, dyed it dark, ditched the spray tan, made the jump to film, went on tour, took a break, and then came back to star in the award-winning show, This Is Us. These days, she's shooting season two of the hit series, and may (or may not) be newly engaged to musician Taylor Goldsmith — all before the ink on her spanking-new contract with Garnier had time to dry.
