Mandy Moore Is Basically a Red Carpet Superhero

With great sleeves comes great responsibility.

Mandy Moore is already basically a Hollywood superhero, having successfully transitioned from saccharine teen pop stardom to one of the cheesiest Nicholas Sparks movies of our time to an actual Golden Globe nomination.

Her red carpet look at Sunday night’s Globes completed the transition. Her Naeem Khan fall 2016 dress, with its plunging neckline (sternums: so hot rn) and sheer cape-like sleeves, was a glamorous statement that might have come as a surprise — especially to those of us who grew up listening to Moore croon “Missing you like candyyyyy” and stare mournfully into Shane West’s eyes.

She may not have won the Best Actress statue at the Globes on Sunday, but this look, complete with the superhero cape, is an award-worthy one for a star who once wore this.
