Even Mandy Moore has had her fair share of fashion fails!

During an interview with the Today show, the This Is Us star took a trip down memory lane. The 33-year-old actress looked at old pics of herself on the red carpet from when she was first rising to fame as the "Candy"-singing, bubbly pop star we all grew to love in the late '90s. From bright pink tops to leather pants, Moore got candid about her style hits and misses.

"This was my very first red carpet. I remember I didn't get to go to homecoming or prom, so I treated the Billboard Awards in 1999 as my homecoming or prom," she explained. "And this was back when ballgown skirts and -- remember the twin-set cashmere sweater was popular for a hot minute? I remember seeing Gwyneth Paltrow in something similar. And that's the inspiration behind this look, although she wasn't wearing what looks like a tablecloth and a Swarovski crystal-bejeweled turtleneck."

"And [there's] my crazy blond hair," Moore, who's been brunette for years now, added. "I remember I had pink Prada sandals on underneath and I was so excited because they were the fanciest shoes I'd ever had in my life. This was a real low point for me, I'm going to be honest. This was not a highlight of my style career."

"Getting a little sexier, showing a little bit of midriff, I mean, it was the early 2000s," Moore described this spunky look. "This was for some event for MTV, I believe. But that screams 2001 to me. Pink, I really loved pink, obviously. And lip gloss."

"OK, this was the Kids' Choice Awards in 2000," Moore said. "I remember these fringed leather pants were custom-made. And they were modeled off of some Ralph Lauren pants, I think, something that was seen on the runway and I was like, 'I think we can do a better version. It can be metallic purple.' But I was 16 or 17, so you can't really blame me for that, I guess."

"You're going old school," she said, laughing. "This was New Year's Eve [1999]. I was helping the New Year's festivities for MTV. I would totally rock that now, actually. Good job, Mandy. I feel like I was sort of ahead of the curve there, stylistically. Or it all comes back around again, who knows?"

"This is a whopper," Moore said of this two-piece combo. "This is a feathered top, you guys. And a jean skirt. Remember when it was in Vogue to cut off the waistband of your jeans and denim skirts? This sort of asymmetrical line -- that's something. And I believe you can't even really see, but there is a feathered detail on my platform sandals that's sort of tied in with the feathered halter top that I'm wearing."

"This was not a highlight for me either," she joked. "Thank you so much for making me feel fantastic about my style choices as a teenager, guys."
