On Monday, Mandy Moore — she of "This is Us," "A Walk to Remember," "The Princess Diaries," all those Garnier commercials and a few really intense episodes of "Grey's Anatomy" fame — received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was a momentous and celebratory occasion, with her beloved co-stars past (Shane West!) and present (literally everyone from "This is Us"!) in attendance. Striking exactly the right balance between "yes, there's a red carpet here" and "no, this isn't actually an awards show," Moore and her stylist Cristina Ehrlich chose a breezy mid-length taupe dress by Emilia Wickstead

A piece from the designer's Spring 2019 collection, the crepe gown featured twisted detailing at the shoulders and soft pleating at the skirt — and for a simple beige dress, Moore sure managed to make it look dreamy and ethereal. (It helped that the event was outside, allowing the billowy skirt to move naturally in the breeze. It also helped she is Mandy Moore.)

To make the otherwise minimalist and classic look a little more fun, Moore paired the neutral dress with satin Christian Louboutin pumps in an unexpected burgundy shade. It's just like the old saying goes: When in doubt, go with a colorful shoe. 

On the beauty front, Moore kept things appropriately simple, with a berry lip color and glow-y skin that, again, seems to come naturally by virtue of simply being Mandy Moore.
