Mandy Moore's 2016 Emmys Dress Was So '00s & Reminded Us Of A Beloved Oscars Look

The '00s were a decade of dominance for singer and actor Mandy Moore. It's no wonder Mandy Moore channeled '00s fashion with her 2016 Emmys dress. The tangerine-colored Prabal Gurung gown was able to be everything to everyone. It was also inspired by multiple '00s trends. It was straight and see-through. It had tiers. It had ruffles. It had layers. It had a criss-cross, halter neck. I mean, what didn't this dress have?

The frock was certainly busy and some Twitter users compared it to Michelle Williams' canary yellow Vera Wang gown from the 2006 Oscars. There was actually a world of difference between these dresses. But remember, Williams did paint her pout with an unforgettable power red and Moore also slicked her pucker with a scarlet hue. So it's safe to say that Williams was the main source of inspo for Moore's 2016 Emmys look.

Moore wore her brown locks in soft waves and she also rocked some serious blush. Overall, her presentation was bold and strong. She wasn't going for soft and subtle. And that made her mega memorable.
