Mandy Moore Is The Ultimate '90s Kid In This Epic Flashback Photo

Mandy Moore isn't afraid to bring up the past.

The "This Is Us" star gave fans a peek into her preteen years on Friday, sharing a flashback photo of herself looking like the ultimate '90s kid.

"Red carpet ready," she joked on Instagram, captioning the adorably awkward Christmastime snap in which she shows off a smile full of old-school braces and a red ribbon atop her ginger curls. The star-to-be also rocks a festive collared dress in the pic, while holding up a pint-sized Clue game.

Red carpet ready. For some inexplicable reason, my mom let me perm and temporarily color (!) my hair when I was 10. Permed bangs? MOM. Also, I only had those braces for 6 months (shoulda been longer cause my teeth are NOT straight) but I took full advantage of the colored rubber bands for the holidays. Ps: there was no way I was excited about that travel version of CLUE. Just saying...: ????#fbf

Mandy offered an explanation for her look, hinting that she may not be entirely to blame. 

"For some inexplicable reason, my mom let me perm and temporarily color (!) my hair when I was 10," she wrote. "Permed bangs? MOM." 

The Golden Globe nominee also pointed out her flair for color coordination, noting how she "took full advantage" of the red and green rubber bands on her braces to match the season.

While Mandy has clearly upped her style game in the last 20 years, board games may never have been her thing.

"There was no way I was excited about that travel version of CLUE. Just saying," she joked, adding a winking emoji to her post.
