Mandy Moore struck a pose in a cute black dress at the Beautiful Girls Ladies Fashion lunch in Melbourne today. Looks like she had fun on stage with Molly Meldrum, but the popstar is mainly in Australia to tour with Ben Lee and Kelly Clarkson. It's been a while since Mandy performed and she blogged on her MySpace page about being nervous but loving the fabulous country. She said,
Greetings from Dan Undah! Once again, I have to say this country
blows me away in EVERY way. We just got to Adelaide after spending
three full days in Perth. Amazing. We played two shows with Ben Lee
opening for him before he took the stage in front of a 65-piece
orchestra. Words can't explain how brilliant he is and how genius the

Kelly Clarkson down here and then off to Manila to play one show there

record, recording some demos and hopefully locking in a compelling and
challenging film project.
Hope you are all well and enjoying life. I'll post some pics this
week from down here. Hoping to see you all soon ...
We love Mandy for always gushing about all her different projects and collaborators. Plus even when she's got all the boys' eyes on her she manages to stay out of trouble.
