I had one goal -- to get on one of those ''What Were They Thinking?'' lists. I wanted a prom dress and I found these star earrings. I carried a Chanel purse, which definitely classes it up I think.

Oh my God, I was so uncomfortable. I hated how my hair was parted. This is when you first get on the scene and they're like we have to go to red carpets for premieres that you're not even involved in at all. I put on this dress that I think I got from the wardrobe at G4. The shoes are probably what I was wearing that day on set. You always have to have your hand on the hip because it makes one arm look not look so big. But I felt so uncomfortable in that.

If you can see in my smile, if you can see the look in my eyes, they're going 'Make it stop. Is the day over?' Bad idea. Why did I? This was the first time I ever dressed up for Comic-Con.

This is me trying. This is when I'm like, 'Okay, I'm now invited to bigger premieres.' I wanted to feel effortless and easy. I just remember walking out of that movie.

This was my first time going to the Emmys for The Daily Show and they were nominated. I was so excited. I was wearing Zac Posen and he sent it and he was so nice. And it's a sample. So small. It hurt to put on. That's why you can't see boob at all because, like literally, they just flattened everything. And then I really got insecure like, does it look like I'm trying too hard? So I just put my hair in a ponytail and wore minimal makeup.

Somebody overcurled my hair. I'm glad it was for the Spike Awards where it's more fun and whatever. But, you know, other girls have worn this...in orange. It was okay. I didn't like it.

(Pictured with Greg Kinnear, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Christina Hendricks) That was a Carolina Herrera dress. That was the first time any designer had ever been like, we know who you are and we want to dress you and I was so excited. It had big bubbles around it. I really liked my hair down into my face more. It's very fashion-y. But I'm glad I wore it because it felt good and it was easy.

That's a Diane von Furstenberg. Why did I go to this? I was in New York. I did my own hair and makeup for this. And the dresses, I went there and I tried on every dress but none of them worked. And it's the one that worked. I bought those shoes myself. I like this outfit because I liked my hair and makeup and it seemed easy. And I remember that people didn't hate it. So that stays with me.

That was Carolina Herrera, right off the runway. That was one where people would tell me to put on Spanx, but they don't really do much. They just put on one more layer. But I loved it. It was so hot that day. My hair kept falling. But it was a big difference from the Emmys from before.

Now you want me to cry? My best friend, God love her, sometimes I take her advice. And this is the day that I stopped taking her advice. I mean it's so sad because, you know, in real life it didn't look like that. So, you can tell in my face I felt comfortable. I literally took my best friend's advice and she's like, 'That's so cute!' And I should have known.

That felt so good...in my house. I thought, look at me! I'm wearing a coat and a button up and I'm wearing these shoes. My bun was way over the top. That's all my own hair. It was for the opening of Tommy Hilfiger's flagship store. My hair looks like I'm in Star Trek. I mean there's a lot going on. I felt really comfortable in it and I loved it...until I saw the pictures.

This was my favorite ever. I went to the Time 100 with [Michael Kors]. I loved [the dress] with my hair. He was honored for being on the Time 100 list and he asked me to go as his date.
