In February 2016, Hannah Montana actress Alison Brie got all dolled up for the premiere of her new film “How to be Single” held at the NYU Skirball Center in New York City. She was joined by her co-stars Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, and Leslie Mann.

The then 33-year-old American actress donned a strapless pleated shirt-inspired dress from the Monse Spring 2016 Collection that featured two vestigial sleeves hanging off the back.

10 years earlier, she made her television debut as Nina, a novice hairdresser, on the Disney Channel sitcom Hannah Montana.

Starring as a girl paid by Rico Suave (Moisés Arias) to pretend to like him, Alison Brie appears in “It’s My Party and I’ll Lie If I Want To,” the fifth episode of Season 1 of Hannah Montana.

Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in January 2021, the Happiest Season star recalled the audition for her first television role.

“What a face,” the Mad Men actress said looking at a picture of herself on the hit show. “You know, I was very excited. But the thing I remember most is that I decided to go in for my audition with, like, a very broad Long Island accent. Not requested!”

“Kooky hairdresser that it hired by the brother’s nemesis,” she responded when asked about her role. “I end up shaving his head,” she added.

The episode aired on April 21, 2006, when Alison Brie was 23-years-old. Born on December 29, 1982, in Hollywood, Los Angeles, she turned 24 on December 29, 2006.

10 years later, while we don’t think anything would redeem her monstrous dress, Alison did her best with a pair of black Jimmy Choo “Lucy” ankle-strap pumps.
