Ugly Betty Is Not So Ugly!

In fact, she's quite fetching! With all the backlash against super skinny models and the new model regulations in Spain and Milan, I think a revolution is under way. An appreciation for a woman's natural curves is surfacing within fashion. What ever happened to the days of curvy screen sirens like Sophia Loren and Bridgette Bardot? I know times change, but these ladies were wonderfully womanly.

Life & Style did a recent story and glammed up curvy Ugly Betty star America Ferrera. We all can achieve her classic, Marilyn Monroe look with a shoulder-baring sweater, cinched belt and full skirt. I love this default look so much I put my own outfit together for Betty, er, America. Bombshells away!


To see my look,

Calvin Klein Jeans Pointelle Marilyn Sweater, on sale for $65.99 (originally $89).



Drama Taffeta Cocktail Skirt, $178.


Bing Bang Patent Leather Double Buckle Heart Stud Belt, $276.


Kate Spade Lidia, $298.95.


Betsey Johnson Silvertone Bracelet w/ Jet Stones Watch, $195.

America is gorgeous, they do a really good job of making her "ugly" for the show. I also like that she has curves.

lets just hope she doesn't decide she needs to slim down now that shes made it big. us curvy girls need someone to let them know its OKAY to have junk in the trunk and not be skelatal...a la nichole

She looks gorgeous. Period. You don't need to knock the skeleton patrol or compare. Her body is also average in the real world...actually she's a dress size smaller than the US average. She is the norm. Just a bit of a reality check. t0xxic is pregnant? Is it K Feds?

I just love that show. I wonder if Betty will ever get a makeover on the show, though? I kinda hope not.

I think she is gorgeous...I have always thought she was pretty, even back in those "Sisterhood" days.

That sounds like a great film! She really seems like the perfect rolemodel for younger girls today.

I first saw America Ferrara in a movie called "Real Women Have Curves" which is a GREAT movie- inspirational and good for a younger audience. From IMDB: Real Women Have Curves (2002) This is the story of Ana, a first generation Mexican-American teenager on the verge of becoming a woman. She lives in the predominately Latino community of East Los Angeles. Freshly graduated from high school, Ana receives a full scholarship to Columbia University. Her very traditional, old-world parents feel that now is the time for Ana to help provide for the family, not the time for college. Torn between her mainstream ambitions and her cultural heritage she agrees to work with her mother at her sister's downtown LA sewing factory. Over the summer she learns to admire the hardworking team of women who teach her solidarity and teamwork. Still at odds with what her mother expects of her, Ana realizes that leaving home to continue her education is essential to finding her place proudly in the world as an American and Chicana.

I loved her on Sisterhood of the travelling pants! Although she's the curviest of the four girls there, she's also the prettiest! She has a gorgeous face.
