2008 Primetime Emmy Awards: America Ferrera

It's always a pleasure to see America Ferrera; she seems so sunny and pretty and lovely. And tonight, she's channeling Rita Hayworth with that wavy hair and 1940s-style red lipstick.
The key to making a bold lip color work is to pair it with a toned-down eye as America has done. A little bit of shimmer near the inner corner of the eyes draws attention but doesn't distract. What do you think of this classic look?

She looks pretty but I've seen her in this hair and makeup a lot. She needs to change it up a little.

I do love her, but her hair could be just a bit more glossy and pulled in. And she can pull off a red lip very well.

I don't love it.

I agree ChrissyBaby - This is far too severe for America. She looks better when she looks fresh.

Dislike. The hair ruins this for me; it just falls flat, needs more volume.

Makeup okay. Hair no.

The wavy, 1940s-pinup style looks much better on shorter hair (about chin-length). But I do like her lips - it's difficult to do good red lips, and she wears it well.

I love her so much. I wasn't expecting this look on her at all, but I love her makeup. She looks so gorgeous. Her hair is frizzy, but I do like the style.

Lots of frizzy hair at the Emmy's tonight, but other than the hair, I think that America looks beautiful here. Love the colour of the lipstick on her.

She's so pretty, but her hair looks like it needs 5 more minutes of attention.
