The Ugly Betty Makeover

Did Ugly Betty Really Need a Makeover?

Ever since news of Betty's "prettier" look next season broke, I have to admit that I've been a little bummed. It's not that I don't understand that characters evolve, it's just that Betty has always been so heroic because she's a person of substance, one who doesn't depend on her looks to make her life full. Ugly Betty is an import, a rewrite of a hit telenovela from Colombia, Betty La Fea. And in the original series, Betty suddenly lost her braces, got great hair, turned out to be gorgeous, and promptly married the Daniel character. It was a complete betrayal of everything that had been good about the show, and totally reconfirmed that the only way to be loved is by achieving the fashion world's most unrealistic beauty ideals. Never mind that Betty had proven herself a million times over — she was hot now, so she could be happy. I'm just hoping that our version doesn't fall into the same trap. I love Betty for who she is, and I think a great, cute guy should, too.
