Get the Look :: America Ferrera

While most celebs her age are partying without panties and turning into carbon copies of each other, America Ferrera is busy breaking down stereotypes about the Latino community. Find out how to get the look of this vibrant and talented actress!


America Ferrera adds a pop of color to her outfit with colorful accessories or a bold jacket.
Get America Ferrera's Look

America's Sweetheart

From her acting debut in Real Women Have Curves to her 2005 summer blockbuster, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, America Ferrera works hard to be a positive influence for young Latinas everywhere. She currently stars as the smart and spunky Betty Suarez on the ABC hit show, Ugly Betty, which has won two Golden Globes so far. Betty is fashion-challenged, suffers from a bad hair day every day and is overdue for a pluck, but she shows us it's what's on the inside that really counts. Now that's what we call a real role model!

The Curve Appeal

Take away Betty's bushy brows and so-bad-it's-good outfits and you're left with a real Miss America who shows us what the average American girl looks like. America Ferrera knows what flatters her curvy figure and keeps it casual in fitted jeans and simple tops, and wears elegant gowns that show off her curves on the red carpet. She usually sticks with darker colors, but adds a pop of color with bright accessories or a bold jacket like the sunny yellow one she's wearing here!

Bettify Yourself

Ugly is officially the new pretty, so why not dress like Ugly Betty? Just head on over to the ABC TV Store to buy the handmade "B" necklace that Betty always wears, her skull and crossbones flats by BC Footwear, or even her Guadalajara poncho! And for $24.95 US, you can get your hands on the adorable "Be Ugly" T-shirt, complete with a really cute cartoon drawing of Betty! The net proceeds of the T-shirt benefit Girls Inc., an online community that inspires girls to be smart, strong and bold.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

So, my brother is kind of a jerk. I won't go into details about him, but now my mom has officially given up on him. She no longer gives him rules or punishes him as long as he isn't interfering with anyone else in my family. Now, it's entirely on my dad's shoulders to make sure he even goes to bed at all. I don't know how I could help, but I'm worried about what will become of my brother when he gets older. He's mean to me, but I really care about him, and I don't want him on the streets. Is there even anything I could do?

I think they are just like that because I'm smart. So I made 4 friends.  I'll give their fake names; Camila, Socccer Gal,Bubbly Princess, Harry Potter Fan123, and Shy Flower. So, today I got an A+, and Harry Potter Fan123 got an A++ since she did extra bonuses that I had no idea about. Whatever, I'm over that.  HERE IS THE REAL PROBLEM! So I have a guy in my class that I hate like hell, and my friends Camila, Soccer Gal, and Bubbly Princess told him that I  like him, and I was like EWWWWWWWWWW!!! Well then I blew out and made a racist comment that I am so sad about and my friends were like crazy! I have no idea what to do. Then, my friends started bullying me, and I was like so shocked, I told them to shut up. WHAT DO I DO!?!?!?!?!?!   what you're going through right now is actually a part of life, and I think a lot of people have been in similar situations, including myself. everyone is actually bound to come across fake friends in their life, and sometimes it gets quite difficult to manage. if you've said something particularly offensive, I would probably say sorry. I mean, at least you have your original best friends? If they're caring and supportive, they'll try and help you as much as they possibly can. But if you feel like you're not being cared about by these girls in your class, and if you feel inferior to them, I would try to drift away, they're nothing but bad energy for you. I hope I've helped in some way. Good luck! Yes, it's very lonely in my class without any close friends. I am going to say sorry, and thanks a lot! You've helped me a bunch!

You can apologize about the racist comment. If you show you really are sad about it, they'll know you mean it.I hope everything goes well and gets better ^-^ Thank you! They were bullying me about how I was so stupid and how no one liked me. I shall apologize, thank you again!
