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.

I'd also shift the blame onto the parents. It's disgusting and appalling to know that parents don't care about their own child's wellbeing.

Her parents didn't tell her do anything with anyone , She did. Her parents isn't involved in this case!!  She's 13. Kids that age base some of their decisions off of what their parents say. Her parents should have told her what's right and what's wrong, which they most likely didn't do since apparently they didn't care.
