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 wouldn't worry about getting "in the middle of their relationship". If he makes a pass at someone else (you?) then that's HIS problem, not yours... and he probably wasn't worth your friends' time in the first place. Sorry, but you can't fix other people's stupid. And if it's you who's chasing, remember: friends are more important than some stupid/angsty short-term fling. Trust me-- I lost a few friends that way, and those relationships doesn't last very long afterwards. #TeenageWisdom

I rather you tell them the truth.....It's better to get help during times like this.. But if you wanna go down THAT road. (which includes lying, deep guilt, and possibly more scars...just a warning.) Here's how. 1. Hide them, wear bracelets long sleeves, whatever. just do it. 2. LIE. say you cut your self from glass of a REALLY bad paper cut...anything. 3. STOP!. Don't cut, easiest thing to do. At least let the scars fade... Like I said, I don't really want to help you with this stuff. TALK to someone. I cannot stress this enough. Good Luck....
