America Georgina Ferrera (born April 18, 1984) is an award winning Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award actress from her role as Betty Suarez on the ABC comedy/drama series Ugly Betty.

In 2006, she landed the lead role in Ugly Betty, an adaptation of the Colombian hit telenovela Betty La Fea, in which she portrays a girl that her peers find extremely unattractive, thus the series title. As Betty Suarez, Ferrera wears fake braces on her teeth, bushy eyebrows and a disheveled wig, and make-up and clothing intended to downplay her own good looks.

In real life America Ferrera is beautiful and stylish. My only comment is that she appears to ALWAYS wears black. In the last 6 months America has worn black to every event excluding The Screen Actors Guild Awards, The Golden Globes and The 24th Annual William S. Paley Television Festival.

America has a few films in the pipeline, so we can get so see more of America Ferrera. (hopefully in an ensemble that is not black).
