America Ferrera In Nicole Miller – ‘Chicago’ London Photocall

America Ferrera looked outstanding as she wore head-to-toe red for the ‘Chicago’ photocall in London yesterday.

The actress celebrated her London stage debut as Roxie Hart wearing a Nicole Miller long-sleeve red dress.

Her curve-defining jersey dress was teamed with matching Giuseppe Zanotti velvet peep-toe slingbacks.

For someone who used to live in head-to-toe black, I’m very excited to see American wearing such a vivid colour.

First Dita, now America is opting to go head-to-toe red.

How do you feel about this trend?

    It’s growing on me.
    I love brunettes in red, so the color is lovely on America. The dress and fit are horrendous though.

      To clairfiy, I dont hate the concept or silhouette of the dress and her figure looks amazing,.The fabric however, looks cheesy and that ruined it for me. If it was a better quality jersey, like a MK or DK, it would have been a whole lot better.

      +1. There is a way to highlight and accentuate your hourglass figure without resorting to dresses of the cheap and overly-clingy type … see the collections of Roland Mouret and Victoria Beckham.

      I think it’s really funny you both say this, since before even reading your comments I was trying to figure out the fabric! I assumed though that it was a really thick but really stretchy material, with very minor built-in ruching on the sides to create the gathering effect — and I think that’s all meant to flatter, and succeeds! Not every woman can pull off the RM/VB look of super-structured, super-classic/chic looks (which I adore, but ya gotta have the body for it), so I think this kind of dress is a wonderful alternative!

    I like the trend, and America looks great in this!
    Also, I had no idea she was going to be in Chicago (one of my fav musicals), good for her! She’s come a long way since Ugly Betty!

    I don’t like the trend but I like America’s look.

  7. Giuseppi Giraffe November 1, 2011 at 12:37 #

    She looks fabulous!

    am really not a fan of being this matchy-matchy and the dress isn’t anything exciting or special — it’s a basic red dress that clings, but america looks amazing.

    • Elle November 3, 2011 at 22:44 #

      I agree! Plus she has such a pleasant demeanor so it adds to it.

  9. Mingas November 1, 2011 at 12:42 #

    She looks….. oh-so-fabulous. I want her diet too *-* she looks just amazing. I wish I’d see more of her on TV…

  10. Lils November 1, 2011 at 13:02 #

    She’s gorgeous!

  11. robbie November 1, 2011 at 13:05 #

    drop dead gorgeous!

  12. argentina November 1, 2011 at 13:12 #

    Im loving this look on her! Good curves

  13. Mol November 1, 2011 at 13:17 #

    I love this shade of red on America – she looks gorgeous, love her hair too.

    • CreoleLady November 1, 2011 at 20:44 #

      ITA +1.

  14. Linda November 1, 2011 at 13:20 #

    She’s looking very shapely and sexy in that dress!

  15. fromchi-town November 1, 2011 at 13:24 #

    Wow – she looks mind blowing. I just love those curves.

  16. pam November 1, 2011 at 13:25 #

    wow. she looks awesome

  17. pam November 1, 2011 at 13:26 #

    and the fit is perfect!

  18. AW November 1, 2011 at 13:28 #

    She looks beautiful. I love that she’s a real woman with curves and not a lollipop head walking hanger.

    One nit picky thing, her hair needs help, it’s looking a little…flaccid

  19. Kiran November 1, 2011 at 13:56 #

    Wow, love her in this. The head to toe red works for me in this case as it’s only two pieces (and she kept the lip neutral). Dita’s look was just too much red and and odd outfit choice considering everyone else at Derby Day was is Black & White (as it’s racing tradition).

    After Leighton (as Blair in the Big Blue House ) and Dita looking red-iculous, I’m just waiting for someone to show up looking like Poison Ivy.

    Yowsa. Personally I’d prefer a metallic shoe, but still. Her hips are gorgeous!

  21. dave November 1, 2011 at 14:43 #

    Beautiful, Outstanding, Gorgeous, I miss her on my TV, she should be back on The Good Wife

  22. Rebecca Z November 1, 2011 at 20:16 #

    I agree that it looks good on her–partly the shade and tone, partly the minimalism, partly just her–she looks good in this color and she looks like a real human being. Dita is so stylized, and the red shade she chose was over the top. I think this trend just needs to be done tastefully when it is done, like everything else.

  23. Shaina November 1, 2011 at 21:02 #

    She looks hot! The color is really doing wonders for her and her body looks amazing.

  24. Jackie November 2, 2011 at 04:22 #

    I love the matchy matchy trend but it’s not really working for me here. The dress really shows off her fabulous figure though.

  25. roxana November 2, 2011 at 06:49 #

    very nice!

  26. Jen November 2, 2011 at 21:42 #

    va-va-voom!

  27. jkrau November 4, 2011 at 01:45 #

    She has never looked better!

  28. Chelsea November 11, 2011 at 02:59 #

    America is working this dress! It somehow looks ladylike and pretty though it seems like it would instead come across as super sexy because of how it hugs the body.
    No bother – it looks great!
