Think you’ve seen America Ferrera before? Don’t think Ugly Betty, think

America the Beautiful! True, America is the star of ABC’s comedy Ugly

Betty, but I think time and time again, America has proven herself

otherwise, especially when walking the red carpet.

Seen here at Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards, America

Ferrera looks fresh faced and confidant well beyond her years. While

many celebrities dress down at this event (Cameron Diaz wore torn

jeans), America wore a smart casual ruched dress from J Mendel with

peep toe black sandals. Her look is still elegant, but not prom

queen-ish, or Academy Awards formal…it’s just right. And pulling

together her look? Jewelry from H. Stern. America wears the brand’s

Neptune bracelet in noble gold and diamonds, stacked with their Stars

Deco bracelet, also in noble gold and diamonds. And her piece de

resistance? America chose to wear a one of a kind H. Stern white and

black diamond ring, from the Star collection. Beautiful star indeed!

While America Ferrara did not win the Kids Choice Award that evening, she certainly qualified for best dressed!

Do you think America Ferrera is ready to branch out from Ugly Betty, to beautiful leading lady?
