America Ferrera's Slimming Style Weapons: Black, Python, And Peep Toes
June 21, 2010
We’ve always loved America Ferrera’s red carpet confidence, and since the Ugly Betty star got engaged recently, she’s glowing more than ever. The actress has a sexy curvy shape – and instead of wearing shapeless sacks – she shows us how to belt little black rompers into perfection.
We always avoided fuller skirts, thinking they weren’t flattering for gals with hips, but America showed us the opposite is true: pretty frocks like this Shoshanna pleated dress ($170, down from $350) are super flattering for narrow and curvy types alike.
Create a sexy waistline like America did with this Apt. 9 crinkled faux-patent-leather belt ($14.40, down from $24). We love this thick style – it’s great for the office or going out.
Snakeskin heels are a great way to amp up any all-black outfit; you will love these hot Classique Entier Iris heels, in a cool new silhouette ($129.95).
Who knew jumpsuits could be so chic and slimming? We love America in her Milly black jumpsuit, and this Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Corset jumpsuit ($295) is exactly like the corseted, cropped style she’s wearing.
Another great belt option is a bold snake skin one like America’s; this Skinny Snake belt ($29.99, down from $68) is perfect.
Heels are the easiest way to look 5 pounds thinner; peep toes are a sexy, America-approved style. Try these cool Report Signature Shoes Toluca Open Toe Mesh pumps ($126.00, down from $180.00), you will love the mesh detail and high heel.
