America Ferrera Is Stuck In Braces

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – America Ferrera is a real life Hollywood beauty, but on-screen, she may always be stuck in braces.

That’s the word from Ferrera, who says fans can expect to see her portraying the same frumpy, braces-clad Betty Suarez on the upcoming season of Ugly Betty, without any major changes to her style.

Ferrera says, “Betty is pretty set wardrobe wise and comfortable with the image she portrays. But I think her style will evolve as her character evolves.”

Still, Ferrera is pretty sure Betty will sport her signature braces for many more episodes to come.

She explains, “Her braces are staying because they’re a part of who she is. I don’t know how long someone could technically wear braces, but we might have to stretch the truth!”

And while Ferrera’s on-screen wardrobe is anything but stylish, some designer duds sneak into her dressing room once in a while.

Says Ferrera: “Every now and then Betty had some $2,000 blouse on and I’m like, ‘What is this?’ It’s just goes to show you it’s not necessarily what you’re wearing, but how you’re wearing it. You can still be frumpy in an expensive shirt!”

The new season of Ugly Betty premieres Thursday (Sept. 27).
