America Ferrera has long ditched her awkward little-girl braces and horn-rimmed glasses. She’s now glamming the world in her curvy form and empowering women everywhere.
The Superstore star stepped out for the Barbie premiere in London, where she was joined by co-stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. The actress looked stunning in a black crystalized Roland Mouret gown.

America Ferrera is a woman of many talents. The actress who starred on Ugly Betty and currently co-stars on NBC’s Superstore is also an executive producer. She’s also a singer and an activist.
She started acting at a young age, appearing in school plays and community theater in Los Angeles, California. She made her film debut in 2002 with Real Women Have Curves, followed by the 2005 movie Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
The actress, 39, attended the European premiere of Barbie in London last night, where she was joined by other members of the cast and Greta Gerwig herself. She looked stunning in a long pink gown, wearing her hair in large, glamorous waves.
At one point, a man ran onto the red carpet and dove under her dress, but Ferrera seemed unfazed by the incident. She smiled, took pictures and chatted with her fellow cast members. This may have been the last Barbie promo event before SAG-AFTRA votes on a strike.
She’s Wearing a Long Skirt
The actress wore the long skirt for a photo call in London. She paired it with a black blazer and silver strappy heels. The pattern mixing looks perfect because the polka-dot pom-pom sweater stands out from the checkered skirt. Also, she kept the accessories minimal, letting her patterns do all the talking.
The Ugly Betty star plays Gloria in the film, a real world woman who ends up in Barbie land. She’s been promoting the movie during the last week, and her costumes have been making subtle or blatant references to Mattel’s beloved doll franchise.
On Friday, she wore a cobalt Monique Lhuillier gown for a photo call. Her long dark hair was styled in glamorous waves. She paired it with a Rebecca Minkoff t-shirt that cheekily riffs on Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan and benefits Rock the Vote.
She’s Wearing a Black Blazer
When America Ferrera stepped out at the Golden Globes this year, she wore a black ensemble. She later explained that she was wearing the all-black look to show support for the #TIMESUP movement. The actress sported a sleeveless leather top and wide-leg pleated pants cinched at the waist. She finished the chic look off with a pair of glossy black pumps.
If you’re a fan of Ugly Betty, you’ll recognize the shoes from Betty Suarez’s closet. The character wore a pair of black leather shoes with stiletto heels.
America Ferrera is currently starring in the NBC sitcom Superstore. She’s also the executive producer of the show. On Saturday, she sported a sleek black look to attend the premiere of Barbie movie alongside Margot Robbie. The actress layered a black blazer over a crisp white tee. She paired the look with black patent leather pencil-leg pumps with a square metallic clutch. A pair of diamond earrings completed her elegant look.

America Ferrera is best known for her role as Carmen in Ugly Betty, but she’s also a producer and actress behind the camera. She recently partnered with Hearst Digital Media to create content that promotes her new nonprofit, Harness.
The organization aims to bring social conversations online and into the real world by convening people with frontline activists. It works with organizations like Black Lives Matter, GLSEN, and Carecen to help bring the voices of those in need to a larger audience.
It will do that by creating original content and working with existing content from brands like Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, and Oprah Winfrey. It’s a great way to reach the audiences that most need to hear those voices. Ferrera was the perfect person to launch it, as she’s a well-known advocate for diversity in Hollywood. She’s a force to be reckoned with when it comes to telling stories that need to be told.
