Rare is the young star who doesn’t fumble on the red carpet, but Ugly Betty‘s America Ferrera has been spot-on since she hit the red carpet last year. The actress has mastered flattering her petite and curvy figure, while looking young but always sophisticated. So, America, we salute you and your fashion sense! We’d like to think we have a few good ideas for you out of this week’s N.Y.C. fashion shows — here are our picks for the best actress in a comedy nominee to wear to Sunday’s Emmy awards. Tell us: What do you think America should wear to the Emmys?

Embellished and Elegant: America does well in simple shapes with great details. What about this beaded Catherine Malandrino? Or this gold-flecked Oscar de la Renta? Or this embellished halter from Monique Lhuillier?

Bright and Beautiful:America’s coloring is great with strong color. Why not this green chiffon Carolina Herrrera? Or go bold with this cobalt Zac Posen? Or get noticed in this tangerine Temperley?

The Blue Zac Posen – the color & cut will be perfect, Some of the others are too flimsy on top for her figure. This would be gorgeous with her coloring and very figure flattering. Love her!

She should definitley go with the Oscar de la Renta or the Temperley. I think the cuts are perfect for her figure. The other dresses would not flatter her as well. The Zac Posen has a nice shape but I think it would be too frilly for her. And I don’t know what People was thinking when they picked out that Carolina Herrrera dress. Have you ever tried to wear a high neckline like that with a full chest? Can you say uni-boob?

America Ferrara would look great in the cobalt Zac Posen. It’s sophisicated and looks great on girls with a curvy figure. I think it is beautifuland so is she!

That Zac Posen is my favorite. I saw it on the runway and wished I had a red carpet event to go to so I could wear it! BUT, none of these you guys picked out would do her figure justice. I think she must have a great stylist because she always has dresses that hug her all the right ways. Those chiffon numbers wouldn’t do that. She needs something more structured and a heavier fabric. Either way she’ll look great!

Who are you kidding???The woman is fat and dumpy and doesn’t look good in anything she wears….enough all ready. She stars in “Ugly Betty” for a reason.

The girl has got some curves alright, you go girl!!

Definetly Zac Posen’s. Malandrino’s dress would not go well with her shape and De La Renta’s Gold waisted dress, wouldn’t adjust well with her mid torso. Tangarine may be a bit to light and bright while the Herrera is a bit playful.

lily is just jealous. I think she’s beautiful. I think the Zac Posen dress would look best.

Colette on

The Zac Posen is perfect for her. That Carolina Herrera would put her on the what was she thinking list for years! And what was People thinking suggesting it?

Linda on

Everyone’s right,definetly the Zac Posen, it’s a beautiful, elegant yet sexy gown. The Catherine Maladrino would look better on a waif like Ellen Pompeo.
