So this is what Betty Suarez has been hiding behind those red-rimmed glasses, thick fringe and that mouthful of metal.
The fashionistas who bully her could be silenced by just one glare from these sultry bedroom eyes.
Unfortunately for the loveable secretary from TV’s Ugly Betty, this will never happen.
Because this is actually her alter ego, actress America Ferrera.
Miss Ferrera was photographed for the latest British edition of Marie Claire magazine.
She even graces the front cover - following in the footsteps of some of the world’s most glamorous women such as Angelina Jolie and Denise Van Outen.
Miss Ferrera, 23, has found fame with the popular U.S. series, which is now in its second season here in the UK.
She plays the good-hearted but dowdy Latina who lands a job as secretary at the fictional Mode.
Betty soon proves herself to be very efficient and is determined to succeed in the fashion world - but is a little hampered by her looks and dress sense.
Miss Ferrera has won Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards for her work in Ugly Betty.
