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?
