Ugly Betty

I really enjoyed the Ugly Betty series that was on Channel 4 a while ago and was really sad when the series finished but it will be back soon. Seeing the running of a fashion magazine was great and I know, it was a total copy of The Devil Wears Prada (unfashionable worker goes to a top fashion magazine yadda yadda yadda - how did they get away with it?) but you've just got to love Betty! Her clothes are weird in a cute way and that little 'B' pearl necklace she wears always makes me smile. And oh! her nephew Justin! He is hilarious! Anyway, I thought that Amanda's, the secretary, style was uber cool and so when I found this dress I just had to do a post about it. Its a Vera Wang corsage dress which you can snap up at £1,300 (no chance of 99.9% of us buying it then!) And how about these Pedro Garcia Ninette heels which are £155 to go with it?

IIRC, Ugly Betty came out earlier. It is the anglicized version of a Colombian novela that started out in 1999. I saw it a year later. The novela was a success in Latin America, and after several "inspired" novelas in Spanish the anglicized version was done.
The novel The Devil Wears Prada was published in 2003, and the movie came out on 2006.

Love those shoes! I have a thing for pointy shoes. I actually got a similar pair from ninewest for $40 - but they are not that cute!
