    We appreciate that "Ugly Betty" star Becki Newton was likely going for a high fashion look when she attended a panel with The New York Times wearing this ruffled-front shirt, but she seems to have ended up looking more like a bird puffing up in an elaborate mating ritual.

    She's a very petite girl, and the explosion of white ruffles on her chest is just overpowering, especially considering that it fades to skin-baring mesh at the back -- couldn't they have spread that material out a bit? The rest of the ensemble, thankfully, has been kept slick and minimal (other than the slightly perplexing white graphic on the skirt), and her hair looks quite chic. If someone were to, say, flatten a significant portion of that ruffled bib, the whole look could likely be salvaged.
