There’s no new Ugly Betty until next year (ay, dios mio!).

That doesn’t mean the hard-working assistant won’t have a work party or two to attend over the holidays.

Wondering what Betty would whip together for her office shindig, I once again called on stylist Wendy “The Image Lady” Brown to give us her rendition of the perfect party ensemble for our favorite New York girl-on-the-go!

“Betty’s curves are a defining feature of her body type and she manages to combine completely eclectic pieces for looks that somehow work –  despite all odds,” Wendy laughs.

Wendy's picks? A vintage dress (Betty is trying to be frugal!), paired with a Robert Rodriguez batwing leather jacket, YSL tribute Mary Janes in bronze and a Laura Kranitz bird headband.

“A puffy dress is forgiving to the pear-shaped body,” Wendy says, adding that Betty can keep warm in a Manoush  camel rabbit fur coat with toggle buttons. “It’s best combined with opaque tights to complete the unexpectedly cuddly holiday outfit,” Wendy exclaims. “The tactile sense of the coat adds character to her nerdy-chic look.”


'Cause no one works nerdy like Betty does!
