There's been much talk about America Ferrara as a good example of a curvy woman. After all, the star of Ugly Betty did make a movie called "Real Women Have Curves." The purple Brian Reyes gown that she wore for at the Golden Globes was cited as a fine example of a dress for a larger woman. But just how large is America Ferrara?

The dress is currently up for auction through Clothes Off Our Backs, a great charity that auctions off celebrity items for various causes. The size? America is a size six. Smaller than Meryl Streep, whose Carolina Herrera dress also up for auction, is a size eight. I love Ugly Betty and I think America Ferrara is a very charming actress but I bristle when I see her used as an example of a plus-sized or even fuller figured woman.
