You asked, you get! On request, we've raided the high street (and the department stores) for the perfect ways to emulate the look worn by Amanda (Becki Newton) in Ugly Betty. The epitome of the 'sexy secretary', Amanda looks best in tailored shirts, waistcoats, pencil skirts, figure-hugging dresses and perilously high shoes. She's a girl after my own heart!


Black Halo 'Jackie O' dress (as worn by Amanda) $328 at Saks
Belted sateen shorts $29 at Hot Kiss
Cap sleeved 'Amanda' blouse $59 at Bebe
White waistcoat $69 at Guess
High waisted skirt with braces £45 at Oasis
Black belt with big gold buckle £15 at Miss Selfridge
Black belted shirt dress $54.50 at Windsor
Platform patent Mary Jane pumps $99.95 at Steve Madden

We tried to bring you a mix of 'as seen on' items and cheap alternatives. For the ultimate Amanda-esque wardrobe, click here for a huge list of her costumes.
