At last night's premiere of Shrek: The Musical on Broadway, Cameron Diaz and América Ferrera both ruled the red carpet...and they looked awfully coordinated! Both actresses donned white dresses with festive beading—perfect for the holidays—and braved the cold with stylish black coats draped just so. The only difference was in their makeup and accessories. Cameron used pops of red for dramatic effect, while América went with loose locks and black pointed-toe kitten heels.

The catfights at Mode magazine seem to have nothing on the real-life feud between Ugly Betty star América Ferrera, and guest star Lindsay Lohan. The New York Post reports that Lindsay's six-episode contract was cut down to four, at the insistence of América.
One production source said, "It was a mess. Lindsay would show up every day with an entourage of people. She smoked 24/7, and after she left, they had to repaint her dressing room it was such a mess."

Though most of us look at it as a guilty pleasure, América Ferrera believes there's nothing positive about teen soap dramas like Gossip Girl. "Like, if you're watching The Hills or 90210, all the backstabbing shapes the way we act," the star muses in the October issue of Seventeen. "I mean, I love Blake [Lively]; she's a wonderful friend of mine, but shows like Gossip Girl kind of condition us to be mean."

Adriana Lima will make Ugly Betty a whole lot prettier when she guest stars on the show in an upcoming episode. The Brazilian supermodel will play a—wait for it—Victoria's Secret model hired to pose for Mode's Sizzling Hot Issue and will share scenes with América Ferrera's character, Betty Suarez.
"Adriana has always been a huge fan of Ugly Betty and is thrilled for the opportunity to make a guest star appearance," says her rep Liza Anderson.

The stars came out in their red-carpet worthiest digs last night for the Imagen Foundation Awards, honoring the crème de la creme of Latinos in the entertainment industry.
Not surprisingly, we learned that everyone loves Ugly Betty, which snagged Best Primetime Series and Tony Plana as Best Supporting Actor and also took home a Lifetime Achievement Award. However, we’re massively confused as to how Christina Milian, who apparently starred in some show called Snowglobe, beat America Ferrera for Best TV Actress.
