You might call America Ferrera’s face shape a diamond, but to me it looks like an oval. Despite her oval face shape, she doesn’t wear a center part as well as Megan Fox does because her features are larger and noticeably blunt and bold.

She still looks ok here, though. Notice how her ears are covered and she’s wearing long narrow earrings:

But this is not a good look:

At one awards ceremony, she was probably inspired by how glamorous Catherine Zeta-Jones looked with this style…

…but it came out looking like this.

Here’s how I feel about this look:

  • The narrow middle part makes her nose look wider by comparison.
  • Those flat expanses of hair on either side look crunchy from gel.
  • I want to set her ears free from the bunches of hair they can barely contain behind them.
  • Finally, the earrings and exposed ears just add width where it’s not needed.

Now here’s how America looks with a side part and equal volume everywhere. SO much better!

Isn’t she just stunning?

Bonus: Round faces with delicate features

For the record, I think Catherine Zeta-Jones looks better when her ears are partially covered by her curls:

Or when her hair is soft, straight, and voluminous:

And with her round face and delicate features, Catherine also manages to pull off the look that evaded Megan Fox earlier (perhaps only with the help of her small sparkly earrings):
