BECKI NEWTON LOVES A BARGAIN We all adore her for her highly chic, scene-stealing role on Ugly Betty, but what's truly winning about Becki Newton is how thrilled she is to score a great bargain. At the cover shoot, the 31-year-old actress giddily dove right in to the racks. “I get excited around summer clothes–it’s the one season when you can put together a whole outfit without spending tons of money.” Newton also shared her charmingly low-key style mantra: “It’s about being at ease in what you wear, whether it's an amazing gown or purple hot pants.” Check out page 68 to see the pieces she loves and to take a peek into her on-set dressing room.
