Similar to “The Devil Wears Prada,” which was released in theaters the very same year that “Ugly Betty” debuted, the show featured a number of cameos from the fashion world, as well as no shortage of celebrity guest stars throughout its tenure.
Victoria Beckham, Naomi Campbell, Lucy Liu, Salma Hayek, and even Adele all made appearances on “Ugly Betty,” amongst others (via ScreenRant).
And of course, so too did the beloved Betty White. The actress appeared in the show’s second season back in 2007, playing none other than herself (via Entertainment Weekly). White lands in the hospital after she and the inimitable Mode Creative Director Wilhelmina Slater try to catch the same cab.
White’s appearance on the show was well-received, with critics writing at the time as it seemed like a natural collision of two beloved Bettys, “I’ve said it before, I’m sure I’ll say it again: I adore Betty White. She stands for all that is good and fun in our business, and we know she’s kind to animals. She can’t be on the small screen too much for my liking. Go Betty, and ‘Betty!'” (via Variety).
