Why it Works: Sofia Vergara
Sofia Vergara (Bauer Griffin)
With her Colombian lilt and Barbarella physique, Modern Family bombshell Sofia Vergara has already proven she can hawk just about anything from Kmart threads to Covergirl cosmetics to a dubiously marketed half-size portion of Pepsi (Skinny Pepsi? Really?). Recently she sold us on her Jessica Rabbit-goes-Lois Lane get-up, a put-together daytime look she wore to visit Live with Kelly.
The Coat: The Platonic ideal of a Mackintosh, Vergara’s trench says, "Yes, I may have curves for days and the confidence to wear lycra round-the-clock, but that doesn’t mean I can’t go classic French with the best of ’em. J’adore."
The Dress: A “Kate Middleton by Mario Testino” shade of blue, Vergara’s dress has a striking, immaculately fitted simplicity that leaves room for the Latina beauty’s natural glamour to shine through. The nude heels add yet another modern royal touch.
The Bag: A welcome hit of sass in an otherwise prim ensemble, Vergara’s hot pink tote echoes her perceived personality: fashiony, over the top and salsa-ready.
The Hair: A brunette version of Gwyneth’s cascading mane, Vergara’s hair could go head-to-head (no pun intended) with Bachelor winner Courtney Robertson’s in the dark and wavy/glossy stakes. In fact, excuse us while we speed dial Bravo with that pitch for a new reality show.
