Sofia Vergara: 'I Don't Believe In a Natural Look!'

Sofia Vergara turns 41 today, and to celebrate, she got a pretty great gift: a sexy, sassy cover story in Harper’s Bazaar — plus the season three kickoff episode of the mag’s web series, The Look (below).

The brunette bombshell is her candid, funny self in the issue, which hits stands August 16. She also poses for drop-dead gorgeous photos in Dolce & Gabbana (on the cover) and Ralph Lauren Collection (the dramatic photo at left).

But Vergara confesses that no matter how high-fashion she gets, she’s got it all in perspective. About her Hermès Birkin bag collection, she says “I tell [my son] Manolo, ‘If I don’t have enough money for your college this month, you have to sell the Birkins,’” and adds that she tells her business manager, “What would you prefer? Me popping champagne bottles and doing drugs and wasting money or buying bags? These are valuable. These, Manolo can sell!’”

She also admits that she never tires of playing up her sex-bomb image. “I’m Latin; I do it no matter what. It’s automatic,” she says. “I shower, do hair and makeup. For me, it’s like shaving. I don’t believe in a natural look. Lipstick brightens your face! Unless you’re Gisele Bündchen or 19, you need something.”

From the photos, it’s hard to believe Vergara needs any extra help, but that’s why she’s so lovable. For lots more photos and intimate details on the birthday girl, check out and pick up the August issue on stands July 16.

And don’t forget to watch her hilarious video (yes, she eats and still maintains that figure!) with editor Laura Brown, below. It’s worth it just for a glimpse of that massive rock on her ring finger — trust us.

What do you think of Vergara’s beauty mantra?

Kelly, She’s just being a true Latin woman, having a completely relaxed view about themselves and the world. Comfortable with their bodies and not concerned with petty things or what others think, humorous about themselves and others. Where’s the party? And would you please massage my shoulders and my feet type of attitude. Very different from how white women are. She’s a completely different race and she’s not mentally ill. Kelly you need to relax and get your head check and get a massage. You’re the one that sounds mentally unstable.

@Sonya, out of all the comments I’ve read on here yours happens to be far more offensive than someone saying she’s “mentally ill”. How sad that it takes one person (you in this case) to turn something into Latin vs white issue. Also sad that you view white women that way bc let me tell ya, you couldn’t be more off base. In my opinion it’s the women that opt for a more natural look that are far more comfortable in their own skin anyway bc they don’t feel the need to slap layers of makeup on. Regardless, it has nothing to do with race. There are plenty of women of all races comfortable in their own skin and who are not materialistic…

sorry, but as a straight woman i have to say that she is one fiiiiiiine looking woman. wow

There is nothing wrong with doing make up. I agree with Sofia, it makes most women look better. Not everyone can pull off a natural look. Well whatever Sofia is doing, it’s working for her!

Ava on

She supports her entire family even when she wasn’t making a lot a money. In an interview back then she said she’d rather support her family than buying stuff.

Cyndi on

@ Nix – I agree.
@ Kim – LOL!

MJ on

She is very down to earth! She loves what a lot women love – fashion, bags and keeping her appearance up. Only she has more money to invest in her bags on a larger scale. She said she’d be willing to sale her bags for her son’s education! What more can she say? She’s not spending her money on drugs or drinking!

Sydney Chandler on

Sofia Vergara doesn’t support her whole family as someone said. She supports her son. She comes from a very affluent Colombian family. I just don’t get this woman. I have no idea how she’s the highest paid woman on TV particularly when she’s not the star of Modern Family. It was the same with Eva Longoria, on DH. She didn’t carry that show it was an ensemble as with Modern Family. And it’s been proven with both ladies that they definitely can’t carry a film. ABC loves Latinos and no matter what, they promote the heck out of them. If Modern Family had Sofia Vergara as the sole star, without other central characters, how long do you think Modern Family would have been on the air? Not long.

Talullah Thomason on

She’s not mental just not the sharpest tool in the shed. If you know that you have a kid (son) who’s ready to go to college, Sofia you would have put aside money for his college tuition. Right! Instead you go out and buy a collection of Birkin (Hermes) bags (countless) until you blow your checking account. And now you’re thinking you may have to sell some so you can give your son money for his college. Duh, Sofia.
