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?

Her voice grates on me but, she’s gorgeous.

If I looked like that, I’d also be preoccupied with my looks!!! Give her a break, people…not everyone who’s pretty has to also be Mother Theresa!

Everything about me is phony. I am not a natural blonde, I have had boob implants and Colombia is dirty and violent…. ay, ay, ay!!

Ladies and Gents -

Get real!!! She IS an actress and is not your friend….let your feet touch the ground and get back to reality!

S on

All actresses hide their true age, including Sofia V. She is not really 41… closer to 45 or 46. And she appears quite conceited.

I think she’s a hoot..I read this as being a funny article. Talullah, no where in the article did it say that she could not afford to send her son to college..Really think being able to read and then understand what you read is a great thing..

m on

this segment is hilarious.

Wow, that black dress looks amazing on her. Really beautiful. Love her attitude about getting glammed up daily-the natural look is great up until about age 18, after that, hair and makeup enhance a woman’s beauty.

Actors are human some are nice and others not. Stop judging. You don’t know her personally. And all actors and actresses are fake meaning fake hair Botox skin treatments etc…. And why BECAUSE they are in the spot light they have a certain look to upkeep. You don’t have to be a genius to see that. Show me one celebrity who’s totally real … you can’t

She’s beautiful she’s smart and she loves and will anything for her son. And how do I know this because I am Latina my whole world is my son. I would do anything for him. If you are not Latin you won’t understand the culture. Latinos love hard and fight hard. It’s in our blood. Family is everything to us therefore she did everything she had too for her son. You could see how close they are in pictures. Google it and see how she talks about how Manolo is her world. I get her and understand her perfectly
