+ Glam Belleza Latina’s Winter Cover Star: The Cool, The Confident Sofía Vergara!
Modern Family introduced us to Sofía Vergara, but the whip-smart Colombian beauty has been steadily working on her craft for years. GBL gets the success secrets of TV’s highest-earning actress.
A force of nature—is there any other way to describe Sofía Vergara? Turn on the television, walk by a billboard, shop at a nearby retailer, and you’ll likely see Vergara’s larger-than-life and perfectly made-up face smiling back at you. The tabloids are obsessed with Vergara’s engagement to businessman Nick Loeb, while the style editors can’t get enough of her glamorous red-carpet appearances.
The Colombian beauty’s world domination started with her role on Modern Family, as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, a Latina character with a thick accent and bodacious body whom Vergara, 41, managed to make relatable, à la Lucille Ball, to American viewers. What a lot of people don’t know about Vergara, though, is that this popularity has been a long time coming. She has worked constantly since her teens, when she starred in a Pepsi commercial in Latin America that put her on the map for Spanish-speaking audiences. Stints as a cohost on two popular Univision shows in the U.S. soon followed. And long before Latinos were in the mainstream, she cofounded Latin World Entertainment, a talent management and entertainment marketing firm. Today she has a best-selling clothing line at Kmart, is a face of CoverGirl and Diet Pepsi, and just launched a furniture collection with Rooms To Go. And early next year she’ll be featured with her family in a campaign for Head & Shoulders. What does this all add up to? For the second year in a row, Forbes named her TV’s highest-paid actress.
Clearly, we had to check in with the vivacious Vergara, America’s beloved star.
