Sofia Vergara, who celebrated 41st birthday this week, graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s August cover and kicks off season three of “The Look,” talking curves, favorite designers, and eating the world’s most expensive ice cream sundae with host and executive editor Laura Brown.
Is it ever a bit exhausting, being a bombshell 24 hours a day? She shakes her head. “No. I’m Latin; I do it no matter what. It’s automatic. 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.”
On her Hermès Birkin bag collection: “I tell [my son] Manolo, ‘If I don’t have enough money for your college this month, you have to sell the Birkins.’” 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!’”
On her role in Modern Family: “I don’t think there’s ever going to be a better part for me,” she says. “But I do think—and my son and boyfriend agree with me—that I could play a crazy psychopath. I’m not joking.”
On her boyfriend, Nick Loeb: “He’s really handsome. He’s six foot four, and he has blue eyes and a lot of black hair.” Vergara pauses. “Or it used to be black. Now it’s got a lot of white in it. Nick says all the white hair came from me.”
While their marriage plans are under wraps for now, the pair divide their time between a Manhattan apartment and one on the Wilshire Corridor in Los Angeles, which they use when Vergara is filming. “I’m very independent, so it’s been a process for me, learning to live with somebody,” she admits.
