Sofia Vergara opens up in the new Harper’s Bazaar: “I don’t believe in a natural look, unless you’re Gisele Bundchen”

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.


The stunning Christy Turlington lands the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar

Christy Turlington graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s June/July cover, on newsstands May 28, and in the interview, she opens up about her modeling career, family, philanthropy, and more.

“I can kick! I can stretch! I’m . . . 50!” “I’ve been doing that since I was 27. I can’t wait to be 50.”

In fact, Turlington is 44—and 30 years into a career as what many have called the “ultimate supermodel,” she still very much has her powers. But because she models infrequently these days, a Turlington cover has a sense of occasion. “Now I feel like it’s a treat again,” says the mother of two (Grace, nine, and Finn, seven, with filmmaker husband Edward Burns), “because I do it so seldom. I can appreciate it in a new way.”

Starting to model in her teens saved Turlington from feeling self-conscious. “I was going through the age where most people hate themselves, and I was getting attention in my most awkward years. It wasn’t all roses, but I knew enough to take everything with a grain of salt.”

Of the Bazaar shoot, she says, “Dan [Jackson] said to me, ‘When you smile you look like you’re 16.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah—and then there’s my neck.'”

To date she has resisted anything more cosmetic than makeup. “I don’t know, I feel like it’s getting freakier. Maybe there will be a time when you’re an oddball because you’re the only one left. I’d rather be the only one, the sole survivor. And in that case?” She smiles. “I’ll just wear turtlenecks all year-round.”

“That’s a girl’s life for the rest of her days— somewhere between a lollipop and shots.”

She is seriously flawless. Gorgeous!!


The beautiful Selena Gomez lands the April cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

Selena Gomez graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s April cover, and in the interview, she opens up about love, dating, style, and her career.

Selena has been stepping out without Bieber, who she dated for two years before their current state of on-or-off-ness. The attention on the starry pair was doubly magnified. “It was, but that’s not a factor for me because unfortunately you can’t control that,” she says. “To me, love is normal. Of course, you see Jay and Beyoncé and you’re like, ‘Oh, my gosh, they’re perfect for each other,’ but at the end of the day their love is just like everybody else’s love.”

Gomez is sanguine about the single life, adding that she doesn’t get “asked out a lot,” “and when I actually look presentable, I’m at an awards show. It’s not like I’ve wanted to go out and look for someone. I’m not really good at that.”

But that doesn’t mean Gomez is a cynic when it comes to love. “I believe in love—yes, I’m one of those girls,” she says. “Most of my friends believe in love. I went out with Katy Perry last night. She’s so fun and awesome, but it’s cool to see someone older believe in love too. She is all about it, and that’s how I will always be. I believe in stories like, ‘Oh, I met him in Starbucks.’”

On her day to day style: “I do not give a damn what I look like, I don’t,” she says. “I wish I could pay attention because Gwen Stefani, say, looks flawless.” Gomez is also a fan of Rachel Bilson (“the one person I totally love casually”), Gwyneth Paltrow, and Charlize Theron.” She laughs. “Of course, when I’m on red carpets, I’m nervous, sweaty, and weird.”

I’m so glad she’s no longer with Bieber. I think she’s beautiful – and she has a huge career ahead of her!

Drew Barrymore graces the March cover of Harper’s Bazaar!

Drew Barrymore graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s March cover, which marks the biggest March issue ever in the magazine’s 146 year history, and inside, she talks about her daughter, Olive, her career, her makeup line, and more.

When she first found out she was pregnant, Barrymore put her film roles on hold and searched for ways to work that didn’t involve being in a trailer, “living someone else’s life through a character. I didn’t feel I could do a lot with fashion because I wear sweatpants that I find on the floor,” she adds. “I live for makeup and I like wine. These are my truths!”

On keeping the details of her daughter’s birth under wraps: “I definitely needed some time,” she recalls. “For a solid six weeks, I was hiding like the Unabomber. Because I live my life in the public eye, I didn’t want that for her. But ultimately she realized that “unless I move into a bunker underground, I don’t have a choice in this matter. It was something that took me weeks to cope with.”

“I know she didn’t sign up for that,” she says about Olive’s being born into the glare of attention that comes with her mother’s 30-plus years of fame. “I had such an exposed childhood,” she says. “I appreciate my journey, but I don’t want that for my kid. Not any of it. It has nothing to do with whether I liked my childhood. I really did. But as a parent, that isn’t the childhood that I’d provide.”

For her successful LashBlast Mascara commercials, Barrymore’s mission was, as it is now, to help women feel good about themselves. “I grew up in a makeup chair,” she says. “And to see the women around me getting ready was so aspirational. It’s about mothers and daughters, a girl watching her mom at a vanity table. I didn’t want a cold campaign with severe messaging. I wanted warmth and acceptance and self-love.”

She wants to apply that same fresh, approachable aesthetic to her makeup line, Flower. “Nobody’s in gold rain or running through a jungle with their lipstick on,” she says. “It was just me and some great music on a white background. That’s every girl, in her closet getting ready.”
