Sofia Vergara in Michael Kors at the Emmys Performers Peer Group Reception

Posted on August 20, 2013

HUZZAH, Miss Sofia! We are standing at our desks and applauding, which is weird, we admit, but who asked you anyway!


Sofia Vergara at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ Performers Peer Group cocktail reception to celebrate the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards at Sheraton Universal in Universal City, California in Michael Kors.

And it isn’t even all that great. It’s just that we’ve gotten in the habit of cheering the famous on when they step outside their limited style comfort zones and we’ve long expressed our dislike for Sofia’s love of skin-tight everything. Our style mantra of the mo is that this look needs a belt, but we’ve been at this game long enough to know that stylist-fueled red carpet micro-trends (like the current hatred of belts) are terribly short-lived most of the time. It totally looks like an incomplete outfit to our eyes without it, but we don’t care, because she’s wearing two colors at once (which is sadly rare for her) and she can breath and sit and probably even run to catch a bus, if such things mattered to her. The jewelry’s a bit much but she’s the gal for big jewelry and besides, the outfit needed the pizazz. We’re gonna call this one a win all around, even with the stated problems. She looks fresh, sassy, and modern.

    Wow… she looks positively Mennonite (for her)!!!!

  • PastryGoddess

    See Sofia, you don’t have to show your tits off at every opportunity. Atta girl for stepping outside the box

  • That bracelet I’d simultaneously amazing and terrifying. Shelooks

  • Just Me

    She looks stylish, sexy, fresh and happy and (thankfully) NOT like she is selling her goodies to the highest, high-end bidder. Go girl!

  • Denis

    It’s amazing how this she looks when she’s actually wearing something that’s a bit looser than, say, a boa constrictor.

    • kimmeister

      I believe this is the first time I’ve ever seen her legs!

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        Heh. Jinx!

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      How pretty she is too, when she can move and breathe!

    • Little_Olive

      Yes! thin was my first thought. Actually, thin and young. So much better than in her ususal va-va-voomness.

      • Fanny_Trollope

        Much younger. The “sex goddess” thing is aging.

    • Domo_Konnichiwa

      This is the first time I think I’ve ever seen her legs. And they look killer.

  • Nikko Viquiera

    She’s not wearing a mermaid dress, we can’t see her cleavage and she looks beautiful as always…this is a WERQ!

  • Random Compliments

    Hate the hose.

    • Tatiana Luján

      And the Minnie Mouse shoes. But she looks great from the knees up.

      • Aidan B

        Yeah, from the knees down she looks like Zooey Deschanel!

  • Shawn EH

    Killer smile!

  • Frank_821

    She really looks like a completely different person

  • Anniebet

    That bracelet looks like a weapon. She’s cool and cute and toned down here – the proverbial breath of fresh air.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    Yes, points for movement in the right direction. I’m not sold on the jewelry with this look, but have to admit this is starting to look like a woman who could do something other than latina bombshell – not that she needs to – it’s been working out pretty well for her so far!

  • alyce1213

    She looks terrific in regular clothing. She’s one of the few people I let get away with stick hair. Boy can she work that big smile, or what?

    • MaryMitch

      She really is beautiful, and seems to be nice and a great sense of humor to boot. I really like this look for her for a change from the cha cha look.

  • hughman

    With that bracelet, if the skirt were shorter she’d make a kick ass Wonder Woman.

    • fursa_saida


  • Miss wks

    She looks really cute.

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    This is the youngest I think I have ever seen Sofia look .. good on you, girl.

  • Imasewsure

    Love her. She looks great as a regular woman too

  • CNM

    This would be perfect if she wasn’t wearing the ‘hose.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      ugh, the hose…ugh.

  • amber.

    it’s amazing how when things fit, the smaller you look, and when everything is skintight, how much larger you appear. i had no idea she was that small. i could go without the tights but she looks cute & different.

  • MilaXX

    She’s the very definition of the megawatt smile

  • MemHey

    Whose hand is that in the second photo?

    • kimmeister

      And did one of their Lee Press-On nails fall off?

  • decormaven

    I like the way her hair is styled for this look. I’m a fan of statement jewelry, but that is one honkin’ huge bracelet.

  • Diego!

    I love it, but where is the belt???

  • Rand Ortega

    Didn’t I see Leela wearing that bracelet on Futurama? Since the show’s cancelled maybe they’re auctioning props. ; )

  • Laurie Landry

    How fr*cking cute does she look in this?!

  • nannypoo

    Beautiful. She looks fresh and pretty. I love the bracelet. She does need a belt.

  • Shannon Campe

    I would do terrible things to get my hands on that bracelet.

    • GillianHolroyd

      I will fight you for it.

  • kirkyo

    I like how this outfit puts the focus on her best asset…her smile, of course.

  • skeksi

    With the clothes that fit well and the hair that’s not puffed and sprayed, she looks much younger, in a good way.

  • Joanne Abrams

    She looks great, nice to see her w/her boobs covered up. A refreshing look for Miss Sofia

  • AnneElliot

    She has one of the best smiles in Hollywood. I’m ignoring the shoes, otherwise she looks great.

  • PeaceBang

    i just want to look at her smile all day.

  • MacFrannie

    Does anyone else see Denise Richards? Especially the over the shoulder shot.

    • She really looks like Denise.

  • Tara Gray Burkholder

    Black hose are back in? Ugh. I’m sweaty just thinking about that.

  • Overall, she looks younger, smaller, and cuter sans the va va voom look, but she needs to ditch those hose (not send them to Zooey, just ditch them.)

  • akprincess72

    Sorry, I hate the middle part-extreme flat iron hair!

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    She looks so much thinner in this silhouette. It’s neither here nor there, but I rarely wish that my clothes would make me look larger.

  • Qitkat

    She’s clearly thrilled with this look, but she’s almost unrecognizable. Love the color of the skirt, but I do not care for the choppy hair.

  • WittyCism

    Gawd, the woman has stopped aging… and is now getting younger. Love how she’s not Charo here.

  • mhleta

    I just saw a preview for her new movie in which Charlie Sheen plays the president and she is a villain with machine gun boobs. I want machine gun boobs. The first thing I’ll shoot with them is that bracelet.

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    I agree. She looks fab.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    I agree it’s not the best outfit, but is still nice to see her wearing something other than a body hugging gown. Who knew she had such nice legs.

  • marlie

    Nothing Earth-shattering, but the jewelry does elevate an otherwise boring look. Though I love that purple, and I love the fuller skirt on her.

  • Danielle

    It’s not a mermaid dress! *Applauds*

  • formerlyAnon

    And, and, and! . . . hosiery!

  • I love everything but the dark nylons. She looks fab; it’s great to see her a bit different.

  • Bernadette

    Black hose/tights in late August? That’s my only gripe.

  • MissFern

    Jesus, she is TINY.

  • valerie saenz

    “When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on.” Coco Chanel
    Too much jewelry.

  • JaCory Deon

    She looks great for her, nary a trace of the drag queen here! Very nice.

  • LauraAgain

    Her smile, those *teeth*! and her brows … sigh … in this dress she’s the complete package! Love it.

  • librarygrrl64

    She looks ten years younger.
