Sofia Vergara in Zuhair Murad at the Machete Kills in LA Premiere

Posted on October 03, 2013

Credit where it’s due: it’s not a mermaid dress.

Sofia Vergara attends the “Machete Kills” Los Angeles Premiere in a Zuhair Murad gown paired with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and David Webb jewelry.

It’s hard for us to compliment the sheer-over-mini, and those shoes are certainly looking strippertastic, but everything from about mid-thigh to the top of her head looks great. It’s 2/3 of a WERQ. At the very least, she should be applauded for doing something ever-so-slightly different from her norm.

    It’s amazing how much thinner she looks when her cleavage is not on display.

    • H2olovngrl

      It’s amazing how much thinner she looks when it appears she only has one leg.

      • LilyPad

        My name is Amber, I got hepatitis B, a mad case of bedbugs, and I’m rocking one leg.” First thing I thought of when I saw these pics

  • PastryGoddess

    So she either gets an ERQ or a WER.

    Is it just me or is that last picture just weird? Her head looks huge, her arms look tiny and her body looks like it’s been shrunk. Photoshop is the devil

    • Donna Tabor

      Most actors seem to have bigger than normal heads. It looks better on camera.

      • alyce1213

        They do, it’s an amazing phenomenon.

      • Call me Bee

        It’s because they are so thin. Lollipop heads on sticks. When I see local newspoeple around town, I am always struck by how tiny they are–this with big heads.

      • Denis

        Yup. It’s true. It’s not just their tiny bodies causing an optical illusion, they really have giant heads. Especially TV actors. I’ll never forgot the first time I saw Debra Messing in person and though, “Jeebus her head is HUUUUGE.”

      • Nolan Chung

        Paul. Wesley.
        In the words of Chandler Bing, “big head. big head. big head.”

      • Heather

        Yup. Giadia de Laurentis (sp?) is a good example of the lollipop head phenomenon.

        • Donna Tabor

          Lea Michele, too.

      • okinawa_g

        I saw Chris Pine in JFK, super biiiiig head!

        • random_poster

          That comment took me somewhere I’m sure you didn’t mean for me to go.

          • okinawa_g

            hahahahahahahah yeah, We all wish we could go there with Chris :p

  • hughman

    If nothing else, her legs will be free from mosquito bites.

  • I want to bury my face in her hair. Is that creepy?

    • PlethoraofBooks

      Really? Her hair irks me. It’s constantly in mermaid style and I twitch almost every time I see it.

      • I’m Southern, I like big hair.

        • Funkykatt

          I think her dark hair looked better

          • kmk05

            I was going to post that that ombre effect looks really aging on her. Definitely prefer with with a darker mane. it is lush and Pantene-worthy, though! Looks soft and amazing/

          • sekushinonyanko

            I remember her saying blonde is her natural hair color and she dyed it dark to look more like the standard idea of what a latina looks like. Based on pictures of her I’ve seen of her as a teen, I think this is either her natural color or extremely close to it.

          • kmk05

            Huh. Never would have thought! I actually think if the colour were a bit warmer it would suit her more.

        • Heather

          As a fellow Southerner I can appreciate largesse of hair, but this is a bit TOO much for me. The extensions and ombre coloring just scream ‘trying to hard to look 19’ to me. Girl, embrace your womanhood!

    • Diego!

      So do I!!! <3

    • hughman

      From you, doll? Not in the least.

    • alyce1213

      No. She has gorgeous, healthy hair. I covet.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      “Shiny” is way too weak of an adjective: it’s emitting its own light.

    • demidaemon

      Maybe a little. Can’t really blame you, though. Her hair always makes me want to touch it like a creepy stalker, too. It always looks so healthy.

  • fringebenefit

    Love it. Usually hate that long/short affectation in a dress, but it’s all working here–and she is definitely werking it.

  • Diego!

    I LOVE her hair!!!! Maybe because I’m losing mine 🙁

    She looks stunning! Slutty shoes, yes, but she clearly deserves the WERQ label!

    You WERQ that see through dress Sofia! Vamos!

  • alyce1213

    No boobies! It’s good to change it up from time to time.

    • Shawn EH

      She didn’t want to compete with what her boobs do in the film.

  • MilaXX

    It’s as good as it get for the sheer skirt over mini look.


    Her smile is exactly the same in each shot. She looks a little like a cartoon character, no?

    • Carla_Charlton

      The more you look at her, the more cartoony she looks. I know she’s actually a beautiful woman, but I can’t help thinking that her va-va-voom styling and makeup causes her to have that cartoon look. I’ll bet that something a little more natural would show how gorgeous she is.

  • decormaven

    Change is good! While no fan of sheer over mini, she is doing the look justice. That is one amazing mane of hair.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    She’s so pretty……

  • Jacquelyn

    Someone someday is going to have to sit me down and explain how women walk in those shoes.

    I really love her hair. A lot.

  • Speaking of Machete Kills, I just found out Danny Trejo is only 5’6″ tall. I would NEVER have guessed that, I though he was 6’7 or something. He must stand on a lot of boxes. Anyway, this is a minor departure, but the same hair, teeth and boobs effect we’ve come to know from her. Nothing *wrong* with it but…

  • DesertDweller79

    Sigh, I just really hate the sheer over mini trend. The sheer anything trend, really.

    Still, I love the bodice. She definitely looks great from mid-thigh up, as TLo say. Hope to see more like this from her in the future.

    • Introspective

      god help me, if i never see a sheer maxi over a mini again id be such a happy kitten. or at least a little less bitter…

      • Celandine1

        I will take a sheer maxi over a minI any day over a sheer maxi over freaken granny panties!

  • Trickytrisha

    Wow, this is downright prim for her. Schoolmarm at the year-end banquet on the top, poolside slinky on the bottom. Those shoes aren’t quite sleazy enough for Ho-Town Gentleman’s club, but close.

  • Call me Bee

    Yay–no cleavage and no booty! I love it. She looks much younger and thinner when not on display. She deserves encouragement for this, even with the sheer-over-mini. Baby steps.

  • nannypoo

    I hate this. I wish she would just relax. She looked so beautiful the other day in that trench coat.

  • Credit for branching out, but I’m so over the cocker spaniel hair, even before it got blonder.

  • bertkeeter

    It doesn’t work on Project Runway and it certainly doesn’t work here! Makeup jsu a tad to “gurlie” for her?

  • RedRaven617

    I think with the lighter hair she looks like Denise Richards.

  • save_the_hobbit

    Are you gonna do more of the Machete Kills red carpet? Alexa Vega and her fiance Carlos Pena Jr looked fine as hell.

  • i am so bored with black. i could never live in new york.

    • mlle

      I want to claim the stereotype is untrue, but of course half my closet is black dresses.

  • colleenjanel

    Is it just me, or is she looking alarmingly thin? Particularly in the last picture. When I think of her, I picture someone who is very curvaceous and voluptuous. She is neither of these things here. I hope it’s an illusion of the dress and the camera.

  • I almost like that dress, and it’s the first time I’ve given any kind of grudging, backhanded compliment to a “long sheer over mini/tap pants/body stocking”, EVER. Not a bad look for her.

  • Joey Melliza

    at least she’s not a mermaid…again

  • Fannie Wolston

    The hair bugs, like silky long puppy ears in front. is she bald in back or what?

    • Heather

      Dontcha know, celebrities are actually cardboard cutouts?

      • Fannie Wolston

        yes! just like paper dolls, this one is near overplayed and worn out

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    I normally hate the sheer over mini myself, but this one is less objectionable for some reason. And she really does look great in it.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    I disagree, that IS a mermaid dress, just a sheer one. She’s the leader of the Benjamin Button club, seriously she looks 22 here. Aka jealous.

  • webslice33

    she looks great!

  • ThesisMonkey

    scrolldown disappointment

  • Beverly Kozma

    I love the picture of the model. It almost looks as if she has no legs.

  • CeeQ

    As you’ve said it before of La Nina – WHAT IS IT with Latinas and their hair?!? Gorgeous.

  • MannahattaMamma

    she’s a parody of herself. i suppose it’s deliberate?

  • JaCory Deon

    She looks “good” but I really want to straighten that hair out, take off half of that makeup, and just tone her down. I know she’s playing “The Latina” but it’s just too much.
