"Modern Family" bombshell Sofia Vergara stopped by Kmart's Astor Place store yesterday to introduce her new fashion line for the brand.
"I wanted to create a collection that the normal woman could afford and look sexy and cute without blowing all their funds," the Colombian beauty told us.
Sofia also chatted about her personal style. "I like to wear a lot of sexy clothes, but I also like to be comfortable," she said. "I like to be fashionable and chic, so I try to mix it up. I like a little color, but I like a little black too."
So, how does her own style compare with that of Gloria, her character on "Modern Family"? "In many ways it's the same," she said. "Many pieces from the collection are inspired by Gloria. She's a woman who likes to wear color, likes to wear sexy clothes, but she’s still cooking and driving her son to school."
We also wanted to know whether the ABC sitcom's Emmys sweep last weekend has gone to her co-stars' heads. But Vergara hasn't witnessed any divalike behavior. "We won last year too, so we’re trained," she notes. "It's a pleasure to go to work with the encouragement that people are watching and people are loving our work."
And finally, we asked Vergara to reveal her beauty secrets. "Everything in moderation--you shouldn't diet too much or exercise too much, or drink alcohol too much," she advised. "You can do everything, but not go crazy."
