‘America’s Got Talent’ Judge Sofia Vergara Posted A Throwback To Modeling Days
Sofia wore a pink metallic bathing suit with frosted lipstick which was a huge trend in the 90s. The video featured glimpses of the star posing seductively showing that she was always such a natural beauty. The Colombian bombshell never initially had plans to pursue a career in modeling. Instead, she wanted to be a dentist. When she was 17, she was approached by a photographer during a family outing. She initially turned down his offer because of her Catholic faith, but she later recieved permission from the strict sisters at her Catholic school to pursue modeling. Soon after she shot a commercial for Pepsi which became a huge success. However, she still continued her studies and returned to a normal life.
Though she took small modeling jobs here and there, life changed for Sofia when she turned 18 and got married to her high school sweetheart, José González. It was not uncommon for people in Colombia to get married and have children young. A year later they had a son, Manolo. But the pair split in 1993 causing young Sofia to raise her son alone. She decided to pick up and move to Bogota to find better-paying modeling jobs to support her and her son. Sofia later moved to America and was chosen to play the scene-stealing role of Gloria in the hit sitcom Modern Family after a few television and movie roles got her noticed by ABC. She was on the show for all 11 seasons as the fiery Latin wife of Jay Pritchett.

She is super successful now, but it’s cool to see throwbacks like these from her past especially with the blonde hair. Sofia posted a hilarious yet very real set of pictures to remind people to wear a mask during the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s not an earring or a hat or a weird chin thing, it’s a mask, and wearing it can save a life. #WearAMask so we can all get through this” she captioned the post.
Sofia has also taken several precautions on the set of America’s Got Talent wearing a mask behind the scenes when not filming. The judges also sit six feet apart on the show which has gone through several new format changes to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
