Sofia Vergara: 'I Don't Believe In a Natural Look!'

Updated

Sofia Vergara turns 41 today, and to celebrate, she got a pretty great gift: a sexy, sassy cover story in Harper’s Bazaar — plus the season three kickoff episode of the mag’s web series, The Look (below).

The brunette bombshell is her candid, funny self in the issue, which hits stands August 16. She also poses for drop-dead gorgeous photos in Dolce & Gabbana (on the cover) and Ralph Lauren Collection (the dramatic photo at left).

But Vergara confesses that no matter how high-fashion she gets, she’s got it all in perspective. About her Hermès Birkin bag collection, she says “I tell [my son] Manolo, ‘If I don’t have enough money for your college this month, you have to sell the Birkins,'” and adds that 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!'”

She also admits that she never tires of playing up her sex-bomb image. “I’m Latin; I do it no matter what. It’s automatic,” she says. “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.”

From the photos, it’s hard to believe Vergara needs any extra help, but that’s why she’s so lovable. For lots more photos and intimate details on the birthday girl, check out HarpersBazaar.com and pick up the August issue on stands July 16.

And don’t forget to watch her hilarious video (yes, she eats and still maintains that figure!) with editor Laura Brown, below. It’s worth it just for a glimpse of that massive rock on her ring finger — trust us.

What do you think of Vergara’s beauty mantra?
