Sofia Vergara's Sexy Style Evolution From Laid-Back Lady To Sultry Siren

Though Hollywood's celebrities are now ruled by a group of shrewd fashion dictators known as stylists, it wasn't always such a sartorial paradise. Just ten years ago, up-and-coming starlets were often left to fend for themselves on the red carpet, resulting in some truly questionable choices. One such star was Sofia Vergara. Though one could never call the Modern Family comic sartorially challenged, the actress did suffer a few missteps in her early days on the red carpet. Now, however, the star is rarely seen looking anything less than selfie-worthy — unless it is for comedic effect. Read on to reminisce about Sofia Vergara's style evolution, and celebrate her best looks to date.
