“From the beginning I had a plan. I knew I wanted a makeup contract and to work with companies like Pepsi or Kmart.”
This very revealing quote is from an interview with the South American actress and businesswoman, Sophia Vergara that appeared in the October issue of InStyle magazine. Written by Mike Sager, the piece gives an interesting insight into the remarkable life and success of this 43-year-old dynamo.

Starting in Barranquilla, Colombia
Vergara had her first career breakthrough when she was only 17-years-old. She appeared in a TV commercial for Pepsi that took off like a rocket. “I had offers for TV shows, movies and commercials in Colombia,” she says. Instead of pursuing her entertainment career she got married, dropped out of dental school and had a baby. Then things changed. “I got divorced and, as a result, started thinking about what I was going to do for my son.”
Appealing to Latinos and non-Latinos
Today Vergara is Forbes magazine’s top-earning television actress. This four-time Emmy nominee reportedly makes more than $300,000 per episode on Modern Family. She also has lucrative endorsement and licensing deals with CoverGirl, Head & Shoulders, Kay Jewelers and Rooms to Go.
Remarkably, she is a co-founder of Latin World Entertainment, a talent management and entertainment-marketing firm. This translates into a multimillion-dollar empire that includes a Spanish-language tech news site.
Wearing what suits her type of figure
“I go for the Italian designers because they think more about being voluptuous and sexy – and that’s what I like. I always head straight to Cavalli or Dolce & Gabbana. Sometimes I wear fashions by other designers but the clothes are for girls who are taller or flatter. I have to alter them.”

Marrying after 20 years as a single
Her son has just graduated from Emerson College and, very shortly she is getting married to a handsome, 6-foot-5 actor, Joe Manganiello who is 38-years-old and appeared in True Blood and Magic Mike XXL plus a recent movie with Reese Witherspoon (Hot Pursuit).
In conclusion, we can say that stunning Vergara is first among equals. Both famous and fabulously wealthy, she is also the co-founder of a business empire who is taking a run at happiness for the second time.

Today we’re going to take a look at a new documentary that chronicles the first all-women sailing crew to race around the world. This film has received rave reviews and if I find out where it’s playing at some point, I will definitely plan to see it.
When we saw Crazy, Rich Asians, the smash romantic comedy of 2018, we all agreed that one of the standout performers in the movie was Awkwafina (Nora Lum) – she was a definite scene-stealer. By the way, where are the sequels? The latest rumor is that filming will start with two movie sequels filmed back-to-back in 2020. Don’t bet the rent money. But never mind, when they do come out I’m sure they’ll knock our socks off.
I have a subscription to Air & Space, which is a bimonthly magazine that was first published in 1986 and comes from the Smithsonian. It’s especially relevant this year because this is the 50th Anniversary (1969-2019) of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong’s first words – as he stepped down onto the soil of Luna were, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind,” as the whole world watched.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
