'Modern Family' actress Sofia Vergara has become the new face of CoverGirl and says it's a dream come true.
Sofia Vergara has become the new face of CoverGirl.
Speaking of her new role, she told People magazine: "It feels amazing. I've always wanted to be a CoverGirl. I always loved seeing the pictures of the campaigns in magazines.
"My mother used to do her make-up every day, and I used to watch her, just fascinated. I've always had a very good relationship with makeup; it's one of my favourite things."
Sofia - who is to launch her own clothing range later this year - says one of the reasons the role appealed to her was that other Latino girls can look up to her.
She said: "When you grow up, you look up to girls in the magazines, and you never think you're going to be that pretty, or that well made-up, or that glamorous. I love that I have the Latin flavour; Latin girls can relate to me, see what I'm wearing, see my makeup, my hairstyle."
