Sofia Vergara is walking the walk after talking the talk, because the “Modern Family” actress is helping push a new line of handbags with proceeds going to benefit a cause the actress is extremely passionate about. Vergara recently shared a new summer line of handbags from Dolce&Gabbana, of which she happens to be the face of.
The Devotion Bag is quite pricey, ranging between $1,900 and $3,700 in price, but the famous fashion label has teamed up with the “Modern Family” star to ensure the expensive tag does some good work for the world.
A statement on the Dolce&Gabbana website states that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to help battle the coronavirus pandemic:
“To show their devotion to the cause, a portion of proceeds from the sales of the Devotion bags, seen in the new campaign starring Sofia Vergara, will be donated to Humanitas University to aid their critical global health initiatives.”
It’s the second push during COVID-19 for the fashion label after they made a donation to Humanitas University earlier in the year.
“The whole world and all of our lives will never be the same again. We truly hope that all of this will lead to a rebirth, and want to do our part so that all of us, especially future generations, can one day benefit from these fundamental scientific discoveries,” a statement from Dolce&Gabbana founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana read on their website.
The two designers have also spoken fondly of Vergara when discussing why they wanted her to be the face of the Devotion campaign:
“Sofia Vergara perfectly embodies the Dolce & Gabbana woman: beautiful, sunny and feminine. The shots of the new campaign are illuminated by her smile and energy!”
Sofia Vergara is getting ready for the upcoming 4th of July weekend while reflecting on her role as Gloria Pritchett on the recently-ended TV series, “Modern Family.”
“#tbt I miss Gloria!! #4thOfJuly?? #ModernFamily,” Vergara captioned the photo of her “Modern Family” character Gloria donning a pair of teeny-tiny American flag-themed denim shorts and a tank top with a photo of a bald eagle.
The look was patriotic and appreciated by fans who reminisced by one of the more memorable episodes of “Modern Family.”
