Sofia Vergara is struggling to remember exactly what happened when she wore a red-hot bikini while posing on a giant shoe. The 48-year-old “Modern Family” actress is fresh from being jokingly grilled on “The Ellen Show,” appearing alongside host Ellen DeGeneres and getting probed on everything from her snacking obsession to her social media. Sofia, who made headlines for rocking up to the set in a bold pink jumpsuit, wound up discussing a way more bold look. Check it out below.
Scroll for the snap, one Sofia shared with her Instagram followers not long before her “Ellen” appearance. Vergara, whose ’90s days came with swimwear modeling and a stint as a TV presenter, had posted a photo of herself quite literally rocking a bright red bikini while sitting on a massive shoe.
Shared with Sofia’s 21.8 million followers, the snap came captioned: ” Forgot to post this #tbt yesterday but I also forgot where was this,for what was this or why I was doing this!!!!???? For sure it was the 90,s Miami.”
The May 21 post was picked up on by Ellen. “Oh, oh my god,” Sofia said adding that she’d posted this “picture recently and it’s a mystery to me, because what could I have been doing in a shoe that big, first of all?”
Ellen called the shoe a “prop.” Sofia, meanwhile, asked: “What do you mean? It’s a high heel,” with Sofia asking what the situation would be where “I decided to sit in a red bikini….I was super-hot at that time.” See the video after the photo!
The giant shoe photo had been broadcasted on a screen behind Sofia and Ellen, with Ellen saying she looked “good.” The two then discussed whether it was “modeling.”
“I was doing something, but I don’t really know!!” Vergara exclaimed, laughing, then saying she must have been maybe 22 or 23. “But I looked great!” Sofia added. Sofia then discussed her modeling, saying it wasn’t fashion modeling, but she did wonder what she was selling. Maybe the shoe, the Colombian wondered. More after the video.
Sofia, who boasts far more Instagram followers than former sitcom co-stars including Ariel Winter or Sarah Hyland, received a massive response to the shoe post, one bringing in all the fans and all the comments. “You look the same” came from “America’s Got Talent” co-judge Heidi Klum. “POV: you are reading the caption with her accent,” a fan added.
Sofia’s “Ellen” appearance also saw her discuss the end of “Modern Family,” with the star seemingly unable to remember when the ABC sitcom ended. If you missed Sofia’s Ritz cracker snacking, just scroll.
