Sofia Vergara recently surprised her 17.2 million Instagram followers with a throwback snap from the ’80s. In the photograph, the Modern Family star looked like she was a completely different person.
In the first picture in the double Instagram update, Vergara shared a close-up of her face. She displayed a bold reddish-orange lip, a heavy layer of blush, eyes rimmed with thick black eyeliner and plenty of eyeshadow. Her brunette locks had been treated to major volume and she wore bangs. Vergara typically appears to be flawless on the red carpet, so seeing her with a heavy-handed makeup look was quite a change for her followers.
She rocked a green carnival outfit with gold details and paired the ensemble with a huge, gold-and-green headpiece. In the second post, she gave her followers a better peek at the full outfit since she shared a full body shot. The look consisted of a skirt that rode low on her hips and featured a dark green waistband and voluminous ruffles. The top of the ensemble, a crop top, hugged her curves and featured a host of ruffles draped over her chest and shoulders. She even wore what appeared to be an armband that was covered with ruffles to finish her look.
In the caption, Vergara explained that the costume was worn for Carnaval, which was taking place in her hometown of Barranquilla, Colombia, in the 1980s. Her followers couldn’t get enough of the throwback look, and the post quickly racked up more than 8,700 likes within less than half an hour of uploading.
Vergara’s followers took to the comments section of the post to share their thoughts about the wild throwback.
“Wow! And you only got better over time!” one follower said.
“Always been fabulous,” another fan commented.
“You have been always a queen love u,” said another fan.
“That’s awesome! Please post more photos from the 80s and 90s, my favorite years,” another follower stated.
Vergara’s curves were mostly hidden by the voluminous ruffles of the throwback look. Nowadays, finding outfits that flaunt the actress’s hourglass figure is one of the things that Vergara does best. Just a few days ago, the bombshell shared a snap from the time she attended Dolce & Gabbana’s fashion show in Milan.
The beauty rocked a strapless dress with a floral print. The form-fitting silhouette meant that every inch of Vergara’s curvy figure was on full display. She shared a snap in which she posed while perched on the edge of the runway with off her insane body on view and ready for the cameras.
