Sofia Vergara Has a Hard Time Wearing Clothes


Sofia Vergara sometimes struggles to clothe her beautiful, beautiful body. “I can barely wear an outfit or a dress that I don’t have to alter,” the actress said at a red-carpet event. Sometimes, alterations are simple: taking in at a seam here, letting out at a seam there. “But other designers, I have to really, like, reconstruct them inside. At the beginning, I was getting sample sizes, which of course didn’t fit and I would have to transform them. Those were works of art that I had to do with my seamstress. Because to make all this fit in a sample size is insane!” [The Cut]
