Why Did Sofia Vergara Dye Her Blonde Hair Brunette?

When Sofia Vergara hit the red carpet at the CFDA Awards, everything about her look was as it should be: the plunging neckline and jewel-toned hue of her Herve L. Leroux gown, her Lorraine Schwartz blinged-out necklace, and her long brown hair worn down in bombshell waves.

Wait. Wasn’t she a blonde just a minute ago?

“I [dyed] it for a movie I shot in New Orleans with Jason Statham [a crime drama called Heat],” Vergara told PEOPLE at the cocktail party before the awards. “Now, I did it a little bit darker.”

But she admits that she yearns for her sun-kissed roots, pointing at a friend who accompanied her to the event: “Now I got jealous when I saw her today. She’s so blonde! I want to do it again!”

Tell us: Do you prefer Vergara as a brunette or a blonde?

No!! She looks so much better with darker hair. In fact her hair color is beautiful in the earlier episodes of Modern Family. The blonde makes her look older.
