Sofia Vergara turns 41 today, and to celebrate, she got a pretty great gift: a sexy, sassy cover story in Harper’s Bazaar — plus the season three kickoff episode of the mag’s web series, The Look (below).

The brunette bombshell is her candid, funny self in the issue, which hits stands August 16. She also poses for drop-dead gorgeous photos in Dolce & Gabbana (on the cover) and Ralph Lauren Collection (the dramatic photo at left).

But Vergara confesses that no matter how high-fashion she gets, she’s got it all in perspective. About her Hermès Birkin bag collection, she says “I tell [my son] Manolo, ‘If I don’t have enough money for your college this month, you have to sell the Birkins,'” and adds that she tells her business manager, “What would you prefer? Me popping champagne bottles and doing drugs and wasting money or buying bags? These are valuable. These, Manolo can sell!'”

She also admits that she never tires of playing up her sex-bomb image. “I’m Latin; I do it no matter what. It’s automatic,” she says. “I shower, do hair and makeup. For me, it’s like shaving. I don’t believe in a natural look. Lipstick brightens your face! Unless you’re Gisele Bündchen or 19, you need something.”

From the photos, it’s hard to believe Vergara needs any extra help, but that’s why she’s so lovable. For lots more photos and intimate details on the birthday girl, check out and pick up the August issue on stands July 16.

And don’t forget to watch her hilarious video (yes, she eats and still maintains that figure!) with editor Laura Brown, below. It’s worth it just for a glimpse of that massive rock on her ring finger — trust us.

What do you think of Vergara’s beauty mantra?

She is mentally sick not believing in natural look!

Manolo on

My mom Sofia is a liar. Her natural hair color is brown, not blonde and I remember when she had her boobs done.

Manolo you and your mom don’t have to justify anything to anyone. We all know everyone in Hollywood changes their appearances. Your mom is beautiful period. What’s so different about a regular woman that colors her hair to hide grey hair. Or they change the color completely. That’s what woman do some like to enhance their beauty while others like to be plain. It’s a matter of preference and plenty of woman who are not actresses get boob jobs. Big deal. No one should judge her at all

Mika on

Perfect example of a BIMBO An attractive but empty-headed young woman, esp. one perceived as a willing sex object.

Who cares if she gets plastic surgery or dyes her hair??? She’s not spending your money! I think more women could take a lesson from her. Aside from the gym, I’d never go out in public without makeup (I’m white btw). I see so many women who schlep around in sweats who just look like they rolled out of bed. Have some self-respect!

Also, apparently you nitwits don’t get sarcasm- I’m 99% sure the statement about selling the birkins was a joke.

Why don’t these female celebs over 40 care for their necks and upper hand veins as much as about other parts of their bodies? They reveal their age just as much, if not more.
