As Sofia Vergara's star has risen in Hollywood, so too has her status as a curvaceous fashion fixture on the red carpet, most notably as the poster-woman for body-hugging silhouettes in bold colors. Following yesterday's news that the Modern Family actress is engaged to longtime beau Nick Loeb, her awards season style might be the best indication of how she'll look for her moment in the center aisle.
More than any other designer (including Marchesa and Roberto Cavalli), the star has favored Vera Wang for high-profile events—first donning a sizzling red corset gown with a ribbon-wrapped waist at the 2011 Golden Globes (left), followed by a coral draped chiffon, one-shouldered gown (center) at the Emmy Awards later that year. For the 2012 Golden Globes in January, Vergara walked the carpet in a modified navy version of a bridal gown (right) Wang famously showed in her all-black-and-nude Fall 2012 collection. We noted at the time that the strapless neckline and flange mermaid skirt created Vergara's best look to date, so we're curious to see whether or not she'll opt for a similar feel on her wedding day.
