Sofia Vergara's complete style transformation

She's a *Modern* woman.

Sofia Vergara has been on our style radar for years. The 46-year-old Colombian bombshell began her career as a model and eventually shot to stardom playing fierce Gloria on ABC's hit show "Modern Family."

With a career spanning more than two decades, Vergara has graced her fair share of red carpets in a myriad of different styles, but there's one thing that remains consistent: She's not afraid to show off her curves.

Positive body image is just one of the many messages Vergara has preached, especially to her younger "Modern Family" co-stars.

"Working with Sofía Vergara and growing up with her was great, because she was, you know, a really amazing, curvy role model for me," Ariel Winter, who plays Alex Dunphy on the show, said in an interview with The Cut. "She helped me learn to accept the way I looked and love it and dress for it, and feel good about myself."

Vergara has come a long way. What began as a style consisting mainly of mini dresses, cargo pants and tight tank tops has transformed into glamorous red carpet gowns. Vergara has solidified herself as red carpet royalty (peep that jaw-dropping Vera Wang gown above) and has kicked butt along the way.
