Sofia Vergara joins a new modern family: she just signed her first beauty contract with Covergirl and announced it herself on Twitter and Facebook live from the set.
The Emmy-nominated actress and mother is currently shooting her first advertising campaign for the cosmetics brand. The ads are scheduled to debut in January 2012 and Vergara will be representing some new additions to the Covergirl product line-up.
“We couldn’t think of a better person to represent our Brand. Sofia is gorgeous inside and out and has broad appeal,” said Vince Hudson, general manager, Covergirl cosmetics. “She personifies what it means to be a Covergirl through her confidence and beautiful sense of humor.”
Not only is this actress a lead in ABC’s Emmy-award winning series, “Modern Family,” (Wednesdays at 9PM ET), she also executive produced the Spanish version of “Desperate Housewives.”
“I have loved playing with makeup ever since I was a little girl,” said Sofia Vergara. “And now, I am so honored to join the line up of extraordinary women that are and have been Covergirls, and to be a part of a brand that is so committed to helping women look and feel beautiful.”
The list of famous Covergirls has included Christie Brinkley, Cheryl Tiegs, Rachel Hunter, Tyra Banks, Niki Taylor and Molly Sims. Its current roster of Covergirls includes the dynamic Queen Latifah, Drew Barrymore, Ellen DeGeneres, Dania Ramirez and Taylor Swift.
