Sofia Vergara is too curvy for most gowns, threatens to boycott the Globes


Sofia Vergara, my girlfriend, tweeted the above photo a few days ago, venting that none of the designer gowns fit her spectacular curves. Sigh… you know, I’m a hetersexual lady and everything, but Sofia just does it for me. I would not only go gay for a night with her, I would want to spend the rest of my life in Motorboat City. Too much information? I can’t help it. More Sofia!

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara still hasn’t found a dress to wear to this Sunday’s Golden Globes and is placing the blame on an unexpected culprit: Her show-stopping curves! The best supporting actress in television nominee took to Twitter Wednesday night to vent her fashion frustrations, posting a hilarious picture of her wrestling with an ill-fitting red frock.

“Nothing fits meeee!!!! I’m not going to the Golden Globes!!!!!!!!,” she Tweeted.

This isn’t the first time that the star has pointed to her feminine shape as being problematic with fashion, telling Access Hollywood in 2010, “I think because of the shape of my body I have learned to accept that I cannot just wear anything that is [in] fashion because…not everything, you know, fits.”

Healthy curves and a sense of humor? What could be more in style than that? Come back here Sunday night to see what Sofia and all the Golden Globes stars picked for the red carpet.

[From People]

I love Sofia’s Twitter account. Her tweets are genuinely funny, and she always posts a ton of photos from the set of Modern Family. I wonder if producers mind that she gives away future plotlines constantly? They probably mind for a minute, and then they take a look at her boobs and remember why they keep her around.

    Love her! I would motor boat her as well!

  2. meg says:

    She has eyebrows like Bjork. Beautiful and the perfect frames for those eyes. I’ve always envied them!

  3. December says:

    This woman is gorgeous. I hope people like her and Christina Hendricks bring back the volputous figure to Hollywood.

  4. albeli says:

    Methinks she doth protest too much.

  5. Delta Juliet says:


    She is hysterical on Modern Family. The other night hubby said “I can’t help just looking at her boobs”. I was like “Don’t feel bad…neither can I” LOL

  6. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Blowing rasberries..

  7. Ruby Red Lips2 says:

    She has fab feminine curvy figure and can barely fit into a h’wood dress….wtf?!! So skinny, bony, shapeless boy figures are hot???!! (sic)

  8. Oi says:

    You’d think a designer would make her something custom and in exchange have her promote their willingness to fit ‘real women’. if what I observed from watching Rachel Zoe is correct, they usually have to modify the dresses anyway. Is it that hard to get her something that fits? Or us it the designers and the overall industry’s unwillingness to do so?

  9. Sumodo1 says:

    Sophia is correct. Try being fashionable in a world of size 0s. Not fun. I have to buy skirts in one size and jackets in another and go to the tailor to have the sleeves tapered and shortened. Advice to designers: we have something called hips and boobs–do something fast!

  10. KLO says:

    I was just thinking the other day – the stars keep complaining about having to fit into sample sizes. Well, with all that money, couldn’t they just have a gown custom made so it fits?
    This is just mind-boggling.

    I too have a freakish figure with boobs and butt and tiny/short waist and pretty much nothing in the shops fits me.
    So that’s what i would do. Get a seamstress.

  11. leuce7 says:

    Kaiser, you bring sparkle into my life everyday with your posts.

    And I love Sofia Vergara, she’s always had a great sense of humor and ability to laugh at herself, and acknowledges the pluses and minuses of her…assets…with grace.

  12. GradStudentEatingHotPockets says:

    @KLO I think the dresses are just to be borrowed from the designer so they don’t usually buy them…or else I think they really would just pay to get a custom gown.

    But omg…Sophia…gorgeous!

  13. JM says:

    There is nothing wrong with Sofia’s figure. Her only crime is having a real woman’s body not one of a prepubescent boy. Designers who make only size 0, 00, 000 need to wise up to the fact that not all of Hollywood wants to be a skeletal bobblehead just to fit into their frocks.

  14. AngelMay says:

    Bitch can’t buy her own dress?

  15. bella says:

    Are you kidding me? I wouldn’t call this woman curvy…She’s petite…tiny…isn’t she? Or am I crazy. Is she considered curvy because she has breasts? GOD. I may as well never go out in public again…geesh

  16. Lemon Drops says:

    The sad thing is Hollywood makes us think this is curvy, but to me she still looks stick-thin compared to the average American woman.

  17. Mary Jane says:

    What a beautiful, funny, and sexy lady — new girl crush!
    Sofia, honey, if “nothing” fits, then wear “nothing!”
    P.S. Us 5-foot size 0′s look bad in “big girl” clothes as well… they don’t proportion them correctly for shorties!

  18. bored says:

    Why are people so bitter about the size 0′s? Why do you guys call them bobbleheads and not “real”? I understand there is an unspoken rule of skinniness going on there but just because you dont fit the criteria doesnt mean you get to attack others for their shape. Youre not better than anyone who would call you ‘fat’ for not being a 00! Shame shame shame. Relax! And by the way I have boobies and ass like Sofia so I have no affiliation to the waifs, just saying settle down. Someone wearing a size 0 is not a personal attack and for a lot of women its their natural size.

  19. whatever says:

    Really…another …its my body cry me a river crap…get over yourselves

  20. whatever says:

    soooooooooooo tired of “im too fat…in all the right places ..wink wink..self involved bs” christiana hindricks main culpret..junk…get me out of here

  21. TootToot says:

    I don’t have anything against women who are size zero, I just don’t know any women who ARE a size zero! My friends range from 4-12. But really, who cares! Not to sound lame, but women look great in all sizes. Then again, I don’t look at Hollywood people as automatically beautiful and perfect. That would drive me insane, I think.

  22. tango says:

    Oh please, be quiet already. Work with a designer to custom make a gown for you if you know the sample sizes aren’t going to work.

    I think it’s just another ploy to bring attention to her body. At this point, I’m tired of it and would prefer she not constantly say how hard it is to have boobs and hips in Hollywood all the while collecting a paycheck for having exactly that!

    Personally I hope she stays home from Globes. If she does go, I bet her boobs will be front and center.

  23. lucy2 says:

    I can’t believe there aren’t designers fighting over doing a custom gown for her. She always looks gorgeous.

  24. MNGIRL76 says:

    Yeah…I feel real sorry for her. She has designers and seamstresses at her beck and call. I am a very top heavy woman that can’t find tops or sundresses to fit right, which costs loads to have altered. Seriously? WTF! Cry me a river. I don’t watch the show, so I guess I do NOT get all her hype! Good. Don’t go!

  25. Liana says:

    meh. Don’t understand the attraction to her (other than the obvious physical because she IS absolutely beautiful). Her personality actually annoys me and I don’t find her particularly refreshing.

  26. MNGIRL76 says:

    Thank you TANGO! Well said! We will just have to wait and see if they are front and center! (OBVIOUSLY!)

  27. Fishlips says:

    I just want to touch her boobies. I think my husband would also enjoy doing the same.

  28. N says:

    This posting irritates me tremendously because I know it is true. Sofia is the kind of female body dresses should be made for – not the prepubescent male bodies so many actress display!!

    Love Sofia! Please do not go the route of so many actresses and conform! You are gorgeous!

  29. Chicoulina says:

    She’s very feminine and sexy but I don’t think she’s photogenic.She looks a thousand times better on Tv then in photos.
    Why do I have a feeling her breasts aren’t real.I have huge breasts like she does but when pressed up they don’t shape like hers do.

  30. Lori says:

    I would think if Christina Hendricks and Salma Hayek can find dresses, this lady can.

  31. zeko says:

    maybe she should try smaller implants

  32. Nanz says:

    Those are real, aren’t they?? Amazing.

  33. lisa says:

    I think she is beautiful. But there have been actually REAL curvy women in the past and they have all found designer dresses to wear on the Red Carpets..

    Queen Latifah and others. Have had dresses and that is just ONE example. So these women can find dresses. Maybe they are picking the wrong designers.

    And it has become a weird thing. YES some women have weight issues. But not every thin woman is anorexic. I don’t know where people live. But where I live I see women of all sizes, and shapes. Some women are naturally thin.. their body type. Does not mean they have an eating disorder. I don’t get why any time a woman is thin now she gets labeled. I guess it is reverse Bitch attack. Because a few years ago Sofia would have been called heavy. She is not. but man why can’t women accept the fact that all women are different and don’t fit in the same mode nor should they have too.

    I have friends that are thinner than myself. heavier. And all beautiful because we are all different.

  34. TeeTee says:

    she is gorgeous!!! and funny!!

    if she were a size 0–she’d NOT be laughing, she’d be mean and hungry.

    Just kidding, sorta

    I LOVE this woman!

  35. hannah says:

    I’m with you…I’m all for differenct body types being considered sexy (although not when it then involves anybody without curves being called a little boy or not a real woman)

    but really lets look at this. yes, she is curvy, in a way that has always been popular. she has a small waist and a nice rack and a$$. and she is thin everywhere else. I’m not sure when this was ever considred not sexy.

  36. Kim says:

    Embrace them Sofia as i know you do =)
    U R beautiful! A designer will make you a dress because who wouldnt want to see you walk the carpet in one of their gowns!

  37. Kim says:

    Bored is right. Some people are naturally a size 0. Yes the celebs who starve themselves to be size 0 arent helping but there are girls who are very small naturally and get made fun of just like bigger girls& its hurts all the same. Dont assume thin people are 100% happy and handed everything because they are thin. I would wish by now with all the beautiful men and women out there on tv in all shapes and sizes this wouldnt still be such an issue but i guess it always will be =(

  38. BRE says:

    I do not have sympathy for any of the celebs and their inability to fit into stuff that is borrowed or given freely. Celebs are not going to actually spend money on these designer dresses but they want the designer name when they walk the carpet to get more attention. Go pay for a dress to be made, if they all did that, it would force designers to make others sizes.

  39. Kloops says:

    I love her. I think she’s adorable, but I’m not totally buying the “nothing fits” schtick. She’s skinny with big boobs. She may not fit haute couture sample sizes, but there are a ton of designers who would LOVE to dress her.

  40. Apostate says:

    This luscious Latina deserves to be in a form-fitting,eye-popping outfit. Won’t some fashion designer come to her rescue? No? Well,I’m stepping up to the plate.

  41. truthzbetta says:

    Her body is pretty standard. Sorry, but true.

    If fashion designers aren’t making dresses for a truly normal shape for a woman, then they don’t know how to dress women.

    Fashion industry needs a makeover.

    They exist to make us look good, not other way around. We’re not “hangers” and every twit who calls us that should just design sheets and get the fuck away from women’s clothing design.

  42. Queenslander/My2Cents says:

    I love her!!!!!
    I do get what she is saying. I usually have to buy dresses to fit my boobs and hips then get my Mum to take in the waist etc. I’ve been doing it for years but sometimes it’s simply a pain in the arse when you want something new to wear that night. And Im 36 so you would think after all these years I would embrace getting the dresses fitted but I hate it. I get the sh!its everytime with Mum as she always manages to stick a pin into me somewhere. lol

    And to all my fellow QUEENSLANDERS flood effected out there, ALL THE BEST TO YOU. xxxx I’ve beeing cleaning for the last couple of days and having a little break. It’s totally heartbreaking but the community spirit is amazing.

  43. DSM says:

    MMMMmmmmmmm…. :) S. Vergara is smokin…

  44. Lia says:

    Why does it HAVE to be a designer gown?? Go to Macy’s, find a nice dress, and wear it. Nobody can tell the designers from the store-boughts anyway until the actresses plug the designer on the red carpet.

  45. Dee Vine says:

    How annoying. She’s a celeb and cant find a gown that fits. Rubbish. Just try on a few sizes bigger and have the seamstress take it in where it doesnt fit. Even normal people like me do it. She is just trying to indirectly tell everyone “look at me and my curves, i am so hot!”

  46. Eleonor says:

    @Tango: co-sign.
    If JLO can fit Victoria Beckham’s dress she can find a gown. She wants attention.

  47. Courtney says:

    Um there’s always been curvy women in Hollywood Sophia Loren Patricia Neal & Eva marie Saint come to mind. so Ms Vergara needs to shut her mouth she’s a lowly TV star those three mentioned above are all beloved legendary oscar emmy golden globe Bafta & Tony Winning stage and screen stars. sure Loren was thin but that wasn’t by choice she grew up in Italy during the depression and WWII which meant food rationing so accept for the 4 times she was pregnant she never weighed more than 115lbs at 5ft 8.5in so was called twig. and some do actually have things custom altered for them for example last year oscars Vanity Fair Party Amy Adams’s cobalt blue silk Chiffon Alberta Ferretti gown was custom altered for her due to the fact she was about 7 months pregnant with her daughter or in 1955 when Eva Marie Saint won best supporting actress the peach satin suit she wore was custom alterd because she was 9 months pregnant with her son Darrell who was born 2 days later or the taffeta bal gown Joanne Woodward won in in 1958 she made herself in part to hide the fact that she’d just had a miscarriage so get over yourselves

  48. orion70 says:

    I think when people dress for their body type, they do ok. She looks great in the second pic….however the first, trying to squeeze yourself into a skin tight outfit…doesn’t do much for that figure.

  49. Annie says:

    She has a fab figure (as well as a beautiful face)…not too skinny but certainly not what I’d call plus size or “voluptuous” or anything outside the normal beauty standards. She probably knows this too. Methinks she’s fishing for complements.

  50. Mizz Tickles says:

    SV looks so much like Catherine Zeta-Jones, it would be great if they would do a movie together – with Mark Ruffalo naked.

  51. MrsOdie2 says:

    “I would think if Christina Hendricks and Salma Hayek can find dresses, this lady can.”

    This was my thought exactly. Oprah also seems to do quite well dressing herself. Now, when SV goes to a stylist, and all they have on the racks are the sample sizes, then yes, I am sure none of those dresses fit her.

    She is gorgeous and we are the same age. She is a constant reminder to me of what a slacker I am in the personal maintenance department.

  52. Ruby Red Lips2 says:

    To everyone who says she has a personal tailor etc – thats not really the point…

    The point is the ‘desirable’ size for a woman in H’wood is a prepubescent boy, which very few women have naturally. Its a protest against the riduculous standard body size that is bordering on skeletal.

    Sophia is slim and curvy and it is ridiculous that there isn’t a sample size for women who look like real women (again not hating the naturally boyish, only the malnourished starved ones).

    People, 99% of women have breasts and bums and hips and waists, in varying sizes, not the straight up down, rib and hip bones jutting out

    Its time for H’wood to recognise curves as natural and beautiful

  53. bros says:

    there was a blind item on dlisted a while back about her being a diva about clothes.

    Which red-hot female star of an ensemble comedy has turned into quite the diva? An on-set source tells Star the actress believes she is the real draw of the show, and has been demanding more screen time and a better wardrobe — thus disrupting the cast’s family dynamic. (Star Magazine via Blind Gossip)

    Red hot = spicy = Latin = Sofia Vergara from Modern Family?

  54. poof says:

    Love Sophia. Good for her not trying to be a size zero.

  55. Camilla says:

    LOL! I was Sofia’s assistant when she first moved to LA and all I can say about her is this: if you have the chance to work for her, do it! hell do it for free! she takes care of the people around you and always make you feel great. She is very generous and caring and hysterically funny. Like you will pee in your pants laughing at her funny. Best of all? a beautiful person inside and out.

  56. tim says:

    if she wants to force the hand
    then when asked about her outfit, she can respond with her plight.
    or she could go with me wrapped around her.
    that works for me!

  57. beth says:

    “I wonder if producers mind that she gives away future plotlines constantly? They probably mind for a minute, and then they take a look at her boobs and remember why they keep her around.”

    hahahah… i think so too. but it doesnt hurt that she’s such an awesome mom – and you cant be one unless youre an awesome human being as well.

  58. LIl says:

    Some of the people critizing her are just jealous in my opinion. Of course, she will and can find something that will fit. She is just tweeting during a fitting. Some of these dresses are hit or miss. She isn’t literally “boycotting” as this title might suggest and she was being humorous about fittings. I know I don’t like trying on clothes until I find the exact dress I want and then I’m glad!

  59. Missy says:

    Maybe Sofia shouldn’t have got such big implants???

  60. MrsOdie2 says:

    She should have boycotted. Her dress did not work. And she lost to Jane Lynch AGAIN! I can’t believe Lynch’s one-note performance that is identical to every character she plays in everything keeps winning.

    Sophia’s dress would have been a lot better without the black ribbon around the waist. It made the dress look cheap. And the double corset back looked like the dress didn’t fit her, so they grabbed some black ribbon and tied it shut.

  61. Vanessa says:

    I have the same problem with clothes and for the same reasons. I cant afford custom clothes though. Ha! She is awesome!
