Sofia Vergara snapped by Terry Richardson for Bazaar: hot or too pr0ny?

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara covers the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and I’m floored that the magazine would entrust this pre-fall fashion issue to the likes of Terry Richardson. On the cover, Sofia is wearing Dolce & Gabbana, and she looks pretty fantastic, but the entire shoot is dominiated by the trademark look of Richardson; that is, stark white and pr0ny. I sort of dig this tiered, black Ralph Lauren dress, but the sheer knowledge that Uncle Terry was pointing the camera sort of kills the whole effect for me.

The interview doesn’t seem terribly interesting, but I must admit that the magazine editors did Sofia a disservice by arranging the text to faciliate the white background of Terry’s usual style. It’s difficult to take anyone’s words seriously in such a context, but here are some excerpts anyway:

She’s high fashion to a point: “I tell [my son] Manolo, ‘If I don’t have enough money for your college this month, you have to sell the Birkins. 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 love being a sex bomb: “I’m Latin; I do it no matter what. It’s automatic. 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 Bundchen or 19, you need something.”

[From Harper's Bazaar]

Sofia says absolutely nothing wrong or offensive here, and it’s a shame that her presence is marred by Terry’s style, which (as you’ll see below) only grows worse as the shoot progresses. At least Sofia isn’t talking about her boobs this time.

In addition to the cover and editorial, Bazaar has also provided a video of Sofia eating “the world’s most expensive ice-cream sundae” while talking about how much she loves food. Enjoy!

    i lover her but what is her style if not p0rny.

  2. Jenn says:

    Well it’s refreshing to see some photos where her boobs are not totally in your face.

  3. GiGi says:

    My god, hasn’t this “style” of photography fallen out of favor yet? So talentless. So pointless. Still photoshopped to hell. I must be really missing something with Terry Richardson.

  4. Anna says:

    I really like the pictoral – it’s a lot less porny than most of TR’s work. Also I cover that red coat SF is wearing.

  5. Carolyn says:

    It’s easy to forget that Uncle Terry has done fashion photography for years when you’ve seen the photos he did with Lohan. Having said that these photos are ok but not remarkable.

    Yes the amount of photoshopping is astounding. The cover photo doesn’t look like Sofia.

  6. Jennifer12 says:

    It’s less porny than usual, probably because he can’t talk a 41 year old woman into the things he could talk 18-20 year olds.

  7. Yellowshaba says:

    There’s nothing about this woman that I can stand, nothing.. That being said she looks way better with lighter hair. I wouldn’t want uncle Terry remotely even looking at me let alone taking my picture, he got chimo eyes

  8. jen d. says:

    I don’t really see it as pr0ny. I like that she’s showing off her great legs instead of just her rack… I’m no photography expert, but I’m more bothered by the weird lighting than anything else.

  9. TheOriginalKitten says:

    The photos aren’t p0rny IMO, just ZZZZ. I’ve seen more exciting photos in the Sears catalog.

    I know Vergara is much-beloved around here but she bores the hell out of me—that is, when she’s not annoying the hell out of me.

  10. KB says:

    This spread just feels really underwhelming. Every photo is her looking over her shoulder. I feel like I could have taken the second picture from the bottom of the staircase.

    But I kind of love that she doesn’t take her acting career seriously. It’s always kind of funny sad reading comments from Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, and the like talking about how important it is for them to work with great directors…no sense of their actual range.

  11. Myrto says:

    I find her funny sometimes but also very annoying most of the time. I mean, she makes it her job, it seems, to reinforce those stereotypes about “Latin women”, how they’re so “hot and spicy”. I’m not sure that “chica caliente” crap is such a good thing for Hispanic women to emulate.

  12. RHONYC says:

    DANG! Sofia’s a bonified MILF!

    had no idea she was my age AND has a kid in college.

    way to represent chica! ;-)

  13. Harpreet says:

    Who is that interviewer? Soo bad.

  14. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    My God, is it just my eyes or does she look like Lana Del Rey (not a good cocomparison) in that last pic – this is why models should be on fashion mag covers. There are striking ones out there if cheesy celebs wouldn’t be always playing the pr/famehoing game.

  15. truthful says:

    her face looks different, maybe its the black dress.

  16. Holden says:

    If that’s too pr0ny, it’s the most disappointing one I’ve ever seen.

  17. Happy21 says:

    Not p0rny at all.

    She looks beautiful. Wish they had done less over the shoulder look shots but not bad as far as Uncle Terry goes…

  18. Kim says:

    She is a beautiful woman and these pics do her no justice. I dont get how he gets any photo jobs because he is a total hack of a photographer.

  19. moon says:

    that last photo just screams photoshop. her body does not look proportionate! or maybe it’s a weird camera angle.

  20. Joanna says:

    she uses botox, not that there’s anything wrong with that. i do too! just sayin!
