Sofia Vergara sunglasses prade purse tavern prada purse blonde

She lightened her brunette locks a little bit back in March, and now Sofia Vergara has gone all the way ... back to her natural hair color! On Wednesday the Modern Family hottie stepped out in Brentwood for lunch at Tavern, and she showed off her newly dyed blonde tresses.

Back in 2010, Sofia told Self Magazine:

    "I'm a natural blonde, but when I started acting, I would go to auditions, and they didn't know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent -- but I had blonde hair. The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, 'Oh, she's the hot Latin girl.' I loved it. I'd always felt a little 'too much' as a blonde, like a big-mouth version of Pamela Anderson. Being brunette toned me down a bit."

But now that she's snagged a role on a hit show and built up a fashion empire (seriously, she's raking in the dough from her K-Mart collection), she can do whatever she wants. And she looks hot, so why not?
