Girl Crush: Sofía Vergara

As long as I can remember, I have hated being White.

{I'm Italian but I wish my culture had this goin' on}

Okay, not really- but I am always a wee bit upset that I'm not some exotic, beautiful, curvy, accent-using, mocha-skinned gal.

My "Girl Crushes" (girls I wanna look like!) span ALL races, nationalities, ages, hair colors so I'm not really as bias against whites as I make it sound - but ask any of my friends, they will tell you that I would be reborn a South American girl in a New York Recife Minute.

Now as true embellished as that notion is there is some truth to it.

Enter: Sofía Vergara

Like most girls, I have always said I wish I had features from other women.

SUCH AS:

Her Youthful Glow | Her Hair | Her Waist/Bust

and of course....

Her EVERYTHING.

... but as much as I like to fantasize about having any of these parts from these girls, I always said I hoped to retain my own face in the name of just being me.

(Can't you tell how crucial these conversations were to real life?)

With Sofia? Nope, nope and NOPE. I would melt myself down with a lighter if it meant that I would be reborn half as beautiful as this woman.

And on top of that ladies- she's funny! She's beautiful AND she's hilarious: couldn't hate her if you tried. The best of both worlds.

With much anticipation... I give you Sofia Vergara.

PS- fun fact: She's a NATURAL BLONDE but always has to dye her hair dark for roles.

On that note... I'm off! PS: I was recently at the Oregon Coast and just wanted to show you all the beautiful view. Heaven. (That's on a cliff).

{Me clifftop at Ecola State Park}

Have a great Thursday!

PS: I'm glad Sofia finally got her big break on Modern Family (though I first loved her on DirtySexyMoney) because the photo shoots she used to do before she was famous are quite... cheap looking. haha.

She is totally gorgeous, and definitely hilarious! I'm a huge fan. And I just learned TODAY that she's a natural blonde!

My girl crush has always been Gwen Stefani. Ever since I got No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom album for my 16th birthday back in 1996, my heart has beat for her. I love her style, her music, her voice, her HOT HUSBAND, everything!

Wow, she's certainly very womanly! I've secretly always wanted to be a curvy bombshell myself, but it's just never going to happen haha! I like your writing (:

Audrey Allure said...

She is definitely gorgeous! And I love Lauren Conrad too :)

Leah said...

Oh I didn't know that she is a natural blonde... I always see her with dark hair. Yes she is gorgeous, hot and fun. I adore her too.

Nathalie said...

It is really true, there are so many women one comes across where you think: What? She's really got it all :) Sofia is definitly one of them :)
I would definitly love to have bronze coloured tan... but well then there are enough example of tanned women wanting to be lighter... I think we women just can't be satisfied. It starts with never having anything to wear, etc, etc :)

And I so want to see you in motion, too. Please, please make a video!! :)
I think my voice sounds a little bit weird on the vid (well I think everyone thinks that about oneself). Anyhoo, bottom line is: Make a video :)
Big hug from over the ocean

I used to not like "being white" either, but now I relish it and embrace and love my heritage and background. It's all you can do.
I feel really fortunate that our culture has had a lot more opportunities than other "non-white" areas of the world .. BUT I will definitely agree that this Sofia is truly beautiful. I LOVE dark hair, it's so mysterious and sexy =)

Sher said...

Some people just have all the luck in the world! She is so drop dead gorgeous! Why is life so unfair:P

Hehe you're cute. Great pictures - beautiful. Glad to hear you'd like to retain your face ;)

Nice cliff!

Ps - I think you're somewhat exotic being Italian.

Kara said...

I love love love her so much, just because of Modern Family. She is beautiful and hilarious and WOW those boobies.

SO jealous of your pic on the coast. Bf and I were there about a year ago and it brings back the happiest memories.

Claire Kiefer said...

I've never seen her in anything, but you're right--she is SO beautiful!

bananas. said...

You know, i was just starting to notice her a lot more recdently. I don't watch mordern family but i did see an episode and she is definitely striking. Would've never guessed she was a natural blonde.

The Owl's Closet said...

She is seriously stunning. Looked amazing in that Carolina Herrera dress.

Hate to break it to you Caitlin, but Beyonce's hair is a weave. Any black woman who has hair that moves like that, is a weave or a wig. So don't be jealous; for $1000, you can roll deep in Indian hair as well.

Just a little insight from a sista!

Sofia is amazing. Love her.

Tasha Gregson said...

I don'y know her but she is gorgeous!! xx

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Haha, lol at "bias against whites"! I won't tell you my story on that, I so won't, not putting it on the internets like that haha ;-)

That view is indeed fantastic!!!!

Holly said...

South American women are gorgeous!...but so are you! Sofia is HOT! I think I have a girl crush on her too. Most of my friends growing up were Asian and I hated being the tall blonde white girl. I wanted to be Japanese so badly.

Scrummys said...

We need to address one thing here; YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! I can't believe you'd want to melt yourself down to be her. Yes, she's hot (very hot), but so are you, my darling! Love what you've got because you're fabulous ;)

Mari said...

She is gorgeous and thank love for posting about us brown skinned girls! All the time I find myself wanting ZERO curves and long blonde hair but this reminds me how beautiful we all are!

ps...you are fantastic..and I wouldn't change a thing!

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Oh wow! Sofia has a great body and face!! And Caitlin, you have a face that I'm sure no one else in this whole world has either! You are so uniquely beautiful yourself! :)

Mi Vida Bonita said...

She is beautiful and hilarious. Killer combo! I can't believe she is a natural blonde.

Have you seen her on Chelsea Lately?

Oregon coast is soooooo pretty, that photo is breath taking seriously.
