Sofía Vergara Once Had a Much Darker ’Do, According to These Modeling Throwback Pics

We can always count on Sofía Vergara for a stylish throwback, and while the 49-year-old star has been busy promoting new episodes of America's Got Talent, she still found time to dig up a few modeling shots from her past and upload them to her Instagram account.

In a new post, Vergara shared a slideshow of images where she is seen rocking a lingerie-like, leopard-print dress with brown lace around the bust. She captioned the photo, “#tbt Los Angeles” and added two emojis of cacti. She also credited Barry Peele, a photographer and real estate agent who has been a longtime friend of hers.

While we loved Vergara's animal print ’fit, we also noticed that she was sporting a much darker hairstyle at this time. Although the style, with the middle part and long waves, is very similar to her look now, it's clear that her hair was a much darker brown compared to the blonder ’do she wears today.

These photos were taken in the early 2000s (before her Modern Family days), which we've learned because the star actually posted a different set of photos from this same shoot on her account last year.

It was last September that Vergara uploaded a similar set of pics, and in her caption, she credited them as being taken in 2003. These photos also gave a better look at Vergara's dress, and we can see that she accessorized with a gold bangle on her left arm.

Given that she's shared photos from this shoot twice, it seems Vergara continues to love Peele's work, and while he may not do photoshoots of the actress anymore, the two have been spotted hanging out recently, like last November, when Peele documented their trip to the election polls.

Keep the throwbacks coming, Sofía.
