Dressed in vibrant tulip-patterned frocks in a chandelier-lit suite at Beverly Hills’s Peninsula Hotel (florals for spring—groundbreaking, I know), Sofia Vergara and I sip Pellegrino while chatting all things summer beauty and style. Afternooning with scarily flawless Emmy winners is not exactly my average weekday; I’ve been invited to Vergara’s suite to celebrate her just-launched collection of shapewear.
Comfort Shape is a new collection from EBY, an underwear subscription service offering comfy thongs, briefs, bikinis, boy shorts, and now shapewear, co-founded by Vergara. EBY is known for its seamless flocking technology and use of material made of smoothing silicone but with a velvety feel, which was modified to create this line of shapewear promised to move with your body instead of suffocating it. “You think of shapewear as the stuff you wear for special occasions but because of the technology we’ve been able to achieve a product that’s super comfortable so you can look like you’re ready for a red carpet every day. You don’t have to suffer,” Vergara told me. “That’s the magnificent thing about our shapewear. It doesn’t torture you.”
Graced with this chance to talk all about fashion and beauty with Vergara, I asked the actress to spill her summer must-haves. From her drugstore sensitive skin staples to the “old lady” hat style she’s obsessed with, here’s how Vergara is doing 2019 summer beauty and fashion.
