Sofia Vergara is red hot!

The "Modern Family" actress appears on the May 2015 cover of Vanity Fair, and she, of course, looks ah-mazing.

In the cover shot by Annie Leibovitz, the 42-year-old channels an Old Hollywood movie star wearing a red, off-the-shoulder curve-hugging dress, silver earrings and a white feather boa. With her curled hair pulled to the side, her deep red lips and her sultry glare, the cover gives us a strong Sophia Loren vibe.

The magazine also posted a video on Instagram to give us a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the cover:

Inside the issue, Vergara opens up about one of her most-talked about assets -- her ample bosom.

"My whole life, buying a bra was a nightmare. What I used to do when I moved to L.A., I found places like Frederick’s of Hollywood that make bras for [strippers]," she told the mag. "Believe me, I wish I had fake boobs. I lay down and they completely go down like all the way, like here. It’s not fun."

The actress also spilled her initial thoughts to on now-fiancee Joe Mangiello (he was "too hot"), her "Modern Family" character being stereotypical ("Who would't want to be Gloria?"), and how the press reacts to her wearing a consistent style ("What the f*ck do you want me to wear?")

The "Hot Pursuit" star is unapologetic and always willing to speak her mind, and for that, we will always love her. Oh, and for her fabulous style too, of course.
