She was your best dressed at the Emmy Awards, and now, you can dress like Sofia Vergara, too! The
star launched her Kmart collection this week, a line of luxe-looking items that includes skirts, tops, denim, dresses, jewelry, shoes and more at super-affordable price points.
“For a long time I wanted to have a line like this,” the Colombian stunner told reporters in New York on Thursday. “I was able to team with Kmart, create a line for every woman, every size, every ethnicity. [They can] look cute and comfortable and sexy, even when they’re picking up their kids.”
Vergara said she took cues from the fashion runways of New York and Paris, applying big trends to her pieces. “If animal print is in fashion we’ll give them a little bit of that,” the CoverGirl explained. “I wanted a woman to be able to buy clothes and to look in magazines and say, ‘Oh, this looks a little bit like the dress I own for 20 bucks, though this is a $3,000 dress.'”
Wearing her own jeans — “They’re 29 bucks … but look like a million dollars,” she joked — plus a blue surplice top ($22.99), Vergara said she wears “everything” from the collection. And her alter ego does, too. “I’ve been wearing everything for Gloria for the show,” she revealed. “It’s perfect for her. Gloria loves animal prints and color, necklaces, so I’m using everything.”
For the holidays, the actress plans to add a little sparkle to the line with party dresses perfect for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. And she’s grateful to Kmart for giving her such creative freedom with the clothes, too.
“I always wanted to have a collection that I could collaborate on,” she shared. “It came very naturally for me — with the help of professionals! But I wanted to make my collection the way I dress, how I live. I didn’t want to just give my name to a collection; I wanted to be a part of it. And they’ve been great.”
