Sofia Vergara stepped out in all her golden glory to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her Emmy Award-winning work on Modern Family Thursday.

Dressed in a strapless, floral embroidered gold dress accessorized with matching Neil Lane jewels – including a serpent bangle with gold and colored gems, a large citrine diamond, and platinum earrings – the 42-year-old actress glowed next to her fiancé, Joe Manganiello, 38.

The ceremony came just hours after Vergara and her ex-husband, Nick Loeb, 39, squared off on dueling morning talk shows about the battle over their frozen embryos.

Vergara’s Modern Family co-stars Julie Bowen, Ed O’Neill and Eric Stonestreet were also in attendance at the ceremony. Steven Levitan, a co-creator and executive producer of the series, Stonestreet, and Vergara’s son, Manolo, also spoke at the podium on her behalf.

“It is such an honor to be given this recognition,” Vergara posted on her website.

The Columbian beauty’s star is the 2,551st plaque on the walkway, and is situated adjacent to O’Neill’s, who plays her husband on the sitcom.
