FAST FACTS Total shoot time: 5 hours Lunch break: Sofia noshed on papaya, edamame, apples and almond butter
Miami has always been big on celebration, especially at the peak of the city’s social season. Let’s face it: We’re just not a low-slung-ponytail-and-black-ballet-flats kind of town. We wanted our 18th-anniversary cover to be glamorously festive in a modern, polished way, and Sofia Vergara’s charismatic beauty led us to a bevy of red-carpet looks reminiscent of Jessica Rabbit’s verve and curves. This season’s runways gave us electrifying sequins, wild prints, a bevy of crimson shades and bold brights that really pop.
“Steve made a fantastic music mix during the shoot! Lots of ’80s and ’90s hits and a little hip-hop: Bebel Gilberto, Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Biggie Smalls, P. Diddy, Groove Armada, Blondie, Madonna, Bon Jovi…everyone commented on how great it was.”—Sofia Vergara
