Talk about a blonde bombshell! Sofia Vergara stepped out on Wednesday, July 31 in Los Angeles, showing off her natural hair color.

Wearing leggings, a gray sweater and sunglasses, the Modern Family star looked gorgeous debuting her new 'do. In March, the actress also went back to her roots, posting a photo via Instagram of her lighter locks.

"I'm a natural blonde, but when I started acting, I would go to auditions, and they didn't know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent -- but I had blonde hair," she explained in a 2010 interview with Self magazine. "The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, 'Oh, she's the hot Latin girl.'"

She added, "I loved it. Being brunette toned me down a bit."

It's been a fun summer for the 41-year-old actress so far, who recently vacationed in Mykonos, Greece, with her fiance Nick Loeb.

Vergara is mom to son, Manolo, 20, whom she had with her first husband, her high school sweetheart Joe Gonzalez. She's been engaged to Loeb since June 2012.
