On Tuesday readers named Sofia Vergara the Most Desirable Woman of 2012 and the rest of the world wondered what took them so long.

The 39-year-old Colombian beauty steams up the small screen on Modern Family and consistently wows on the red carpet with her killer curves.

Genetics aside, here are a few style and beauty tricks that help Vergara look her hottest: 

1. "Guy-hot" hair. While other stars sport tight updos and intricate styles, the star alternates between two looks men love: shiny loose waves and flirty ponytails.

2. Mega lashes. Vergara was blessed with big, beautiful brows and a natural cat-eye shape. To enhance the CoverGirl spokesmodel's best assets (from the neck up), her makeup artist Kayleen McAdams applies a few individual false lashes and several coats of mascara.  

3. Dazzling jewelry. "I never go out to [red carpet] events without bling-bling," she said at the SAG Awards of her flashy Lorraine Schwartz earrings and matching bracelet.

4. Figure-enhancing dresses. She may have the body of a woman half her age, but Vergara is careful about how she shows it off. "I love tight dresses," she told USA Weekend of her signature silhouette. "But I don't do tight and short now. I do tight and long."


5. Fierce posing skills. With her hand on her hip, shoulders back and chin tilted ever-so-slightly, Vergara’s sexy stance makes everyone stop and stare.
