'Modern Family' Star Sofia Vergara Channels 'I Love Lucy' on Twitter
Why did the three-time Emmy nominee dress up like Lucille Ball's TV character, Lucy Ricardo? We have a theory.
Sofia Vergara has dressed up like Lucille Ball, star of the much loved TV shows I Love Lucy, The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour, The Lucky Show, Here’s Lucky and Life With Lucy. And she posted a photo of herself on her Twitter and WhoSay pages.
Under the photo, she wrote: "Lucyyyy Im hooome"
Ball is a comedy legend: She won four Emmys and was the first woman to run a major TV studio, Desilu.
But if you are wondering why Vergara morphed into the TV comedy queen's iconic red-headed housewife, your guess is as good as ours. Calls and emails to her 42West publicist have not yet been returned.
All we know is that it had to have taken quite a bit of time and effort to transform the Latin brunette into Lucy Ricardo with the help of a red curly wig, stenciled-on eyebrows, thick eyeliner, bright red lips, pearls and a ‘50s-style polka-dot frock. (See the photo below.)
The strange thing about this disguise is that she probably should have dressed up like Ricky Ricardo, aka Ball's husband, Desi Arnaz. After all, Arnaz and Vergara had/have pretty thick Spanish accents.
Well, his was Cuban and hers is Colombian. But you get my drift. And they are both kinda hard to understand. Although Vergara's Colombian accent seems to have gotten comically thicker, the longer she's on Modern Family.
Hey, you don't think this costume is from a fantasy or dream sequence coming up in the new season?
We could totally see Julie Bowen as Ethel Mertz and Ed O'Neill as Fred Mertz.
