Sofia Vergara says she is naturally sexy due to her Latin roots.

The 41-year-old Modern Family actress has been touted as one of the sexiest women on the planet.

The Colombian star believes she is naturally inclined to look good, as her culture promotes extensive grooming habits.

"I'm Latin; I do it no matter what. It's automatic," she told America’s Harper’s Bazaar magazine. "I shower, do hair and makeup. For me, it's like shaving. I don't believe in a natural look. Lipstick brightens your face! Unless you're Gisele Bündchen or 19, you need something."

The CoverGirl spokesmodel covers the August edition of the magazine and admitted she is a slave to designer brands.

Sofia believes splashing out $10,000 on a tote is a better addiction than drugs or alcohol.

"I tell [my son] Manolo, ‘If I don't have enough money for your college this month, you have to sell the Birkins’," she confessed, adding that she tells her business manager, “‘What would you prefer? Me popping champagne bottles and doing drugs and wasting money or buying bags? These are valuable. These, Manolo can sell!'"

To celebrate her birthday on Wednesday, Sofia was gifted with a large cake on the set of her TV show.

The curvy star shared the moment with her millions of fans online.

“Happy birthday to me!” she wrote on Twitter, later adding, “Happy bday on the set !! My cake!!!!!”

Sofia is engaged to Nick Loeb and the pair are regulars on the party circuit.

Despite briefly splitting from him in 2012, it seems her romance with the businessman is stronger than ever.

Earlier this year it was claimed the pair were house-hunting for a property in Los Angeles, California.
