The 'Griselda' star gives a tour of her Los Angeles home in the March cover story of 'Architectural Digest'
While giving a tour of her luxurious walk-in closet, Sofía Vergara revealed a very special item.
The Griselda star opened the doors of her Beverly Park mansion for Architectural Digest’s March cover story. In an accompanying video, the actress invites viewers into the glamorous space, which houses racks of clothing and handbags, and several walls of shoes.
“This is where I actually really live — in my closet,” she admits. “This is where I spend most of my time. This is like a girl’s girl’s dream.”
Vergara shares that the objects on the room’s large marble-topped center island hold particular significance.
“All this stuff on the counter is very special for me,” she says, showing off an antique find from a shop in Paris and a treasured photo of her late brother and late cousin.
Then Vergara holds up a framed black-and-white, nude boudoir-style photo of herself, explaining wistfully, “And this picture, it was when I was young and fresh.”
Vergara also professes her love for the closet’s rainbow-order organization, which was designed by Linda Koopersmith, known as The Beverly Hills Organizer.
In an Instagram photo Vergara shared, fans got a glimpse of a framed photo showing the castmates’ re-creation of Sophia Loren's infamous side eye toward Jayne Mansfield in 1957 as Bowen stared down at Vergara’s cleavage at the 2014 Emmy Awards.
Vergara purchased the $26 million home in 2020 while she was still married to Joe Manganiello. After seven years of marriage, the pair announced their split in July 2023 and Manganiello filed for divorce two days later.
Vergara tells AD she wanted the house to feel “homey and comfortable,” praising designer Ohara Davies-Gaetano for bringing her vision to life during a tumultuous time.
“I loved working with Ohara. She kind of saved my life because I was at a little of a crossroads,” Vergara explains in the video. “It was either, ‘I’m going to hate this house or I’m going to love this house. What am I going to do? I don’t want to move in here because I don’t think things are coming out the way I wanted.’”

One of her other favorite parts of the home is her lush backyard garden.
“When I found this house, it was horrific. It was like a castle in Transylvania,” she explains. “But when I walked outside and saw this garden, I knew this was where I wanted to live. This outdoor area is like an extension of the house. The most special area in the house.”
