Modern Fuggily


May of you may be familiar with these photos already, but we certainly can’t let a little something like “the weekend” distract us from a good old-fashioned bout of WTF whiplash.

So. Here is Sofia, wandering around the set of Modern Family on her way to her car, sporting an outfit that really should incite a roiling “tights are not pants” rant, in which I would then share the story of the time I was shopping for a cheap wig at Aah’s and saw a girl wearing nylons as pants. She wasn’t trying on costumes, wasn’t doing anything transitional, just… wearing naught but L’eggs on her legs, white cotton crotch pad flapping in the breeze.

Well, let me tell you, my kingdom for a white cotton crotch pad:

Sometimes I try not to post candids — we’ve all had one of those days where we run errands looking like a vagrant — but it’s not like she’s wandering her way out of her house to buy Theraflu. She’s at her place of work, and said place is a film or TV set of some ilk, so its a very likely place for people to snap photos. Although you know what, even if she’d been on a Theraflu acquisition run I’d still have posted these because they are cracked out in the literal sense. Her crack. Is out. You CANNOT accessorize with your bun canyon. Tights are not pants. And tight especially are not panties.

    I think it’s a good reminder to us all: check the rear-view before heading out. Always. Even if you have an ass like hers.

      EXACTLY. I saw a woman on the Metro over the weekend wearing very high stilettos, and when she turned to get on the train the slit on the back of her skirt went right up to her… bun canyon.

    Also: Is that a patch of YET MORE SKIN I see on her lower back, or is she just twisting a hand around in some way I did not think possible?

    Why do people who are this attractive have so much trouble dressing themselves? WHAT IS THE DEAL?

    That’s horrible, but I actually think the front view, sans crack, looks awesome! I’ve come around to leggings, and she can pull them off.

    Remember when our biggest fear was our skirt being bunched up in our tights and exposing our asses?

    *siiiigh* Those were the days.

    They are a case of leggings are not pants. See the line of skin at her shoes? They are just sheer leggings. Much more sensible, ah.

      Nope, those are footless tights (not leggings) which are a thing. Rather opaque tights yes, but def. not leggings.

    I recently excoriated my stepdaughter for exactly this look. She’s beautiful, as is Sofia, but this is just plain ridiculous. YOU ARE NAKED!! That’s all.

    That is a Chanel purse. You can afford bottoms. PROPER bottoms.

      And a Gucci shawl. She’s a walking advert for Nordstrom…. after dark.

    Frankly, I refuse to believe that she didn’t know that this was happening.

      I agree. Homegirl is wearing a thong. SHE KNEW.

      I thought the same thing at first, but she’s usually pretty classy and put together. I hope it wasn’t intentional! This is a Pam Anderson move, not a Sofia Vergara one.

    BUN CANYON?!? HAHAHAHA! Heather, you are KILLING me over here. And I do think they’re tights… they’re just those awful footless tights.

    Eww. Gross. Sad to say, I’ve seen 12-year-old girls walking around with this look. Nasty.

    *shrug* Hadn’t she gotten up early that morning to announce the Golden Globe nominations? Probably wasn’t fully awake, considering how careful she usually is with her styling.

    Honestly, I can’t get crazy about this. She’s human, there’s no saying that the cape was supposed to cover her rear and shifted. A person in the public eye should probably know better than to do this, but how would anyone handle having their every angle photographed at every moment?

    There’s a difference between a candid shot of a celebrity outside and a public appearance. I don’t know if you could pay me enough to be a celebrity in this day and age.

    She’s got a great ass, but holy smokes, we women are required to wear underwear! There is a specific reason why we have to change pairs every day. Sofia…gross!

    If I had that butt, I’d show it off.

      Exactly! I was thinking “Great butt! Good job!”

        Agreed. Maybe she was sick of her front top half getting all the attention and wanted to let the world know just how great her ass is. Which it definitely is.

    There is no longer any need to undress a celebrity with your eyes… the celebrities are very obliging and wandering around virtually naked. Whatever happened to leaving something to the imagination? I don’t care if you have the most banging body ever – tights/leggings are NOT pants. *sigh* One day, we’ll all wake up from this nightmare and people will start dressing before they go out in public.

    If my ass looked like hers I would wear tights to flash everybody, everyday, all the time. Seriously.

    In her defense, the exact same thing happened to me once when I was wearing leggings (which is what these are – leggings and not tights). From the front they were fine but HALFWAY THROUGH THE DAY one of my guy friends told me he could see my tush. Not one of my other friends had mentioned it even though they had been with me for hours!
    And, fyi, a lot of this has to do with lighting. So when I did try to check my rear view at home, there hadn’t been an obvious issue.
    That was the day I learned to go up a size in leggings and to always have a longer shirt so there wouldn’t be any issues when I raised my arms or (as I was doing when my friend broke my nudity news to me) leaned over the bar.

    I’m sorry, while I’m NOT a fan of leggings as pants, I will say this: if I was 40 something and had a teenage kid (like I think she does) and have this ass, I would also be running around not be wearing pants!!

    #1) Her body is BANGING!!!

    #2) Those are obviously leggings, which fabric is way too thin and that’s her only problem; if these were completely opaque black leggings she’d look perfectly fine! I like her bag & her boots and if I looked like her, I’d show skin as much as possible!

    What a beautiful little butt and gorgeous legs. Sigh. But whether the thin fabric is deliberate, or unintentional, it is inexcusable.

    “Candids, WTF, ew, I’m Scared, weird tights” — the tags say it all, really!

    I actually give her a pass. She was leaving work, which means she could be partially in costume and said, screw it, I’m tired, I’m going home, I don’t care what I’m wearing right now. Some of those call times are early and if it was the day she announced the globes, she was up obscenely early. I know there are times where I’ve stepped out of my office to go home and literally stepped out of my shoes and walked to my car barefoot because my feet were killing me and I did not care one whit what anyone thought.

      I hear what you’re saying, but being barefoot is not having your butt on view to the world.

      No, not buying. If she’s tired I’d buy sweat pants and Runners, not this…

    Girlfriend just undid a pretty solid year of Well-Played red carpets with one unfortunate choice of legwear.

    Can we campaign to have “bun canyon” included in the next edition of the Oxford Dictionary?

    I’m wearing leggings right now as pants!! girl looks immaculate and always does! the legging fabric is just too thin over that area and the bright light doesnt help. I would LOVE to look like her!!! and I’m 27 her body is amazing!!!! (and for all counts natural)

    I must say, although very much *not* an advocate for leggings as pants, I’d much rather see this look on Sophia Vergara than say, oh I don’t know, the immensely overweight girls that are partial to this look in my home town. Just sayin’.

    “My kingdom for a white cotton crotch pad.” Oh my god, that sounds like a tagline for some kind of incontinence product commercial. i love you Heather <3!

    I was more thinking, “At least it’s a nice ass to leave hanging out! I’ve seen far worse!”

    I really think this is a problem with the leggings. I think they are leggings, and I think that women don’t realize that where the leggings are stretched thinner, like over your bum, they can very easily become see-thru. I feel like this is true with workout pants as well, which are also made with a high percentage of stretch – I often notice that I can see straight through my fellow-exerciser’s workout pants.
    Her ass is AMAZING, though. AMAZING.

    I wonder if this is a case where the leggings are darker, more opaque in person but the camera makes it appear see-through.

    I am currently wearing footless tights and darn it, if my ass looked that good, I would think twice about covering it up with a skirt!

    I know people keep saying they are thin leggings…. but if those are leggings they might as well be tights because they are so.tight. I don’t care what your body looks like, a hot body doesn’t make it more classy to be half- naked.

    Torn between mild butt envy (wow she looks good) and mild lip-curling tendencies (public bun canyon displays, not so good).
    I have a feeling she didn’t realize they were so see-through when she put them on. As long as they don’t resurface I’ll give her a pass THIS TIME (everybody makes a mistake once in a while, right?). Not again, Sofia, not again.

    I wonder if these “pants” are from her Kmart line…that might explain the thin fabric. She still looks smokin’ though!

    OMG, I was not ready for THAT! She seems like such a classy dame, yikes (and I, too, love those boots, and she does, indeed, have a nice ass). BUT (see what I did there), Sofia, darling, put on some pants!!

    The university gym that I go to often has girls working out in leggings as pants. With all the bodily contortions that happen, so many different parts become see-through!
