Sofía Vergara just launched her own beauty brand called Toty, with a major focus on sunscreen. And she just dropped a casual throwback to her modeling days that features her topless in a G-string. As she put it in her caption, "The reason why Im religious now about using Transforma at 51😫 All those years of unprotected sun in the 90’s!!! @toty ☀️ #tbtmiami"
Sofía chatted with Harper's Bazaar about Toty over the summer, and mused, "I grew up in very tropical weather in Barranquilla, Colombia, and there was no one ever telling you, ‘Don’t get sunburn’ or ‘Don’t tan.’ I wish I had made that decision sooner also for the rest of my body, but I didn’t. I just thought to save my face, and that was it. So, I haven’t had my face in the sun without protection since the ’90s."
She added that back in the day "I would fry like a chicken with coconut oil, my whole body. No, I mean, every weekend. Now I only go in the sun maybe when I’m on vacation. Once or twice a year, I do still get a little sun, but my face—no."
As for the name Toty, Sofía says "In Latin America, everybody has a nickname, and so that was mine. It came from my brother who was two years older than me. They used to call me Sofi, and he couldn’t say Sofi, so he would say Toty. Only the people from Barranquilla call me like that, so if you say Toty and I turn around, I’m always thinking I’m going to see someone from Barranquilla."
