Actress Sofia Vergara is a megastar today, but during her younger years, she was just a budding actress who loved to see the world! The Modern Family star recently took to Instagram to share some of her favorite travel memories and, in the pics, she looks nearly unrecognizable as a blonde bombshell.

“I’m so busy during the holidays that there’s nothing I love more than reconnecting with friends and family! Even though I love going to #CasaChipiChipi, here are some photos of my favorite trips over the years. Throwback!” Sofia, 46, wrote in the photo gallery’s caption, referring to her and her husband Joe Manganiello’s favorite holiday getaway destination. Take a look at Sofia as a blonde in the pics below!

In the snapshots, the young star can be seen visiting many famous tourist attractions such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, the Colosseum in Rome, Italy, and even the pyramids in Egypt. And the pics show the Hot Pursuit star wearing everything from a bikini on the beach to a snowsuit in a much colder climate.

If you’re wondering why her hair color is the only thing that looks different between then and now, that’s probably because Sofia doesn’t look like she’s aged a day. While many have assumed she’s just had work done to maintain her youthful features, the actress has insisted that she notices herself looking older.

In August 2017, Sofia opened up to Women’s Health about coming to grips with aging. “Even if you want to, at this time in your life, you can’t be perfect,” she stated. “It’s not that you hate it, or that you’re upset about it, but it is our reality. We’re changing. I see it happening to me.”

While admitting that she wants to look great while still looking her age, she offered some friendly advice for other women struggling with accepting themselves. “I think if you are obsessed with this ‘I want to look younger’ thing, you’re going to go crazy,” she preached.

“People say, ‘Oh, you look like you’re in your twenties.’ Well, it’s not true. Our skin is different. I had never thought of the word ‘pore,’ then I’m like, ‘S–t! What do I do with these?'” Don’t worry Sofia, you just proved by sharing these pics that you will forever be an ageless beauty!
