"I'm attracted to very feminine clothes," says Vergara, who is appearing this month in the new 3-D film The Smurfs. This floral silk dress is perfect for an end-of-summer party, and it segues easily into fall with a chunky cardigan and high-heeled galoshes or a trench and stacked-heel boots. "These are fun outfits because they're so unexpected," Vergara says.
