Sofia Vergara’s love for fiancé Nick Loeb was on full display this weekend as the Modern Family star debuted her engagement ring during her first official public appearance since the pair announced their big news two weeks ago. And it’s a rock! The center cushion-cut square diamond is seven carats, with two additional stones flanking each side, as you can see in the photo above, taken at an event held the Joffrey Ballet School in New York on Friday. (On Saturday, we spotted her man, an Onion Crunch executive, shopping at Super Saturday in the Hamptons!) ”The most important thing was that he was very handsome,” Vergara recently told InStyle of her beau, who she met at a dinner after the 2010 SAG Awards. “But he also was very funny, talking sh—to me like a normal person.” So, now that you see it close-up, what do you think? Leave your unfiltered thoughts in the comments!

Hold up—we still have another whole month of summer!

Supermodels are having quite the renaissance! On the heels of MTV’s announcement that model-hosted House of Style is making its way back to the network, HBO is releasing its own behind-the-scenes documentary on the lives of our favorite former catwalk queens. About Face: Supermodels Then and Now asked “Uptown Girl” Christie Brinkley, Isabella Rossellini, Jerry Hall, and more all about what it was like to be a supermodel—and how they’ve navigated the rocky road post-stardom. As it turns out, their resilient attitudes can be summed up in a quote from Carmen Dell’Orefice: ”When I go, I want to go with my high heels on. Simple as that!” Watch the trailer above for a sneak peek, and tune into HBO tonight at 9 pm/ET to see it in full.

We absolutely adored the strawberry lip Emmy Rossum wore to Showtime’s Summer Soiree this weekend—so we asked her to tell us everything about it! “I wanted a red-orange to mimic the Christian Louboutin color,” Rossum (who was wearing Louboutins that night) told InStyle.com. Matching your lips to your shoes? We love it! “It’s actually a lipstick I had in my drawer, a MAC lipstick called Lady Danger,” she continued. “The darker, deeper bluer reds tend to go a little bit more vampy. I liked this because it’s younger and more fun for summer.” Get your own tube of Lady Danger for $14.50 at maccosmetics.com.
BB creams are the beauty sensation that everyone is talking about. And they are having a serious moment! The multi-tasking products have a lightweight feel, but create a flawless canvas. But what makes a BB cream (BB is short for beauty balm) different from tinted moisturizers? The answer lies in the formula, which is laced with powerful antioxidants, combats issues like acne and aging, and improves your skin with each use. Plus, the “smart” pigments blend seamlessly to match every tone. We put together a comprehensive list of our favorite BB Creams on the market. Click through to see them all!
