When you think Sofia Vergara, what body part immediately springs to mind? Her face, right? Yeah, we thought so.

Which is why the Modern Family star is the perfect choice to serve as the newest visage of CoverGirl.

"Hola! Can't hold this secret any longer! I am the new @COVERGIRL and I am shooting my first ad today!" she wrote on Facebook. "I'm so honored to be part of this amazing group of women. There's a cover girl in all of us."

The amazing group of which she speaks includes Ellen DeGeneres, Taylor Swift , Queen Latifah, Drew Barrymore and Dania Ramirez, all of whom are in the makeup giant's current stable of fresh-faced talent.

"I have loved playing with makeup ever since I was a little girl," Vergara said in a formal statement.

"And now, I am so honored to join the lineup of extraordinary women that are and have been CoverGirls, and to be a part of a brand that is so committed to helping women look and feel beautiful."

The 38-year-old's ads will begin running in January 2012.

But while Sofia gave her Facebook fans and Twitter followers a sneak peek at some of her campaign looks, the above exclusive behind-the-scenes photo is, well, exclusively ours. You're welcome.
