It's a hot day in Los Angeles, but it got even hotter when Sofía Vergara stepped on to the red carpet at the 2014 Emmys.

Just as expected, the Colombian bombshell stunned in a white strapless Roberto Cavalli gown, which she so kindly modeled to E! News with a little wiggle and turn-around while chatting with Giuliana Rancic. But things could have gotten too hot to handle if her famous beau Joe Manganiello decided to join her for the awards show.

Which is exactly why she told him to stay at home.

"He's really hot, that's why I didn't bring him," Vergara quipped. "He's too hot, too tall, he takes a lot of space, so I'm like, ‘Listen Joe, please don't come.' Too handsome, too sexy."

Although the Modern Family star continued to joke that Manganiello "too hot for the red carpet," the attraction to the hunky actor goes beyond his chiseled bod and charming smile.

"We're having a lot of fun. We've been going out for just like two months and a half and he's a really funny guy, which is something really important for me and very nice guy," the happy celeb gushed.

But let's not forget that Sofía is a stunner on her own. So what does she owe to her amazing figure and enviable beauty?

"The older I get the more conscious I am to do more healthy things, now I'm working out more, I'm trying to eat healthier—do juices with vegetables and things that they tell you that are good for you," she tells us. "I try to do everything in moderation. I don't think I'll ever do a crazy diet or work out seven days a week or never eat anything or drink anything. No, I like to have my wine at dinner, I like to have my desserts here and there. I think you have to be happy."
