Sofia Vergara Says Miss Colombia Is 'Still The Queen'

'Still the queen.'

Sofia Vergara offered her support for Miss Colombia after she was incorrectly crowned Miss Universe at the 2015 beauty pageant.

Event host Steve Harvey hit headlines after declaring Ariadna Gutierrez had won the Las Vegas competition, only to return to the Planet Hollywood stage moments later to confess he had made a mistake.


"Folks I have to apologize...," he said on live TV. "The first runner-up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines."

Miss Universe 2014 winner Paulina Vega took the crown from Ariadna and gave it to Pia Wurtzbach instead. Ariadna tried to remain positive about the huge embarrassment, saying, "Everything happens for a reason. So I'm happy. I'm happy for all of what I did for becoming this... I'm so happy. Thank you for all. Thank you for voting for me."


Fans flooded Ariadna's social media accounts to show support—and among those was Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, who also hails from Colombia. The actress shared a photo of Ariadna's fleeting crowning moment on Instagram.

"Still the queen," Sofia captioned in her native Spanish, alongside a flower emoji.
