The warm California sun did nothing to wither Sofia Vergara as she kicked off another work week in Los Angeles on Monday (November 5).

Taking a break on the set of her hit TV show, the "Modern Family" actress kept chic and cool in a crisp white dress and matching hat as she lunched and chatted with cast and crew.

The Colombian born beauty plays the fiery Gloria Pritchett on ABC's award winning comedy - which returns with a new episode titled "Arrested" on Wednesday, November 7 at 9/8 central.

A synopsis from the "Modern Family" website reads: "When Haley is arrested for underage drinking, Phil, Claire, and Mitchell must intervene, leaving Cameron in charge of the kids. Jay's ex-wife, DeDe, makes a surprise visit, and he desperately tries to hide Gloria's pregnancy from her."
