Sofía Vergara married Joe Manganiello in 2015.

The duo stepped out in Beverly Hills, Calif., where they were photographed on the way to their meal.

The Modern Family alum stunned in a body-hugging black lace corset, purple pants, black heels and a red bag. The star glowed in a full face of makeup and had her long brown locks straightened for the big night. Meanwhile, the doctor wore blue jeans and a navy button down.
