Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello make red carpet debut as newlyweds at Star Wars premiere

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello made their red-carpet debut as husband and wife when they stepped out at the Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens premiere in Los Angeles on Monday. And the lovebirds looked as handsome as ever as they stayed close to one another posing for the cameras at the highly anticipated event.

The Modern Family actress made a nod to Princess Leia's cinnamon bun from the original movie with her hairstyle for the evening, sweeping her brunette locks up into a low bun. She also kept to the Star Wars colour scheme of black and gold – opting for a figure-hugging LBD and a pair of metallic sandal heels. Meanwhile, Joe was dapper in a blue three-piece suit.

The loved-up pair wasted no time in hitting the red carpet for the first time as a married couple at the premiere of the year, having tied the knot last month in a star-studded lavish ceremony at Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

Celebrity guests Reese Witherspoon, Channing Tatum, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Harvey Weinstein watched as the acting duo exchanged vows wearing custom Zuhair Murad and John Varvatos, respectively.

The newlyweds then jetted off on a romantic honeymoon at the exclusive resort Parrot Cay by COMO on a private island in Turks and Caicos.

Sofia, 43, recently opened up about her "fairytale" wedding to Ellen DeGeneres on her show.

"He was very excited to give me away," the actress said of her son Manolo, who walked his mum down the aisle. "It was like a dream, like a fairytale. Like, it came out perfectly how I wanted. I have to say, the people that work helping me do the wedding, amazing!"

Sofia then revealed that the reception lasted all through the night, until around six the next morning. "We had like a party and then we had an after-party," she joked.
