Sofía Vergara makes single life look good.

The “Modern Family” alum, 51, who announced her split from Joe Manganiello earlier this month, stepped out in a skintight cheetah print dress and towering Christian Louboutin platform pumps Saturday.

She paired the midi dress, which featured long sleeves and a plunging neckline, with a black Chanel handbag.

Vergara’s tresses fell down her shoulders in loose waves as she joined a gal pal at the Bird Streets Club restaurant in West Hollywood around 7:30 p.m.

It marks one of the actress’ first public outings since she and Manganiello, 46, revealed they were calling it quits after seven years of marriage.

“We have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the couple told Page Six exclusively earlier this month.

“As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.”

A source also told us that the pair had been “growing apart for a while” and had chosen to take “some distance from each other to contemplate their future.”

The “True Blood” actor went on to file for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the breakdown of their marriage. He also hired high-powered celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser.

While the couple did not disclose the specific reasons behind their split, multiple sources claimed it was related to his desire to have children.

Vergara — who shares 31-year-old son Manolo with her ex-husband Joe Gonzalez — was previously involved in a years-long court battle over custody of two frozen embryos from her IVF treatments with former fiancé Nick Loeb.

It’s not clear where she stood stood on the topic of children when she and Manganiello got married in November 2015.

A friend of the actress also gave Page Six some insight into the state of their relationship, claiming that Manganiello was a “largely unsupportive partner.”

“Sofía was always there to take care of Joe, while his career was never what it was when they met. I think he’s been threatened by her success and joie de vivre,” the insider said.

The “Hot Pursuit” star recently celebrated her 51st birthday with an Italian getaway surrounded by a group of friends.

During the vacation, fans noticed hints of trouble in paradise, including that she was no longer wearing her ring and that Manganiello was not with her.

However, it was Manganiello’s birthday post for the actress that really got tongues wagging about the state of their union.

“¡¡¡Feliz Cumpleaños Sofía!!!” the “Magic Mike XXL” star captioned a blurry throwback picture of himself and Vergara, which many called “cold.”
