You know how calm, cool and collected the stars look as they walk the red carpet? Appearances can be deceiving – especially when the unexpected happens right before the cameras go on!
Just minutes before Modern Family won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series – meaning that the whole cast would be taking the stage – Sofia Vergara suffered a major wardrobe malfunction. A zipper on her skin-tight teal beaded gown broke, threatening to show a little too much of her much-admired rear to millions of viewers.
Fortunately, a wardrobe mistress was on hand to perform emergency repair work. And just as fortunately, Sofia has a great sense of humor, so she shared pictures of the near-disaster with her Twitter and WhoSay followers. “Yes!!!! This happend 20 min before we won!!!! Jajajajja. I luv my life!!!”
Lots of other stars joined in the fun, sharing photos of themselves with family, friends and castmates, showing off their costumes and reacting to the events of the night. (Better luck next year, Heidi Klum.)
But we think the best picture of all came from Sofia’s castmate Julie Bowen – and it isn’t of her award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy! Be sure to check it out, along with the rest of the pics, after the jump!
