Sofia Vergara was happy to show some skin at the Emmys last night – her teal Zuhair Murad mermaid dress featured sexy cut-outs in the front and back – but she revealed a little more than she planned.
Twenty minutes before the actress and her Modern Family co-stars took the stage to accept the award for Outstanding Comedy Series on Sunday, the zipper on her gown broke, leaving her posterior exposed. The 40-year-old Colombia native reacted quickly by wrapping her fiancé Nick Loeb’s tuxedo jacket around her waist and running backstage to get emergency repairs from her style team.
How the story differs from most A-list wardrobe malfunctions: Vergara later posted a photo of the very revealing incident on WhoSay and tweeted a link to her 2.7 million Twitter followers. The not-safe-for-work photo (which you can see here) showed a portion of Vergara’s exposed rear as well as her underwear. A photo below showed a woman actually stitching up the back of the dress.
