Sofia Vergara is currently on a press tour to promote her clothing line so of course everyone’s like ‘Your clothes explode! I’m not paying good weed money for that.’ Asked to explain why her butt fell out of her Zuhair Murad gown 20 minutes before the Modern Family cast went onstage to accept the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, Vergara told reporters: ‘The picture was taken by my boyfriend [Nick Loeb] to tell me how bad [the split] was, because I wouldn’t understand how bad it was and I kept walking all over the event. So he was like, ‘You have to stop! Let me show you what is going on in the back [of your dress].’ I almost had a heart attack. And then I wanted to get it fixed very fast because I wanted to be part of the celebration of receiving [Modern Family's outstanding comedy series] Emmy on stage. Two women… sewed me back in without even taking the dress off because we didn’t have enough time.’
She later told Katie Couric while on Katie: ‘They’re very delicate those dresses… now I know where it came from… where it started ripping. I had thought it was something small. I never thought it would open the whole thing. I sat through a whole segment. I wanted to fix it or do something because I had a feeling we were going to win. I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to go up there. I mean, how many times in my life am I going to have? I’ve already had three times but who knows how many more times I’m going to be able to experience going up there with my whole cast.’ She continued: ‘I’m very proud of my body and the way I look. I’d be ungrateful to be saying, ‘Oh, I’m so mad to people just look at me and see my pretty face.’ I thank god for what he has given me and I take advantage of it.’ Photos below from Thursday’s press tour of New York.
