Modern Family star Sofia Vergara suffered a wardrobe malfunction just 20 minutes before her hit TV show won Emmy Award for Outstanding Commedy .
Sofia Vergara, 40, shared pictures of her fashion mishap on her Twitter page, showing the busted back zip of her Zuhair Murad teal cut-out gown.
The picture showed Sofia Vergara’s pert derriere fully visible as the rear of the dress failed to contain her Latin curves.
Sofia Vergara tweeted the shot along with the caption: “Yes!!!! This happend 20 min before we won!!!! Jajajajja. I luv my life!!!!”
The actress later thanked her wardrobe team for helping fix the malfunction before she headed onto the stage to collect the Outstanding Comedy for Modern Family for the third consecutive year.
Sofia Vergara wrote: “20 min Modern Family won!! Dress malfuncion !!! Thank you emergency team!!”
She had earlier looked stunning as she posed on the red carpet in the aquamarine sequinned outfit, which hugged her figure and highlighted her tiny waist.
The stunning actress teamed the outfit, which featured a cut-out back panel, with silver jewellery and left her brown hair loose in waves around her shoulders.
And following Modern Family’s victories at the ceremony – it also took home Outstanding Supporting Comedy Actor for Eric Stonestreet,
Julie Bowen for Supporting Actress in a Comedy and Outstanding Comedy Director award for Steven Levitan – Sofia Vergara marked the show’s success at the FOX Broadcasting Company, Twentieth Century FOX Television and FX 2012 Post Emmy party at Soleto Trattoria in LA.
The actress also ensured she kept her fans updated with her movements at the party, regularly tweeting pictures from inside the event.
Sofia Vergara, who lost out on the Supporting Actress award to co-star Julie Bowen, certainly appeared to be letting her hair down at the event, even indulging in a spot of crowd surfing as the free-flowing alcohol took hold.
She tweeted a picture of herself crowd surfing with the caption: “This is how the Colombians partyyy at the Emmys!!”
Sofia Vergara had earlier written: “I party like a mermaid!” alongside a picture of herself cuddling up to fiancé Nick Loeb.
The actress even invited 19 family members to enjoy the festivities alongside her at the afterparty.
Sofia Vergara told Extra TV: “I brought a lot of people from my family. They wanted to come here with me. There are 19 people, and they love coming here with me, so we have a great time.”
