As predicted, Sofia Vergara looked stunning at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night, but slinking down the red carpet in that sexy Zuhair Murad dress wasn’t as effortless as it seemed.

Late Sunday, the Modern Family actress Tweeted a (slightly not safe for work) image of the back of her dress, her zipper broken and her, ahem, ample curves exposed. (Click here to see the shot.)

“Yes!!!! This happend [sic] 20 min before we won!!!! Jajajajja. I luv my life!!!!”

The problem was fixed before the star hit the stage; she stayed in the beaded teal gown for the rest of the evening, and while celebrating with her castmates at an after-party. And we’re guessing no one really minded that view …

justsayin@hotmail.com on

Nylongirl35 on

There is always one idiot this happens to.

weezer on

She has the most amazing body, she would look good in a garbage bag!!

cracklingrosey@msn.com on

I agree with Nylongirl. I just ‘love’ how she had to announce that one. And like Justsaying said, that is the story?

Kim on

Oh get a sense of humor people..she obviously has one.

Linden Pike on

Anything to get them talking about u. Good news, bad news, there is no bad press.

junita on

what do u mean malfunction… its supposed to function that way how else do u get to b in the spotlight??

ME! on

Ugh, cant stand this woman

xCLMx on

Ever since Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction”, it seem to happen all the time now. How much more attention do you celebs need???

Michael Jackson on

Nice “assets”

Marin on

I think this is a little more than slightly NSFW. However, Sofia looked gorgeous last night and I loved her gown!

bibi on

I am sick of this annoying woman.


she is stunning..

Rosewillow on

haha!! I think that’s what happens when you put 20 pounds of potatoes in a 10 pound sack! ;-)

Noodles on

I hate the comment “i love my life” I am assuming that was said with sarcasm since it happened 20 min before she went on…. she’s at the emmys receiving an award for a show that pays her well… if that’s the WORST thing that happens to her in her life, it hardly serves the sarcastic remark “i love my life”. >.>

Lillith on

What that dress probably cost and the zipper broke? (I know I know she probably didn’t pay for it) Zuhair Murwhatever needs to get better zippers. But the dress is gorgeous and she looks gorgeous in it.

Samantha on

Love the gown. Note to dress designer/manufacturer: user higher quality zippers next time. LOL

Don on

Good thing shes a Democrat or it would not have made the news

J on

I’m amazed that she’s wearing nothing but a thong under there. No Spanks needed. Bravo, Latina Mermaid.

sunny on

love the dress

Julianna Bernadette on

Cannot stand her and she is not beatiful either

Gina on

Well, at least she took it in stride..

guest on

And we really need to know this because….

l b j on

Sofia was absolutley gorgeous in that gown!

Tina on

Embarrassing. At least she has a good-looking butt, though.

Tiffany on

Check out last night’s best dressed list at ineedmyfix [dot] calm

Ally on

I thought she looked stunning! Good for her for laughing of the zipper problem :)

sally on

That’s usually what happens when you stick a body into a too small dress!

maryhelenc on

I’m sure she’s a perfectly fine actress or whatever, but does every award show have to include a tweet of what she fell out of, or her zipper “broke” and her butt hangs out, etc? I think she does these things on purpose to get attention, after all, this is what, the fourth award show where she’s had a “slip”? Maybe she should buy a dress that actually fits?

Puckersbabe on

Whew! Crack a lackin’!!! Haha, but seriously, she is gorgeous and so was the dress! Good save!

Acnaib on

Hahaha that’s funny !! I love Sofia Vergara! She has a very positive vibe!

Jenny on

At least she wore underware! Thats better than most

HappyAsALark on

and she felt compelled to tweet this why???

Jenny! on

She’s so beautiful and funny, and 40! Damn, hope i’m as lucky one day

LuluAZ on

She’s so adorable!

TinTexas on

I saw the picture of her ‘er crack . . .lol . I wouldn’t have been embarrassed if my butt looked that good . . . lol YOU GO GIRL !

Leslee on

It took me a moment to figure out what I was looking at.

angel on

she is beutiful…she always has a sense of humor…she is colombian… what else can you ask for. only haters, can post bad comments about her.
Anything she wears looks awesome, looking for fame?? do a search on her life she’s been there , done that before modern family. thumbs up sofi!!!! we love you.

Kiely on

Couldnt agree more with some of the comments i have read.. malfunction huh!?! lol nope cant say i believe that for the life of me. there is no way that was not planned.. and lets say by some miraculous chance it did happen on its own! as a Forty Something year old woman (who apprently will do anything to be 18 and sexting) you post that on twitter with your thong and ass hanging out cuz u used instagram and got rid of any dimple or cellulite. its just sad that people have to try this hard when on their own theyre beautiful. Mid Life Crisis At Its Best!

mrsmass on

so she was so embarrassed that her butt was hanging out that she put a jacket around her wait and then tweeted a picture of her almost bare butt? right.

mona on

she looks beautiful:)

mona on

she looks pretty

Jenny on

She’s SO desperate for attention. How pathetic.

It makes me sick that undeserving, talentless floozies like her make millions of dollars each year while people who are the definition of true beauty (e.g., people who have substance) are unrecognized.

... on

so overrated

SayWhat on

Phrases that need to be retired forever : wardrobe malfunction,baby bump,baby,baby mama,baby daddy. Thank you. That is all.

avec femme on

Hi there, just changed into aware of your weblog thru Google, and located that it’s really informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels. I’ll appreciate in case you continue this in future. Lots of folks will likely be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

Ronnzy on

Wow…some real haters on here. She’s georgeous, has great comedic timing (“untalented?” REALLY?), and has a good sense of humor. Maybe it was planned; who cares? It’s just entertainment, folks. Get a grip.

terese on

This is to all of the people that are have nothing better to do than hate, Sofia is a very funny, talented, and beautiful woman, I for one am very jelous of her. I’m in my forties I wish i looked have as good as she does. Good for her!!!!
She is comfortable in her own skin, she is what i think we as women should be, not ashamed of who we are but embrase it. Young girls should have self esteem. She has a little more than most but we are all different, have different personallities,and that is what makes us special. Luv her she is so down to earth and don’t hate, she is beautiful.

Megan on

That is probably the prettiest dress I’ve ever seen.


The Crack seen around the world WOW ! is she hot


And some dam nice ASSets , NICE Sofia ! keep up the good work :)
