Sofia Vergara is our Emmy party MVP (in that pesky dress)
Hey, Sofia Vergara, don’t worry about Julie Bowen taking home the Emmy Award for supporting actress in a comedy.
We’ve got something better for you: You’re the Ministry of Gossip’s most valuable player, in the category of tearing up Emmy after-parties.
Vergara, part of this year’s comedy series victor “Modern Family,” was unstoppable after Sunday night’s Jimmy Kimmel-hosted telecast. Kicking off at the Governors Ball, Vergara rolled deep with friends, family and fiancee Nick Loeb to toast her show’s third consecutive win.
From there, Fox’s official after-party at downtown L.A.'s Soleto Trattoria awaited, as did some presumably necessary bubbly — as Sofia had had dress issues.
Vergara’s mermaid-inspired Zuhair Murad gown split open 20 minutes before “Modern Family” won, and the actress tweeted the damage: The busted zipper was over her backside.
Did she cry? Throw a Champagne glass at stylist’s assistant? Not our MVP. She uploaded an NSFW snap of her exposed rear and went back to partying.
Following HBO, Sofia popped over to the Jimmy Kimmel’s Soho House bash for a nightcap. As she entered with her crew, DJ Samantha Ronson was packing up her equipment.
But wait! Not on Vergara’s watch!
She pleaded for one more song and, MVP style, Ronson obliged.
