Here comes… Sofia! Actress Sofia Vergara wasn’t exactly a bride at the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 17, but she sure went the bridal route on the red carpet.

The Modern Family star looked resplendent at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in a strapless white Mark Zunino gown. Vergara’s gown selection—a strapless, figure-flattering piece with a mermaid hem—was teased by the designer leading up to the show.

“Here’s our final gown for the Emmy Awards!” Zunino tweeted Sunday morning alongside a sketch of Vergara’s look. “Watch the Emmys today to see who will be wearing all of our gowns! #markzunino#emmys.”

Vergara praised Zunino’s work while chatting with E! News outside of the Microsoft Theater. “He makes dresses that are perfect for voluptuous women,” she said.

Joining the leading lady at the star-studded affair was her handsome, 25-year-old son Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara. Vergara’s husband Joe Manganiello couldn’t make it due to another work commitment on the East Coast.

“It’s amazing,” Manolo told ET of joining his mom at the Emmys. “She invites me when Joe’s busy, so…”

“[Joe’s] shooting a movie in New York,” Vergara chimed in. “So I’m like, “‘Manolo, you wanna come?'”
