‘Modern Family’ star Sofía Vergara didn’t win an Emmy herself, but the show took 5 Emmys, including ‘Best Comedy Series’. The Colombian beauty did win on the red carpet wrapped in a spectacular red dress created by Vera Wang.
Ryan Seacrest could barely keep himself collected in the presence of the stunning Vergara and her enormous ‘Colombian jewels’; “The most exciting part of my outfit is my Colombian jewels,” she told Seacrest in her ultra-charming accent, while the E! host struggled with keeping his gaze off Vergara’s curves. “Everything that comes from Colombia is huge.” Of course she was talking about the Lorraine Schwartz emerald chandelier earrings she was wearing not her other jewels.
Vergara’s native Colombia is home to some of the world’s rarest emeralds. The Incas and Aztecs of Latin America, considered the green stones as holy gemstones.
In the comedy awards, Modern Family won five awards; it was named TV’s outstanding comedy series for a second straight year, won Emmys for its writing, directing and supporting actors Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen also won.
