Sofia Vergara's red lace Vera Wang dress couldn't stand up to the pressure of Emmy night.

It ripped.

The actress was seen fussing with the lace on the left side of her gown as her "Modern Family" co-stars were taking questions from the media backstage. When she stepped back, she revealed a tear.

Vergara said someone stepped on her dress but it could be she jinxed herself.

Asked on the red carpet before the show what she was wearing, Vergara quipped that she had on underwear from the "Kmart collection."

"But," she added, "you can't see that unless you rip the dress."
