Sofia Vergara: I'll Know My Emmys Dress When I See It

Sofia Vergara is quite excited about Modern Family‘s 14 Emmy nominations — but she’s even more excited about choosing a gown for the occasion.

“I’m already doing fittings,” she tells PEOPLE in the clip above. “I don’t know yet what I’m going to wear, but I’m going to try and find something special that when I see it, I know that’s it.”

There’s one key factor the actress is looking for in a gown: something that makes her “feel sexy.” If “you feel fantastic … maybe nobody else thinks that, but if you think that, that is the most important thing you need.”

She’ll also be accessorizing come Sept. 23, likely with some sparkling jewels — including that mystery ring. “For me, bigger the better,” she jokes. “I love big earrings … you can make any outfit that is not so interesting very interesting [with] just a pair of fantastic earrings.”

But her fall wardrobe is anything but uninteresting. “There’s still a lot of color out there. [And] I love leather,” she shares. “In my Kmart collection, I’ve added a lot of different color-coordinated outfits, and leather jackets that I think are going to be a great item in any girl’s closet.” Tell us: What do you think Vergara should wear for the Emmy Awards?
