“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?
