When the nominees for the 65th Primetime Emmys were announced yesterday morning, the awards season fashion frenzy officially began.
Reacting to news of their respective nominations, Sofia Vergara, Bill Hader, Lena Dunham, and more stars also commented on finding the perfect red carpet ensemble to wear on the big night.

Informed of her fourth Emmy nod, Sofia Vergara replied; “I better not finish this cheesecake then.” The Modern Family star is undoubtedly hoping to avoid another wardrobe malfunction like the one she suffered at the 2012 Emmys when the back of her Zuhair Murad gown split open during the ceremony.
Bill Hader scored his second acting nomination for playing a host of characters on Saturday Night Live. What would Stefon – Weekend Update’s hottest city correspondent for those not in the know – want him to wear to the ceremony? “He’d probably want me to wear, just, trash. He’d just want me to put a bunch of trash on my body and walk down the carpet,” Hader told Vulture.com.
Lena Dunham already has plans to stalk Kerry Washington at the Emmys, but when it comes to picking an outfit, the Girls creator is doing her best to exercise some restraint. ”I have a lot of fantasies about what I’m going to wear that don’t correspond to reality because the people in my life will stop me from doing it – like the rabbit ears I’d like to wear to the Emmys,” Dunham told The Hollywood Reporter. “I really love fashion, but I have not totally mastered what red carpet fashion means.”
“I can’t begin to express how shocked I am to be nominated with such an impressive group of women,” The Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik said of her nomination for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. “Wow. Now I have to find a dress.”
Speaking to EW about her first Emmy nomination, Emilia Clarke said that getting to wear a designer dress is the icing on the cake. “I’m very fortunate to have an incredible stylist and publicist, who take care of me, so I have no doubt that whatever we come up with will be very cool. Any opportunity to get into fashion and find a beautiful dress, I’m very definitely excited about that,” said the Game of Thrones star.
Asked via Twitter what she’s going to wear, Morena Baccarin tweeted; “That’s the million dollar question!” Considering that she’s pregnant with her first child, whatever the Homeland star choses, “It will need to be an extra large at that point!”
