Sofía Vergara's Martha Stewart Weddings cover was a hot topic of conversation at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards last night. Ryan Seacrest caught up with the brunette bombshell and bride-to-be in an interview for during E!'s Live From the Red Carpet. At the mention of the impending Vergara-Manganiello nuptials in November, Seacrest asked Sofía to comment on an Instagram photo she had shared of her husband-to-be flipping through our Fall Style issue, in which Sofía shared her wedding plans with us.


"Speaking of the wedding," said the host, "can we pull up this photo we have of Joe looking at a little magazine here—Martha Stewart's wedding magazine—with a cigar in his mouth? Is he reading up on wedding tips there? What's going on?"


"He was making fun of me," she explained. "It says 'Sofía in Love.' He wanted to see what I had to say. He's like, 'Give me that magazine I have to see if you're talking good about me!'"


"Did he approve?" Seacrest asked. 


"Yes, he loved it. Look at his face of satisfaction!" she laughed.

The Magic Mike actor was backstage getting a bite to eat at the time, so he was unable to comment himself, but we're more than happy to take his bride's word for it. After all, the two have been on the same page for much of the wedding planning, with Joe enthusiastically approving all of Sofía's decisions (good man!). "He was like, 'I love everything, do whatever you want,' which is amazing," Sofía told us.


Modern Family was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, and though the show lost to Veep, the A-list actress and brainy businesswoman looked every bit the winner in a formfitting, Champagne-hued St. John mermaid gown (her first time wearing the designer!), Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and, naturally, Sofía Vergara perfume, which she described as "romantic and sexy at the end of the night." This choice comes as no surprise to us—Sofía told us she even plans to wear the fragrance for her wedding, "because Joe loves it!" Aww!
