We get it. Playing Modern Family's most exhausted mom must get old, especially when your TV teenagers get to have all the fashion fun. That must be what inspired Julie Bowen to grab her old Deb Ball gown out of storage for this year's Emmy Awards. Look who looks 16-years-old now!
Um, this adult woman...
As much as we're in awe of the intricacies in this Zac Posen special, they're a bit too southern-belle-hits-the-big-city for our tastes. We feel like we've seen the pale, pink fabric and intense skirt ruffles on a society girl stepping out at the Waldorf Astoria.
Yes, "Claire Dunphy" wears the design beautifully, but there's a time and a place and an age for this attire. In our opinion, none of them are a fit.
