Who said men can't have any fashion fun?
Jesse Tyler Ferguson showed off quite the memorable look with his lace jacket while on the 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet.
"I can't rub up against anything. I'll snag it," the Modern Family actor joked to Ryan Seacrest. "I was terrified when they said lace jacket. I was like, come on, that's pushing the gay thing a little too far."
But with a little bit of time, Ferguson warmed up to the fresh look, "But it's nice, right? It's subtle."
Before getting ready, the 37-year-old tried his best to get some important rest. When asked about his Twitter photograph that showed him resting his eyes, Ferguson had an explanation.
"I found them in an old gifting bag. They're like cooling gels," he told Seacrest.
"By the time Sunday night comes along, you're exhausted," he joking added. "Being on TV is so hard you guys."
Ferguson also got warmed up for the Emmys with costar Julie Bowen at Variety & Women in Film Pre-Emmy Party, where the duo signed yogurt lids from event sponsor Yoplait Greek to benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Something that isn't too tiring, however, is life as a newlywed. Just a few short months after his New York City summer wedding to Justin Mikita, Ferguson couldn't stop praising his officiator's, Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner, wise words at the ceremony.
"He wrote the most beautiful [message], it was just so simple and beautiful," Ferguson recalled. "We were literally like…‘we really like you, let's get married.' We felt very fortunate to have him there."
