Miley Cyrus may be quite the trendsetter, what with twerking and rocking pasties, but Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss has a message to people thinking that Miley led the way on the short, blonde hairdo: she cut first!

"I did it and then Miley Cyrus did it like, literally a week late. And obviously she is way more famous than I am so then everyone was like, 'It's the Miley Cyrus!'" Moss told Giuliana Rancic on the Emmys red carpet. "And I was like, 'no, I didn't copy her!'"

And not only did Moss, who stunned in an Andrew Gn dress and vintage Neil Lane jewelry, not copy Miley's haircut, but she has no desire to follow in her dancing footsteps. Read: she will not be twerking at any of the after parties.

"I don't even know what that is," she insisted. "I don't know what this thing is. People keep saying this to me and I don't know what it is!"

Moss, who is a double nominee tonight for Top of the Lake and Mad Men, also revealed that she still finds her success "shocking."

"I haven't gotten used to it. I don't know if anyone is going to believe me on that, but it really is something I can't get used to," she said. "I'm still surprised."

Finally, for someone who is both chic and sophisticated, it was kind of awesome to hear that her guilty pleasure is watching the Real Housewives series.

"I love it. I love it so much," she gushed. So Giuliana had to know: who would she be more nervous to meet on the red carpet, Matt Damon or  RHONJ star Teresa Giudice?

"That's a tough one. I would probably pick Theresa, for different reasons," she laughed. "I love Caroline Manzo! I love her!"
