Sofia Vergara & wax figure

Sofia Vergara revealed two wax figures at Madame Tussauds in Times Square in New York City on Tuesday after a slight mishap delayed the event.

A museum spokesperson told the crowd there was a "technical issue," which resulted in the unveiling starting one hour late.

According to the NY Daily News, the mannequin wearing the Marchesa dress busted open at the seams, showing a little too much. But the "Modern Family" actress saved the day by sewing the dress back together herself.

The problem? The sculpture's measurements are exactly like Vergara's - very curvy on top, causing the figure to "bust" out of its gown.

Vergara stars in "The Smurfs 2" later this summer and "Machete Kills," which hits theaters in September.
