If there's one thing we know for sure about Sofia Vergara's style, it's that the woman looks good in a dress.

And after tying the knot back in 2015 in a show-stopping, detachable skirted Zuhair Murad gown, we are also well aware that the woman looks incredible in a wedding dress.

When she tied the knot with husband Joe Manganiello two years ago, Vergara delivered the 'wow' factor in spades in her stunning Zuhair Murad detachable-skirted bridal gown which boasted 350 crystals, 11 pounds of sequins, 6.6 pounds of pearls and took 32 people 1,657 hours to complete.

“She’s very much in control of her image," Murad said to Vogue at the time. "She knows how to dress for her figure, choosing the designs that enhance her hourglass shape and show her marvelous curves.”

So when the Modern Family star rocked up to the 2017 Emmy's in a figure-hugging mermaid style Mark Zunino gown with a draped silk organza bodice and deep sweetheart neckline, she gave everyone bridal goals yet again, offering a fresh take on the more informal, boho style gowns currently favoured by bridal bloggers.

While the skin-skimming mermaid style isn't for everyone, it's a fabulous style for curvy girls who want to feel sexy yet sophisticated on their wedding day, and happily there are several brilliant bridal designers on the Irish market who offer some gorgeous styles which are strikingly similar to Sofia's Zunino.

Mori Lee by Madeline Gardener designs some very similar styles at a good price point. Her mermaid silhouettes come in strapless, off-the-shoulder and with delicate lace capped sleeves. Most of her designs include some intricate embellishments (elaborate beaded details being a signature of hers) and include some more modern trends, while retaining their timeless feel. Mori Lee is available from My Fair Lady in Tullamore, Co. Offaly.

For a more modern take on the mermaid, look to the Mikaella by Paloma Blanca line which offers a few more unusual, contemporary designs and brings the silhouette bang up to date. Long lace sleeves and bodices with visable boning add something a little different to what feels like a somewhat traditional silhouette, and gives a fresh look to princess-like tulle styles. Mikaella is available from several bridal stockists around the country, visit mikaellabridal.com.
