Sophia Bush Rescued Mandy Moore From a Major Wardrobe Mishap at the Emmys

Mandy Moore had a major wardrobe malfunction at the 2021 Emmy Awards, but thankfully, her pal Sophia Bush was there to save the day.

You might recall the This Is Us star's fiery red Carolina Herrera gown as one of the standout looks from last year's ceremony. The dress featured spaghetti straps and tulle fan ruffles, and Moore completed the fabulous look with a bold red shade of lipstick and matching heels. On Instagram, she shared pics of the outfit and wrote, “Lady in Red for The Emmys. Thanks for inviting us to the party again, @televisionacad!”

However, things took a rather awkward turn when she spotted her friend, Bush, and hurried to give her a hug as she headed backstage. She told People, "I was in this red dress with really thin spaghetti straps. Sweet Sophia Bush walked by to go backstage, and I jumped up to hug her, and a strap just popped."

Fortunately, none of this was caught on camera, and Bush got a seamstress to help her behind the scenes. Moore continued, "The next commercial break, I ran back there, and Sophia had told them, so they had red thread ready to go. Thank God for her!" 

The 37-year-old star made her red carpet appearance seven months after she welcomed her first child, Gus, with her husband Taylor Goldsmith. On Instagram, she broke the baby news with a photo of her newborn and wrote, "Gus is here. Our sweet boy, August Harrison Goldsmith. He was punctual and arrived right on his due date, much to the delight of his parents. We were prepared to fall in love in all sorts of brand new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined."

The proud mom has since shared several pics of her son on her feed. And while attending the Emmys, Moore even joked on her IG Story that her a double breast pump was her Emmy Night ‘MVP Accessory’.

Kudos to Sophia for coming to Mandy's rescue.
