Julie Bowen suited up for the Screen Actors Guild Awards in L.A. on Sunday.

"Is it dicey?" the Modern Family star asked E!'s Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet. Bowen's black pantsuit by Catherine Malandrino featured a plunging neckline and low back.

"I did try on dresses, but I actually tried this on for the Emmys and I've been wanting to wear it," she said. "Screw it, I don't think I look disrespectful."
