As expected, Tina Fey is embracing her Emmy Awards wardrobe malfunction.

Millions watching Sunday's broadcast saw the now-infamous Tina Fey nipple slip, as her blue Narciso Rodriguez dress revealed just a little too much.

You didn't expect her to care, did you? Or to pass up a chance to mock it?

In the SNL promo below, she shows that she knows how to take a joke, and that she's deserving of the Emmys' Best Comedy Writing trophy. Take a look:

It's unclear if we'll actually see Tina Fey topless during her upcoming hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, but the gag certainly played well in the promo.

Tina Fey suffered a brief but obvious nipple slip at the 2013 Emmy Awards, sparking an onslaught of Twitter commentary at the acclaimed actress' expense.

If you blinked, or aren't an eagle-eyed viewer whose goal in life is to see celebrity nipples on screen, you probably missed the wardrobe malfunction.

But it happened. Oh, did it ever.

Some might even say it was one of the more exciting or at least interesting things that happened during a broadcast derided by critics as bland.

In any case, when the comedian took the stage with Tracey Wigfield to accept their award for Best Comedy Writing, she flashed more than her trophy.

At least she of all people can take a joke. See the Tina Fey nipple slip and some of the notable reactions to this unexpected viral event after the jump:

Lena Dunham did not walk away with any trophies at the 2013 Emmy Awards on Sunday.

No official ones, that is. Yet the sister of this Girls star believes her sibling may very well have earned the title of Worst Dressed Celebrity at the event.

Responding to Dunham's bright teal Prada gown - which included an orange flower print - Grace Dunham said "it's like the Delia's catalogue made a red carpet dress."

That opinion was shared via Twitter by Grace's famous relative. Take a look.

Dunham clearly took a risk in not dressing joining the show's pink parade, but it was a noble risk according to one respected source.

Vogue listed this this edgy outfit among its most stylish.

Cycle through the Best and Worst Dressed Emmy stars from Sunday's show now and sound off: What do you think of Lena Dunham's gown?

Is Kerry Washington pregnant? The Scandal star's flowing Emmys dress triggered the obligatory speculation on Twitter, but is it more than just a rumor?

Kerry's Marchesa gown and its empire waist hid her usually tiny figure, setting off a frenzy of “is she or isn’t she pregnant?” from Scandal fans on Twitter.

Rumors also circulated when Kerry married Nnamdi Asomugha in a private wedding in June and - some believe anyway - started hiding her figure.

Kerry’s petite body is normally shown in sexy, curve-hugging dresses, so if she opts for a looser, tummy-hiding style, it marks a change of style.

The gown also has a strappy detail over a gold bralette that emphasizes a fuller bustline than Kerry usually has. Perfect to disguise a baby bump.

Grey's Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo wasn't a fan of this year's Emmy Awards.

A big reason for that? The telecast's lack of diversity, according to the star.

Ellen and Chris Pic

"I didn't see any diversity in the Emmys at all. The Emmys felt so dated to me," she said, adding specifically that "The dance number was embarrassing."

Did you see one person of color in that dance number?"

Grey's Anatomy is one of the more diverse shows on TV, which Pompeo, who is also in a biracial marriage (to Chris Ivery) says is one of her favorite things about it.

Claire Danes' Emmy dress, her surprising new hairstyle and her husband were all the subjects of great interest among viewers of the telecast last night.

She also made the list of Emmy winners for the second straight year. Ho hum.

  • Claire Danes Hair
  • Claire Danes at the Emmys
  • Claire Danes, Husband

The actress' short, apparently clipped bob was much shorter than fans are used to, even compared to her shoulder-length hair just one night earlier.

Fans and red carpet hosts alike were abuzz after the Homeland star seemingly went the way of Miley Cyrus, Lena Dunham and made this drastic charge.

The riddle was quickly solved, and the talents of celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler revealed. The bob was created as an illusion to elongate her neck.

So to speak. Using a combination of products and techniques, he managed to alter her look dramatically based on Danes' plunging Armani Prive gown.

Styled, parted, combed, pinned and styled again, Danes' look was complete. As for the star's husband? He's Hugh Dancy, a British actor (Hannibal).

What do you think of Claire Danes' Emmy look?

With apologies to the dresses worn by Anna Chlumsky and Kaley Cuoco, the star of the Emmys red carpet Sunday night was a subtler shade of pink.

And the television stars that selected it, of course.

Emmy Pink Dresses

Among the stars to rock the pink (or petal, shell, blush or rose, or whatever), was January Jones, going for a modern Grace Kelly look in a Givenchy.

How I Met Your Mother's Cobie Smulders looked great in J. Mendel, while Rose Byrne showed a little stomach in a nice Calvin Klein Collection design.

Modern Family's Julie Bowen went girly in a Zac Posen gown, while her little girl (on TV at least) Ariel Winter selected a baby pink Lorena Sarbu number.

Which of the five do you think looked best? Vote!
