Dressed to the nines for a star-studded soirée down the red carpet, more than a dozen celebrity icons you both know and love showed up for the Los Angeles premiere of "Machete Kills" on Wednesday night (October 2).

The Colombian “Modern Family” temptress Sofia Vergara, playing the movie’s own Madame Desdemona, swaggered down the runway with pomp and purpose in a glittery black dress.

Also on hand promoting the action flick were a handful of the movie’s leads, including "What Women Want" stud Mel Gibson, Machete Cortez himself, otherwise known as Danny Trejo, and Alexa Vega. Other celebs in attendance as spectators included Paris Hilton and KISS’s very own Gene Simmons.

Slated to hit theaters in just a few short days on October 11, “Machete Kills” follows Machete Cortez (Trejo) as the U.S. government recruits him to cut a bloody swath across Mexico in order to take down an arms dealer who looks to launch a weapon into space.
