Sarah Hyland in Felder Felder at the “Lovelace” Premiere

Posted on August 07, 2013

When we say Sarah is serving up “RuPaul’s Drag Race realness,” we don’t meant that she’s drag-fabulous and fierce…


Sarah Hyland attends the premiere of “Lovelace” in Hollywood, California in a Felder Felder dress.

Felder Felder Spring 2013 Collection

… we mean she’s wearing a broke-ass dress that looks like it was hastily put together by a drag queen who doesn’t know how to sew. What is going on with that bodice? It looks like it was slashed open and then stapled back together. We realize little black dresses don’t always photograph well if they have a lot of detailing, but slashing it open like that was not the solution. It’s a shame, because the runway version is so much cuter.

Also: She’s got so much highlighting around her eyes that she looks like she has a Homer Simpson-esque five o’clock shadow. The top half of her face is bright pink and the bottom half is orange. There’s a makeup queen with a pink slip in his very near future.

    Are you sure that’s not a knock-off? It looks straight-up home-sewn.

  • No dress should have a gaping maw.

    • decormaven

      Oh goodness. I’m dying here!!

    • dalgirl

      “gaping maw”- I DIE

    • She is way too baby-faced to show that much chest.

  • AlisonS

    I wonder if this is really the back. She wore it like this to be “edgy” with her side tits….

    • 3boysful

      I owuld bet real money it is. Doesn’t work here, honey.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Ahhh, there you go! Our Bitter Kitten Fashion Detective Squad is on the case!

    • filmcricket

      My exact thought, she’s wearing it backwards.

    • I thought that, too!

    • barbarienne

      I thought that too, but then the skirt would fall in a reverse-mullet, which the runway version doesn’t. Also, I just icked myself out by envisioning a reverse-mullet skirt.

    • drdarke

      Maybe she just didn’t know what way to put it on, and put it on backwards, @disqus_ENDnjpScsz:disqus .

      Who is this woman? She looks – sad, and like she’d rather be anyplace else but there.

      • demidaemon

        She plays the oldest daughter of the “regular” family on Modern Family. I have no idea what she is doing at the premiere of this biopic.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      That’s what it looks like to me, too. And it’s gaping, so you can tell there was never *supposed* to be room for boobs where that “front” slit is.

    • Louise Bryan

      That was my take. Definitely looks like she put the dress on backwards. I just don’t get that, since the proportions of the bodice are different back and front. It just looks weird.

      • marlie

        Some stylist probably told her that it was a good idea, and that it would be OK since she’s relatively small-chested.They were wrong.

  • Sara

    Her roots situation is tragic.

  • epenthesis

    The extra skin and bad styling take it into lingerie territory.

  • mlle

    Maybe she thought that the gaping keyhole would mark her more clearly as an adult. She’s 22!

    • marlie

      Wow. I didn’t realize that. I thought for sure that she was still in the under-18 range.

  • hughman

    I wondered if she put it on backwards.

    • Tess Danesi

      Same thing I thought. If not, it surely looks that way and that is never a good look.

    • Kimbolina

      I was thinking the same thing. It would at least make a little more sense as a dress.

  • CommentsByKatie

    She’s totally destroyed the fit of the bodice, too; see all of the crinkling up by the neck? Ugh. This is an abominatinon. Well spotted, uncles. Wouldn’t it have been easier to add interest to the dress with a striking necklace or something?

  • Oh honey, “Zelda Rubinstein realness” is just not what you want popping into people’s heads upon seeing you.

    • Tamara Hogan

      I love you people. Just love.

  • Miss wks

    She’s too young to be sporting a vagina slit dress….

    • JasmineAM

      Actually, she’s 23. She has a kidney disorder that fudged with her aging.

      • Miss wks

        23 is too young to be sporting a vagina slit dress.

  • seras

    Maybe Coco did her makeup?

  • alyce1213

    In an effort to make her look more adult, this dress was ruined. The runway version suits her and she should have just gone with it as is.

  • Lanx

    She always looks like a Chuckie doll in the head area. Dull outfit.

  • Cz

    Funereal. Like, Wednesday Adams tries to get smexy… and fails.

  • Valdri8

    Perhaps the runway model ate that hole in the dress to muster enough strength to be able to push through the turnstile in the subway. WTF? – I protest the dress on the basis of the starved runway model alone.

  • decormaven

    Who is running the PR team for this poledance? Blind monkeys? Get it together and tell the stars to wear something that will photograph well against the logo backdrop. While I’m thankful I can’t see the details of this particular look, it is irritating that we are missing style highlights – they are not reading against this black backdrop.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    That make up – that white washed area around the eyes – that’s not getting to be a “thing” is it? One of those mini-trends? or something? I saw the same thing happening with Sharon Stone on a post the other day and even a bit on Tika Sumpter – like the foundation they use around the whole entire eye area is lighter….

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Look at Sharon Stone in the Aug 6 post and tell me that’s not the same Make Up Queen at work! I mean outta work…

    • MilaXX

      It’s not uncommon. The key is to keep it subtle, no more than 1 or 2 shades difference. The problem here is she is ovr made up. The highlighting, the blush, the lips; are all clashing and fighting for attention. Honestly if I ws her Nya, I’d do a subtle face, neutral lip with sift browns on her eyes.

    • filmcricket

      It’s to brighten the eyes, it’s a pretty common technique. But yeah, it needs to be subtler, and frankly, on a fetus such as this one with such big eyes already, it’s totally unnecessary.

    • demidaemon

      I think someone’s been hiring Shangela and/or Phi Phi O’Hara as a make-up artist. It can really be the only explanation.

    • AmandaG

      I think her make up artist was trying (unsuccessfully) to camouflage her round cheeks and try and give an illusion of cheekbones (big cheek girl here). But I agree with MilaXX, it should’ve been more subtle.

  • Ediths_Head

    When your peel-n-stick bra shows through the dress that you have split and stapled, don’t wear it. Just like grandma always said.

  • Guest

    … could she be wearing it backwards?

  • MilaXX

    Is she wearing the dess backwards & unzipped? I think the same rules for makeup for Amanda Seyfried apply to her. She always looks like a porcelain doll and not in a good way.

  • Airkisses

    Elvira: The Younger Years

  • mjude

    oh dear the make up!

  • amber.

    “she’s wearing a broke-ass dress.” GOODNIIIIIIIGGGGGHHHHHHTTTTTT

  • hellkell

    Oh, honey, NO.

    Should have kept the runway version.

  • Clydette Wantland

    Maybe it’s on backwards?

  • pookiesmom

    She looks like an evil baby in this outfit/makeup. Which makes the chest vagina all the more disturbing.

  • Rand Ortega


  • bertkeeter

    She has more tape that dress opening than Joan Rivers uses to hold her face in place!

  • quiltrx

    How can such a cute and lively (though it could do with a bit lower neckline) runway version be turned into this sad thing?
    Besides how droopy it looks in general–this whole bodice situation looks like a rip and a car sew-up session. Or, as some suggested, it’s on backwards.
    And The Human Bratz Doll doesn’t even look like herself–she usually at least looks fresh. She looks like trash here.

  • Trisha26

    I think she’s wearing the dress backwards – the slit was originally in the back. And she’s so tiny (5’2″), it’s way too long on her losing the playfulness of the original.

  • Imasewsure

    She’s such a strange looking girl/woman…. not necessarily in a bad way (except here of course). She’s really going to need the right stylist to transition properly from Kewpie to Grown Up!

  • Jeanne leCube

    The dress is on backwards. You can tell by the way the skirt is gathered and longer in front. The skirt is supposed to be a little bit longer and more “gathered” in the back.

    • mhleta

      That was my first thought, too.

  • jmorino08

    Even she doesn’t look thrilled with herself. Poor thing.

  • Anniebet

    Kinda bizarre.

    Baby faced celebs (this one, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez) have a strike against them to begin with, IMO. Just imagine them in 15 years – mid thirties – still looking 15.

    • Tânia

      for me Sarah looks like she’s three, it’s kind of disturbing

      • Anniebet

        A little shorter and flat chested, she could be one of the mommy’s little darlings on Toddlers and Tiaras – not that I’d ever admit to watching it, ever… never. Actually, only once. Anyway, that’s what she reminds me of most.

  • boweryboy

    Why would she be allowed to do that to that dress? How is that possible? Does it mean she owns it now?

  • RuthGo

    All the makeup and the huge opening in the front ironically make her look like a 13 year old trying to look all grown up.

  • e jerry powell

    I’ll give her this much: get a look at that neck. Nothing to complain about with that. BUT ONLY THAT.

  • Joey Melliza

    Mortricia’s Slutty Attention Seeking Slut Maid

  • largishbearishAtlish

    oh god! I just love love love the “oh god, I am soooooo stoned I have no idea what planet I am on” face! does she practice that in front of the mirror? its PRICELESS! I think that she go in the T’lo house of shame….too dang funny!
    wait…that’s not intentional? no kidding? really?
    oh dear.
    (and as always, agree with Saint T’lo about the dress and horrifically funny make-up)

  • sweetlilvoice

    She is so pretty and talented, this is a shame. I hope she hires some new gays (or just starts reading this blog!).

  • mhleta

    Ooof. This is so full of rookie mistakes, I have to assume she had as a style adviser some “friend” who secretly hates her.

  • pop_top

    Where did that opening come from?????????

  • marlie

    She looks like a porcelain doll with (poorly) painted-on makeup. The dramatic, sexy makeup and dress just aren’t going to work for someone with SUCH a babyface.

  • Matthew Woodward

    Child Bride.

  • librarygrrl64

    It looks like she’s wearing the dress backwards.
