Miss Sarah has traditionally had troubles dressing herself in a grownup and sophisticated manner because she’s tiny and her features are doll-like. Too sexy and people squirm a little, too twee and she literally looks like a doll.
We think this is one of her better, if not best attempts:
“Modern Family” Sarah Hyland attends the premiere of “Cinderella” at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California in a Naeem Khan charcoal crystal-beaded silk gazar cocktail dress accessorized with Brian Atwood sandals and a ring by EFFY Jewelry.
It’s not perfect. The hem is all kinds of wonky and both it and the waist sit too low, but we suppose that’s to be expected with someone her size trying to make a sample size (fit for a model ten inches taller than her) work.
Anyway, we like the sparkly sophistication, which hits her sweet spot exactly between whimsical and chic. The hair and makeup look pretty but the competing silver of the shoe kinda detracts.
