Sarah Hyland In Marchesa - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

‘Vampire Academy’ starlet Sarah Hyland took a dramatic turn on the red carpet, joining co-star Zoey Deutch at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Sarah sent some mixed messages in her Marchesa Spring 2013 red-and-gold tulle high-low gown—I was picking up an extravagant India-inspired flavour, some medieval princess edge and a dash of Wonder Woman.

Strappy black Casadei sandals seemed out of place when they could have so easily been gold to go with that glittery metallic Marchesa clutch.

Renaissance super-girl aside, I found this look to be overwhelming for the young actress. Short of ripping off those heavy layers, she could’ve had so much more lighthearted fun at MTV’s big night.
