Sarah Hyland In CH Carolina Herrera - 2013 Emmy Awards

I had high hopes for Sarah Hyland at tonight’s 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

After a young, fresh entrance at the BAFTA LA TV Tea Party, the ‘Modern Family’ starlet took a mature turn. She actually skipped any sign of Marchesa in favour of a custom CH Carolina Herrera design.

The plunging, grass-green silk gown, overlaid in black Chantilly lace, was dramatic enough. Then, Sarah turned up the intensity even more with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including emerald statement earrings, along with a cocktail ring and cuff bracelet.

She styled the dress with an ombre-effect ponytail, along with a dark oxblood pout and mahogany mani.

When I see such a striking, theatrical entrance from Sarah, I cannot help but wish that she would just dress her age and have a bit more lighthearted fun.
