She may make you laugh on ABC’s Modern Family, but Sarah Hyland takes fashion seriously. The actress graces TeenPROM’s 2013 cover, on newsstands December 25th, and in the interview, she opens up about stepping up her fashion game, her longtime boyfriend Matt Prokop, her senior prom experience, and more.
“I’ve always expressed myself through my style, from when I was a child playing dress up to now.”, the actress says. “I think fashion is a way of expressing yourself and who you are,” Sarah says.
“I don’t think you ever make fashion mistakes because if you like it at that time, then it wasn’t a mistake,” she says.
On the Marchesa gown she wore at the 2012 Emmys, which she collaborated on with designer Georgina Chapman: “I think it’s cool to be recognized, especially since I co-designed it,” Sarah says. “But I don’t think people’s opinions should matter too much.”
However, there is one opinion she takes into consideration, that of her longtime boyfriend, actor Matt Prokop: “His opinion means a lot to me. If he says he likes it, then I’m like, ‘Okay this is good.’”
