Happy 23rd birthday to Sarah Hyland! We have watched the young starlet grow right before our eyes as the clever and sassy Haley Dunphy in the Emmy Award-winning comedy, Modern Family. Since then, Hyland has also grown into a little style icon herself—she is even the face of the new Heart Calgon fragrance range—and never skips a beat on the red carpet (we loved her gown switch-up during the 2013 Emmy Awards). But despite her on-trend looks, Hyland prefers to keep things casual off the red carpet, “I love a great sweater and skinny jean combo,” she told Instyle.com. The same goes for her Modern Family character, who would veer towards risky fashion choices, but now seems to have picked up a few style tips from Hyland. “Over the years, Haley has kind of morphed a little bit into my style on the show,” she said. “She’s wearing more sweaters and it’s kind of morphing from season one Haley into my style.” Talk about life imitating art. Be sure to catch Hyland and the rest of the Modern Family gang every Wednesday on ABC at 9/8c.
