Although Modern Family star Sarah Hyland tried on several dresses before settling on the Pamella Rolland column she ultimately wore at this year’s SAG Awards, the road to finding “the one” became more complex than the actress initially intended.

“[The dress] was actually a lot shorter,” Hyland tells InStyle.com. “I call these mullet dresses—so the mullet was shorter than this, but I was like, ‘It’s the SAG Awards! I want it to be more fancy,’ so, in 24 hours, they remade this dress,” she said, adding that the dress arrived Saturday morning at 8 a.m. A mullet never looked so good, Sarah!
