Sarah Hyland would pick close pal Vanessa Hudgens as her favourite former Candie's girl.

Actress Sarah Hyland is finding her first "office job" as Creative Director of Candie's a lot of fun.

The Modern Family star's involvement with the American fashion brand was unveiled in April (16), and Sarah is getting heavily involved in the design process behind the scenes as well as posing for the cameras as the face of the campaign.

“The first thing I did as Candie’s Creative Director was to have a special meeting with everyone from the team to go over the Fall line, influences and inspirations for the Spring line, and what we want the shoots to be like,” she told People Magazine. “I was sent boards at home with all of the influences, inspirations, fabrics and materials and I got to make notes and lay them all out. I took different colored sharpies and drew red hearts next to things I liked and big black X’s next to things I didn’t like and sent pictures back to the Candie’s team. I felt like I had an office job for the first time—it was kind of fun!”

The 25-year-old is the latest in a long line of famous faces to be involved with the brand, following in the footsteps of Britney Spears, Ashlee Simpson and Sarah's close friend Vanessa Hudgens, who she named as her favourite Candie's girl of all time.

"I’m so excited and honored to be a Candie’s girl because I’m following in the footsteps of amazing women," she said. "I remember the first Candie’s campaign I ever saw with Britney Spears so this is really awesome for me. A bunch of my friends have done it, so it’s really fun for me to do it as well. We can talk about it and share our stories!”

Sarah is focused on the brand's fall collection, and admits she wants to sneak a number of items into her own wardrobe.

“If I could only go home with one item from the Candie’s shoot, I’d choose the suede laser cut skirt,” she said. “Another one of my favourites is the olive army jacket. It’s really fun, comfortable and light for fall. It has embellishments on the pockets and I think that’s what girls will be into — bringing something flirty and fun to a piece like an army jacket."
