Sarah Hyland often sketches dress designs and sends them to designers with the hope they will create it for her.

In a bid to combine her love of drawing and fashion the Modern Family actress often designs her own gowns for red carpet events. At the Emmys in Los Angeles last month she arrived in a stunning emerald CH Carolina Herrera dress which she had come up with herself. She admits to feeling nervous when waiting for a response from designers on whether they approve of her ideas.

"For the past two years I've co-designed my Emmy dress," she told the latest edition of British magazine InStyle. "The first year was with Christian Siriano, last year was with Georgina Chapman of Marchesa and I've co-designed again this year. I love sketching dresses that I think would be good for the Emmys, then I send them off to designers and hope and pray they like what I've drawn and want to collaborate."

The 22-year-old star models various eyeshadows for the accompanying photoshoot in the magazine, with make-up artist Andrew Gallimore creating looks such as a fade to grey and purple haze.

Sarah enjoys using new products and feels confident wearing a dramatic look. However, when it comes to life outside of work the brunette beauty likes to keep things simple.

"I love trying new make-up but on a daily basis I stick to moisturiser - sometimes tinted moisturiser - mascara and a bit of concealer, because you can't have dark circles showing up!" she laughed.
