The 22-year-old actress, who now plays Haley Dunphy on the award-winning ABC sitcom “Modern Family,” glams up in tribute to Hollywood sex sirens.

The 'Modern Family' star gets grown up and glam for the cover of 'Glamoholic' magazine--what do you think of the look? Sound off below! Sarah Hyland, 22, looks so gorgeous on the magazine's newest cover with her hair teased into a sexy tousled style and her eyes accented in bronze tones. Sarah, who has just finished filming the upcoming comedy Struck by Lightning alongside 'Glee's' Chris Colfer and Rebel Wilson, opted for a dramatic cat's eye like her style icon Audrey Hepburn as she posed in a series of designer dresses.

Chris Colfer on "Struck By Lightning" and Klaine's Future: "It's No Fun To Say 'I Love You' in Every Scene"

Chris Colfer stars as high schooler Carson Phillips in Struck By Lightning

Ambition is not something that comes after success strikes but, rather, is what helps a performer get there in the first place. Case in point, Chris Colfer, who became a household name when Fox’s Glee first premiered in 2009, had already been busy working on writing Struck By Lightning way before Kurt Hummel came into his life. It’s a case of full circle that the story he worked on years ago is finally coming to theaters with Colfer not only the screenwriter but also in the lead role.

In the coming of age film directed by Brian Donnelly (Saved!), Colfer plays teenaged Carson Phillips, who has a less than idyllic life with an absent father (Dermot Mulroney), a mother (Allison Janney) who likes to spend her days drinking and popping pills, and a thankless job running the »

What the hell is a tweet? Filmed on location at the Tribeca Film Center, writer/actor Chris Colfer and actress Polly Bergen strategize the marketing campaign behind the upcoming release of Struck By Lightning.

Fans of Modern Family can now get their nails decked out in colors inspired by the hit show's beloved characters -- Nicole by Opi is launching 14 new nail lacquers inspired by the award-winning comedy.

Good morning!

It's the most wonderful time of the year, when your favorite Lgbt authors talk about the best gay book they read in 2012. Alison Bechdel's Are You My Mother? was a popular one, because it's really freaking good.

Mary Lynn Rajskub went on the podcast Our Fifteen Minutes to discuss her recent coming out, although she'd probably hate if you called it that.

Naya Rivera looked gorgeous on the red carpet of the Trevor Live last night. We have a video interview coming later today. For now, settle for this photo.
