Sarah Hyland was among the high-profile attendees who welcomed a new era in Florida gaming on Thursday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
The Modern Family actress took part in the opening of the new casino games, which included sports betting, roulette, and craps. She got in on the action and witnessed the first retail sports wager, the first spin of the roulette wheel, and the first roll of the craps dice initiated by Seminole chairman Marcellus Osceola Jr.
Slaying Barbiecore fashion, Hyland donned a bubblegum pink ensemble that went well against her naturally tan complexion.

The 33-year-old actress was hard to ignore as she opted to shun the cardinal cleavage-or-legs fashion rule, flaunting both assets in a pink jacket and a matching mini skirt by Mach & Mach.
Her all-pink skirt suit epitomizes the distinctive ultra-feminine flair of the Tbilisi-based fashion brand. It featured a pink wool long-sleeved jacket with a collared neck and a hook-and-eye closure clasped together with the brand’s signature glittering crystal bow.
Despite its minimalist, straightforward design, this jacket exudes a flirty charm when worn alone. For instance, Sarah, known for her daring and glamorous sense of style, opted to go braless underneath the wool outerwear, revealing a hint of her cleavage and toned abs.

The perfect embodiment of the brand’s ultra-feminine and high-octane allure, the Lipstick Jungle star wore her jacket with a coordinating pink wool mid-waist mini skirt that showed off her toned legs.
Her short 5’1″ height was enhanced by the metallic silver Christian Louboutin “So Me Spike” sandals with thin straps and gleaming spike embellishments. These Italian-made sandals came with open toes to showcase her feet, 4-inch stiletto heels, and red soles that are synonymous with the French shoe brand.
Completing her Barbie fashion was the “Samantha” bag from Mach & Mach’s Fall/Winter 2023 collection.
Available for $1,175 at Farfetch, this girly bag was an homage to the brand’s romantic mood. It had a structured trapezoid silhouette fashioned from glossy pink satin, an easy foldover top with a magnetic closure, and a top handle affixed to the bag with the label’s signature crystal bow.

During the event, Hyland cheekily stuck her tongue out as she pretended to bet everything on roulette.
She displayed her long, maroon-brown fake nails along with a set of sparkling rings adorning her fingers. Among them was her $200,000 5-carat oval diamond engagement ring from her husband, Wells Adams.
The Bumper in Berlin star had her signature bob tucked behind her ears to highlight her 0.632-carat Walters Faith Quentin 18k Baguette Diamond Hexagon hoop earrings.
She accentuated her green eyes with mascara and neutral eyeshadow and finished off her glam with a bronzed look that included dark nude lipstick and blush.

According to the press release, the new games were made possible by the gaming agreement between the Seminole Tribe and the State of Florida signed and approved in 2021.
“The Seminole Tribe of Florida is proud to point to a new era in Florida gaming with the unveiling of our new casino games,” said Chairman Osceola. “With the addition of craps, roulette and sports betting, we now offer a full complement of casino games and we join the ranks of leading casinos around the world.”
Seminole Gaming CEO Jim Allen added, “The entertainment, travel and tourism industries, and many more, will see positive economic impact caused by the new casino games. They will increase tourism to Florida and boost employment not only at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa, but also at businesses in the areas surrounding this casino complex and others operated by Seminole Gaming throughout Florida.”
