Sarah Hyland‘s Emmys night certainly didn’t get off on the right foot!

An eyewitness tells Life & Style the Modern Family star had a hard time walking in her shoes on the Emmys red carpet, so she channeled her inner diva and decided to sit down and take ’em off!

The onlooker claims Sarah yelled at her stylist about the sky-high white pumps, and said to the stylist, “I told you they were too high.”

She was visibly upset and also complaining about the heat. Yikes — talk about a red carpet meltdown!

In the exclusive photo, the 23-year-old is seen sitting in her flowing coral skirt and white crop top as she removes her shoe.

Hopefully her night gets a little better considering Modern Family is up for an award in five categories!
