Sarah Hyland made her first public appearance since getting a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend Matthew Prokop at the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party in L.A. on Friday, Sept. 26.

The Modern Family actress, 23, wore a colorful red and sky blue Donna Karan dress for the night out. An onlooker tells Us Weekly she mingled with some friends, and at times kept to herself.

“She looked like she was trying to put on a happy face and seem carefree,” the eyewitness told Us, “as though there was nothing going on.”

As previously reported, the ABC star obtained a domestic violence temporary restraining order against Prokop, a fellow actor, on Sept. 19. Us broke news last month that the couple split after five years of dating.

Hyland reportedly sought help from her TV mom Julie Bowen during her troubled relationship. Friend Vanessa Hudgens also reached out after hearing of the situation.

“I sent her a text earlier. I haven’t heard back from her, but I love her. I adore her,” Hudgens told Us the same night at her National Women Weekend event in Hollywood.

“All you need is your best friend. I feel like every girl feels that way,” she continued. “All you need is a couple of girls who are always there by your side, you can call no matter what time of the night it is and know that they’ll be there for you. As long as you have that, you’re doing pretty good in life.”
