"I'm sure I'll hear some negatives," says the "Modern Family" star. "I mean, screw it!"

Modern Family's Julie Bowen expects she'll make the worst dressed list for the Catherine Malandrino pantsuit she donned to Sunday's SAG Awards.

"Is it dicey? I'm sure I'll hear some negatives down the line," she told Giuliana Rancic on E!'s pre-show fashion special. PHOTOS: What the stars wore to the 2011 SAG Awards

"I did try on dresses, and I tried this on for the Emmys, and I've been wanting to wear it," added Bowen. "I mean, screw it! I don't think I look disrespectful."

She joked that she felt "tres elegante."

Regardless of her outfit, her ABC hit went home a big winner after earning outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series.
