Yara Shahidi loved the Ralph Lauren gown she was going to wear to the 2018 SAG Awards. There was just one problem: it wasn't pants. 

ET's Cameron Mathison spoke with the 17-year-old actress on the red carpet at the awards show, where she revealed a secret behind her stunning look. 

"It was originally supposed to be a dress, but I like to move, and they were so nice to make some pants for me," she shared. "So I'd get my tuxedo dreams." 

"It was amazing," she gushed. "And I have this huge bow, because why not be a little extra?"

The Grown-ish star was nominated at the SAG Awards with the cast of Black-ish for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, and admitted that it's been pretty "surreal" to find success on both shows. 

Grown-ish was picked up for season two last week. See more in the video below.
