Ariel Winter glammed up to the max at screening of Modern Family's season eight finale at the Wolf Theatre in Pasadena, California, on Wednesday, sparking criticism about her over-the-top appearance.
Unlike her costars, Winter went the whole nine yards on glamming up for the event.
The star donned a skintight mini dress featuring a busty mesh cutout.
The 19-year-old paired the dress with gold stilettos, a real statement.
When criticism over her outfit choice start pouring in, Winter released a statement on Instagram.
“Why TF does anyone care that I didn’t dress casual like everyone else for the panel? Why do I have to be like everyone else?” the sitcom star wrote. “Why can’t people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want?” Ariel continued. “WEAR WHATEVER YOU WANT PEOPLE!”
“As long as you feel good about yourself that’s what matters. I know I did," Winter concluded. "Don’t ever let anyone stifle who you are and how your express yourself. Rant over :)"
