Ariel Winter has got it and she isn’t afraid to flaunt it. She also isn’t afraid to call out her haters.
The Modern Family actress attended an event for the ABC series Wednesday night, embracing the cold-shoulder trend in a gilded, embellished minidress. Mesh panels showed off her cleavage as well as the tops of her thighs. She paired the look with fire engine red nail polish and matching gold pumps.
And, yes, compared to her co-stars she was dressed the snazziest. Most of the men opted for casual slacks or jeans and neither of her female counterparts pictured opted for cocktail attire. But we’re still at a loss in trying to find what gave people the right to make some of the remarks tweeted in response to a cast photo. Though in all honesty, we didn’t search too hard.

Some commenters implied she was overdressed. But some tweets were incredibly offensive. “Ariel is def trying too hard to look slutty,” one user wrote. “That girl @arielwinter1 oozes insecurity and is 2 minutes away from being like or worse than Lindsay Lohan. Sad,” another tweeted.
Winter chose to clapback on Instagram Thursday evening, telling haters to mind their business.
“Why TF does anyone care that I didn’t dress casual like everyone else for the panel?” she asked in the shared screenshot, captioned with just an emoji. “Why do I have to be like everyone else? Why can’t people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want?”
