Ariel Winter went full cowgirl with her birthday look this year. The “Modern Family” actress officially turned 22 on January 28, but it looks like the girl behind Alex Dunphy has kept the party vibe alive over on her Instagram. Ariel has yet to post a permanent update covering her big day, but her stories have been packed with birthday action.
Ariel took to her stories with reposts from friend accounts over the weekend. The content appearing on fan feeds on Monday morning seemed perfect for that post-Super Bowl pick-me-up.
Ariel’s stories showed her in various settings as she celebrated her birthday with friends. The 22-year-old was seen with her cake and blowing out candles, also showing off a super-fun and sexy birthday outfit.
Ariel’s look was comprised of a tiny black-patterned mini skirt matching a plunging and cleavage-flaunting bra – the lingerie was accessorized by a pink open shirt with fringe tassels. Ariel also wore knee-high boots, plus a statement beige cowboy hat.

Ariel’s birthday wasn’t a subdued affair. The sitcom star was also seen going absolutely wild with her pals, bouncing up and down and getting showered with confetti. Here, fans got a better view of the beauty’s outfit, with Ariel flaunting her toned legs and showing off a pair of white cowboy boots.
“This sums up how much fun last night was” appeared in text below the story.
Of course, the weekend brought a more high-profile birthday – singer Shakira was celebrating her 43rd birthday as she took to the Super Bowl Halftime show with “Dinero” singer Jennifer Lopez.
Growing up in front of the cameras was hard for Ariel, per her January reveal during the 2020 Television Critics Association winter press tour.
“I do have to say it was a really awkward year for me because I also went through puberty that summer,” she said, adding:
“So it was, like, we had episodes with me in braces, and then over the summer once we wrapped, I had other things. But I still wasn’t fully through puberty like Nolan, so I had things. It was awkward. I definitely think it’s really difficult to grow up in front of those people who have an opinion on everything you do and who are allowed to say it at any point.”
Ariel seems to be one of the cast’s most popular members over on social media. The actress’ Instagram updates have a way of breaking the internet – nobody’s forgotten that booty-baring thong video as Ariel rung in the New Year.
Ariel has 4.2 million Instagram followers. Her account is followed by celebrities including Bella Thorne, Gabrielle Union, and Olivia Munn.
