Ariel Winter looked drop-dead gorgeous in her latest Instagram share, taking to the platform with photos she clarified were taking prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 22-year-old “Modern Family” star called herself a “baby-faced girl” as she showcased a variety of looks for Teen Vogue – the magazine was profiling the actress as the hit sitcom she grew up on ended after 11 years earlier this month.
Keep scrolling for Ariel’s snaps, what she had to say, plus the epic yoga pants baseball bat fun the ABC face has been having as she quarantines.
Ariel’s photos are below – you’ll need to swipe right for the range of looks. The post racking up over 61,000 likes in just 35 minutes opened with the redhead showing off her return to strawberry-blonde locks as she sat with hands placed on a white table – a block color and mesh-like waffle shirt in forest green, red, white, orange, and blue was casual with its top button undone, with Ariel also rocking mustard yellow hoop earrings as she shot the camera a direct gaze.
Ariel had definitely channeled her inner baby doll for the third image – here, the star was standing in a vintage-style and puff-sleeve floral top offsetting buttercup-yellow check pants, with a spaghetti strap dress also included as Ariel flashed her bare legs.
“a ‘smol’ baby faced girl ?? x @teenvogue pre quarantine ? link in bio ?? #teenvogue,” she captioned the shots.
A link in Ariel’s bio redirected fans to the beauty’s full feature which saw her discuss her mental health, “Modern Family” ending, plus the 30 pounds she dropped in 2019.
January 2019 saw Ariel make global headlines for shedding 30 pounds – the star was trolled over the weight loss as a fan suggested that she was on drugs.
“A lot of people commented on my post like, ‘No, she changed her antidepressant because she wanted to lose weight,’” Ariel told Teen Vogue. “No! I thought every medication I was on, I was going to stay at that weight, and that was fine. It had nothing to do with that,” she added.
Also addressed were the trolls that Ariel has had to put up with – a see-through and underwear-style dress donned for the “Modern Family” wrap-up party generated mass slamming for Ariel, enough for 29-year-old co-star Sarah Hyland to defend Winter.
“People on the internet really suck. It bothered me for so many years — I mean, it still does. It never goes away. When someone calls you a ‘fat sl-t,’ you’re not feeling happy about it. It doesn’t matter what you look like now, it doesn’t matter what you looked like then,” Ariel continued, adding: “You’re still going to read that and be like, ‘Oh, that sucks.’”
