Ariel Winter, who starred as Alex Dunphy in the highly loved comedy show, “Modern Family,” marked a new age on January 28 in grand fashion.
The award-winning actress had an enviable blast in the world’s entertainment capital, Vegas, which she naturally shared with fans using a series of snaps, highlighting her latest look!
Ariel Winter Celebrates 25th Birthday With Her Favorite People In Las Vegas
Winter is over the moon as she turned “25 years + 2 days old,” based on a recent Instagram post detailing how her lavish birthday party went in Las Vegas.
Three pictures were attached to the update, with the first slide showing the celebrant in a mini green jeweled tube dress and rocking straight blonde hair. The sparkly ensemble flaunted her ample cleavage and hugged her curves in all the right places.
Winter’s face was glammed up to the nines with smokey eyes, voluminous lashes, and glossy nude lips. Her accessories were kept simple, with two rings while her blonde hair cascaded down her shoulders.
In the caption, she appreciated those who had a helping hand in the event’s success by writing, “Thank you so much @xlasvegas @wynnlasvegas @jasminemedar.” At the end of the message, she declared that she celebrated her 25th birthday with her “favorite people” in her most-loved city.
While fans got to see the “Sofia the First” star in the initial snap on the post, the following slide showed five ladies holding up individual posters with her name spelled out “ARIEL.” At the same time, a sixth female, standing close to the others, raised a blue and white board that read “Happy 25th Birthday.”
A brief video was added in the last slide, showing the DJ’s booth and highlighting just how spirited the party and the crowd were. The birthday post was certainly a favorite of fans as they remarked on how gorgeous Winter looked while sending love and best wishes.
“Hope you had the best time in Vegas!” a fan exclaimed while another gushed, “Happy Birthday, girl!!! LOVE the blonde!!!” Similarly, a third commenter noted that the blonde tresses looked great on the 25-year-old, whereas a fourth fan called her “so gorgeous,” adding, “happy birthday, u precious babe.”
A fifth follower penned, “Happy Birthday, girl!! Hope you had a great time celebrating your quarter century!” It is no news that Winter rose to prominence with her feature on ABC’s “Modern Family,” which she joined at 11, growing up in the public eye and becoming the stunner she is now.
However, she is not a huge fan of being the center of media attention, one of her reasons for relocating from Los Angeles, which she spoke openly about on the “Quitters” podcast in May 2022.
As The Blast reported, during the interview hosted by her on-screen mother, Julie Bowen, the Virginia native revealed that she preferred a private life and was tired of living in the bubble of L.A. Elaborating on the matter, she said,
“Part of the reason I always hated L.A. is because I have been followed by paparazzi for a very long portion of my life. And I really, really dislike having my space invaded.”
Winter added that she disliked her pictures being taken without her consent and hated feeling watched. She only wanted to live a normal life which she eventually realized was impossible in Los Angeles, given the regular paparazzi shots.
The ABC star admittedly never fully understood how distressing such attention was until she experienced it; still, she believed the media should focus more on her work and characters than her life.
The SAG Award Winner Returns To Television In “Hungry” Series, Replacing Demi Lovato
In March 2022, the 25-year-old made her comeback to television. Following Demi Lovato’s sudden exit from the NBC shows “Hungry,” Winter signed up as their replacement. Lovato, who was announced as the star of the show for about a year, surprisingly left as production was set to begin due to scheduling difficulties.
The “Camp Rock” alum is not totally done with the production as they remained an executive producer alongside Scott Manson, Todd Milliner, Sean Jayes, Scooter Braun, and James Shin.
Winter substituting for Lovato came about a few days after the exit, marking the “Mr. Peabody and Sherman” actress’ first return to TV as a lead character since the end of “Modern Family” in April 2020.
“Hungry” is written by Suzanne Martin and was set to debut in April 2021, but a month later, NBC announced it would be rescheduled till the 2021-2022 or 2022-2023 TV season.
Winter will star alongside Rory O’Malley, Valerie Bertinelli, Ryan McPartlin, Ashley D. Kelly, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, and Alex Brightman.
