Nothing’s going to stand between Ariel Winter and body-baring clothes.
The “Modern Family” star set social media ablaze on Sunday night, when she showed up to the Emmys in a gown with not one but two hip-high slits.
“I usually do cleavage and not legs,” she tells People. “So I decided to switch it up!”
It’s not the first time Winter’s caught attention — positive or otherwise — for a risqué wardrobe choice. Over the past year, the 19-year-old actress has hit the red carpet in all manner of tight, skin-showing minidresses.
Recently, she drew ire from fans when she uploaded a photo on Instagram of herself wearing tiny denim shorts.
“Who needs to dress [this] revealing to just do normal day stuff?” wrote one user on Instagram. “Do u want attention or something?”
But Winter fired back at her critics in a Twitter post.
“I’m not a whore because I wear shorts and tank tops,” she tweeted in July. “My shorts fit me and everything I’m doing is just fine. Please leave young women alone.”
In the past, the brunette beauty has been an outspoken advocate of body positivity. In May, she told Refinery 29, “Thanks to Donald Trump, we’re being objectified and made to feel bad about ourselves. So I think it’s really important for women to stick together and do the opposite of that — to let their bodies be seen and be heard and . . . to remind each other that what they look like is not the only thing that’s important.”
Even so, some fashion fans can’t get behind her flashy fashion.
As style bloggers Tom and Lorenzo put it: “It bugs us that her whole body positivity message . . . is inextricably bound up in the idea of promoting really tacky, s - - tty, ugly fashion.”
