Not only is Winter coming, but Winter is here. Ariel Winter, who plays the book smart Alex Dunphy on the hit Modern Family, has seemingly come out of nowhere. Wasn’t she only 11 years old like last year? You are probably seeing Winter everywhere these days, just like us – she is definitely making her share of headlines and is on her way to breaking the Internet.
Now that her Instagram account is an ode to her sexy T&A, and also that she is officially 18 years old, Winter is getting seriously ogled at with her sexy pics and snaps, all in the name of #embracingyourcurves, and other trendy hashtags. Since she has been in the spotlight, from the age of 11, she has experienced the plight of condemnation of womanly bodies tenfold. First she was shamed at a young age for not having any curves, and then she was called a sl*t for showing them off.
While we certainly don’t think that Winter should be losing her entire career over some racy Instagram pictures, the reality is that a lot of people think otherwise. In posting sexy photo after sexy photo, she is making some big decisions, and possibly shunning her actress image for that of a social media image star, like Kim K. That said, Winter’s racy pics are screaming that this is definitely the end of her days as a child actress.
15. New Adult Roles Ahead
Ariel Winter is now 18 years old. She has been on the hit sitcom Modern Family as nerdy, bookworm Alex Dunphy since she was just 11 years old. She has grown up before our very eyes and in that time has yet to shed her innocent image – until now. Taking on the role of a somewhat unhinged woman who was hired to be the chauffeur of a former movie star, we expect that these more adult roles will be the norm for Winter as she transitions away from the kid on Modern Family. Now that Modern Family is already in its eighth season, the show will more than likely be coming to an end in very soon, which will force Winter to take on new beginnings. This racy picture isn’t the end of Winter’s career, it is merely the start of a new one.
14. Public Response: “She’s Asking For It”
This seemingly innocent picture of Ariel Winter bikini clad alongside her nieces caused a lot of controversy at the time. Since she was only 17 years old and chose to wear a bikini (big shocker!), people thought it was appropriate to comment such things like she was “asking for it.” Umm, wrong. Winter responded to the picture in another Instagram post, writing, “Who knew that an innocent photo with my nieces would turn into this? The height of a girl’s skirt or whatever she is wearing for that matter, does not imply what she is asking for. It sickens me to think at 17 years old, a photo of myself with my nieces is suggesting that I’m ‘asking for it’. You are not asking for anything because of what you are wearing – you are expressing yourself and don’t you ever think you deserve the negativity as the consequence to what you are wearing – YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.” We applaud Winter for speaking out on the matter; however, this is only the beginning in terms of the controversy that will follow her.
13. Playing Dress Up
If there is a picture that says “I’m not a child anymore,” it is a picture of a young woman in a Playboy bunny costume. Not exactly one of the most original costumes, but she does look great. This is not one of Ariel Winter’s raciest pictures, but the connotations are certainly there. The picture, which Winter shared on her Instagram account, also shows off her tattoo on her back, which is also a sign that Winter is growing up. Lately, Ariel Winter has been buzzed about – presumably because of all of her racy pictures on her Instagram account and the fact that it’s now okay to ogle her now that she is 18 years old. Indeed, her pictures have been the source of a lot of backlash, presumably from parents rejecting her new image but also from men and women, both young and old, policing Ariel’s choice of dress. In Winter’s defense, a lot of elements go into a woman’s choice of outfit that has nothing to do with being attention-seeking or that she wants it or that she is a sl*t. Sometimes, a girl just wants to dress up as a bunny, you know?
12. Who Likes Short Shorts?
Here we are getting a taste of what is to come: a lot of skin. Winter has recently spoken out about her journey in the spotlight, which started when she was only 11 years old, and the ways in which people have discussed her body. She said, “I remember being completely flat everywhere – I had no curves, and I was getting hate for that. But then, when I was 12, my body changed, and I had boobs and a butt and these new curves. At first I was like, ‘Oh, wow, I like this,’ but soon pictures started surfacing of me online and I got the worst comments. I was called fat and ugly and a slut and all the worst possible things. It was really, really hard for me.” It really goes to show that you can’t please anyone and that Winter will have critics regardless of what choice she makes. We hope that for the sake of women everywhere, this changes soon.
11. Rub A Dub Dub
This picture of Ariel Winter baring it all in the bathtub caused a bit of a stir after she shared it on Instagram. Naturally, that makes sense since there is nothing but a few soap suds to cover her lady bits. Indeed, it is of her most sensual pictures yet. The picture even made its way onto the Maxim website! However, this picture is not as it seems. Winter is actually working in this steamy picture where she is on the set of her upcoming film, Dog Years, to be released by the end of the year. Ariel will star alongside Burt Reynolds in a film about growing old. Winter captioned the picture with “Today’s office…relax everyone it’s cranberry juice and I’m wearing lady bit pasties.” As we’ve said before, this is just the start of Winter’s edgier Hollywood roles.
10. Racy Connotations
This picture doesn’t reveal as much as others on this list, but that pole looks somewhat reminiscent of a stripper pole, which is why we have included it on this list. Indeed, this picture’s racy connotations are clearly very evident. What do you think of all of Winter’s sexy Instagram snaps? Is she becoming the next Miley Cyrus, rebelling against her former Disney-kid image or is this simply a case of a young girl liking this picture of herself and wanting to share it? Could all of these pictures help or hurt her career? Should it even matter? Unfortunately, we happen to live in a society that continues to police women’s choice of dress and the seemingly personal decision to dress a certain way is still a very public one. Indeed, this is all very risky business.
9. Got Them Daisy Dukes On
You can’t go wrong with a picture of a girl in Daisy Dukes, right? Winter is basically the queen of short shorts and she certainly isn’t afraid to bare it all. Indeed, Ariel Winter is setting herself up nicely to be able to star in the next Dukes of Hazzard remake (a la Jessica Simpson) – perhaps all of these racy pics won’t be the end of her career after all.
This girl has got it going on and her Instagram is an absolute goldmine when it comes to sexy pics, which is probably why she currently has almost 3 million followers. And to think that this is one of Winter’s less “racy” pictures, and yet, still hot AF in that crop top and short shorts.
8. “Everyone Has a Butt”
This is one of Ariel Winter’s most latest Instagram pics featuring her booty, a trend that has caused quite the controversy on the Internet. In this particular bodacious photo, she is having a touch-up, captioning the Instagram snap with #embraceyourcurves. For that, we applaud Winter for being so body positive. However, the Internet hasn’t been so kind when it comes to Winter showing off her curves, with Winter saying, “Everybody is so hyped up on the fact that I post photos where my butt’s out. It’s a butt. Everyone has a butt,” she explained. “I don’t think it’s crazy. It’s like, ‘Let me live! I’m enjoying my life, you’re enjoying your life, you should be posting your butt if you like it, too!’ She also said, “I’m not going to fight with someone on my Instagram that tells me they don’t like my outfit or I should put my butt away. I’m sorry you think I should put my butt away, but just unfollow me.” We definitely agree with Winter on this one, but do you?
7. Getting Cheeky
Girl’s got booty. Looking fly AF, Ariel Winter gets cheeky yet another time on her Instagram account. She may just be on her way to surpassing the Kardashians in the derriere department. This particular pic was a hit on Instagram, obviously, with 145K hearts – one of her most liked pictures on her account, as well as 3,718 comments, some ranging from the innocent “Dayuuuum,” to a lot of inappropriate Instagram wars that we can’t even mention here. But did you really expect anything differently? This picture was a “thank you” to Winter’s Instagram followers, allowing her to reach the two million mark. Thank you, indeed. We can’t wait to see what her three million thank you picture will be, but we have some nautical ideas.
6. Taking It All Off
If you identify as a knockers kind of guy/gal, Ariel Winter has got plenty to offer in that department. And, luckily for all of us, she isn’t afraid to show it all off. On the topic of her ample bosom, Winter spoke out publicly about her decision to undergo breast reduction surgery in 2015 after she suddenly had an F cup overnight. With her small 5 foot frame, Winter said that her large breasts were not only “ostracizing” but also “excruciatingly painful,” which played a part in her decision to go down to a 34D. Winter said that online, people would make statements about her provocative choice of dress, even though she was “just be wearing something anyone else could wear.”
Also speaking out the broader topic of sexualization of young girls in general, Winter said, “Women are already over-sexualized, and I grew into my body so young. I was 13, 14 years old, and I looked 19. Suddenly, people didn’t want to talk about my job – they just wanted to talk about my cleavage.” Should people have the right to comment on her body when she shares racy Instagram pictures or should that be off bounds?
5. Just Plain Raunchy
This picture is definitely one of Ariel Winter’s most raunchiest ones – after all, her friend is covering her lady bits with her hand and also has her stomach exposed. In other news, it does looks like she’s having a good night out with her friends. Indeed, this picture is definitely a bit scandalous and casts her in a somewhat of a party girl kind of light. Will she turn out to be a jaded child star like the rest of them or is this picture just an innocent one of a girl simply having a fun night out? Ariel seems bright enough – she is at UCLA next fall to study law, saying, “You gotta have something else you can do. I’ve always been interested in law so I think it’ll definitely be something that I’ll love to do and also go to school for.” Don’t always judge a book by its cover, right?
4. Peep Show Graduation Party
We don’t think it gets any hotter much than this. Indeed, we point you in the direction of Ariel’s shapely underboob. Can you say smoke-show?! Sure, the picture might have caused a lot of backlash due to Winter’s decision to wear this dress to her high school grad party, but Winter seems to be still celebrating in spite of it. In response to her Instagram picture she Tweeted, “Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress. And if you hate it, don’t buy it. But please get a hobby. XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody.” She then followed this up with another picture of herself in front of a mirror via Snapchat, saying, “Embrace all that you are. Don’t let those outside voices become your inner voice #mychoice #loveyourcurves.” Obviously, Winter has been getting a lot of attention lately, both good and bad. Will all of these racy pictures ruin her career or fuel it? Right now, they seem to be fueling it.
3. On All Fours
Ariel Winter shared a sultry picture of herself casually on all fours while at the beach via her Instagram page and in a bikini no less. Obviously, the picture is not lacking in sex appeal and many will (and do) appreciate her assets in this picture. If you like what you are seeing here, there is a lot more where this came from. The paparazzi managed to catch her on vacation with her then boyfriend and took a bunch of other very sizzling snaps. Of course, this picture is obviously sexually suggestive and a lot of people probably have a lot to say about it as they always do, but if there is one thing that young girls (and boys!) can learn from her, it is that of confidence in your own body and that of new buzz word, body positivity.
2. Breaking The Internet
Can you say curves? This girl has definitely got them. In that tiny-tiny bathing suit, we are privy to the wonder that is Ariel Winter’s bod. Those knee-high boots, a favourite of Ariel’s, take the picture to the next level. All we can say is, wow! Indeed, Winter seems to be channeling her inner Kardashian here and could very easily break the Internet with this pic. We definitely aren’t complaining about it, even if the majority of Winter’s racy pics seem to garner a lot of hate from the Internet. Do you think women should be able to wear what they want and be respected for their choice or do you believe that a woman needs to dress modestly in order to be respected? You’re probably too distracted by Winter’s body to even think about it, right?
1. The End Of An Era
We are getting to Ariel Winter’s raciest picture and this one looks like it could have come straight from what your grandmother might call a smutty magazine – or, you know, Winter’s own Instagram page. Indeed, her position is quite risqué (if you Google the whole photo, you’ll understand why we had to crop the bottom half) and we are even privy to a snippet of her frilly undergarments. Luckily for all of Winter’s crushes of the world, she appears to have left her pants at home. Naturally, this was a popular picture over on her Instagram account, bringing in 133K hearts and a lot of inappropriate comments. Speaking of Instagram comments, one that Winter seems to get a lot on her Instagram account is people wishing she dressed like that on Modern Family! Indeed, this picture is going to have many of us looking at book smart Alex Dunphy in an entirely new light. It is officially the end of an era.
