Unless you live under a rock, you know who Ariel Winter is. She’s the child actor turned adult actor who burgeoned a little too much, loves to wear shocking little outfits, is unashamed of her curves and does not give a hoot about what people think of her clothes. While she may be a controversial figure in Hollywood, no one can say that she doesn't do what she wants when she wants to, and we have to respect that. Ariel is clearly a very bold and adventurous girl, and that is reflected in her personal style.
She’s curvy and has sass, though she has been accused of trying a little too hard to look like Kylie Jenner. She is more famous for her clothes than she is for her work, and is happy to give it back, with interest, to whosoever has a problem with what she wears – or rather to put it more succinctly, how much she doesn’t wear. Clearly, with curves like that on a 5’1 frame and one tough attitude, Ariel Winter is here to stay. So whether she steps out shopping or is snuggling with her boyfriend Levi Meaden, she will wear what she pleases and she refuses to apologize for it. That said, there are times she dropped too much money on clothes that did nothing for her, and her style sometimes is just way too over-the-top. It’s cool to be your own woman but sometimes it's better to let your natural beauty shine through, and Ariel has a lot of natural beauty to work with. Here are 20 of Ariel Winter’s fashion disasters we don’t like – not that she cares about what we think!
20 Those Snakeskin Boots Can't Save This Look
The lady with the red locks donned a rather shocking outfit to celebrate her graduation from her school Campbell Hall and her sister and legal guardian Shanelle threw her a party to celebrate. Not to disappoint herself or her fans, the young lady donned a tight bandage frock that showed off a whole lot of what Ariel had to offer. After undergoing surgery to help her with her back problems, she had claimed that she didn’t have to wear formfitting and revealing clothes but seeing this shot, well, we aren't so sure she was being honest. This look is definitely in line with Ariel's usual style: a crop top, tiny shorts, and snakeskin boots – clearly, Ariel Winter shows no mercy, and while we never would wear this absurd outfit, we respect her decision to wear it.
19 Ariel’s Hot Pink Hair Can't Distract From This Messy Outfit
Clearly, Ariel Winter is unafraid to show off her body and curves. "If I take a good picture of my [body], it’s gonna go on the internet. And you can enjoy it, or don’t," she boldly told Maxim. In another interview, she also said that when men post revealing shots on Instagram, they are not treated to the same scrutiny and criticism that women face on a daily basis for showing off their figures. We commend Ariel for standing up for her beliefs, and we think that she should continue to wear what she wants and live however she wants to, but we also think that some of the outfits she spends her hard-earned money on are a little bit much, and definitely don't do her any favors. This unflattering playsuit with the pink hair is just not a good look.
18 A Biker Babe Look That Doesn't Quite Work
We love her sassy attitude while decorating the hood of that car in style. The red hair, the pose – it’s great to see Ariel feeling confident in herself. But she’s trying a little too hard to appear attractive in this picture. There’s the crop top that shows off her belly and its scorpion tattoo. Then she’s unbuttoned her short shorts too to further show some skin. And then there are the really short shorts in themselves – you really can’t go shorter with shorts like these. The boots are fine but the choker and the red hair seems a little tacky. She’s young enough to be wholesomely pretty – this picture shows her trying too hard, and falls a tad flat of the original goal. The Pontiac is cool, though!
17 Ariel Needs To Invest In Some Clothes That Fit
Clearly, Ariel Winter is an eco-conscious fashionista and likes wearing her clothes again, instead of just discarding them after a few viral pics. Case in point: her favorite white crop top. This time it was paired with the tiniest pair of denim shorts – again, these are a favorite of hers. While many slammed Ariel for this outfit, she very clearly conveyed the message that she doesn’t care. Take in question this rant, “I'm trying to live my life! People wear shorts. People have wardrobe malfunctions. No one is perfect. I'm not a stylist! I don't know what to wear every day so I look 'appropriate' or 'fashionable.' I wear what I like and no one should fault me for that.” You go, girl! Sure, we would never spend the thousands she probably spent to purchase this outfit, but we have to respect her confidence and her right to wear whatever she pleases.
16 This Red Carpet Look Is Utterly Incomprehensible
Ariel Winter tried to rock a brand new hairstyle at the Critics' Choice Awards but all eyes were on her form rather than her strange hairstyle. Ariel Winter chose to wear this ill-fitting black dress with a very low back. Decked out in a sheer black gown adorned in yellow, black and silver beads, with her hair pulled up and away from the whole body-baring look, Winter looked a bit – well, a bit over the top! But she definitely dropped jaws as she worked this backless dress by Uel Camilo that flashed tons of skin. However, we can't say that this dress was worth the money, regardless of how much it cost Ariel. The look distracted from Ariel's natural beauty, and we would never be caught wearing it.
15 Only Ariel Would Go Full Beyoncé To A Party
This outfit of hers came under fire too, though it covers up her essentials in style. Why? Because apparently, it showed too much leg. But Winter has been clapping back at haters in style: “Just because I decide to show my body occasionally doesn't mean I'm unintelligent or that I'm talentless or that I have no self-respect. I have extreme respect for myself, I have talent, and I am intelligent. Do whatever you want, people, just strive to please yourself and no one else." We have to support the message, even if we don't think the look really works. The sparkly leotard looks like something Beyoncé would wear onstage at a concert, which is not a look we suggest for people to reach for in their day-to-day lives.
14 Not Looking Her Very Best In This Denim Dress
Despite being alluringly dressed quite often, every starlet has a bad fashion day every now and then – and to top it, the paparazzi can sometimes really catch someone at the worst and most unflattering moment. So here is Ariel Winter, not really looking like Ariel Winter in a bedraggled denim dress, gladiator flats, and a rather strange expression. She went make-up free and had her hair up in a messy bun and she dug into her phone while running errands. Body shamed since she was about 12, Winter has managed to get tough about what she wears and how she looks with all her critics. She clearly has the sass to carry off the look she wants to, even if she doesn’t look all that great in it. While we have nothing but respect for Ariel, we would never wear such an ill-fitting sack of a dress.
13 This 2017 Emmys Look Was A Total Disaster
As much as social media loves to diss her fashion choice, it’s when she is looking less than stellar when things start to get really antsy. At the 2017 Emmys, she turned up in a slightly bizarre Zuhair Murad creation. With an embellished animal print-style pattern and a really high double-slit, the gown did nothing for Ariels petite but curvy frame. In fact, she was pictured pulling the material across herself as she attempted to avoid an accident as the paparazzi merrily clicked away and at a point, her boyfriend Levi stepped in to help as he saw her dress troubles. He grabbed the dress and helped her rearrange the material so she didn't have the dreaded wardrobe accident that has afflicted so many actresses. He then picked up her train and carried it for her as she walked the carpet so she didn't trip. That's definitely a nice and supportive boyfriend, but Ariel could've avoided the whole situation by picking a less cumbersome (and nicer) dress.
12 This Two-Piece Is Basically A Pyjama Set
Yup, that’s what Ariel Winter looks like when she steps out of her car to fill it up. Here she is dressed in lacy shorts and a tube top that seem more like a pyjama set than anything else. While she is quick to tell everyone off that she wears what she likes cause it’s her body, well, sometimes too much skin is just that – too much skin. Winter's way of dressing was also criticized by her mother, Crystal Workman, from whom Ariel is estranged. Mommy Winter said she wishes her daughter would not show so much flesh. "I would not do that. She needs to grow up. I would tell her to dress properly, be the beautiful person she is," she once said. While we agree that Ariel is a beautiful person, we also respect Ariel for the choices she chooses to make with her own body. It may not be the most flattering look for many people, but Ariel at least has the self-confidence to go along with these wild looks.
11 That's A Whole Lot Of Look For A Trip To The Grocery Store
This is Ariel’s grocery shopping outfit choice: a small white crop top, of course, and a pair of denim shorts so tiny, they show off a whole lot. Why? Well, it's summer in Los Angeles, and it's Ariel Winter we are talking about here. When Ariel Winter steps out for coffee and some “grocery shopping,” she does so in a certain nonchalant style. In that, she nonchalantly wears whatever she wants to wear, and does not give a single thought to her critics, and her estranged mother. During a social media rant, Ariel advised people to leave her and other young women to wear what they please: "Please leave young women alone. We're just living our lives."
10 This Bathing Suit Would Not Be Flattering On Anyone
Unsurprisingly, there were plenty of trollers for this picture but Ariel Winter doesn’t care and doesn’t want to be a role model either. “You know people throw around the term role model a lot. I love the term, I think it’s great, but I think people put too much pressure on people to be perfect and to portray that image. Really, what we should be aspiring to, is having role models that are just themselves because people make mistakes, they are human and I think that’s really important and that’s what I aim to be, is just me and leave that out there,” said this non-role model. Ariel Winter clearly is a mature young woman, but the fitting and tacky clothes she wears are definitely not everyone's cup of tea. However, we support her choice to wear terrifically unflattering swimsuits, or anything else she chooses, for that matter.
9 This Gold Look Is Way Too Over-The-Top
When the cast of Modern Family gathered for a panel discussion, Ariel Winter stood out and would have from a mile away too. Why? While her co-stars were sporting khakis, jeans, and other laid-back attire; she went glam in a revealing mini dress. The thigh-high outfit, complete with sheer cutouts and glitzy embellishments, was found to be a bit out of place on such a casual occasion. But she’s Winter and she'll dress as glam as she wants, and also encourages her followers to follow their own fashion sense, too. “Why does anyone care that I didn't dress casual like everyone else for the panel?" she wrote on Instagram. "Why do I have to be like everyone else? Why can't people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want?"
8 We Are Not Even Sure What's Going On With This Outfit
She just celebrated her birthday and this now 20-year-old is back to her antics. When she met up for lunch with boyfriend Levi Meaden and their pals, she was back in her beloved short shorts, which she paired with a black lace-up tank top. The thigh-flashing pantyhose also featured corseted detailing on the back, and she scraped her raven locks into a messy top bun. Both she and Meaden rocked matching Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers and her favorite $1,650 Yves Saint Laurent cross-body bag. Just recently, when Polish journalist Ivo Widlak called Ariel a "low-rated actress" on January 16, she reminded him she can wear whatever she pleases: "My body is mine no matter what I wear. Women aren’t objects. Period." It's hard to argue with her, but this outfit is certainly one huge mess.
7 These Cut-Out Jeans Just Look Messy
On Memorial Day, Ariel Winter published a bikini pic of herself and tagged it, “Happy Memorial Day.” However, her 3.2 million followers questioned what bikini pictures had to do with Memorial Day, which is a federal holiday in the US for remembering the soldiers who bravely defended the country. A backlash followed with fans wondering what Memorial Day had got to do with this photo of Ariel. So later, she shared yet another post alongside the caption, “Could not be more grateful to all of the men and women who risk their lives to protect ours and our freedom. We are all forever indebted to your service. Thank you.” Crisis averted. These ripped jeans that we would never be caught in raked up another storm, but that's another story!
6 Channeling Bridget Jones With This Outfit
Here is Ariel Winter posing in a bunny costume and very reminiscent of Renee Zellwegger’s Bridget Jones’ bunny costume. The star has had to repeatedly post rants about her choice of clothes but does so unashamedly: “I’m not trying to be pap’d everywhere I go, I am literally just living, and unfortunately I can’t do that without paparazzi following me around everyday. I’m trying to live my life.” Wise words, Ariel. Instead of questioning her moral character because of the outfits she wears, we should always maintain our respect for people and their personal choices. That being said, we certainly think that the outfits she chooses, including this little number, are not exactly the most stylish or flattering things in the world.
5 These Shorts Clearly Do Not Fit Her
Basically, if there is one celebrity in Hollywood who seems impervious to all the garbage that is said about her by the trolls, the media and the paparazzi, it has to be Winter. She dresses to please herself, and is completely confident in clothes but refuses to be captioned or titled for the same. After being harangued for her audacity to wear shocking clothing, Ariel has never given up. Nope, what she does is stand up for herself and her body and adamantly proves that she doesn’t care about what people think about her penchant for showing skin. The young woman is confident and self-assured, which is great to see. However, what isn't so great is the unfortunate and tacky clothes that Ariel is always reaching for. The amount of skin that she chooses to show off is certainly not an issue, but can't Ariel find some nicer clothes to spend her money on?
4 Some Materials Should Never Be Used To Make Clothes
Ariel’s childhood was no cakewalk though and she claims her mother's relationship with her has always been rocky. It was only in recent years that Ariel made the bold move to estrange herself from her mother and denounce her terrible treatment of her. On top of these personal issues, Ariel was thrown into the limelight at a young age and was receiving hate from online trolls since she was so young. She felt a lack of control over how she was perceived, which could be why Ariel is so adamant on dressing however she likes. Her appearance became the talk of online trolls and Ariel realized that the only way to combat the hate was to stand up to it. So if you don’t this tight pink latex dress (and we certainly don't), remember that she doesn't care!
3 This Little White Dress Just Doesn't Work
As much as little black dresses are the norm for young Hollywood actresses, for Ariel, it’s the little white dress that is her favorite go-to look. White definitely suits the young beauty and gives her an ethereal look. The dress in question has a fairly demure neck and sleeves for a very miss innocent look, but it still showed off quite a bit. However, the lacy white dress is a little tacky, and doesn't suit the young and fresh-faced Ariel. Ariel doesn't seem to care much about following the trends, but a little style update definitely wouldn't hurt. This dress seems so 2010, and Ariel should be reaching for more modern and fun clothes. She is young and beautiful, and should be having more fun with her fashion.
2 This Red Outfit Is Super Unflattering
When Winter was younger, she split with her boyfriend of two years, singer Laurent Gaudette. And in true Winter style, she announced the split with a series of posts on social media. In a posting she shared with her 1.3 million Instagram followers, she insisted, "Love doesn't die, it simply evolves. We grow up, we realize what we truly want. I'm excited for this new chapter in my love life – love is all around. Family, friends, pizza, the old and the new!" This posted came not too long after Laurent had shared, “I couldn’t have a more perfect girlfriend." Ah, young love can be so fickle and dramatic! So to celebrate her single status, Ariel donned really tight scarlet top with matching pants. This tacky look is definitely not the best way to start off a new life as a single girl.
1 This Look Has Way Too Much Going On
Clearly, with her smoldering good looks, it didn’t take long for Winter to find a new boyfriend in Levi Meaden of Pacific Rim fame. To celebrate 4 months of dating, the lovebirds traveled to China – where other than raking in the sights and sounds and trekking up the Great Wall, Winter dressed up for dinner. Of course being a firm believer in showing the world what she has, Winter shared her travel pics. In the pic, Winter is wearing a very sheer top, black undergarments, silky skirt, and thigh-high boots with fishnet tights. She looks great, yes, but that isn't surprising, as Ariel is a beautiful girl. However, this look went way too far into tacky territory. All of these pieces separately are not terrible, but together they make a look that is just way too much, and not very stylish.
