Ariel Winter's complete style transformation: From adorable princess gowns to super sexy LBDs

Ariel Winter is not a little girl anymore!

The "Modern Family" actress has grown up right before our eyes, and she's made it clear with her impeccable sense of fashion. The 19-year-old star, who will attend UCLA this fall after taking a gap year, has been famously unapologetic for her risqué wardrobe.

Winter was only 10 years old when she started hitting her very first red carpets, opting for adorable dresses in bright colors only someone her age could pull off. As Ariel got older, she traded in her tea dresses for more form-fitting ensembles -- and she made heads turn wherever she went.

She looked like a total bombshell in a sophisticated gown that matched the red carpet at the 67th Annual Emmy Awards back in 2015. The gorgeous gown, that she paired with an Old Hollywood-inspired hairstyle, may be one of her most glamorous looks ever. One year later, she dropped jaws again at the same award show, this time in a see-through, crystal-encrusted ensemble that hugged every inch of her flawless figure.

Ariel also isn't afraid to flash some flesh in front of paparazzi as she's been photographed in seriously skin-baring looks that few would dare to rock. Sexy LBDs with plunging necklines or short hemlines are mainstays in her wardrobe. Occasionally, she'll whip out a jumpsuit with some revealing cutouts.

Controversial or not, Ariel definitely has made her reputation known as a total style icon!

Y'all I love you but PLEASE pay attention and post my REAL point from my @refinery29 interview!!! Not that I'm "defending living with my 29 year old boyfriend" or that I'm "firing back at Trump" because first of all I don't need to defend anything I'm super happy and in love, and I'm not firing at anyone just sharing an opinion after being ASKED! The point was to take back the beach and help people understand that the beach should be a safe space to go as you please and feel good about yourself no matter what! Makeup on, makeup off, heels, sandals, covered up, exposed, do you and feel HAPPY about who you are and YOUR choices, not the ones society wants us to choose. It's also HARD to be 100% confident- I'm still not- but I'm on a journey and I want other people to know they're not alone. We all struggle but through our struggle we get stronger and closer to our goals. Body positivity is important- not that I live with my boyfriend. Press- please read the article and take it for what it is- not what will give you more readers! Let's all be real and represent people how they want to be represented through what they actually say. Rant over. Love yourselves, love others, be yourselves, and be happy. Xo
