'Modern Family' Star Debuts Bold New Look

Ariel Winter was almost unrecognisable debuting her new look to Instagram followers.

Posting a few pics to her 3.9 million followers on Instagram, the 21-year-old star of Modern Family showed off a new hairstyle inspired by another famous Ariel.

Captioning the pics with lyrics from 'The Little Mermaid', some fans were confused if the pics were even of Winter.

"Wait I’m so confused. Is this you?" one commenter wrote, with another adding, "Oh my gosh is this real". There were also many, many comparisons to another young redhead in Hollywood, Bella Thorne. And it looked like Thorne herself was a fan of Winter's new mermaid-inspired look.

This isn't the first time Winter has decided to go for a reddish tint, back in 2017 she opted for a darker approach.

Earlier this year, Winter also hit back at commenters who spoke out about her figure. In a pic posted in January, comments ranged from some asking, "where'd the curves go?" to another insinuating that Winter had undergone surgery for weight loss.

"I appreciate you wanting to help girls love themselves the way they are, but you are also kind of cutting someone (me) down," the young star wrote, adding, "I also didn’t get plastic surgery. That is also not being supportive of women if you’re just assuming something about the way they look."

Winter has starred as Alex Dunphy on 'Modern Family' since she was 11 years old. Growing up on TV and on social media hasn't been easy for the star who has become accustomed to hitting back at trolls who comment on her appearance.
