The cast of “Modern Family” gathered for a special screening of the show’s season-eight finale on Thursday. Instead of generating discussion about the show, however, the only thing that many people wanted to talk about was the skimpy, ultra-glam dress worn by star Ariel Winter.
Winter, 19, plays middle Dunphy child Alex on the ABC sitcom, and raised eyebrows with her sexy mini-dress, featuring see-through cutouts revealing her cleavage and portions of her hips.
Winters’ dress certainly made her stand out in photos, compared to the far-more-casual attire favoured by the rest of the cast.

Following the event, numerous people on social media took Winter to task for her outfit, some stating she stood out like a sore thumb when posing with the rest of the cast, others making far nastier comments about her attire.
This led Winter to fire back in a scathing Instagram post, telling critics of her clothing to stop focusing on what she’s wearing.
“Why TF does anyone care that I didn’t dress casual like everyone else for the panel? Why do I have to be like everyone else?” she wrote.
