Modern Family star Ariel Winter has words for those who criticized the gold minidress she wore to an event for the show Wednesday night, People reports. Photos from the screening of the season eight finale showed that Winter's outfit stood out among the clothes worn by the other cast members who attended (Julie Bowen, for example, wore black slacks with a simple top, while Ty Burrell showed up in jeans). USA Today describes Winter's outfit like so: "Mesh panels showed off her cleavage as well as the tops of her thighs." But some of the commentary on Winter's outfit went beyond simply calling the teen overdressed, with some going so far as to say she looked "slutty." On Thursday night, Winter responded on Instagram.

"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? Why can’t people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want?" the 19-year-old wrote. "WEAR WHATEVER YOU WANT PEOPLE! As long as you feel good about yourself that’s what matters. I know I did. Don’t ever let anyone stifle who you are and how you express yourself. Rant over." (Winter says her "baby voice" makes her boyfriend uncomfortable.)
