On the massively successful Modern Family, Winter plays the awkward middle child of the Dunphy family who openly pokes fun at her older sister's wardrobe and choice of romantic partners. Despite the role she plays in the sitcom, Winter herself has had no problem embracing the woman she's become and takes pride in her appearance.
The 19-year-old starlet has embraced social media the way many women her age do and has often showed off her sexier side on Instagram, sometimes in sillier ways than others. Regardless of intent, there's no denying the Winter has become one of the hottest rising actresses and, with the TV series ending in its tenth season, she'll be taking on more adult roles in future TV series and movies.
In case you only remember Winter as the awkward Alex Dunphy, here are some of the star's most sizzling Instagram posts to show you the woman she's become!
