Modern Family star Ariel Winter has a great track record as a body-positive role model. She is so outspoken about her journey to feeling happy in her own skin and knows how to handle bullies without dimming her shine. That’s why we love this explanation of why she wore a swimsuit, shorts, and heels on the red carpet over the summer.

Ariel debuted this look at the Just Jared 4th Annual Summer Bash hosted by Uno in Los Angeles in July. Some fans loved the look and some people hated it, but it definitely got people talking.

It’s true, this is a real outfit she rocked on the red carpet!

We think it’s so cool how much Ariel is in love with this look. It’s definitely unexpected, but she totally rocks it! We also think it’s completely genius that she’s perfected a look that is both party-ready and pool-ready. The cutout detailing in her suit is so pretty, and the shorts and pumps elevate it to a totally glamorous level!

So thank you to Ariel Winter for giving us a cool fashion dare! We might have to try this one out a pool party ourselves.
