“Modern Family’s” Ariel Winter Draws Criticism For Emmy Dress

Too sexy for 13? Some might say.

We didn’t even recognize Modern Family’s Ariel Winter as she walked the red carpet at this year’s Emmys. And it wasn’t just because she wasn’t wearing her geeky glasses.

The 13-year-old cutie, who plays nerdy middle child Alex Dunphy on the award-winning sitcom has undergone some kind of swan-like transformation. But is it all a little too much, too soon? Within minutes of Ariel’s arrival at Sunday’s ceremony in Los Angeles — where Modern Family claimed its second consecutive Best Comedy trophy — the Twittersphere was abuzz with criticism over the teenager’s very grown-up choice of bust-baring evening gown.

“Ariel Winter, the Christina Hendricks of 13 year olds,” wrote one outspoken Tweeter

“I think next season ariel winter and sofia fergara [sic] will be confused as twins,” wrote another, referring to Ariel’s much older, and very sexy co-star.

“Ariel Winter looks as if she’s aged by about four years over hiatus,” another commented.

Do you think Ariel’s dress was inappropriate for a girl her age?
