The 19-year-old Modern Family star stood out from the crowd in a leather mini-dress as one of the guests of honour at Variety's Power of Young Women event in Hollywood on Tuesday night.
Winter is regularly forced to defend her choice of risqué ensembles from critics and previously said she won't conform to the expectations of her personal style. Earlier this year, she stood out in a daring cut-out dress at a Modern Family event, which promoted her to respond in a lengthy post 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?" she wrote.
Why can’t people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want? 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 your express yourself. Rant over."
Meanwhile, last night's event hosted a veritable who's who of Young Hollywood including Zendaya, wearing a sequin ombre suit by Vivetta, Chloe Grace Moretz sporting some serious Old Hollywood vibes in an LBD with glam waves a bold red lip, while 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford added some edge in a bodycon black dress.
