It's hard to outdo yourself when your wardrobe consists of high hemlines and plunging necklines, but even Ariel Winter knows how to up her game when necessary.

The Modern Family star (19) was dressed to turn heads in a black maxi dress with a neckline plunging to the navel and a thigh high slit at the closing night of the Palm Springs International Film Festival, joining boyfriend Levi Meaden (30).

Winter is famous for her risqué wardrobe choices, often saying she feels more empowered dressing to her own taste rather than conforming to what is expected of young actresses on the red carpet.

"I definitely used to feel a lot more anxious about what I posted and what people commented, and now I just really don’t care. I struggled for so many years with people hating on what I’m doing, saying I should change the way I look, the way I dress," she told Maxim last year.

"I tried to change for years and I hated the person I became—and hated that people were still just as negative. I realized the only person I should worry about pleasing is myself. I have this policy. If you don’t like what I post, don’t follow me. If you don’t like what I say, don’t read it.

"You know, I post photos of my butt and I have cleavage out on the Internet—who cares? Guys post their naked bodies and nobody says anything to them - a bunch of girls comment and are like, 'This is amazing, you’re so hot!' But if we do it, we’re like the sluts of the world," she said.

"It’s super offensive. I make a point now to just post it. If I take a good picture of my butt, it’s gonna go on the Internet. And you can enjoy it, or don’t."
