"Modern Family" star Ariel Winter received major praise for what she decided to wear to the SAG Awards.

She is quickly becoming an inspiration to teens everywhere, especially with her body positivity. The 18-year-old actress recently went public with her decision to have breast reduction surgery.

While attending the SAG Awards, she wore a strapless black down and photographers were quick to notice they could see her scars from the operation.

Reaction to the look has been mostly positive, but some viewers criticized her and thought she should have covered up.

But many praised her for bearing her scars and embracing her decision to have the surgery.

Winter took to Twitter to explain why she didn't cover up.


Body shaming was partially why she decided to have the surgery last summer, after facing cyber bullying and dealing with what she said was "excruciating back pain."
