Forget the haters, Ariel Winter!
After spending Sunday defending her decision to wear a dress that showed her surgery scars to the SAG Awards, Winter instagrammed encouragement to her followers to feel body-positive, always.
“Embrace all that you are…Scars & everything,” she captioned a photo of a quote from Marc Jacobs. “Your imperfections make you perfectly you #loveyourself.”
Her post reinforces her current tweet, where she told her fans that showing her scars was a conscious choice:
Guys there is a reason I didn’t make an effort to cover up my scars!” Winter tweeted. “They are part of me and I’m not ashamed of them at all.”
For an 18 year old, she’s gone through a lot of scrutiny. I’m glad she’s able to squash the hate in a couple eloquent, kind and encouraging sentences. Good on you, girl.
(Also, is that dress not gorgeous?!)
