Ariel Winter’s Estranged Mother Thinks She Needs To 'Dress Properly'

Actress Ariel Winter has spoken publicly about her desire to dress the way she likes, her confidence in her own body, and her disinterest in critics of her personal style. But one person related to the 19-year-old Modern Family star is still interested in weighing in on it.

In an interview with In Touch, Winter’s estranged mother, Crystal Workman, shared her thoughts on her daughter’s tendency to gravitate toward bold styles.

“She needs to grow up. I would tell her to dress properly, be the beautiful person she is. I feel sad that she feels the need to expose herself when it’s not necessary,” Workman said. “Ariel is smart, beautiful and talented. She is a legitimate actress. She does not need to do this. She is beautiful with her clothes on.”

Many deemed a tweet by Winter to be a response to her estranged mother’s remarks.

“What’s sad is that you lie consistently. Also, why is it that you only choose to talk to me through the press? I’m doing just fine. Toxic,” Winter wrote on the platform.
The two do not have a relationship; Winter was legally emancipated from Workman in 2015 after a long court battle, in which a number of physical and emotional abuse allegations surfaced.

Workman’s thoughts on Winter’s personal style come in direct opposition to the way Winter presents herself and the open conversations she maintains with her fanbase about body confidence and positivity. She often maintains that she’ll dress the way she wants to — regardless of feedback.

“I’m definitely a makeup at the beach person, and I don’t care if people think I look ridiculous — it’s my beach day!” Winter recently told Refinery29. “Whether I want to go natural or with makeup or in sweatpants, that’s up to me. People are so stressed out about how they’re going to look in their bathing suits that they forget to go to the beach because they want to go to the beach, which defeats the whole purpose. The beach should be a safe space.”
