The young teen caught some attention — not necessarily for the right reason — after donning a very mature look at the Primetime Emmy Awards last night (Sept. 18). But do you think her dress was inappropriate?

Jaws dropped when 13-year-old Ariel Winter walked the Emmys red carpet in a pink floral lace halter-neck gown, which some think showed off a bit too much cleavage for a young girl. All eyes were on Ariel’s mature look, which battled that of her beloved, and much older, co-stars, Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen, who also wore very sexy dresses. But what do you think of the dress, inappropriate or age-appropriate?

“I thought it was very youthful, yet mature because it has the flowers and it’s blush pink,” Ariel told Us Weekly, defending her dress choice. “I have a sort of body in a way that you can’t really put a dress like this without it looking older and more mature, so it’s kind of not my fault!”

Ariel, who took home an Emmy along with the entire cast of Modern Family for Best Comedy Series, felt amazing in the dress and will stand by her decision.

“The color is amazing… I feel really good in it and I think that was the biggest thing for me,” she explains. “I know when I feel great in something that it is going to look great.”

So HollyMoms, what do you think of Ariel’s look? Share your thoughts!
