Ariel Winter


Ariel Winter is officially college bound!

After graduating from high school last week, the Modern Family star celebrated with an awesome party hosted by her sister Shanelle Gray. The redheaded bombshell shared a photo of some of the party's lavish decorations, including an amazing themed cake. Standing next to the black-and-white decorated table, Ariel stunned in a skintight dress that featured a very risqué keyhole cutout.

In the caption, the actress became overcome with emotion while paying tribute to her family for supporting her throughout high school.

"Couldn't be more grateful to @shanelle_gray & @davidbarrygray for throwing me the most amazing graduation party ever last night...the amount of love and support they've shown me for the past four years has been life changing. My sister is my absolute best friend and my everything...Thank you so much," she began her lengthy caption.

Dad...I love you!!! Thank you for always being there to support and love me as well and always put a smile on my face no matter what :). I'm so grateful for the bond we now share."

She also gave some of her best friends shout outs, thanking them for everything they've contributed to her life and the party. "Alenah the song you put together with Shanelle and recorded for me was one of the most special gifts I've ever received. I'm still tearing up thinking about it. Thank you for that and for your beautiful, special performance, " she continued. "Also a big thank you so much to Geraldine for putting it all together and to @contemporarycatering @robpauerful for the most amazing food!
