Ariel Winter

1. Who gets custody of Ariel Winter?A US court has ruled that 14-year-old Modern Family star Ariel Winter’s mum will not regain custody of her daughter for the time being.

The judge based his ruling on a report from child protection investigators, which found evidence of emotional abuse by Ariel’s mother, Crystal Workman, against her daughter. Claims of physical abuse were inconclusive. The judge ruled that Ariel should stay in the custody of her older sister until a December 12 court hearing.

Ariel was removed from her mother’s care earlier this month amid allegations of emotional and physical abuse. And that her mother may have been starving her.

7. Celebrity trend: Red Lace Frocks. If there was ever a celebrity trend that caught our attention for all the right reasons, the red lace dress is it. The delicate fabric doesn’t always equal sweet and girlie – in fiery red, a lace frock takes on a distinctly grown-up quality. This is how they’re wearing it on the red carpet:
