There was plenty to admire about Winter’s styling choices — her Romona Keveža gown, the earrings, the lipstick — but instead, the public’s attention was drawn to one tiny detail.
If you look closely at this photo, you can see a small scar emerging from the bodice of the actress’ dress:
As you might recall, the Modern Family star opted to have breast reduction surgery last June after years of physical pain and scrutiny of her appearance. And, as she explained on Twitter, she's not in any rush to conceal the marks left behind seven months on — even on the red carpet.
"Guys there is a reason I didn't make an effort to cover up my scars! They are part of me and I'm not ashamed of them at all," the 18-year-old tweeted earlier today in response to comments from her followers.
Excuse us while we applaud her for her honesty — although it's not exactly out of character. From the moment she made her surgery publicly known, Winter has been refreshingly upfront about why she made the decision to reduce her size 10F breasts to a size 12D.

“It started to hurt so bad that I couldn’t take the pain. My neck was hurting so bad and I actually had some problems with my spine,” the actress explained in an interview with Glamour last year. The actress had previously acknowledged that her breasts also made clothes shopping difficult.
