The 2016 Screen Actors Guild Awards were held in LA on Saturday night, and while the cast of Modern Family may have gone home empty-handed, one of the show’s young stars won big on the red carpet:

Ariel Winter: SAG Awards Photo

Obviously, Ariel Winter looks stunning in a form-fitting black dress, but the outfit is getting a lot of attention online for reasons that go beyond her savvy style choices.

Last June, Winter underwent breast reduction surgery, taking her from a 32F to a 34D.

She’s spoken openly about the procedure and how it’s made her feel more comfortable in her own skin.

At this year’s SAG Awards, she went a step further, sporting a dress that revealed the faint scars from the operation.

Winter explained her decision to fans later that evening:

"Guys there is a reason I didn’t make an effort to cover up my scars!" she tweeted after the ceremony. "They are part of me and I’m not ashamed of them at all. :)"

Ariel has slammed body-shaming trolls in the past, and she’s generally served as a positive role model for young people who might be struggling with their self-esteem.

We applaud her for using her platform to send such a powerful message to her fans.
