We know what you're thinking – favorite Modern Family star? Isn't the entire Internet still obsessed with Sofia Vergara?
It certainly is – but at this point, the show has been on so absurdly long that the torch is now being passed to a new generation, and no one in the cast has had a bigger year than Ariel Winter.
In addition to continuing to be a fan favorite in her role as Alex Dunphy, Ariel made news in 2015 for speaking publicly about her breast reduction surgery and courageously taking a stand on a number of issues faced by women and young people in general in the 21st Century.

And, of course, she remains a gorgeous young woman. So in honor of her recent 18th birthday, please enjoy 18 of Ariel's most flawless photos:
