We know what you're thinking after reading the above title – favorite Modern Family star? Isn't the entire Internet 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.
To wit, 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 different reasons entirely.
She's spoken out publicly about her breast reduction surgery and about courageously sticking up for victims of online bullying.
Taking a stand on a number of issues faced by women and young people in general in the 21st Century, she earned herself a legion of admirers.
While many shy away from online haters, Ariel slams body-shaming trolls and offers a positive example to her 1.4 million Instagram followers.
Regularly posting messages of hope and inspiration, Winter is coming on strong as far as young role models go.
And, of course, she remains a gorgeous young woman.
That likely has something to do with it too. So in honor of her recent 18th birthday, please enjoy a gallery of Ariel's most flawless photos:
