Ariel Winter showed her patriotism in two red-and-white bikinis to celebrate July 4th. The Modern Family actress, 18, showed off her sculpted abs and toned legs in a halter-style top and low-cut bottoms, with her red hair swept up. “Happy birthday to the most amazing twins on this planet that I just so happen to be lucky enough to call my best friends❤️,” she captioned, dedicating the post to her best buds. “I love all of the amazing memories we’ve made and I can’t wait to make more. And Schuyler…..UCLA besties!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ You’re stuck with me for 4 more years ;)))).”

But a few hours later, Winter appeared in a shot all by herself. “Will always look back 😉 at this  #4thofjuly 🇺🇸,” she captioned the image. She posed in a white $284 Marysia Broadway scalloped triangle bikini with a string halter-neck top and hipster-cut briefs that displayed a good bit of her bum.

The recent high school graduate, who’s headed to the University of California, Los Angeles, has posted a fair share of sexy selfies (and belfies!) within the last few weeks. In a Wednesday, June 29, post, she took her followers to her summer job: the set of Dog Years. “Today’s office…relax everyone it’s cranberry juice and I’m wearing lady bit pasties,” the actress captioned a pic of herself in a bathtub, with strategically placed bubbles.

And on Sunday, June 26, she thanked her 2 million Instagram followers for their support by flaunting her bikini body in a red, white and blue tie-dye two-piece.

She’s also used social media to slam her haters. On Monday, June 20, she celebrated her graduation in a nude formfitting minidress with a cutout that featured some serious underboob. After receiving some negative comments, she tweeted her response: “Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress. And if you hate it, don’t buy it. But please get a hobby. XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody,” she posted on Wednesday, June 22.
