Ariel Winter's Prom Style Looks Familiar

by Marc Cuenco

She already shares the same name with the beloved Disney princess, but Ariel Winter's prom dress and styling is truly reminiscent of The Little Mermaid. The 18-year-old Modern Family star posted Instagram photos from her senior prom, where she looked absolutely breathtaking in a floor-length black lace gown with a sweetheart neckline. The lace detailing and length are similar to Winter's navy blue prom dress from 2015, but her bright red hair this year transformed her into an IRL Princess Ariel.

As one of the most fashionable young stars on the red carpet, Winter knows a thing or two about dressing up for a formal event. She chose the perfect prom dress that allowed her to feel a little more sophisticated, but it still had a young and edgy feel to it. Plus, Winter's fiery red hair added a modern twist to her glamorous look. To finish off her prom look, Winter kept her accessories minimal with just a metallic gold clutch.

If you're going for a Little Mermaid-goes-goth inspired evening ensemble, you can easily recreate the actress' senior prom look with this strapless lace gown from Nordstrom or go for one of these black lace cocktail dresses from ModCloth. The possibilities are endless, especially with a picture perfect inspiration from Winter at her senior prom:
