After so many red carpet events, award shows & ceremonies, putting on a cap and gown is not going to be something difficult for Modern Family star Ariel Winter. The 18-year-old was all set to graduate today from Campbell Hall, a private Episcopal high school in Studio City, California.
Sporting a new ruby red hairstyle, Winter shared a photo of herself and a friend at the celebration, captioning the photo, “From Baccalaureate to Graduation tomorrow and then UCLA bound #classof2020.” The fashion-forward actress sported a body-hugging lace white gown that had a similar overall shape to her prom dress.
She also happily shared her graduation day with her dog’s birthday, wishing her dog Rocco a happy first birthday on Instagram on Monday as well. After applying to 15 colleges, Winter decided to attend the University of California, Los Angeles, in the fall of 2016. UCLA has the largest applicant pool of any university in the United States, with Ariel being 1 of 119,000 applicants who vied for a spot in the college’s class of 2020.
The teen said in an interview last year that she plans to study business and law, saying, “I’ve always been interested in law and it’s something that I’d love to do and go to school for.”
