After posting the pic, Winter faced a lot of blowback from haters who took her to task for wearing a dress they found to be inappropriately revealing and others who bashed the teenage graduate's body and figure.
It seems that Winter isn't letting her detractors keep her from loving herself and how she looks. She also tweeted out a pic of herself in a white midriff-baring top and some skin-tight jeans, writing in the caption, "Embrace all that you are. Don't let those outside voices become your inner voice #mychoice #loveyourcurves."
Winter followed that up with an inspirational message written by her friend and assistant, Davina Adjani, about how challenging it can be to remember your value "in a day [and] age in which Photoshop is there to remind you how you are not so-called perfect."
"Know your value. Remember who you are. Love yourself. You're perfect," Winter wrote alongside Adjani's inspirational words. "#stoptheshaming."
"If I didn't think about them myself, clearly I'm not ashamed of them. I don't know why anybody would be. They're not going away," Winter explained. Check out the video below to hear more from the outspoken star.
