Ariel Winter has wowed fans with her new platinum hair colour.

The Modern Family star took to social media to show off her new ‘do, which she jokingly claimed was inspired by Emilia Clarke’s character Daenerys Targaryen from the hit HBO show, Game of Thrones.

“Winter Is Coming!!!!!!!!!!!” she wrote, borrowing a GOT phrase, on Instagram, alongside several snaps of her lounging outside in her garden, wearing a cute floral printed vest top and stonewashed jeans.

Ariel’s boyfriend Luke Benward acknowledged the 22-year-old’s inspiration by simply writing “Targaryen” in the comments, as her fans went wild over the transformation.

“Marilyn Monroe vibes,” wrote one, while another commented: “my favorite color on you ever.”

Back in February, Ariel debuted a strawberry blonde hair colour on social media, after months of slowly transitioning from dark brown to a shade closer to her natural shade.

“Bye bye dark hair 🙂 I don’t think I’ll miss you :))),” she wrote at the time.

Ariel has played Alex Dunphy on the hit U.S. sitcom Modern Family since 2009, and had to undergo extensive colouring for more than a decade to ensure her locks stayed dark brown.

But when she filmed her final scenes as the middle Dunphy child back in February, she made a vow to avoid brunette hair for a long time.

“I said to myself, ‘As soon as the show is over, I’m not going to have dark hair again unless somebody pays me to have dark hair again,’” she told StyleCaster earlier this year.
