At first you might be surprised to learn that Ariel Winter will appear as a guest judge, along with fashion designer Betsey Johnson, on the Nov. 13 episode of Project Runway All Stars . Winter is best known for her role as the studious, high-strung, and smarter-than-everyone Alex Dunphy on Modern Family .

Now, of course, encompassing all of those adjectives and having a sense of style aren't mutua lly exclusive. And it's not that Alex dresses poorly, exactly; it's just that her slightly nerdy teen uniform of glasses, jeans, and T-shirts is often overshadowed by her older sister Haley's girlier, skimpier ensembles.

But as we all know, actors and the characters they play are not usually one in the same. Winter is her own 16-year-old woman with a chic fashion sense to match. Click through some of Winter's most stylish moments, and you'll be saying, "Alex who?"
