Lindsey Vonn Swaps Skis for Stilettos


Lindsey Vonn is no stranger to powering through tough times.

In fact, all eyes are currently on the superstar skier as she scrambles to defy expectations – again – and rehab her re-injured right knee in time for the Sochi Olympics in February.

But it wasn’t a ski slope or a trainer that gave Vonn a hardcore workout during a cover photo shoot for the January issue of The Red Bulletin magazine, on sale Dec. 17. It was a pair of stilettos.

“I am sweating!” Vonn, 29, said after hours of posing in sky-high heels for the shoot, which took place in steamy Miami in August. “It’s a workout for my feet!”

While the Olympic champ has fun playing dress-up for shoots and walking red carpets, her main passion is clear. “My real world, my real life, my home is skiing. Hard work, sweat, getting up at 5 o’clock in the morning,” she says. “Red carpets are just a game, like when you’re a little girl and you dress up and stand in front of the mirror and feel like a princess.”

But now, as she focuses on getting healthy, Vonn feels more like a warrior. After her Nov. 19 accident on the slopes in Colorado, the determined gold medalist told fans: “Nothing will keep me from picking myself back up and continuing to fight for my dreams. #sochi2014 #whenyoufallgetbackup #notstopping #workinghard.”
