WHO’S HAUTE? THURSDAYS: LINDSEY VONN
World champion ski racer, Lindsey Vonn, is one of the most successful female ski racers in American history. She was the first American woman to have won two consecutive overall World Cup championships, in 2008 and 2009. She also holds the U.S. record with nine World Cup Wins in a single season. While she’s won just about every other prize, she has yet to win an Olympic medal; but she will soon have her chance. Vonn cannot wait to compete at the 2010 games in Vancouver and her fans can’t wait either. Many believe she has the potential to become the “Michael Phelps of the Winter Olympics.”
Vonn has always had success on the slopes and with the Winter Games just around the corner, she’s also become a huge hit with marketers. She has signed on with major manufacturer and Olympic sponsor, Proctor & Gamble (P&G), and will appear in P&G beauty ad campaigns for brands including Cover Girl, Olay, Pantene, Secret, and Venus.
The skier has admitted that fashion and style have always been of interest to her, as a different way to express herself. In fact, she recently took off her snow boots and slipped into stilettos for her very first fashion spread in Austria’s 1st magazine.
And now Lindsey is letting fans make a big fashion decision on her behalf. Enter here to contribute your original artwork, for a chance to appear on a customized helmet that she will wear on the slopes in Vancouver!
