Here’s Lindsey Vonn rocking the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014 in New York. Lindsey was one of the models to hit the runway for the Celebrities Go Red For Women The Heart Truth Collection. She wore a figure-hugging red dress with see-through panels.
In case you’re wondering about the crutches, she suffered a knee injury, which forced her to pull out of the Sochi Olympics.
The Olympic skier-turned model-for-a-day shared her thoughts on today’s supermodels, and she wasn’t very nice about them.
Vonn, who previously slammed “skinny fat” models, told WWD: “I’ve been to a lot of photo shoots and I see these girls that are just really thin. They’re not healthy. They don’t work out. Health — that’s one of the reasons I am out tonight. Just in general staying active and being healthy is important.”
“It may look good in a magazine but it’s not actually healthy. And girls who are that skinny are actually fat. You can see the cellulite on their legs and on their butts,” she continued.
The athlete even delved into the “cellulite” topic: “You know I have cellulite too but I go to the gym and I try to eat healthy. I think that’s a better model for girls to look up to than skinny people who need to eat more.”
When asked who’s to blame for perpetuating super skinny stereotypes, Lindsey replied: “That’s a tough question. It’s pretty much everyone. It’s the industry itself.”
