Lindsey Vonn: Sports Illustrated's Fashionable 50
Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn (Vail, Colo.) once again proves that she is among the most captivating athletes not only on the mountain but also on the red carpet, as she's been named to Sports Illustrated's "Fashionable 50" list.
Featured on the cover with boyfriend P.K Subban - a Canadian professional hockey player for the Nashville Predators of the NHL - Vonn shines. The star-studded list includes Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton, ballet dancer Misty Copeland, Los Angeles Lakers' Lebron James, Team USA PyeongChang Winter Olympics teammate, figure skater Adam Rippon, and many more.
"Take one look at runway shows, city streets, red carpets and Instagram feeds and you’ll see the familiar faces of the world’s top athletes sporting a different look," the article reads. "Off the court or field, outside of the ring or away from the ice, these sports stars do away with uniforms and team colors and opt for attire more suitable to their varying personalities and tastes. From statement-makers to trendsetters, to classic gentlemen, sneakerheads and the designers building brands, athletes prove that fashion just isn’t about what you wear, it’s also about how you wear it and why you wear it.
As the worlds of sports and style continue to collide, the editors of Sports Illustrated unveil the third annual Fashionable 50 list, honoring the world’s most stylish athletes."
Vonn's style motto? “Classy but different, and it has to fit my curvy body type, which can be a challenge.”
Keep an eye out for Vonn, also, on Discovery Channel's Shark Week 2018, starting on Sunday, July 22nd. Vonn will join other top athletes including Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and New England Patriots' tight end Rob Gronkowski, along with top shark scientists to learn about the ocean's top predators.
Vonn, who currently has 82 FIS Alpine World Cup victories, is just five victories shy of the win record set by Sweden's legendary Ingemar Stenmark. With five victories gained during the 2017-18 season, Vonn is on the cusp of making history (again), and hopes to do so this 2018-19 season.
