Lindsey Vonn clearly didn't let a knee injury get in the way of strutting her stuff on the runway. Especially when it's for a very worthy cause.
With the aid of crutches, the champion skier rocked a red Cynthia Rowley dress at New York Fashion Week on Thursday on behalf of The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women campaign. The show was designed to help promote women's heart disease prevention.
"I'm excited and nervous—this is not my spiel," Vonn told Today prior to making her grand entrance. "It'll be interesting to see how fast I get down there. I'm a skier; I don't normally walk the catwalk...especially in crutches."
