For those of you that know Lindsey Vonn well for her accomplishments as an alpine skier, you may be surprised to find that she has many other talents. In fact, when you see her latest Instagram photos, you’ll start to wonder whether or not she was a model in a past life. Luckily for you, we have compiled her most unforgettable pictures that she’s posted on social media, and we have no doubt that your lives will be forever changed after you see them. There is a good reason we feel this way, and it’s not just because she looks “stunning” in them.
When we watch Lindsey do her thing as an athlete, we aren’t thinking about her personal life. We’re thinking about how she’s an elite competitor, a formidable opponent that is practically untouchable. But when it comes to Instagram, we’re able to see her in a completely setting, such as her life behind closed doors. Instagram enables Lindsey, and other celebrities for that matter, to share all kinds of pictures with us. Sometimes it’s as simple as a selfie, where the “less is more” concept really comes through. And other times we’re treated to the more high class side of her life, the lavish events, the alluring outfits, and poses that will stand the test of time.
Yes, one of the most popular things that the young kids do these days to pull off a classic selfie pose, is to stick their tongue out, and usually contort it into an interesting shape of some sort. Lindsey has allowed to herself to be a part of this marvelous trend, and as you can see here, she’s doing a pretty good job at enhancing her photos through the advent of this “tongue out” phenomenon. Of course, it’s not just the tongue that helps her cause. The thick black eyeliner is certainly doing wonders for the picture on the right, highlighting her eyes in a way that we rarely get to see when she’s competing on the slopes.
Talk about a complete 180, right? If this article is intended to show you the other elements of Lindsey Vonn’s life outside the snowy stage, then this picture is kind of the pinnacle of that effort. We say this because of the high class nature of this picture. It absolutely breathes propriety and decadent culture, something that we don’t often associate with a rigorous athletic atmosphere. That said, this picture was actually taken at the Kentucky Derby, so the setting is a lot closer to world of sports that her wide brimmed hat may have initially suggested. Then again, regardless of where she is, you can’t deny that her outfit suggests a tone of high society.
Girl needs her sun
In addition to the fact that she was born in cold Minnesota, Lindsey is obviously bundled up quite frequently while she’s out competing in the freezing snow. Therefore, she considers it to be quite the luxury when she can hang out in warm weather and relax by the pool. Growing up in the north, she probably wasn’t exposed to much of a sun bathing culture, and we’re happy for her that she can now show off some of her latest bathing suits.
Pretty in pink
Well hello there, little missy in pink. It looks like Miss Lindsey Vonn likes to dress up just like all of the rest of us, and it seems that she’s pretty good at it too. More than anything, she seems to understand the value of having a good theme in her costume, and it looks like she’s gone with the color pink. From her pink eyeshadow, lipstick, and wig, the color sequence is consistent, and the face glitter adds a nice effect as well.
Quite the model
We told you that we had some treats for you, right? Instagram is useful for many different reasons. One of the ways people like to use it is by posting pictures of themselves in an amateur fashion, with no makeup on, or anything else for that matter. And then there are the times where people like to post the occasional professionally done up photo, and as you can see here… our Lindsey Vonn is no novice in the latter department.
But as much as Lindsey likes to party, she remains true to her craft. After the champagne bottles have been popped and drank, a good night’s sleep is in order. And when the morning comes, you best believe that Lindsey will be more than ready to get her exercise on once more. Because at the end of day, she is first and foremost an professional athlete, and you don’t get to that level without implementing a disciplined structure of workouts into your schedule.
Whether she’s out at a club, a private party, or a high class event, Lindsey knows how to dress up in a way that complements her look. She may impress viewers on television with her talents on the slopes, but she takes no breaks in shocking her peers even after the snow has been melted. People absolutely love Instagram pictures such as these, where she shows off some of her most edgy outfits in classic stunner fashion.
Vonn at the ESPYs
We think it goes without saying that Lindsey looks absolutely phenomenal here, but you may be surprised to find out the true nature of the setting. At first glance, it would appear that this is a picture from a modeling shoot. But it was actually taken at the 2017 ESPYs, where Lindsey wore this daring low cut charcoal colored dress of an interesting design. Although taken at the ESPYs, the picture was actually used in Vanity Fair magazine.
Filter is your friend
There’s something about using the right filter for the right picture that can sometimes yield Instagram perfection. This is one of those pictures, with Lindsey adding a not-so-subtle filter on a selfie she took, in a setting that looks like it could be her room. The filter adds a certain silvery chrome quality to the coloring of her lipstick as well as her hair, and it truly stands out. This shot is just another example of why she has as many followers as she does.
We’ve already talked about how Lindsey is clearly one who enjoys a good night out, but we couldn’t resist showing you this whopper of a picture, one where she’s wearing a skin tight mini dress and jacket that probably knocked out every crowd she came into contact with. Speaking off knocking people out, this outfit makes us think that Lindsey probably could have made an excellent Catwoman – think they should cast her in their next adaptation?
In the caption for this Instagram picture, Lindsey talked about her week at home. She wrote that she “worked hard at the gym,” and that she spent time with the people she loves. She then wrote that it’s now back to the slopes, and that she feels recharged – emphasizing the word “recharged” with a hashtag to stress this point. If this picture is any indication, she certainly does looks recharged, relaxed, and ready to keep taking names in all aspects of her life.
It’s time for you to be given a real inside look into how hard Lindsey works when it comes to being fit. She is doing some intense lifting, and the Superman shirt she’s wearing in this picture pretty much sums up her energy here. Just take a glimpse at the expression on her face, one that’s filled with perennial focus and determination. Behind all the medals and a podiums she’s achieved, this kind of hard work is how they are accomplished.
We’re going to be really honest with you about this one – this picture stuck with us. We saw it, and couldn’t stop thinking about it to the point where we had to include it in this article. There’s just something so wonderful and pure about the smile on Lindsey’s face here, and the captivating beach setting behind it. Not all poses are won over by giving the camera attitude – sometimes all you need is a genuine smile, and this picture is proof of that.
Fun with friends
We feel compelled to share with you a picture of Lindsey and her friend, as they get ready for a fun night out. It just wouldn’t feel right to us if we only showed you Instagram pictures where she’s by herself, not when so many of them are with her loved ones. As far as pictures with friends went, this was certainly one of our favorites. How could you not love it? These two blondes are ready to party, and this mirror selfie captures their essence fully.
Checking her Instagram?
Here’s a candid that pretty much sums up the generation that we live in. In an age of smartphones, it can be easy to have your eyes on your phone in any setting, and a high class event such as this one is no different. Lindsey Vonn is looking absolutely breathtaking in a dark gown and silver necklace, and yet she is perfectly content to be hanging out on a couch chair. We wonder what she’s doing on her phone – perhaps checking her Instagram?
In this day and age, superhero movies have gotten to be pretty popular. Recent Marvel-based movies especially have taken the world by storm, and it’s clear here that Lindsey is a fan of them too. But if you’re now asking yourself, “Who’s superhero outfit is she wearing here?,” we’ll fill you in. She is wearing the costume of Captain Marvel, and looking great in it if we may add. In fact, there is a new Captain Marvel movie set to be released in 2019, starring Brie Larson.
Racing all around
Lindsey Vonn is a competitive racer on the slopes, but it turns out that she is also a huge spectator of other racing sports. In this picture she attended a drag race competition, and got dressed up in a skin tight forest green dress for the event. It must have been interesting for her to watch the races, because while the sport is obviously very different than alpine skiing, there are also many things they have in common, and she probably had many insights about it while watching.
For this Instagram picture, Lindsey wrote a few things in the caption. She hashtagged the phrase “on the road,” and also wrote that nap time is her “favorite time.” Nap time is always a nice thing to come around, but we can only imagine how much better it is when one is on the road. Although she does look chipper in this picture, we can sense that there is a certain tiredness in her eyes, and she may have passed out right after this was taken.
After taking this picture, Lindsey acknowledged that she was “no Aly Raisman,” but that she could still hold her own in the balance beam department – and we completely agree with her. We even felt that she could have given herself a little bit more credit – just look at that focus! Is there anything that this young lady can’t do? We’re positive that the pedestrians of Venice Beach in sunny Southern California would have to agree with us there.
No matter how famous a person may get, there is nothing quite as exciting as when you get invited to appear on a talk show. And if you get invited to appear on Ellen DeGeneres’ show, some would say that’s as exciting as it gets. Lindsey was lucky enough to appear on Ellen, and as you can see here, she dressed up very nicely for the studio. In a funky dress that tastefully mixes it up in color and style, she further wowed audiences the world over.
