New Face (and Body) of Beauty
Aimee Mullins is pushing the boundaries of “traditional beauty” one stride at a time. Need some inspiration to lace up your shoes? Consider this: Mullins was born without fibular bones and, as an infant, had both of her legs amputated below the knee. She learned to walk using prosthetics, and then began to run. After becoming the first double amputee to compete in track & field in the NCAA while attending Georgetown University, Mullins set world records in the 100 meters, 200 meters and long jump at the 1996 Paralympic Games in Atlanta. As an athlete, actor, model and the global ambassador for L’Oréal, Mullins is committed to changing preconceived notions about disabilities. “Running,and sports in general, allow me to find confidence within myself,” she says. “And confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can have. It is much sexier than any body part.”
