Strong, beautiful and a L'Oréal Paris Brand Ambassador, Aimee Mullins breaks boundaries with her inspirational outlook and positive attitude.
Her breath-taking story is one to be admired. Born without a fibula in each leg, Aimee had both legs amputated just below the knee at just one year's old. Age two, Aimee learned to walk with artificial limbs and played normally with other children. An excellent student, it was after graduating from college that Aimee decided to pursue a sporting career.
Her contribution to the world of sport has been phenomenal. She first made the American team for the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996, and later set the world record for the 100 and 200 meter long jump. Later, Aimee was appointed project manager for the America Paralymic team in the London 2012 Olympics.
After being introduced to the world through several magazine features, Aimee's influential voice has made her a modern day muse and contemporary cultural figure.
Her foray into the fashion world began when Alexander McQueen asked her to walk at London Fashion Week in 1999. Today, she remains a symbol of strength, beauty and fitness.
A regular on the red-carpet and listed among People Magazine's 50 most beautiful people in the world, she was also named amongst the Most Famous Women of The 20th Century for her contribution to the world of sport. Challenging perceptions and pushing the boundaries of beauty, Aimee is a modern day icon and naturally beautiful L'Oréal Paris spokesperson.
