” As a model, athlete and muse for innovators like Alexander McQueen and artist Matthew Barney, Aimee Mullins is one of fashion’s most accomplished talents. Her road to success was extraordinary; born with fibular hemimelia that resulted in the amputation of her legs, Aimee has worn prosthetic legs since childhood. Through determination, perseverance and outside of the box thinking, Aimee has distinguished herself; from appearances on the cover of Dazed & Confused, to walking down the McQueen runway in legs created by the designer himself. “
Awesome. Also do you know how fast she can run in those things? To hell with our fleshy stumpy legs. These legs are much better.
And she’s lovely. And brave. And admirable.
Will always reblog Aimee Mullins. She is transhumanism personified.
