Aimee Mullins Interview at the Cannes Film Festival | Video

Model and Paralympian Aimee Mullins on Why She Doesn't "Subscribe" to Being a Role Model

Aimee Mullins has one diverse résumé. She's walked the runway for Alexander McQueen, interned at the Pentagon, and competed as a world-class athlete in the NCAA and at the Paralympics. Aimee, who was born without fibula bones and had both legs amputated below the knee as an infant, is also an outspoken advocate for new developments in prosthetics. We caught up with the renaissance woman as she fulfilled one of her many roles — this time as an ambassador for L'Oréal — during the Cannes Film Festival. She filled us in on the life goals she has yet to fulfill and why she thinks the term "role model" can be a complicated label. Aimee also talked about her own personal beauty philosophy and why so-called "flaws" should be embraced.
