'I'm finally confident with my body': Lindsey Vonn, 31, bravely stripped off in a sizzling Instagram snap as she continued the promotional trail for her new book Strong Is The New Beautiful
The blonde athlete crouched down on a wooden box against a simple backdrop, forgoing any clothes as she took on her skiing stance with her ski-poles.
Balancing on her tip-toes allowed the four-time World Cup Champion's toned leg muscles to take prominence as well, as her gym-honed back as she covered her modesty with her arms.
With a fierce dash of bronzer on her cheeks and her luscious blonde locks falling over one side, she captioned the shot: 'Well guys, it's finally here! After a year and a half of hard work and a lot of personal growth, tomorrow my book will officially be sold in stores AND I'm starting my book tour!'
'It's taken me 31 years to finally be confident with my body and who i am, and I can't wait to share this with you! #StrongIsTheNewBeautiful'.
From slopes to studios: Lindsey swapped her ski boots for racy thigh high boots as she strutted to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to spoke about the hotly anticipated book
Get the A-list look with Lindsey's Stuart Weitzman boots
Summer is officially over and it's time we all start getting serious about fall fashion.
You don't want to be caught in the cold unprepared. And luckily you don't have to because Lindsey Vonn is showing us the way to work a mini dress for winter.
We suspect we'll be seeing a lot of these Stuart Weitzman 'Highland' boots in the coming months. They're a ubiquitous look in colder climes and Lindsey Vonn is not the first stylish star to be spotted in them--everyone from Gigi Hadid to Kylie Jenner, Olivia Palermo and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has strutted their stuff in these suede beauties so it's fair to say they've made it to cult status.
And if they're good enough for them, then they're definitely good enough for us so why not click (right) to buy some now? They come in an array of different colors too but we love this classic black colorway.

And Lindsey certainly oozed confidence as she followed up the snap with a slew of television appearances.
The beauty - who counts golfer Tiger Woods as her ex - swapped her ski boots for racy thigh high boots as she strutted to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
She was hard to miss in a short mini-dress which was bedazzled with blue, red and white beaded detailing.
She told the Today Show: 'I think I'm strong when it comes to working out and everything I do on the mountain, I feel confident in myself.

'[However] a lot of the time, I don't feel that confident. I have my insecurities like anyone else. Being on the mountain is the only time I feel 100 percent sure of myself.'
The sports icon said she especially questions herself in Hollywood.
'I haven't really felt like I fit in on the red carpets. I'm not your typical body type. I have insecurities. I'm very self-conscious. When I'm standing next to Emily Blunt, I don't compare to that. That's always been really tough for me.
'I have a lot of great friends in Hollywood and know a lot of great people, but I don't think I can compare. I'm bigger, I'm muscular and I don't think I can fit in.'
