As a child, I was really into Disney princesses. Snow White was my absolute favorite.

Lindsay said of walking in the Victorias Secret Fashion Show, Each year, it somehow gets bigger and better. I heard when they first started in 1995, there were no performers, just the girls in simple lingerie. And now artists are begging to be in the show cause its the biggest deal, like the lingerie event of the century (beautyblitz.com).
In 2011, Lindsay Ellingson became one of the faces of Clarins.
