Lindsey Vonn: Out of Olympics, On the Red Carpet at Fashion Week

A red carpet is a lot less treacherous than the ski slopes, so injured Olympian Lindsey Vonn could ditch the crutches long enough to make a splash at New York Fashion Week.

Trading winter gear for a red gown, Vonn walked (gingerly) in low kitten heels, pausing to pose for pictures with fellow athlete Sasha Cohen, at the Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show on Thursday night.

Halfway around the world in Sochi, Russia, the 2014 Winter Olympics were beginning, with 230 athletes from the United States getting ready for Friday's opening ceremony.

Gold medalist Vonn, 29, the most accomplished skier in U.S. history, had to sit out the Games after back-to-back knee injuries. She credits boyfriend Tiger Woods and her mother for helping her get through her Olympic heartache.

Saddened that she didn't qualify to compete at the Winter Games in Vancouver starting Friday night (on NBC), figure skater and 2006 Olympic silver medalist Sasha Cohen foresees the U.S. team losing to its international competition.

In her own case, severe injuries to her calves ended Cohen's hoped-for return to competitive figure skating at the Games.

"It's definitely disappointing and also a little bit of a shock when it's something you've trained for your whole life," Cohen, 25, tells PEOPLE. About placing fourth in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships and not qualifying for an Olympic spot, she says, "Of course I was hoping to make the team."

What people now want to know is whether the 25-year-old figure skater – missing from competitive meets for four years – will be a contender at next month's winter Olympics in Vancouver.
