For a moment, it must have looked like New York's fashion elite were taking their shows just a little too seriously after Lindsey Vonn was pulled aside to undergo a mandatory drug-test while in a couture gown at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards Monday night. The Olympic skier — who is training for the 2014 Winter games in Sochi, Russia — was accompanying designer Cynthia Rowley to the high-end awards ceremony at Lincoln Center when representatives from the International Olympic Committee pulled Vonn aside to fill a urine sample bottle— on the spot. According to The New York Post, sources said that Rowley and the skier — wearing a stunning, custom-made white gown from the designer, were sitting in Alice Tully Hall with other fashion luminaries — including Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and Anna Wintour — when Vonn got a call from the IOC. Several drug testers were waiting outside Lincoln Center, and told Vonn they needed access to the event to perform a drug test immediately. Rowley met the IOC group outside and ushered them into the hall. "Lindsay met the IOC at the bathroom. Cynthia stood guard outside, and no one was allowed to enter the bathroom. They were in there for about five minutes," a source told The Post. We’re told that amidst the glamorous setting, the IOC team made Vonn "pee in a cup" and tested the urine sample on the spot. She passed the test, our source reported, and the IOC staff told her to "have fun." "Here Lindsey is in this custom-made gown, feeling like Cinderella, and she has to get up and do a drug test," joked one source. Vonn didn’t seem rattled by it, and said afterwards: "We’re having a great time and [Rowley] did a great job with the dress." The world champion skier is recovering from a serious knee injury and claims her rehab regimen is going well. "I get to start jumping and running soon, so that’s exciting," she said. As for whether Woods is giving her rehab help, Vonn remarked: "He’s obviously been through it so he can relate. It’s good to have a strong support system." Remember, those little bottles are a woman's perfect accessory this season and nothing brings out those bright summer pastels like adding just a touch of yellow. Quick, someone better warn A-Rod to stay away from those Fashion Avenue soirees for the time being.
