Already this year, Lindsey Vonn has been a Sports Illustrated cover girl, become America's Olympic sweetheart after winning Olympic gold and made a cameo on the longest running drama in television history. So what better way to end the greatest year of her life than dressing up like a sex-crazed, homicidal crime writer from an 18-year old movie on the cover of a magazine?

Vonn will appear on the cover of the upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine dressed like Sharon Stone's character, Catherine Trammel, from the film "Basic Instinct." It's part of the mag's film issue, which hits newsstands on Friday.

You can watch a behind-the-scenes video of Vonn's transformation to a 1990s-era Sharon Stone here. The resemblence is uncanny, but there's one major difference between Stone in the film and Vonn in the photo shoot: Vonn isn't holding a cigarette. (What, you thought I was talking about something else?)
