When it comes to having certain phobias about something, a lot of people tend to have the same, rational phobias, such as fear of heights aka vertigo, or fear of spiders aka arachnophobia, or other acceptable fears. However, there are also some people who have some very odd fears, that some of us just simply cannot get our heads around.
Well it seems that Victoria's Secret model Lindsay Ellingson is a person who has one of these rather unusual fears, admitting that she has a phobia of velvet, which is also known as haptodysphoria. While some people may feel that Lindsay is overreacting and it is just a dislike of the material, the stunning model insists that she cannot be anywhere near the stuff.
Ellingson was speaking to E! Online, when she revealed, "I have a very weird phobia of velvet! I think it's called haptodysphoria. I absolutely can't touch it. My worst nightmare would be sleeping in a bed of velvet; it makes me nauseous!" Meanwhile, Lindsay is preparing to release her very own range of cosmetics, called Wander Beauty, admitting that she has become obsessed with beauty products.
Ellingson added, "I'm so excited to announce I'll be launching a cosmetic line called Wander Beauty next April! I've learned so much in the last 10 years as a model, and I'm obsessed with beauty products. My friends call me the walking Sephora because I carry such a variety of beauty products in my purse, they can always count on me for a touch up. I love doing their makeup as well as my own for red carpet events and dates."
Lindsay Ellingson recently walked the runway at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2014, while singer Ariana Grande was belting out some of her hits.
