Nastia Liukin is ringing in fall – by keeping her wardrobe skimpy. The 30-year-old former Olympic gymnast and 2008 all-around Olympic champion updated her Instagram on Thursday with a stunning mirror snap, plus one of beloved dog Harley.
Nastia, followed by 1 million and recently dropping jaws as she fully extended both legs to “bring back bubble baths,” was back to knocking the camera dead – with clothes on, this time. The blonde is also back in Dallas, TX after a stunning trip out to Montana. Check that out, plus the latest shot below.
Scroll for the photo. The above one, posted in September, made headlines as Nastia’s massive thigh gap got its showcasing – the star may have retired from professional gymnastics aged just 22, but she hasn’t let herself go.
Today’s photo showed Nastia home and posing in front of a circular mirror, also near a bouquet of white roses. The blonde was flaunting her teeny-tiny waistline in black zip pants, with a bandeau black bralette up top covered only by a cropped and cashmere gray sweater-come-jacket.
Keep scrolling for the photo, plus the “bubble bath” shot. Nastia, also posing with both hands placed to her head and glancing upwards a little, then mentioned both October and her adorable pooch in her caption.
“Hiiiii october ? aka, the best month of the year (swipe to see harley obviously agreeing lol),” she wrote.
Click here for the swipe that fans have deemed totally worth the effort. It showed dog Harley sitting on wooden floors and wearing an adorable pumpkin dog coat in orange and green. But the gymnast’s four-legged friend looked bummed out AF.
Nastia, who has been making headlines for being big-time trolled on IG – and clapping back – didn’t generate any backlash here. But fans had spotted the dog, plus her suggestion that he wasn’t too happy to see Halloween month arrive.
“That puppy doe not look amused!?,” one user wrote.
“So adorable! That’s the same look I’ve gotten from my dogs when I dress them up! ? ?,” another added.
Nastia also snagged herself a like from 23-year-old gymnast Simone Biles, herself a dog lover. More below.
Nastia’s days on the beam might be over, but her career isn’t. The star has been snapped up for her influencer potential, with late September bringing her soaking wet, in her bathtub, and pointing her perfectly-formed toes while promoting popular skincare brand Olay. The eye-catching shot came captioned:
“I’m bringing back the bubble bath in 2020, y’all. #ad Using my favorite @olay products with Vitamin B3 complex because body care is the new skincare, am I right? These two gems visibly improve my skin—I’m talking Vitamin B3, Vitamin C, and shea butter to give me all the glow. #OlayPartner.”
