Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is making a stand – well, a swing, on Instagram. The 30-year-old five-time Olympic medalist has been knocking the ball out the park with her pandemic updates, with Wednesday bringing a fresh look as the Russian-born star showed off her killer legs, massive thigh gap, and spot-on style. Nastia, followed by 1 million, remains a fashion lover on her Instagram, with today seeing the blonde shout out popular apparel brand Revolve. There was more, though, with Nastia name-dropping The Spice Girls and even reporting for “duty” as Posh Spice. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Nastia falls right into the millennial age bracket that had everyone bopping along to British girl band The Spice Girls as teenagers, with Nastia cherry-picking Victoria Beckham‘s Posh Spice alter ego for today.
The photo, a selfie, showed the 2008 all-around Olympic champion in her bedroom and rocking a skintight, long-sleeved, and thigh-grazing black minidress. Nastia, swinging her right hip back for maximum leg-flaunting, also wore white sneakers, with tassles from the dress hanging down beyond her hyper-extended legs.
Keep scrolling for more photos. Nastia, also showing off the stylish interiors of her Dallas, TX home, captioned the shot:
“Posh spice reporting for duty ? #revolveme @revolve.”
Fans, who are known for trolling Nastia, with one recently upsetting the gymnast via their anorexia remark, are lapping the snap up. Nastia was called “straight fire” by one user, with another saying:
“You’re absolutely gorgeous. Flawless???????????????.”
Nastia makes shade work both ways, though. Earlier this month, the blonde complained that too many of her fans had snapped up her free Starbucks gift card shared via her stories – she may not be a Kardashian, but this former athlete is definitely popular.
Nastia has been making headlines, both for eyeing up a 98-degree Dallas heatwave in a shark-teeth-effect swimsuit and for acknowledging that summer is pretty much over. Earlier this month, a stunning snap showing the star amid bedsheets and natural daylight came with mentions of fall.
“There’s (finally!) a chill in the air now and that means cold season is inevitably around the corner. With the change in seasons, I always try to keep my morning routine consistent, especially when I’m trying to keep my immune system strong!” Nastia wrote. More below.
Nastia was just 22 when she retired from professional gymnastics back in 2012. The star, now running her The Muse Collective empowerment startup, is also dabbling in her other great love – beauty. Liukin brought “bubble baths back in 2020” with an extended legs bathtub shot for skincare Olay brand this year, but she’s also got her own gig going on.
Nastia is retailing her $55 Celery Green Cream as part of a collab with beauty brand Volition. The Moscow native has also been reccing her favorite lip balms.
