Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin ditched the spandex today and served her 1 million Instagram followers another flawless fashionista look. The five-time Olympic medalist, 31, uploaded a quick morning snap from the garage of her Dallas, TX home on Wednesday, serving up both her massive thigh gap and a reminder that her selfie game is strong. Nastia, who recently kicked off her YouTube channel and influences for everything from Olay skincare to Revolve clothing, proved just why fans keep hitting “follow.” Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Nastia, who retired from professional gymnastics aged just 22 in 2012, has been busy upping her style game. The beauty blogger, currently retailing her $55 Celery Green Cream with Volition, has also been stunning fans with her slinky dresses this fall – October 30 marked Nastia entering “year 31,” with the gymnast wowing in a two-piece-effect white dress as she threw a giant home birthday bash.
Today went grunge-effect and messy-haired, but Nastia aced it from head-to-toe.
Nastia’s snap, showing her slightly swinging a hip and flaunting her slender frame, brought her in a snazzy black minidress with a braless, no-front finish, with the 2008 all-around Olympic champion also rocking mid-calf and chunky black boots.
Nastia, who made October headlines for a massive anorexia clap-back, refuses to apologize for her muscle machine of a body – she admitted to being both “triggered” and “pissed” as a fan DM asked her how she feels about “promoting borderline anorexia looking bodies.”
Nastia is broadening her social media grip. The Russian-born star this month kicked off her YouTube channel, promising fans they’d get the “real” Nastia, but the fiercely-private blonde warned fans they wouldn’t get all the “tea.” Nastia has, however, been open about ending her three-year-long relationship with and engagement to ice hockey player Matt Lombardi.
Five days ago, Nastia posted in selfie mode on IG to ask fans what they want from her YouTube, writing:
“Okkk now that my youtube has officially launched, what do you guys want to see? drop your video suggestions below!”
Nastia, who just today posted a stunning and leggy bed snap of herself at home with dog Harley, continues to life her best life, having even admitted that her “year 30” wasn’t all that bad – despite a global pandemic.
Nastia then rung in her 31st year smiling and with a giant tray of sprinkle donuts as she eyed up another good year.
“Thankful… and so beyond lucky to have such amazing people in my life ?? ready for ya thirty one,” she wrote.
