Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is eyeing up the dark side while flaunting her minuscule, gold medal-winning waist. The 31-year-old Russian-born star’s weekend Instagram update reminded her 1 million followers that she’s a total style queen, but it likewise saw the 2008 all-around Olympic champion pose a question. Nastia, whose icy blonde hair is a part of her identity, was asking fans if she should go darker. The stunning photo took under 10 minutes to bring in replies. Check it out below.
Scroll for the latest snap. Nastia, who is a big-time beauty blogger and even retails her own $55 Celery Green Cream with Volition, had posed tagging herself in a location she might not actually be in. The five-time Olympic medalist is currently enjoying a snowy cabin retreat in Montana, but her indoor snap came tagged at her usual, Dallas, TX base.
The gorgeous photo showed Nastia posing by a stylish curved staircase and popping in a cozy red sweater. A tan-mustard skirt accentuated her tiny waist, with Nastia posing wearing her tousled blonde hair down.
Nastia took to her caption with big holiday talk, even admitting she might be a bit behind on prepping for Christmas.
“Overheard someone at the nail salon say she already finished (AND wrapped) all of her Christmas shopping… and I’m over here like…. am I the only one that hasn’t even started? ? also should I go back to slightly darker hair?” she wrote.
Fans might slam Nastia over every tiny thing and accuse her of not eating correctly, but today brought positivity. See more photos after the snap!
Nastia was quick to gain comments, with one fan even telling the beauty she’s perfect as she is – others, meanwhile, didn’t mind the darker idea.
“SLIGHTLY darker, maybe just lowlights for the winter. And I JUST started the shopping and it’s so much fun! Those people who are already finished are freaks. Let no one tell you differently,” one fan replied.
“I’m all wrapped except for stockings” came from one boastful follower, but most sent their support. Keep scrolling for Nastia walking on her hands.
Nastia, who retired from professional gymnastics aged just 22 back in 2012, hasn’t lost the skill-set. In fact, her newly-launched YouTube channel has been documenting training days as she gears up for a friendly fitness fight-off with fellow gymnast, Alicia Sacramone Quinn.
