Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is making Santa blush. It was a braless, frontless deal from the 31-year-old this weekend, with those 1 million Instagram followers lapping it up as the Russian-born star updated her account with a super-sexy black minidress and boots getup showcasing winter style right from Texas. Nastia’s Sunday update offered two snaps, one killer body, and flawless style, with the 2008 all-around Olympic champion chipping in to help the festive spirit – by celebrating “the damn season.” Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. Nastia, who was born in Russia but was largely raised in the U.S., posted from her Dallas, TX base today, a location she’s already joked about having warm temperatures while the rest of the country freezes its pants off.
The photos, artsy and chic, showed the blonde both standing and seated, opening with her sun-drenched and in a long-sleeved black minidress paired with edgy, grunge-effect boots and statement shades – the second snap, far more revealing, showed off a no-front finish to the dress.
Nastia, who afforded a view of both her massive thigh gap and slender upper half, peeped her red-soled boots in the second image, also taking to her caption with a hint of sarcasm as she wrote: “‘Tis the damn season.”
If you don’t live inside Nastia’s Instagram, the five-time Olympic medalist, recently landing herself a movie role in “Little Gymnasts,” has been big-time shouting out the holidays, even admitting that she isn’t one of those people who has everything gift-wrapped ahead of time.

“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? ?” she wrote.
Nastia will have a lot to celebrate this year, though. Alongside her movie deal, the star has dropped a leotard collab, fronted Olay skincare, and launched her YouTube channel.
Nastia was just 22 when she retired back in 2012. Four years later, Liukin opened up to The Cut, revealing that quitting her routines and life on the beam left her feeling like a fish out of water.
“I remember walking into a regular gym, not a gymnastics gym, and looking at the equipment and thinking, “What are these things?” I had no idea what to do and how to use this equipment because my whole life was so structured,” she said.
