Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin kept it unzipped as she prepped to walk streets and strut around in high heels today. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist, largely bundling up during her recent and very snowy Montana travels, was back to the skimpy action on Wednesday, having returned to her Dallas, TX base where the sun doesn’t seem to stop shining. Nastia, followed by 1 million on her Instagram, updated both before a shoot and during it, with the look being another knockout one. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos and video. Nastia, who comes as both a beauty blogger and major fashionista, posted quick stories today as she prepped for her shoot, seen getting glammed up by a makeup artist while in an unzipped hoodie that turned way more stylish with the street outfit – the 2008 all-around Olympic champion here highlighted her super-slim figure in flame-effect jeans and a tiny white crop top as she admitted she was “cold.”
Nastia might’ve been cold, but the fans were likely getting hot under the collar.
Nastia, who regularly shouts out brands including clothing label Revolve, kept it sporty and trendy, although an amusing moment did see the Russian-born star admit she was freezing as she clutched her chest and started running – doing it in high heels is no big deal for the star who used to back-flip for a living. Nastia was just 22 when she retired from professional gymnastics back in 2012. 2020, meanwhile, ended on a high for Liukin with her “Little Gymnasts” movie deal.

Nastia wrapped the year up at her swnoy Montana cabin, posting gorgeous white-blanketed snaps and plenty of herself in skiwear. She also revealed a ritual she undergoes every year.
“Every year on december 31st, i take time to reflect on the last 365 days. but with a year like this, where we all experienced more sad and negative things, looking back is difficult,” she told fans, but Nastia is a glass half full kinda girl.

Nastia, navigating the global pandemic like the rest of us, added: “Even still, i’m choosing to find gratitude in every moment, both the good and the bad. and while reflection is always necessary—as are the lessons that are learned in the grittiest moments—i’m looking ahead with optimism. so here’s to welcoming and living in the new year, happily.”
Nastia remains close to her 2008 Women’s Gymnastics USA team, last year making headlines for reuniting all six gymnasts. Scroll for Nastia forgetting her shirt by a dumpster!
