Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is hanging around empty fields and pulling off skimpy farm girl vibes. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist, recently in the news for snowy Montana travels over the holidays, is now back in her Dallas, TX base where the sun shines and the temperatures permit, well, just about anything. Nastia, followed by 1 million on her Instagram, posted a quick shoot preview on Sunday morning, and it wasn’t seeing the Russian-born star downtown. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Nastia continues to make headlines for keeping her retired body in jaw-dropping shape – while October 2020 brought an anorexia storm as Nastia was asked how she feels about “promoting borderline anorexia looking bodies,” the waters are calmer now.
The photo showed Nastia amid abandoned fields and under semi-cloudy skies while flaunting her stunning figure in a skin-tight, racer T-back gold dress, with an arched back extra showcasing the 2008 all-around champion’s slender silhouette.
Nastia, who gazed ahead and wore a low bun for a chic finish, shouted out Natalia Fedner, couture designer to stars including Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez, with a mention made to her stylist, too.
If you don’t live inside Nastia’s Instagram, the account has been making headlines. Nastia reuinted the entire 2008 Women’s USA Gymnastics team ahead of the holidays, with Christmas bringing the beauty blogger in picture-perfect and snow-blanketed snaps as she went ski bunny and joked about an alternate Olympic career.
Nastia is known for sharing her thoughts and keeping the captions honest. Shortly before the New Year, the gymnast revealed an unusual ritual she undergoes every year, telling fans:
“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.”
“I’m looking ahead with optimism. so here’s to welcoming and living in the new year, happily,” she added.

Nastia, raised by two Olympic gymnast parents and living in their training gym because childcare was too expensive, has been proving that retiring aged just 22 means nothing in terms of the skill-set. Liukin’s late 2020 activity brought a return to training as she geared up for a friendly fitness fight-off with fellow gymnast Alicia Sacarmone Quinn, with the bubblegum-pink spandex looks coming complete with Nastia back-flipping across a trampoline, also walking on her hands in tiny shorts.
