Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is stomping around pantless in electric boots and going all feathers. The 31-year-old five-time medalist and 2008 all-around champion, fresh from inking a movie deal in “Little Gymnasts,” today proved she’s the little fashionista, both by posting a YouTube video showing her Zara haul and, for a way leggier finish, going blue in feathers. Nastia, followed by 1 million on Instagram, updated just in time for the weekend with her Gold Medal legs bare, and you can check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Nastia, who recently clapped back at a troll over her “gross skinny chicken legs,” was proving the haters can hate. The Russian-born star, cramming her IG stories today with promo for her new YouTube video, snuck in a quick throwback to earlier this month, one that saw the Facebook App partner highlighting her never-ending legs in a bright blue and fluffy feather getup complete with matching knee boots.
“@NASTIALIUKIN IN @PARISTEXAS IT ELECTRIC BLUE NAPPA BOOTS,” Luikin wrote in her repost.
The photo, showing Nastia seated and on a cow-print rug, went stylish and super-girly at once. The star who recently admitted she’s actually a member of a Facebook group called “50 Shades of Pink,” ditched her favorite color, but she was hardly looking masculine, posing with one leg folded, a gorgeous smile, luscious blonde locks, and earrings.
Nastia, who last year “brought bubble baths back for 2020,” might be in demand with mega brands like Olay skincare and Facebook, but it looks like she’s supporting local businesses.
Nastia is continuing to carve out a career for herself despite having retired aged just 22 in 2012. The Moscow native, gearing up for the launch of her Harley & Me dog brand, already boasts leotard collabs, just yesterday announcing a hair accessories one.
“Did you know I have a collection with @tele_ties? they are the cutest hair ties ever ? and they stay in place when I bust out the occasional front aerial ? – check that out on my reels. shop them now (link in bio),” she wrote.

Nastia has opened up on quitting the beam so young. Raised by two Olympic gymnast parents, the “Dancing With the Stars” alum was living in training gyms from a young age as her parents couldn’t afford childcare while they trained.
“I felt so lost for a good year. I gained probably 10 to 20 pounds, because when you stop doing something and just go cold turkey your body doesn’t even know what to do,” she told The Cut in 2016.
