Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is proving less is more with her massive thigh gap. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist, fresh from both opening up her home to Architectural Digest and dropping her Pottery Barn interiors promo, is now showing off her killer figure inside her Dallas, TX home, with Friday bringing some selfie action from the 2008 all-around champion. Nastia, followed by 1 million, wasn’t just highlighting the physique, though. The blonde has chopped off her signature long blonde locks, and it’s a good look. Check it out below.
Scroll for the action. Nastia, known for her long locks, is long hair no more, with today bringing a return to choppier, beachy waves. Liukin, snapping herself from wood floors inside her impossibly-stylish, muted accent living room, was all legs as she posed in a skin-tight, cream minidress with a long matching duster, highlighting her thigh gap and Gold Medal legs while in heels.
“Hi again short hair,” Nastia wrote as the camera caught her peroxide long bob, plus her kitchen.
Nastia, who knows a thing or two about beauty and even retails her own $55 Celery Green Cream with Volition, offered no build-up, but plenty of effect as she also showcased the legs that have seen her trolled this year. 2021 brought the Russian-born star getting asked to post a pic of her “gross skinny chicken legs” – Liukin did not appreciate the skinny-shaming, making headlines for clapping back.
The selfie comes as the gymnast crams her IG with photos of her home, though. All thanks to Pottery Barn.
Addressing fans earlier today while in edgy tan leather and with flowers in her hair, Nastia wrote: “As most of you know, I recently moved back to Dallas and have been working on and designing my home since the summer. I am finally so, so excited to share more, starting with one of my absolute favorite rooms, my office – aka NLHQ.”
The star admitted she spends most of her time in her office, then thanking Pottery Barn for kitting her home out. See the cowgirl mini below!
Nastia was born in Moscow, but she moved to the U.S. as a child, living in both Louisiana and Texas. Now, she calls Dallas her home.
“I have owned homes and lived in so many different places, but this is kind of the first place that has truly felt like home,” she told AD, adding: “I feel like it has changed over time. I have kind of evolved. [But I’d say it weaves between] pretty, modern, neutral, and classic.”
