Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is hanging around unbuttoned before most people are up. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist is fresh from touching down in Palm Springs, CA, with stories on her Instagram alerting her 1 million followers both to the arrival and, it would seem, a big tease. Nastia, who has not revealed what she’s doing out West as she ditches her Dallas, TX base, was up before 5.14 a.m. and ready for a shoot today. Check out the action below.
Scroll for the video. Nastia, who left her Russian birthplace as a child and now lives in Dallas, was all rolling suitcases on Monday as she arrived in Palm Springs, with Tuesday morning seeing the 2008 all-around champion already dolled up before breakfast time.
The video showed Nastia indoors and in a dressing room and actually kicking off even earlier. Makeup palettes were shared, with Liukin time-stamping her post at 4.34 a.m, only peeping her toes in slides. There was more, though.
Quick to follow was some selfie action, with Nastia seen getting glammed up by her hair and makeup crew while in a plunging, very unbuttoned, and stylish black shirt. Nastia was holding her morning coffee, also shouting out her team and writing: “I’m always between a donut and a juice cleanse @paige_davenport,” adding:
“AND I’VE NEVER HEARD ANYTHING MORE ACCURATE 5.14 AM.”
Anyone wondering what the gymnast is up to got a massive clue as she then posted a permanent update.
A gorgeous poolside shot of Nastia in ripped jeans and a skimpy white rib-knit sweater followed, with the beauty blogger and serial entrepreneur telling fans:
“Something is coming. something that has been a DREAM. something that has been on my vision board for years…. now after years of manifesting, hard work, and the best team ever – it’s freaking happening ?,” also adding: “Beyond thankful and lucky for the most INCREDIBLE team who have helped bring this this vision to life.” See the bikini below!
Nastia, who runs her The Muse Collective empowerment startup alongside retailing her very own $55 Celery Green Cream with Volition, has plenty going on. March has seen her in the news for fronting home retailer Pottery Barn, with the Facebook App partner also gearing up to launch her Harley & Me dog care brand.
“I’m also really cautious about the brands that I work with. It’s really cool the way that brands are shifting as we move into this very digital-heavy world,” Nastia told Forbes in 2019. If gymnast Simone Biles sounds familiar, scroll for her massive bikini thigh gap.
