Olympic Gymnast Nastia Liukin Goes Braless In An Edgy All-Black Ensemble: ''Tis The Damn Season'

Nastia Liukin referenced a pop song title inspired by a beloved Christmas carol in the Instagram share that she posted on Sunday, December 13, but she went with a dark and edgy look instead of apparel that was merry and bright.

In a pair of two pics, the former Olympic gymnast was decked out in an all-black ensemble. Her outfit was partially comprised of an asymmetrical wrap skirt with a fitted design. A large button on the waist secured the piece's front flap in place. The skirt's hemline was high enough to show off a significant amount of Nastia's slender thighs.

She teamed the chic garment with a crisp tailored blazer. The jacket appeared stretchy, and its pointed shoulders created a strong silhouette. She completed her outfit with a pair of combat-style ankle boots with textured detailing and silver D-rings. She wore the laces undone on the ankles for a loose fit that gave her look a grungy edge. Her footwear also featured thick lug soles with red accents on the bottom. While the shoes only added a little extra height to her frame, the petite athlete's svelte legs still made her look as tall as a supermodel.

She accessorized with a gold nameplate necklace and a pair of dark sunglasses with sharp geometric frames. Her pale blond hair had a naturally wavy look.

Nastia's first photo wasn't quite as racy as her second. She stood outside on a raised walkway with a few large trees in the background. She leaned against a thick concrete railing that had been painted off-white. She posed with her left forearm pressed against her stomach and her other arm raised up so that her curled fingers were even with her neck. Her chin was upraised as she smirked at the camera, looking confident and cool.

Her festive, feisty caption seemed to reference the title of the Taylor Swift song "'Tis the Damn Season" from her new album Evermore, which was noted by a few fans of the pop star in the comments section of Nastia's post. Others lavished the Olympic gold medalist with praise.

"Love these! So glam!" read one response.

"Smoking hot," another fan commented.

"Flawless. You're absolutely stunning, Nastia," gushed a third admirer.

This wasn't the first time Nastia experimented with a braless look. In another popular pic, she displayed her bare décolletage in an unusual strapless dress with a revealing neckline.
