After winning a gold medal in the 2008 Bejing Summer Olympics, Nastia Liukin has become a fixture on the fashion scene. From front row seats at New York Fashion Week to collaborating with Vanilla Star Jeans for a junior girls’ clothing line to guest starring on Gossip Girl, the teen gymnast is leaving her mark on the fashion world– and now, there are the pictures to prove it! Debuting in her first high-fashion campaign, Nastia poses for dance-inspired photos for Max Azria, the runway line under the BCBGMAXAZRIA brand. “For the Max Azria campaign, we wanted someone iconic –- someone timeless. We met Nastia at our runway show, and she was everything we were looking for. The Spring collection was inspired by movement and Modern Dance; she was perfect. It was meant to be, and the magic just sort of happened,” says Lubov Azria, Creative Director BCBGMAXAZRIA. Nastia’s pictures will be used for a lookbook, in-store imagery and online us. We will be watching for Nastia to reclaim her front row status this Fashion Week begining February 13. Tell us: What do you think of Nastia modeling for Max Azria?

I wish the skirt in the second one wasn’t so short, but both pictures apart from that are amazing!

To everyone who keeps asking “Why is her face missing?”, it’s because it’s a high-fashion shoot and designers like Max Azria tend to think outside the box when putting their ideas for these campaigns together. For this level of fashion, it’s about the clothes only – not the person wearing them, even if it is someone famous. It’s not Target, people!
