We’ve had a girl crush on Nastia Liukin forever, the multi-talented twenty-something who boasts 5 Olympic medals and a long resume of gymnastics championships, TV appearances and, yes, her face on the front of a Wheaties box. The native Russian and current Bostonian now counts herself as a Naturalizer fan, having just shared the below images with us in which she rocks the Pressley sandal with denim and velvet for a casual but cool twist on holiday party dressing. Get her look by pairing your own Pressley with skinny black denim and a lace-trimmed camisole crafted from sumptuous jewel-toned velvet. The strappy shape is all party and pairs well with any kind of outerwear the weather demands. Finally, of-the-moment accessories like Nastia’s ribbon choker, round aviator shades and almost-black nail lacquer ensure that all eyes will be on you.
