Olympic all-around gymnastics gold medalist Nastia Liukin is about to become a household name.  This fall, she will appear in Cover Girl ads, and Vanilla Star Jeans is launching Nastia Liukin Gold jeans and tops for the holiday season.  She has a stake in, a tween web site that sells fashion and beauty products, home decorations, and books.  She's endorsing Wheaties, she plans to design activewear wit GK, and (what I'm stoked about) she has an appearance sometime this season on Gossip Girl.  Maria Sharapova invited her to NY Fashion Week where she will attend Peter Som (no worries, my full stalking details will be updated later) and best of all, she's humble.  "You work so hard for this, and you're getting so many opportunities, and now is the time to take those things because they don't last forever... People are beginning to notice me everywhere, I don't think I'll ever get used to that".  With only a handful of athletes  that have successfully crossed the sport-to-fashion boundary, be sure to keep your eyes peeled on what happens with Nastia.
