Simone Biles takes a selfie in style with her fiancé Jonathan Owens.
The gymnast posted the photo of the two of them to her Instagram story yesterday as they prepared for a date. Biles and Owens jumped aboard a helicopter, flying over a cityscape.
The Olympian opted for a black suspender shirt, which she carefully tucked into her shorts. The fitted top was held up by four different straps, the angled bodice dipping to form a V. Biles donned faded denim micro shorts for her ride in the sky, the hem of the shorts slightly distressed. Biles wore delicate gold jewelry on her wrists and neck to add some shine.
On her feet, Biles wore black strappy sandal heels with mesh toes. The heels secured around the gymnast’s ankles, wrapped around themselves and tied in an arch.
The straps of the shoes wrapped forward, connecting to the square toes. Unexpected mesh detailing sets the heels apart from many styles Biles has worn before.
With a total of 32 Olympic medals, Biles is a powerful gymnast. But the world-class athlete received major style points for more than her athletic routines. Biles is a red carpet darling, often embracing feminine and classic pieces. In her gymnastics career, Biles was sponsored by Nike from 2015 to 2021. In 2021, she secured sponsorship with Athleta. Biles also launched a line of gymnastics leotards with GK Elite Sportswear and a line of backpacks and pouches with Caboodles.
