Seventeen-year-old Olympian Diana Nikitina from Latvia is serving a serious look in Pyeongchang, South Korea, with this bejeweled black bodysuit — a choice that has pantsuit nation on their feet for a standing ovation.
While female competitive figure skaters traditionally have opted for short dresses and skirts over leotards, Diana went for a powerful, head-to-toe black catsuit that was as sexy as it was badass. Naturally, Twitter is living for it. The style choice combined with her music choice ("Soldier of Love" by Sade) made for a unique, sassy, and all around awesome routine that the crowd was loving.
While she may not have placed particularly high score-wise, she's officially an Olympic fashion icon. We're hoping to see a lot more of Diana's career — and bodysuits — in the years and Olympic Games to come.
