Olympic gold medalistSimone Biles, 24, looked ultra glam when she stepped out at the 2021MTV Video Music Awards in a pastel pink dress. The world renowned gymnast stunned in the one-strap, fitted gown, which featured a high slit. “I’m more nervous than when I’m competing,” Simone revealed on the red carpet. “I’m out of my element.”
Her award show appearance marked the second time Simone has attended the annual event. She last made an appearance at the 2016 show alongside fellow gymnasts Aly Raisman,Madison KocianandLaurie Hernandez. Although she looked totally stunning, the athlete has previously revealed she’s committed to breaking down beauty standards.
“I’m tired of everything in life being turned into a competition, so I’m standing up for myself and for everyone else that has gone through the same,” Simone revealed on Instagram in February 2020. “Today, I say I am done competing versus beauty standards and the toxic culture of trolling when others feel as though their expectations are not met because nobody should tell you or I what beauty should or should not look like.”

Jonathan previously revealed thatgetting to know each other duringthe early days of COVID strengthened their bond. “We ended up hanging out right before the pandemic,” Jonathan toldTexas Monthlyin June. “It was one of the few times in her life where everything was just shut off and she couldn’t do anything. So we used it to get to know each other — really get to know each other. It created our bond and made it stronger. Now I’m so thankful.”
