Simone Biles celebrated the holidays in a series of festive looks. Posing in a mirror selfie shared on Dec. 25, the decorated gymnast kicked off Christmas Eve in a striking, emerald-green velvet dress. From PrettyLittleThing, the figure-hugging minidress came embellished with dramatic ruffles along the off-the-shoulder neckline. As Biles wrote in her caption, “let’s hear some commotion for the dress.” She jazzed up the piece with minimal accessories, only wearing silver bracelets, a necklace, and rings, in addition to her massive, oval-shaped engagement ring from Jonathan Owens.
While she chose a glamorous look for the night prior, on Christmas Day, the 25-year-old athlete opted for a cozy, coordinated outfit with her fiancé. In a series of loved-up photos with Owens, the two lounged on the couch in front of a beautifully adorned Christmas tree, wearing matching fleece pajamas from Skims as well as Ugg boots. The pair appeared comfortable as ever in the ultra-soft, checkered sleepwear.
Though the holiday just passed, Biles and Owens have been in the spirit for quite some time now. The couple staged a “cocktails at home” theme for a holiday photo shoot earlier this month. Biles wore a cherry-red silk minidress accessorized with a red wide-brim hat, while Owens sported casual winter whites. In November, they also shared a glimpse at their adorable engagement shoot, in which they matched in classic white tees and ripped denim. We can certainly expect more couple style moments to come ahead of their wedding in 2023.
