Simone Biles attended the 2021 MTV VMAs on Sunday, September 12, and she looked gorgeous in a one-strap, baby-pink dress. In fact, I’d venture to say she was channeling a Disney princess. An Olympic medal-winning Disney princess.
See the look for yourself below.
The 2021 MTV VMAs ceremony was the first major event Simone Biles has attended since the Tokyo Olympics, in which she withdrew from a few categories after experiencing the “twisties.” The 24-year-old still won a bronze and silver medal at the Games, though, and she opened up about her experience on Instagram.
“Definitely not the way I planned the olympics going but I wouldn’t change anything for the world,” she wrote. “I’m proud of myself and the career I’ve had thus far. this olympics doesn’t erase the past accomplishments I’ve achieved nor does it define who I am as an athlete. I’ve pushed through so much the past couple years , the word quitter is not in my vocabulary. for some of you that may be how you define me but keep talking because I can’t hear you over my 7 olympic medals which tied me for the most decorated gymnast EVER as well as most decorated american gymnast.”
She echoed this sentiment in a separate IG post, writing, “Not at all how I imagined or dreamed my second olympics would go but blessed to represent the usa. I’ll forever cherish this unique olympic experience. thanks everyone for the endless love and support. I’m truly grateful – leaving Tokyo with 2 more Olympic medals to add to my collection isn’t too shabby!”Not too shabby indeed.
Since the Olympics, Biles has been living her best life, taking some much-needed R&R both with friends and her football player boyfriend, Jonathan Owens. This gorgeous VMAs look is just another examples of her being iconic.
