Figure-skating Olympic gold and silver medalist Kim Yuna tried a vintage look during her photoshoot for Vogue Korea. Known for her elegance on the ice, Kim Yuna seamlessly transitioned her natural grace and poise into an editorial setting. The images that were released depicted the former skater with a black-and-white vintage feel; from long to short, Kim Yuna was able to successfully pull off different outfits. Furthermore, unlike the usual updo that many have seen Kim Yuna sport while on the ice, the two-time Olympic medalist had her hair styled in defined waves, reminiscent of a 1920’s flapper.
Perhaps it was her familiarity with practicing for long hours, but Kim Yuna did not show any signs of fatigue throughout the eight-hour photoshoot. In a short interview, Kim Yuna expressed her anticipation for her future activities as she said, “Thinking about how I am going to be living a completely different life, I am excited and also afraid. However, my anticipation is greater. I will still be working in sports. Since figure skating is something that I know the most, I won’t let go of it, and I hope to be able to help my juniors.”
The issue of Vogue Korea featuring Kim Yuna will be released in June.
