Golden-clad Nastia Liukin, flanked by actress Elizabeth Banks and tennis star Maria Sharapova, takes in a fashion show Monday at New York Fashion Week.

Gymnastics' biggest star is basking in the celebrity spotlight in the Big Apple this week.

On Monday, Olympic all-around champion Nastia Liukin got front-row billing at New York Fashion Week before appearing on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien."

On Tuesday morning, Liukin will appear on "The View." In the afternoon, she and her father, 1988 Olympic gold medalist Valery Liukin, will ring the closing bell at the NASDAQ Stock Exchange.

Her Olympic teammate Alicia Sacramone also attended some shows, but Liukin sat between actress Elizabeth Banks and tennis superstar Maria Sharapova at designer Peter Som's show Monday.

"It's such an honor to be here," said Liukin, clad in gold pumps and a gold Peter Som dress. "I've never been to anything like this."

Liukin, winner of nine world medals, won five medals at the Olympic Games last month in Beijing. She is appearing on the Tour of Gymnastics Superstars, which kicked off Sunday in Reno, Nev. Its next stop is Sept. 19 in Phoenix.
