Olympic track and field world champion Sanya Richards-Ross looked more like a model than an athlete at Peter Som’s early morning show at the Milk Studios on Friday. Dressed in a killer Som black body-hugging lace ensemble that revealed a hint of underpinnings, Ross said, “I love fashion, and I really love this,” gesturing to her outfit. “It’s really sexy but not too revealing.”

While other fashionistas might carry their lipstick and phone in their bags, Ross revealed her unusual accessory tucked away in a small black, snakeskin clutch. It was her Olympic gold medal, which she happily flashed for us. What a good sport!
