Nastia for Azria

Have you seen the Max Azria Spring 2009 ad campaign? It features Nastia Liukin (yes, that Olympic gold medal winning gymnast) in various flowing dresses and duds. She looks incredible. But, there seems to be something missing:

Nastia, where's yo face??

Each of the photos is absolutely breathtaking, but her face seems to be (almost deliberately?) obscured in each one. Is that really the case or do her gymnastic moves just naturally cover her face? Lubov Azria, creative director of Max Azria, was quoted as saying "we wanted someone iconic - someone timeless...[Nastia] was everything we were looking for" -- but perhaps her face wasn't part of the equation?

Either way, though, how insane is this pic from WWD (including her face and all)?
