The 17-year-old Olympic hopeful was joined by team mate Agnes Zawadzki for the shoot, among her other team mates as well.
It was just announced that Gracie changed coaches ahead of the 2013 Sochi Winter Olympics and signed with Frank Carroll, who previously coached Michelle Kwan and Evan Lysacek.
“(Shizuka) Arakawa [of Japan] left her coach two months before the Olympics, and that worked out for her,” Gracie shared about changing ahead of the games. “I don’t feel nervous at all, just excited about the opportunities this season holds.”

Gracie Gold, Christina Gao and Agnes Zawadzki take over the ice at the 2013 ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships held at Osaka Municipal Central Gymnasium on Sunday (February 10) in Osaka, Japan.
The three Team USA Olympic hopefuls showed off their skills with a short skate on Saturday (February 9) and a free skate.
Christina, 18, placed fourth overall, just after Japan’s Mao Asada, Akiko Suzuki and Kanako Murakami. Gracie, 17, took the sixth place spot.
“It wasn’t a very good performance,” Gracie shared with press after her performance. “I have a lot of time to prepare for worlds and think I will give a much better performance at worlds. I was nervous for my skate and was shaky on my practices. I wasn’t at the top of my game.”
