Adding a new Snapchat story recently, Olivia shared a full-length mirror selfie captioned,my red carpet fit for tmr.” However, concealing nearly the entire apparel, she covered the picture with four enlarged GIFs. While three of them read ‘CENSORED,’ the biggest one in the center displayed a pixeled blur.

Despite disclosing that she has sorted her outfit, Dunne has still kept her much-awaited look a mystery. A year after she donned a stunning black lace gown at the 2023 SI Swimsuit Issue event, the recent snap shows her wearing silver heels and hints at maybe another year of her gracing a black-colored fit.

Nonetheless, it’s official that the SI Swimsuit rookie’s ETA on the red carpet is just around the corner. Beaming with excitement, Olivia has added another Snapchat story captioned ‘See you soon NYC.’ With it, she announced her plans to be en route to New York City, where the event is likely to take place just like the previous edition.

The recent years have seen Livvy’s evolution as a multi-media star in the making. With a stellar gymnastics record to her name and reputed brand endorsement deals, it is apparent that she is juggling her athletic career whilst living her social media dream.

Evidently, Olivia Dunne’s detour into the fashion world has been a successful one. However, she has still maintained silence about her upcoming gymnastic endeavors. As per the eligibility criteria post the COVID-19 pandemic, Olivia stands permitted to return to LSU for her fifth season. But, there is no official confirmation of her stance. While her return hangs in the balance, she is constantly upping her ante as a social media icon with back-to-back partnerships.
