Welcome to latest edition of my Style Icon series, where I feature ladies with amazing wardrobes whether models, bloggers, socialites, or royalty. However, after almost 30 features this might be my very first pageant queen. Eight years ago Olivia Culpo won Miss Rhode Island, then won Miss USA, and then was crowned Miss Universe. Since then the 28 year-old has had her hand in many cookie jars including modeling, acting, and influencing – have you SEEN her Instagram? She made headlines a few years ago dating Nick Jonas but today I only want to talk about her killer wardrobe.
She does a great job mixing high and low pieces from affordable options to including Fendi and Nina Ricci. So you could get the best sense of the variety take a look at her street style and looks at New York Fashion Week to red carpets spanning the Emmy Awards to Cannes Film Festival. Here are some of her best looks over the last few years:

The only sad part in putting together today’s post is there are no fantastic outfits from events from the last year. I was actually reading an article this week that TV shows, movies, and books are going to ignore the quarantine / lockdown that was 2020 and is the start of 2021 because no one is going to want to relive that. I do have hope that Olivia Culpo and the rest of my Style Icons will be returning to fabulous events soon!
