The 24-year-old former beauty queen turned model recently opened up about her rocket from communications major to Miss Universe.
“I didn’t grow up doing pageants at all. I was at college studying communications and acting and I just wanted to work on my stage presence,” she revealed to The Coveteur. “I looked at other people who were serious actors and many of them had actually started in pageants, like Halle Berry for example.”
Olivia added, “That’s the only reason that I entered my first pageant when I was 18 years old; it was Miss Rhode Island. And then, a year and a half later, I won Miss Universe. I went from Miss Rhode Island to Miss USA to Miss Universe. It was pretty crazy.”
FYI: Olivia also wore a Nasty Gal jacket and Robert Clergerie shoes.
