As a former Miss Universe, this woman is no stranger to uber-glam, sequined ball gowns. But on Thursday, Olivia Culpo walked the catwalk for Revolve's Stand Up To Cancer charity fashion show in Los Angeles, and proved that she is just as capable of dominating the cosmos in a barely-there black dress. And I do mean "barely there" — the plunging neckline dipped so low that to even refer to it as a neckline seems too far-fetched a notion, and the sky-high slits that basically started at her waist seemed like the slightest breeze would result in scandal.
While an amateur would have been intimidated by all of that, Culpo rocked it like a true pro, along with fellow models for the night Jaime King, Sarah Hyland and Louise Roe, who were also on hand to strut their stuff for SU2C.
Think you could handle wearing a dress like Culpo's show look? All the pieces worn in the show are part of Revolve's special 61-piece capsule collection, and are actually really reasonably priced from $44-$550. The best part? A whopping 30 per cent of sales from the capsule collection will be donated to the charity.
She showed off her look in a selfie before the fashion show:
While the pic is captioned "Shoes on shoes on bags on bags," you'd be forgiven for barely noticing the accessories. This dress is hot!
While she wore a polished, pulled-back ponytail in her selfie, her hair was in loose waves on the runway later in the evening, and if you ask me, her 'do perfectly matched the Cali vibes of the show's host city, and it also really complemented the silhouette and movement of the dress.
This isn't the first time Culpo has worn a shockingly low, high, or barely there ensemble like it ain't no thing.
1. Suit + No Shirt
She wore a pinstripe suit by Acne to celebrate Cosmopolitan's 50th anniversary in October. It's very office-chic, from the bun down to the pointy shoes. All that's missing? A shirt. Can't win 'em all.
2. Another sleek-and-shirtless black look
This time, it was a body-hugging jumpsuit. It's definitely one of her fave looks for fall.
3. Abs out at NYFW
She attended the Baja East fashion show during NYFW wearing a look from the label, which has a slew of celeb fans including Solange, Kim K, and of course, Culpo. While on-fleek abs are definitely a plus for rocking this look, Culpo wasn't sweating it; she wore the same outfit to head out for a big meal at Catch NYC with friends right after the show. And here I am, just trying to find pants with an elastic waistband.
4. Business up front, party in the back:
Here's the front of the dress. Business as usual, right? And BAM, here's the back:
Culpo work this black and navy number at a party in Dubai celebrating Cadillac's partnership with the super buzzy young label Public School.
5. Futuristic fashion statement:
Gaga, is that you? Culpo wore this white-hot gown at the Miss Universe Pageant in January, which she attended to support her (now ex) boyfriend Nick Jonas, and apparently to also show the world that she'll always be Miss Universe.
6. Channeling the Winter Olympics
#Speechless. This on-stage look is perfection, from the strappy bodice to the fur-trimmed flouncy skirt. The back-up dancers have the perfect reaction.
