Olivia Culpo will once again grace the pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, a magazine which has been teasing its Instagram fans with sneak peeks of the edition that will come out in a just a few weeks. On Monday, the magazine took to the popular social media platform to share a sizzling snapshot featuring the former Miss Universe, one which leaves little to the imagination.
In the photo in question, the 26-year-old is featured in a barely-there gold bikini that boasted a tiny triangle top — one which tied behind the model’s neck, barely containing her assets, drawing the viewer’s attention to her busty figure. Culpo teamed the top with a matching string bikini bottom that sat high on her frame, enhancing the contrast between her tiny waist and full hips and highlighting her hourglass figure. In addition, Culpo wore a silver chain around her hips, adding a little bit of sparkle and sass to her outfit.
The former Miss Universe was caught leaning forward as she supported her weight on her right thigh, striking a pose that further enhanced her flawless model physique. Her left elbow was resting on her hip as she looked fiercely into the camera — her lips slightly puckered in a seductive yet defiant manner.

Culpo was seen wearing her signature brunette bob swept to the side and styled down in loose, textured waves that cascaded over her shoulders. She was wearing a little eyeliner on her upper lids to help intensify her brown eyes, while bronzer accentuated the structure of her face.
The post — which Sports Illustrated Swimsuit distributed to its nearly 2 million Instagram followers — garnered more than 5,800 likes and dozens of comments within hours of having been shared. Users of the social media platform took to the comments section to praise the model’s figure, and to note their enthusiasm for the upcoming edition — and the Miami event which will precede it.
“She’s ridiculously gorgeous,” one user wrote.
“A natural beauty for sure,” another admirer chimed in, pairing the comment with a string of heart-eyed emojis.
Culpo has also recently made headlines for a less pleasant reason. Danny Amendola, wide receiver for the Detroit Lions and Culpo’s ex-boyfriend, ranted about his ex in a now-deleted Instagram post. In that post, he reportedly expressed that he prefers to live a private life, in contrast to Culpo who “chooses and wants to be noticed on the internet and in Hollywood to make money,” as Page Six noted.
According to Fox News, Amendola has since said the whole thing was a matter of “miscommunication.”
