Louisiana State University gymnast Olivia Dunne uploaded photos of herself dressed in fashionable clothing on her Instagram profile. In addition, she discussed her recent achievement as a featured model in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Earlier in the year, “Livvy” graced the pages of the famed publication.

In April, via a video on Instagram, she announced her excitement about this career highlight, emphasizing the model role as a lifelong ambition. She understood how important it is to be a good example for young girls who look up to her and Sports Illustrated. They both want to inspire the next generation.

On Monday, she posted an image from her SI swimsuit shoot alongside a snap of a large cookie decorated with the word “rookie.” Additionally, she uploaded a story on Instagram where she was seen wearing a snug, all-gray ensemble, and in a TikTok, she appeared in a sleek one-piece black jumpsuit. Livvy’s 4.5 million followers quickly filled the comment section with praise.

Compliments ranged from “Stunning and gorgeous” to “You sure look lovely,” with one person naming her “Hottest woman in America.” Dunne is going to be a senior at LSU and will compete in gymnastics competitions in the SEC. She is becoming very popular, which is making big changes to her time in college.

The gymnast recently opened up about her safety concerns and recalled an incident that shook her. She received a threat message from a stalker who seemed to know where she was and when she had class. Following this development, she started carrying around bodyguards for her safety.
