Olivia Dunne is now a recurring athlete on the ESPYS red carpet, and her look last night was even more fabulous than last year’s.

The LSU gymnast attended the award ceremony in Los Angeles on Wednesday, July 12, and served ultimate old Hollywood vibes. She showed off her muscular arms in a backless black gown featuring an asymmetrical one-shoulder neckline, figure-skimming silhouette and small single slit. The floor length dress included carefully place cut-outs to reveal Dunne’s toned abs and back.

The 2023 SI Swimsuit model, who was photographed by Ben Watts in Puerto Rico earlier this year, accessorized with black peep-toe heels, a dainty gold necklace and thin hoop earrings. Her blonde locks were half-pinned back and the ends were styled into perfect bouncy curls for a glamorous vibe.

The New Jersey native opted for a full face of makeup, including dramatic lashes, terracotta eyeshadow, bronzed cheekbones and a glossy taupe lip.

The 20-year-old, who is the highest-paid female college athlete in the country, introduced the award for Best Athlete, Men’s Sports. Fellow LSU Tiger and women’s basketball champion Angel Reese won the ESPY Award for Best Breakthrough Athlete.
