Olivia Dunne’s January SI Swimsuit photo shoot in Puerto Rico with photographer Ben Watts resulted in a completely stunning gallery of images. The NCAA athlete and social media star’s looks on location were largely inspired by the moody and grungy vibes of Netflix’s hit series, Wednesday. 

On June 7, the 20-year-old LSU gymnast shared a behind the scenes snippet from her time on location in the Caribbean island. In the sunny Instagram snap, Dunne looked off into the distance while hairstylist Anthony Cristiano tended to her wavy blonde locks with a hair brush. She wore strapless black one-piece swimsuit by La Revêche with rose-adorned cut-outs.

“bts with @si_swimsuit 🌞✨,” Dunne captioned the post she shared with her 4.1 million IG followers.

Tons of Dunne’s friends and fans quickly chimed in to the comments section.

“YES,” wrote friend and fellow 2023 SI Swimsuit model Olivia Ponton.

“absolutely ate,” noted LSU Tiger teammate Elena Arenas.

“INSANE🔥🔥😍😍,” Katie Feeney applauded.

“Ummmm yesss😍😍😍,” Hannah White added.

“The most gorgeous girl ❤️,” Lexi Zeiss sweetly stated.

“Gorgeous!!!! 🔥🔥,” Peng-Peng Lee declared.
