Olivia Dunne looked like an absolute dream on the 58th annual Academy of Country Music Awards red carpet in Frisco, Texas, on Thursday. The LSU gymnast and 2023 SI Swimsuit model wore a gorgeous backless silver gown with side cut-outs that perfectly flaunted her athletic figure.

She paired the sequined dress, which featured a thigh-high slit up the front, with platform silver strappy heels. The 20-year-old athlete styled her long blonde locks in loose waves that hung down her back and kept her glam beautiful but simple. She opted for bold lashes, subtle winged eyeliner and a nude lip. As for accessories, she wore a single pendant necklace around her neck.

Dunne, who posed on the red carpet with Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin, is a huge fan of country music (as well as country boys) and regularly posts content about one of her favorite artists, Morgan Wallen.
