LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne has already made a name for herself in the NCAA world. The 20-year-old is the highest-paid female college athlete in the country, and her NIL portfolio—and seven-figure salary—is only increasing. With her 13 million followers across social media, she is slowly taking over the influencer sphere, as well.

The 2023 SI Swimsuit model is proving to be a talented model, and an inspirational, multi-faceted woman who wants to encourage other women to keep winning. The New Jersey native is featured in Elle magazine’s August issue and she just shared a super fun behind the scenes TikTok from her stunning photoshoot.

“i cant believe this is real life!!! @ELLE (US) #foryou #magazine,” she captioned the video.

Dunne shifted from pose to pose and donned a sheer red Courrèges bodysuit with Et Ochs jeans and red Manolo Blahnik mules. She opted for a simple glam look and a voluminous blowout for an overall sophisticated, yet chic vibe.

The video was set to the sound of Nelly Furtado’s “Maneater.”

“To see a woman winning? People sometimes have a lot to say,” she told Elle about the trolls and criticism she has faced as a result of her fame. “If you’re a woman at the forefront of something, when you’ve got eyes on you, people are going to downplay your success and say that you’re not doing it right, that you don’t deserve all the opportunities. I don’t want to say ‘F you,’ but the best way to get that to stop is to keep being successful at what you’re doing, because your success, and love for what you do, will outshine any of that.”
