Olivia Dunne’s steamy Sports Illustrated Swimsuit spread continues to set the internet ablaze.
In a post shared Tuesday on Instagram, LSU’s superstar gymnast gave fans an intimate look at the inner workings of her photo shoot, which took place in Puerto Rico back in January.
Captioning the photo “bts with @si_swimsuit,” Dunne, a 20-year-old woman, is seen wearing a cutout black one-piece from La Reveche while a hair stylist works on her hair.
“Beach Barbie,” One fan commented in the comments.
Commentary on another then “So beautiful.”
“Model Queen!” “Exclaimed one supporter.”
Dunne made her highly anticipated Sports Illustrated Swimsuit debut in this year’s issue.
It was a very whirlwind process to bring the shoot to life.
“We went to Puerto Rico, it was right when my gymnastics season started, and they usually take six days to shoot it, and I obviously can’t take six days off from the beginning of my season,” Dunne has recently been recalled.
Upon getting the go-ahead from her coach — one day off, in total — she jetted off to the dreamy destination.
“I prayed for good weather and then I shot and I came back to school,” Dunne said.
Dunne, the NCAA’s highest-earning female athlete with A valuation of $3.4 Million at NIL, the East Coast’s leading magazine, has been busy with the promotion of the newest issue.
She not only celebrated the launch of the magazine in New York with fellow LSU athlete Angel Reese and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model, but also took part in an event that lasted a whole weekend in South Florida.
“Getting the opportunity to be in SI Swimsuit was such a dream of mine and when it happened, I actually could not believe it,” Dunne previously Tell the publication.
What’s next for LSU’s rising senior?
Making the best of her summer.
Beyond hitting the beach for some fun — and flips — in the sun, Dunne recently jetted to Nashville with pals and has spent time at the gym, where she’s shown off her insane flexibility.
