Olivia Culpo puts on a leggy display in an ultra sheer mini-dress for Sports Illustrated bash… before changing into a hot pink number for dinner in Miami

She appeared in Sports Illustrated’s 2019 swimsuit issue.

And on Friday, Olivia Culpo spent her evening alongside a barrage of fellow SI bombshells as she was spotted striking a few poses at The Swim Week Kick-Off Party Hosted by W South Beach x Sports Illustrated in Miami, Florida.

The model, 27, kept her toned, tan frame covered in a sheer, long-sleeved frock punctuated with a slew of reflective silver embellishments.

She kept her belongings by her side in a tiny silver clutch she held against her trim thigh. 

To top it all off, she rocked a pair of strappy sequined sandals with a stiletto heel. 

Before appearing in the 2019 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, Culpo opened up to Fox News on her prep routine for the annually anticipated shoot.

Culpo admitted that her secret to feeling prepared for the issue was a ‘really strict diet.’

‘No sugar. No carbs. No alcohol,’ the former Miss Universe told the outlet. 

‘Basically, all protein and fiber and the only kinds of carbs I’ll have is sweet potato or greens or fruit.’

Though she turns up the dial before an important gig, Culpo says that she typically follows a ‘balanced’ lifestyle that isn’t centered on dieting.

‘I really don’t believe in dieting. I notice that when I have a shoot coming up or when I’m being really diligent about my diet, I can pretty much do it up until the day or two before and then I start to go crazy, and basically like self-sabotage myself.

‘As soon as I tell myself I can’t have sweets then I really want sweets.’

Models Katie Bock, Winnie Harlow and Anne de Paula were also in attendance for the glitzy shindig that included drinks, dancing and plenty of pink pool toys.
