For­mer Miss Uni­verse Olivia Culpo

YOU’RE SIT­TING DOWN TO THE PER­FECT MEAL. WHERE ARE YOU, WHOM ARE YOU WITH AND WHAT ARE YOU EAT­ING? I kind of miss my home right now, so my per­fect meal would be at Back 40, the restau­rant in Rhode Is­land that I own with my fam­ily. I’d be din­ing with all of my fam­ily and friends. WHERE ARE YOUR FAVOURITE PLACES TO SHOP? I love a lot of stores like Bar­neys, In­ter­mix, H&M and Top­shop, and I love shop­ping on­line at Re­ I pretty much go ev­ery­where. WHAT DOES YOUR DREAM HOME LOOK LIKE? Any­thing on a beach. A nice beach, though, doesn’t mat­ter what coun­try. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ITEM IN YOUR WARDROBE RIGHT NOW? I just got a pair of re­ally great-look­ing red Ba­len­ci­aga boots. They’re booties, so they’re short, but the heel is big. IF YOU HAD A THEME SONG, WHAT WOULD IT BE? To­day, I’m think­ing my song would be Crazy in Love by Bey­oncé. ARE YOU A COL­LEC­TOR? IF SO, WHAT ITEMS DO YOU COL­LECT? I think I am be­com­ing a hand­bag and shoe col­lec­tor – I’ve only re­alised that lately. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CITY IN THE WORLD? I re­ally can­not pick one. Ev­ery sin­gle place that I go to has some­thing dif­fer­ent to of­fer – dif­fer­ent peo­ple, dif­fer­ent food, dif­fer­ent weather – it’s so hard to pin­point one. WHAT ARE YOUR GO-TO BEAUTY PROD­UCTS? My go-to beauty prod­ucts would be any­thing from SK-II, La Mer and Dr Bar­bara Sturm. I also love Mac li­pliner, and I re­ally like Koh Gen Do foun­da­tions. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST-EVER LUX­URY PUR­CHASE? I think it was a pair of Uggs – they were fur-lined, and I re­mem­ber when I wore them to school, every­one made fun of me, be­cause at that time they weren’t as pop­u­lar as they are now. WHAT, IN YOUR OPIN­ION, IS THE UL­TI­MATE LUX­URY? Qual­ity time with your loved ones. WHAT IS YOUR DEF­I­NI­TION OF GOOD STYLE? Style is feel­ing con­fi­dent in what you’re wear­ing and what you’re do­ing. WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF FASH­ION AD­VICE YOU HAVE EVER RE­CEIVED? I’ve re­ceived so much great fash­ion ad­vice. I guess the best ad­vice that I can take away is to just keep an open mind. Some­times you look at some­thing and think, ‘I would never wear that,’ or ‘that looks so strange’, but style isn’t about what’s trendy; it’s about ex­press­ing your­self and mak­ing it fun, and be­cause of that there are no rules, and you can’t judge it. TALK US THROUGH YOUR BEAUTY ROU­TINE. Since I’m al­ways work­ing and on the go, my typ­i­cal beauty rou­tine is very sim­ple. I usu­ally wear a tinted mois­turiser and li­pliner, and I curl my eye­lashes, and that’s it. But for red-car­pet events when I’m get­ting hair and make-up pro­fes­sion­ally done, it takes about two hours.
