From launching a clothing line to being an Instagram star and more, Olivia Culpo has dipped her toes in a range of categories over the last few years. Over NYFW, Culpo stepped into new territory by walking her very first runway show for Zadig et Voltaire, also walked by mods Jordan Barrett, Hailey Baldwin, Presley Gerber, and more. We talked to Culpo about her runway debut.
How was walking your first show?
That was so fun and nerve-racking and I’m glad that it’s over. I was so nervous!
What did you do leading up to it?
I got really nervous and ate my stress vitamins. But I’ve been here all morning practicing.
Did you ask any of the pros for advice, like Hailey or Jordan?
I asked my friend Devon Windsor, but besides that, I actually watched recent years of this show to kind of get an idea of what the vibe is, and the feeling of the brand. I talked a lot to the creative director as well.
Is this something you want to do again?
Of course! I would love to do this again. So fun.
Was there anything challenging about the experience?
I guess just nerves, and handling that. Also making sure you are doing a good job of presenting the clothes. You wouldn’t want to put your hands in the wrong pockets or walk too fast, etc.
