Olivia Culpo made a breakout fashion statement at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant that stunned her fans and entertainment observers. The 2012 Miss Universe winner wore a revealing lace mermaid dress on the pageant red carpet which showed off both her attractive bosom and gorgeous legs. The dress was designed with sheer panels placed to draw attention to her gorgeous legs and create a risque image that left many fashionistas showering the girlfriend of Nick Jonas with praise.
Her wearing of this dress to the Miss Universe pageant not only made her one of the red carpet fashion winners but it also sent a loud resounding message to casting agents, producers and directors both on television and in film that this actress/model beauty is ready for some adult roles.
In the dress she looked like a leading lady star as she looked sexy, sophisticated and most importantly, comfortable. She did not look as if she was wearing an outfit that she was uncomfortable in wearing but instead looked like a celebrity who was accustomed to pushing the fashion boundaries and making appearances that viewers remember days, months and even years afterward.
One of the highlights of the Miss Universe pageant was when her boyfriend Nick Jonas went into the audience to sing to her during his performance. While singing he went down on one knee and approached her which resulted in her face showing full panic with the thought that he was going to propose to her on national TV in front of one billion people according to the story told by Nick Jonas to the U.K. newspaper 'The Sun' (E! - January 29).
Olivia Culpo did not get engaged during the 2015 Miss Universe pageant but with her sensational boundary-pushing look in the lace mermaid dress she did send a message to filmmakers that she is ready to take the next step in her career as an actress and thus some fans might look back at the pageant as the night when she made the fashion statement that got Hollywood to look at her as an actress with leading lady potential.
