Christian McCaffrey fires back at influencer over Olivia Culpo wedding dress critique

Written by on July 4, 2024

(People) – Olivia Culpo is opening up about her choice to wear a modest gown on her wedding day.

In an interview with Vogue publishedon Saturday, June 29 — the same day as her Rhode Island nuptials to San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey — the former Miss Universe, 32, reflected on her choice to wear a full-coverage gown when she walked down the aisle.

“I didn’t want it to exude sex in any way, shape or form,” Culpo said of her Dolce & Gabbana crepe ball gown, which featured a crew neck, long sleeves and buttons down the back.

“I wanted it to feel effortless and as if it’s complementing me, not overpowering me. There’s so much beauty and simplicity,” she added of the gown, which she paired with a 16-foot-long lace veil, as well as minimal makeup.

“When I think about Christian and what he loves and the moments that he thinks that I’m most beautiful, it’s absolutely in something like this: timeless, covered and elegant,” she added.

The model also opened up to Vogue about the process of designing her gown, which was heavily influenced by the couple’s decision to get married in a church in the coastal Westerly neighborhood of Watch Hill. Although Culpo had visions of long sleeves and a more modest look, she said she couldn’t find exactly what she wanted online — which only inspired her more.

“That’s what made me even more excited about this vision,” she told the magazine.

Culpo worked with a Dolce & Gabbana designer to sketch out her dream dress, and the look came together on their first try.
