Cote d'Ivoire’s Olivia knows how to pull off a bold outfit, most of her looks have been striking and vivid. She looked like a queen on the day of the dinner with the mayor as she wore a silky emerald, green dress paired with head turning jewelry. Her fashion game is unmatched, and she proved her worth as she won the Top Model title at the pageant.
