Classically beautiful, Olivia Jordan is even more than an all-American girl: She has been the all-American girl. After a life-changing reign as Miss USA 2015, Olivia has since taken social media and the modeling world by storm, with 450,000 Instagram followers and counting.
After beginning her career at age 14, Olivia transitioned into the pageant world at age 23, already an incredibly seasoned model looking to leave a positive footprint. “I was looking for an opportunity to feel I could use my voice and cultivate public speaking skills,” says Olivia. “As a young model I felt like my worth was dependent on how I looked and how much I weighed; I wanted to deepen that and find a platform where I could use my voice.”
Find a platform she did. After her time as Miss USA, Olivia has received a growing number of job opportunities, which she says allows her to focus on how she uses her image and what she promotes. “Having a social presence has increased my modeling opportunities, so now I can be picky and only work with companies and people that share my value system,” she explains.
Needless to say, when the Hammitt team first met Olivia, sparks flew. Our Spring 2017 photo shoot was a celebration of natural beauty and joy, full of laughter and dancing. Olivia says the shoot felt like working hard and playing hard could be the very same thing: “I love to model for a brand that lets me be myself and enjoy the shoot day. Hammitt did exactly that.”Discover Olivia’s favorite bag, the Getty in Coast/Brushed Gold.
