Olivia Dunne was photographed by Ben Watts in Puerto Rico. 

Photographer Ben Watts is truly the gift that never stops giving. The visual artist, who captured Olivia Dunne during her SI Swimsuit photoshoot in Puerto Rico earlier this year, has an endless collection of film camera and Polaroid pics from the model’s beachside feature. Don’t get us wrong—we’ll never complain about more unseen, exclusive content of the blonde beauty.

While on location, the 21-year-old stunned in a series of edgy, Wednesday Addams-inspired printed bikinis and one-pieces featuring super funky and unique cut-outs and silhouettes.  Watts also worked with the LSU gymnast just a few weeks ago in Porto and the North, Portugal, as Dunne is set to appear in the 60th anniversary issue next May as a rookie.

The New Jersey native looked one with nature as she posed in the sand, hugged palm trees and splashed through the water. She showed off her adorable, bright smile to the camera as well as her soft gaze and powerful smolder. The Livvy Fund founder, who is dating MLB Pittsburgh Pirates player Paul Skenes, flaunted her super toned figure and sun-kissed glow in the snaps.

“Last year was my first year [with SI Swimsuit], and all the girls welcomed me with open arms—I consider them my SI family now,” the TikTok star said about returning to the brand. “Everyone is just so friendly, and we just have a blast on set.”
