Miss USA Olivia Culpo Crowned Miss Universe, Wore Sleeves


Last night, Miss Rhode Island USA Olivia Culpo was crowned Miss Universe 2012, making her the first American to win the title since 1997. 

The Boston University sophomore tearfully accepted her tiara (which fit perfectly over her style blogger topknot) in a giant, tulle Georges Hobeika gown with sleeves—a rarity in pageants. Just look at her comparatively bare-armed competitors.

Let's see that thing in action.

Maybe it was all that extra fabric that won her the title. Or it could have been her answer to the question, "What is something you have done that you would never do again?" 

Nothing! Olivia Culpo regrets nothing! Not even picking on her siblings, because YOLO. You have to be a little bit ruthless to win Miss Universe, right?
