Former Miss USA 2015, Olivia Jordan who was the first woman from the state of Oklahoma to win the nation's crown, has been taking it slow and steady since the Miss World pageant. The gorgeous 29-year-old blonde has dabbled into movies, TV shows, and modelling and was recently featured in a photoshoot for the famous Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is published only once a year, and was launched in 1946 and has come to be known as an arbiter of supermodel succession.

Olivia expressed her happiness on being a part of the SI Swimsuit Issue in an Instagram tweet: "I am so grateful to have been part of the 2018 SI swimsuit issue and will forever be thankful for every single one of you who has supported me while I chased this dream."

The former Miss USA sported 3 different looks, including a black bikini bottom with a glimmering silver top, a navy blue bikini with a strappy top and a knitted dusky rose one-piece bathing suit, all combined with beach-swept wavy hair.

Only one week left to vote so if you haven’t seen this picture 1000 times by now I need you to click that link in bio and vote your heart out so I can come back to @si_swimsuit next year!???????????????????????? This year’s issue is a call to action to- OWN IT! And for me, part of that is to own the fact that #siswimsuit isn’t just the next thing I’m crossing off the to-do list, it has actually been a dream for me since I was a little girl.???????? I have pursued this path since my first modeling agency meeting at age 14 and every subsequent agency meeting since then has included the words- “how can I get in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit”?? I look up to the fierce, empowered, liberated women who have modeled in these pages and then gone on to be game changers in their industries. I have followed the amazing creative team on social media for years, I have shot many different photo shoots trying to grab their attention and prove to my agents that I could do this, I have reached out to the bikini brands they use trying to shoot more in those brands to increase their odds of seeing me, I have vision boarded, manifested, and prayed for this and now I am finally living this life long dream. Please help the dream live on!???????????????? #vote #linkinbio #siswimsearch #shoot @mj_day @darciebaum @ja_neyney #photography @yutsai88 #mua @paulyblanch #hair @djquintero #swimwear @indahclothing
