Olivia Culpo Defends Wedding After 'Pick-Me' Girl Criticism

Olivia Culpo Defends Wedding After ‘Pick-Me’ Girl Criticism

Olivia Culpo’s wedding day was intended to be the happiest moment of her life. However, the model found herself having to defend her nuptials against an unexpected wave of backlash.

In case you missed it, Olivia married NFL star Christian McCaffrey in a lavish ceremony in Rhode Island last weekend. Shortly after, TikToker Kennedy Bingham criticized Olivia’s wedding dress, describing it as lacking personality and giving off “pick-me” vibes.

Now, another content creator named Jess Weslie has shared similar criticisms on TikTok, specifically targeting Olivia’s wedding makeup. Weslie pointed out that Olivia’s makeup featured no mascara, eyebrow pencil, or lip liner, again accusing her of “pick-me” energy.

Jess’s post suggested that the coverage by Vogue, which highlighted Olivia’s wedding, focused too much on the bride’s makeup, leading to what she described as “weird vibes.” Responding to the criticism, Olivia defended her wedding look by commenting, “It was an interview… they asked me what my makeup was…”

Olivia approached Jess’s criticism more amicably, as Jess stated that she was a fan of Olivia. This was a significant shift from Olivia’s harsher response to Kennedy, whom she dubbed an “evil person” for her critical post.

Christian McCaffrey also weighed in on Kennedy’s criticism, echoing Olivia’s feelings by calling it an “evil thing.”

Olivia wasn’t just defending herself; she also stood up for Dolce & Gabbana, the designers of her wedding dress. In an Instagram post, Olivia described her gown as her “dream dress,” revealing she was moved to tears the first time she tried it on. Her message was clear: she would not tolerate negativity aimed at her special day.
