Olivia Culpo has had quite a year when it comes to hairstyles. From architectural up-dos to pin-straight bobs to ethereal braids, each time she stepped out, she dared to experiment with bold, stand-out looks. And although Culpo admits she’s experienced her fair share of beauty blunders (like burning off an entire section of her hair!), this year, she truly dominated the red carpet with her versatility. So when we sat down with the former Miss Universe and new face of GHD hair styling products, there was no question we had to get her to spill all the details about her most memorable styles of the year.
As it turns out, Culpo admitted that some of her most memorable looks have been inspired by the ’90s looks of the Spice Girls.
“This sleek, super high ponytail was inspired by Sporty Spice and then the outfit was inspired by Victoria Beckham, Posh Spice,” Culpo said of her look at the SoBe Las Vegas Bash at the SLS Hotel. “This hair was totally posh for Vegas. This was like my Vegas moment!”

The 24-year-old star also channeled Beckham’s iconic look with the sleek straight bob she wore to the Gallant performance at the W Los Angeles. “I was wearing this tight, metallic dress — I could not breathe in this dress,” she said. “And I said, ‘I feel like Victoria Beckham and Posh Spice. I told [my hairstylist, Justine Marjan] I wanted to try the Posh hairstyle.”
