Attending the Swatch POP Collection launch party at the grand opening of the Times Square flagship store in New York City, the former Miss Universe opted to cover up her curves in a long, flowy shirtdress by L’Agence, keeping things simple but sexy.

She showed only her flawless legs in the silky black number, which had double thigh-high splits, button-front closures, breast flap pockets, and a belted waist.

Olivia accessorized the look with a few rings, a black clutch, and a watch from the new Swatch collection. She drew further attention to her stems with a pair of knee-high cage sandals.
