Olivia Culpo just broke the Internet with her Maxim Mexico black-and-white cover for November 2019.

Using a plain white sheet to cover her assets, the actor looked oomphalicious in the special icons edition for the month.

Photographed by Gilles Bensimon, the cover has been styled by Caroline Christiansson.

In an Instagram post, Olivia shared her experience of working on the cover and wrote: 'Thank you Maxim Mexico for making me your November cover girl.

'I was a little nervous to post the second photo because it's a bit nude and I get insecure when people comment on me showing too much skin.

'But the more I thought about it the more I realised that there's nothing admirable about letting the opinions of others control and manipulate my own thoughts and perspective.

'Because the truth is, I am very comfortable with the way a body looks in its most natural state.

'I have always been a free-spirit in that way. I think the shape and complexity of the human body is so beautiful.

'To me it's art, and I think the practice of capturing it in photography is a way to celebrate it.

'So first I would just like to apologise if baring skin offends anyone, because I completely understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

'And second, I would like to say I am proud of the fact that I have no problem with the human body in its most vulnerable state.

'I feel empowered knowing that this is my opinion, and that my opinion may be unique. I also feel grateful that I have a job that lets me occasionally celebrate and express this.'
