Olivia Culpo was on hand Sunday to watch her boyfriend, San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey, beat the Dallas Cowboys.
While everyone has obviously spent the past 12 hours talking ad nauseum about how Dallas embarrassed itself during the last play of the game, what has flown a bit under the radar is McCaffrey’s strong showing.
While 35 yards on 10 carries doesn’t jump off the page, McCaffrey’s touchdown run was the Niners’ lone offensive score on the day. It completely changing the complexion of the outing.
One person who got a real thrill out of watching McCaffrey do his thing this weekend was Culpo.
As an internationally-renowned model, Culpo knows a thing or two about leaving an impression with her attire. And that is precisely what she did with her outfit on Sunday.

For the most part Culpo then kept things low key for the game itself, but once it became clear that San Francisco would prevail, she immediately returned to posting.
This time, it was a celebration:
The NFL has a lot of increasingly popular significant others, and many of them had their chance to shine this weekend. Josh Allen’s girlfriend caused a stir with her wild photos. Joe Burrow’s First Lady won America over with her provocative outfit, too.
But in the midst of all that, Culpo really stole the show. Her fairly run-of-the-mill posts from the game did even better engagement numbers that Trevor Lawrence’s wife’s crazy party pictures.

With the 49ers advancing to the NFC Title Game, it is clear that Culpo is going to be a mainstay in the headlines for a few more weeks.
Much in the same way that Brock Purdy’s girlfriend has become a star online in recent days, just by virtue of her sheer proximity to McCaffrey, Culpo is going to be a fixture in the news cycle as well.
Will McCaffrey and Culpo get the opportunity to do a complete 180 from their Carolina Panthers days and hoist the Lombardi Trophy in 2023? Time will tell.
