Rampage has tapped actress, model and 2012 Miss USA winner Olivia Culpo as the new face of its fall ’16 campaign. Culpo said she was thrilled to follow in the footsteps of Gisele Bündchen, Irina Shayk and Chrissy Teigen.

“It’s an honor to be included in the group of women who have been the face of Rampage in the past,” she said.

How do you define your personal style?

“It’s very clean and streamlined. I like monochromatic looks, clean lines and well-tailored pieces. I strive to wear pieces that will still look good in years to come. Audrey Hepburn did that so well. You could wear most of her wardrobe today, and it would not look dated.”

Do you have a favorite pair of shoes in your closet?

“I love a pointy-toe pump. I have them in tan, white, black and nude. They go with almost everything. I also like my collection of over-the-knee boots. They add sexiness to simple jeans and dresses.”

Do you have a favorite shoe memory?

“I remember buying my first pair of [Christian] Louboutin at a sample sale. I was so excited. If you saw them today, you would laugh because they are over the top. Maybe I will bust them back out someday.”

What do you love most about fashion?

“Fashion is like art. It is such a creative outlet for me to pair pieces together for a finished effect. Designers, new and established, inspire me because so much time and effort goes into each piece. I respect fashion and the emotion and story that it conveys.”
