When it comes to one-piece swimsuits, Olivia Munn seems to have a type. She's worn a bright maillot like this one before, and she's also made a statement with an eye-catching plunging neckline. While vacationing in Hawaii with friends, Olivia showed off her cheeky, tomato red Gooseberry design ($99) from all angles, and we give her major props for pulling off the fitted piece with such a sexy cut.
