Accomplished, smart, and gorgeous, Olivia Culpo is a walking embodiment of the American Dream. Raised in the sleepy city of Cranston, RI, she went on to become Miss Rhode Island, then Miss USA, and then Miss Universe, all in 2012. Earlier this year she reached another pop-culture summit when she graced the cover of Sports Illustrated. And oh yeah: She’s also a Philharmonic-grade cellist and the founder of her own cocktail-in-a-can beverage line, Vide.
Recently, Olivia enlisted her sisters Aurora and Sophia to help plant the Culpo flag in the apparel world. Their latest collab with Macy's in-house brand INC is called, fittingly, CULPOS X INC.
The girls have spent a big chunk of this year getting CULPOS X INC up and running. But they still found time for lots of home-and-hearth family fun. Read on to see what the Culpo sisters were obsessed with during quality quarantine time.
Turkey Day is just around the corner, and since home is where the heart—and work and school and everything else—is this year, we’re looking for ways to make things a little more interesting. Enter cookie-place cards, from the company Celebrations in the Kitchen. They’re homemade, with a little help.
“Celebration in the Kitchen has a lot of really great kits that you can buy,” says Olivia, who has developed a love for baking and decorating cookies. This kit comes with pre-made cookies, and everything you need customize them for loved ones, including 6 colors of icing, sprinkles, and doodads. A really special way to personalize the table this year. But good luck getting your family to save their place cards for dessert.

Sophia also fell in love with baking during quarantine, and who better to guide her through than the inimitable Barefoot Contessa, aka Ina Garten. “Olivia and I were are actually stuck at home with her boyfriend's mom who has every, Ina Garten cookbook, every single one. And I kind of fell in love with all her recipes,” Sophia says. How perfect, then, that The Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That? is just off the presses. With the Contessa’s help, even newbie bakers can craft quick desserts as easy as they are gorgeous. (And while you’re at it, why not get a head start on Christmas, with a couple of extra gift copies?)

It may be a discovery for most of us, but in Boston, Joanna Chang’s Flour Bakery is an institution. Olivia and Sophia went to college in Boston, and Sophia says she ”would go to her bakery all the time.” They loved Chang’s legendary baked goodies so much that they did a live Instagram session with her, during which they learned about her enticing new book, Flour, which includes recipes for nearly 150 sweet treats, from Milky Way Tarts to Dried Fruit Focaccia. Is your mouth watering yet?

It’s not just the kids who are led into temptation—and overindulgence—this time of year. But now you can treat their agita (and yours) with Tumeez Organic Tummy Soothing Pops. Yummy and made with healthy organic ingredients, Tumeez were a win-win remedy when Aurora’s son had an upset stomach. “He thought he was getting a special treat but he was actually getting something healthy,” she says.

Just because you’re spending a lot of time at home doesn’t mean you have to give up on style. The Culpo sisters bring you their Sparkle-Fringe Top with Side-Stripe Jogger so you can feel as good as you look. A little rhinestone-embellishment, a touch of shaping in the shoulder—you’ll look amazing but feel as good as you do in PJs. Says Olivia, “It's just really fun and comfortable.”
And there’s more where that came from: the Culpos’ signature biker shorts, hoodies, tops, and sweater dresses are ready for couch or club (when the time comes) and available right now at Macys. In classic black, white or (the perfect) red—and in fun, sophisticated animal prints—this is a line you can live in.
