The Kiwi model has also appeared in advertising campaigns for Sephora, Joe Fresh, Bebe, and Uniqlo, and worked with photographers such as Benjamin Lennox, Kenneth Willardt, Daniel Jackson, Tesh, Steven Sebring, Jason Kibbler, and Coliena Rentmeester, among others.
Select editorial features starring Olivia include the international editions of Vogue, Interview, Elle, Marie Claire, Amica, and Another Magazine.
