Adelaide’s own Olivia Rogers has been crowned Miss Universe Australia, in a well-deserved win that has all of Adelaide celebrating. The 25-year-old speech pathologist and artist is an advocate for Toybox International, and regularly speaks out about her previous struggles with depression and anxiety. She also runs a hugely popular Instagram for her adorable dog @malamutemoosh, and boasts a dedicated and loyal following on her own account @oliviamolly.

Olivia was a late entry, being asked to compete back in December. She moved to Melbourne two weeks after, never thinking she would make it through to the finals.
Adelaide label D’Lelle designed her blush pink gown, which will be available soon to hire from One Night Stand Adelaide. Girls wanting to get their hands on this one had better be quick, because we can see it booking out months in advance.
We had such a wonderful morning yesterday at the Ronald McDonald house in Parkville, drawing, painting nails and talking to the incredible children, families and staff 🌟This gorgeous girl Rose, is such a brave, creative, intelligent young girl – I wish we could have stayed for longer 💖 @rmhparkville @missuniverseaustralia.official
Anyone who’s ever spoken to Olivia knows she’s the whole package; incredibly smart, unbelievably kind and, of course, beautiful. We can’t wait to see her follow Jennifer Hawkin‘s footsteps and take on the rest of the world by winning Miss Universe!
