DUBAI: US model Olivia Culpo this week turned heads at the Endometriosis Foundation of America’s 11th Annual Blossom Ball wearing a black gown by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad.

The former Miss Universe wore a pleated organza ballgown with lace trim from the couturier’s ready-to-wear spring/summer 2023 collection.

Culpo took to Instagram to share a video from her speech at the New York City event.

In her caption, the model explained what endometriosis was. She said: “It’s a disease where tissue that resembles the lining of the uterus is present outside of the uterus. It causes chronic inflammation and scarring leading to pain and/or infertility.

“It’s a complex disease and affects so many women around the world,” she added.

Culpo revealed in 2020 that she had been diagnosed with endometriosis in a series of posts that were shared to her Instagram Story.

She has since partnered with the Endometriosis Foundation of America to raise awareness about the condition.
