Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager Defend Olivia Culpo’s Wedding Dress After Criticism

Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager have come to Olivia Culpo’s defense after her wedding dress was met with negative reviews.

“(Culpo’s) wedding dress is clearly stunning and beautiful — just like Culpo herself — but her wedding dress is really causing a stir online,” Kotb began on Tuesday’s episode of “Today with Hoda and Jenna.”

The presenters hailed Culpo’s long-sleeved Dolce & Gabbana ballgown as “beautiful” and “very classic,” but admitted the “internet was divided” on the look.

“I don’t like reading negative comments from trolls. I really don’t. What do you think? I don’t like reading anything negative,” Kotb, 59, responded to haters.

Bush Hager, 42, agreed that Culpo, 32, looked “beautiful” and rewarded Kotb with Hugo Spritz cocktails, asking: “Why does anyone feel like they can comment on the way she’s dressed?”

“One of the most beautiful women in the whole world!” Kotb said of the former Miss Universe.

Bush Hager chimed in that some people “are sitting in their basements and saying it’s ‘too covered.'”

“You can’t win!” Bush Hager continued, while Kotb added, “Everything is beautiful, live your life.”

The TV presenters discussed Culpo’s dress after she and her now-husband, Christian McCaffrey, criticised the influencer, who said her gown had “no personality”.

“Wow, what an absolute badass you are. I hope no one ever tears you apart like that because it’s incredibly painful. I love this dress and it was everything I wanted and more,” she commented in the influencer’s video last week.

McCaffrey, 28, also came to his wife’s defense, writing under the same video: “What evil things to post online. I hope you find joy and peace in the world like my beautiful wife.”

The model defended her look after another TikTok user called her a “pick me” girl when she told Vogue magazine she “skipped the mascara, lip liner, and eyebrow makeup.”

“It was an interview…..they asked me what makeup I was wearing………………………..” Culpo commented under the video last week.

Culpo and McCaffrey tied the knot in front of close friends and family in Rhode Island on June 29 — a little over a year after he proposed.

After the ceremony, Culpo changed into an off-the-shoulder chiffon dress for the reception and into a bodysuit with a sheer cage miniskirt for the afterparty.
