The 29-year-old model's sister Aurora took to Instagram to claim that the airline officials at the boarding gate asked her to "cover up" her black sports bra which she had worn with black cycling shorts and a longline cardigan.

But fans were torn over whether Olivia should have covered up, with one asking: "What I don’t get is why is it so hard for you to put a shirt on instead of just a bra?"

"Since when is a bra whether sporty or not appropriate on a plane?" asked another.

However one follower joked: "Waiting to see what she puts on @oliviaculpo to fly home. I know it will be epic."
