Victoria’s Secret brides-to-be

Wedding bells for Hilary Rhoda and Behati Prinsloo


By Patricia Campbell

Barely-there lingerie wasn’t the only item being flashed at yesterday’s Victoria’s Secret show. Backstage, model Hilary Rhoda relished the opportunity to show off her eye-catching engagement ring.

The Angel is newly-engaged to her hockey star boyfriend of three years, Sean Avery.


Not that she’s the only VS bride-to-be…


Sitting front row at the spectacular New York show was Maroon 5 star, Adam Levine, cheering as his Angel fiancé, Behati Prinsloo took her turn to walk the runway.

The serial supermodel monogamist popped the question back in July, despite cooling things with Prinsloo not long before – dating Behati’s fellow Victoria’s Secret model, Nina Agdal in between.


ELLE is having fun imagining what kind of wedding each of the Angels will have. Bridesmaids could be any one of the Victoria’s Secret sisterhood: ELLE cover star Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss – and the hen night for each will, no doubt, be epic.

Being Angels, both Prinsloo and Rhoda are blessed with the sort of figures that can carry off any kind of wedding dress. With her grunge-y, off-duty style, Prinsloo’s likely to be a floral-garland-wearing bohemian bride – lots of lace – maybe even marrying barefoot. Suitable bridal designers include Alice Temperley, Delphine Manivet and Alberta Ferretti or something frothy and feminine by Marchesa.

Hilary Rhoda’s style, meanwhile, is more polished. She’s often pictured in clean, cocktail dresses and elegant gowns. ELLE imagines a nipped-in number by Monique Llhuillier, a classic Reem Acra, or a statement Vera Wang.
