Lindsay Ellingson Tied the Knot!

Wedding bells were ringing for another Victoria’s Secret Angel over the weekend!

All-American catwalker Lindsay Ellingson tied the knot with her longtime love Sean Clayton in an intimate ceremony in South Carolina on Saturday.  The pair reportedlyexchanged rose gold wedding bands in front of 85 guests in before taking to the dance floor for their first dance as a husband and wife to Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”

“Words can’t express the joy and happiness we have as we start the next chapter of our lives together with the support and love of our families and friends,” the couple said in a statement to E! News.

Of course, Lindsay looked nothing less than perfect walking down the aisle in a custom-made dress by French designer Sophie Theallet, a glimpse of which could be seen in a photo posted to her Instagram page on Sunday.  Further photos from the wedding will be published in the October/November issue of Brides magazine.

“I didn’t want anything poufy,’ Lindsay told Grazia prior to the big day. “It’s matte silk and straight down so nothing crazy. I’m not one of those girls who say “I want to be a princess for the day, with all the attention on me”. I just want to be comfortable, especially because July in South Carolina means it’ll be pretty hot!”

The couple, who met at a New York party six years ago, became engaged on Thanksgiving this past year after Clayton, a medical sales rep, presented Lindsay with a custom-made ring featuring an oval-shaped diamond set in rose gold, which she later described as “absolutely perfect.”

Modelinia wishes the best for the newlyweds, and we can’t wait to see their wedding pictures!

Style Sightings: Gisele Gets Showered in Rose Petals, Poppy and James Take Ibiza and More!

If we learned anything today, it’s that models don’t need a red carpet to have a buzz-worthy good time.  From New York to Ibiza, there was no shortage of model sightings on Thursday, each one looking more fun than the last.

Gisele Bündchen spent the day showered in roses, only this time, it was Tom Brady who was showing her the love.  The Brazilian supermodel was actually on a photo shoot in Miami when she was spotted dancing around while being showered with red, white and pink rose petals.  Dressed in a preppy navy-striped top, a white skort and black-and-gold sandals, Gisele was nothing but smiles as she let her ombre tresses swing wildly in the wind.  Perhaps this is all a warm-up for her highly-anticipated appearance at Sunday’s World Cup final.  As previously reported, the football-loving model will escort the coveted trophy during the last few minutes of the game between Germany and Argentina, along with Spanish soccer player Carles Puyol.  Hey, they don’t call it the beautiful sport for nothing!

Meanwhile, in Berlin, Bar Refaeli took some time away from the red carpets at Berlin Fashion Week to enjoy some quality time with her brother Dor.  The 29-year old model was seen coming out of Bottega Veneta wearing a pair of ripped black skinny jeans, a basic grey tee, brown Rag & Bone boots and matching satchel bag.  The look was quite the departure from the previous night’s look on the red carpet the Laurel fashion show, but if you ask us, the Israeli super looked stunning all the same.

Back in New York City, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend almost passed for an ordinary couple as they were seen making their way out for a romantic dinner at Bar Pitti in Soho.  Chrissy, who’s new show “Snack Off” premiered on MTV earlier this week, looked relaxed in a louche grey tank paired with a black check-print maxi skirt and gladiator sandals.  The couple surely had a lot to celebrate that night as the singer new music video for “You & I,” which also stars his wife, premiered earlier that same day.

Across town in the West Village, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Julie Henderson joined Jessica Szohr, Hannah Bronfman and Jamie Chung at the opening of the Birchbox store event.  Dressed in a lovely white ICB dress, the model looked picture-perfect as she stopped to pose for selfies with Bronfman before making her way to the custom BYOB (that’s ‘Build Your Own Box’) station for some goodies.

Lastly, Poppy Delevingne and her hubby James Cook looked as in love as ever on the beach in Ibiza, Spain.  The couple could hardly keep away from each other as they enjoyed a dip in the ocean before walking hand in hand back to their chairs, where they were joined by a group of friends.  Clearly, the honeymoon stage is still far from over.

Look of the Week: Bar Refaeli Radiates Summer Glamour at Berlin Fashion Week

Let us start by saying, there was a lot of best-dressed action happening this week! Ming Xi looked flawless at the Fendi dinner in Paris; Miranda Kerr looked her typical runway-ready self on the streets of New York; Poppy Delevingne was perfectly put-together at the Bulgari cocktail event. And yet, there was something about Bar Refaeli‘s gorgeous hot pink jumpsuit spotted at Berlin Fashion Week that we just could not ignore!

The supermodel was the picture of summer elegance at the Laural Fashion show on Thursday, stepping out in a perfectly-tailored jumpsuit by the design house.  The one-piece ensemble was nipped at the waist and featured a plunging neckline, which did well to showcase the stunner’s enviable curves.  Not content with her bright look, Bar also paired the number with a bright yellow woven clutch, pale gold heels and several statement rings. We also have to commend the Isreali super for making this look even better by keeping her makeup and hair natural and relaxed, and for reminding us why she’s still one of the world’s most beautiful women…ever.

Cara Delevingne Gets Into the Ring for Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2014 Campaign

Providing further evidence that boxing, models and fashion all go hand-in-hand, Chanel has sent Cara Delevingne to the ring— the site of the label’s new Fall/Winter 2014 campaign.

Unsurprisingly, Cara took to Instagram to reveal the first look at her latest adverts, in which she thanks Karl Lagerfeld for the stunning images.  Draped in the French house’s trademark pearls, wrapped in its iconic pastel tweed separates, and flashing a peek at her latest upper back tattoo, Cara is the perfect mixture of feminine and masculine, pretty and tough, and perhaps, just a bit rebellious.

It comes as no real surprise that Cara was chosen to front the campaign, as she remains one of Lagerfeld’s favorite model muses both on and off the runway.  Though she was absent from the designer’s latest couture show, Cara has previously starred in a number of the label’s RTW and couture shows, most recently closing both its haute couture 2014 show and its Fall/Winter 2014 show in February this year.
