For our star-studded April/May 2014 issue, we enlisted supermodel Selita Ebanks to try on some of the season's most glamorous wedding dresses. And while the Cayman-born, New York City-raised beauty has modeled everything from couture gowns, to teeny bikinis, and even a $4.5 million gem-encrusted Victoria's Secret bra, she'd never put on a wedding dress until this shoot.

"I definitely felt like a bride," she says. From the stunning (and we mean s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g) photos from the fashion spread (below) you could never tell that she's never worn bridal. She absolutely glows in the gem-encrusted open-back, tulle ball gown, and romantic capelets we asked her to wear (there's even a built-in necklace in there!).

Here, in a fashion spread styled by Soraya Dayani, Selita Ebanks shows you how to rock the season's most glamorous gowns — effortlessly.

P.S. here's a few more fun facts about Selita that you may not have known from her time as a Victoria's Secret angel.

1. She's a tech mogul: This month her new app, SASS (sassbyselita.com), launches in cities around the country, linking users with top local hairstylists and makeup artists. Not that's a service every bride could use.

2. She's a goodwill ambassador for the nonprofit Shine On Sierra Leone: "Our maternal-health-care hospital saves 3,000 lives a month,"she says.

3. She's a karaoke queen: "I will beat you at a Beyoncé contest, hands down," she says.
