This Victoria's Secret Angel now has both her wings and a wedding ring! (Lucky girl...) Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana — whose credits include the lingerie giant, Versace, Ralph Lauren, and Sports Illustrated — just married Diego Ferrero in the Maldives. So what does one wear for a beautiful beachy wedding like that? Well, a bridal white bikini naturally! Wait — what?!
Yes, for her wedding day, Fontana wore nothing save for a completely sheer sheath, which showed off her sexy swimsuit underneath. (See the gorgeous photos below.) Only a Victoria's Secret model could get away with wearing a bikini to her wedding. Actually, scratch that! What's stopping you from exchanging your big tulle ball gown for an itty bitty bikini?
Should we really be so surprised that a bride who has graced the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue would wear a swimsuit to her nuptials? And look damn good in it, we might add! On August 9, the supermodel and her sweetheart headed to the sandy shores of the Maldives to tie the knot, setting the stage for their beachy big day with message-in-a-bottle inspired wedding invitations. According to WhoWhatWear, the sheer sheath Fontana wore for her "I do's" was a custom design by Agua de Coco, a Brazilian swimwear label (no shocker there, right?). The daring look included leaf-motif beading along the super sheer tulle, with Fontana rocking a strapless bikini top and high-waisted bikini bottom underneath. How's that for a unique bridal style?
In her wedding photos (below), Fontana and her new hubby can be seen embracing in the sand and surf after getting hitched under a heart-shaped arch adorned with sea grass — even standing on a set of wooden stairs in the middle of the ocean. But hey, if a unexpected wave splashed up, who cares? This bride's wedding ensemble is totally conducive to taking a quick dip after the "I do's."
Maybe there's actually a few more benefits to this out-there wedding day look than we originally thought... If you get overheated from dancing the night away, you're all set to cool off in the surf. No need to even do a quick change. Hmm...
