Once an angel, forever an angel. Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio effortlessly navigated herself into the wedding space while closing Ralph & Russo’s Haute Couture show on Monday, January 23.

The Brazilian beauty, 35, best known for her affiliation as a longtime Victoria’s Secret Angel, looked breathtaking in a whimsical feathered design from the U.K. fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2017 Couture Collection. Naturally, the model–in her over-the-top pieces–looked right at home inside the famed Grand Palais in Paris.

The hand-embellished wedding gown, comprised of tulle and organza, was coated in glass bead hand embroidery, crystal and petit metallic floral appliqués. Ambrosio’s runway look included a dramatic, floor-length, silk organza cape that was stitched with ostrich feathers.

According to a release, the vision for the entire collection was to explore “the coexistence of urban and natural spheres, interpreting contemporary femininity through its opposites.”

The U.K.-based fashion house elaborated, “the reciprocal action of geometric lines, latex appliqué and the effortless ebb of frills, degradé ostrich feathers and diaphanous chiffon trains interconnect like longitudes and latitudes in homage to women; all.”

Ambrosio, meanwhile, has been engaged to Jamie Mazur for nearly a decade, and they’re still very much together. In May 2016, the model explained why she no longer wears her three-carat, square-cut engagement ring from the entrepreneur.

“Jamie has given me some beautiful pieces of jewelry that I could never part with – like the first thing he gave me, I still have – although I few of them I have lost. I’m pretty bad for that!’” she told Vogue UK. “I actually lost my engagement ring a few years ago, so I do want to replace it. I don’t know if he’s going to make me replace it myself since I lost it!”

In a separate interview, the brunette beauty explained why she and Mazur have yet to make their union official. “When I do the wedding, it’s gonna be very special,” Ambrosio previously told Extra. “So I want to take time for that.”
