>> 25-year-old Lily Aldridge married Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, 29, yesterday evening during an intimate ceremony, hosted at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. Just family was in attendance — but some of Aldridge's fellow Angels, including Alessandra Ambrosio, reportedly joined the couple later to celebrate. Aldridge wore a custom strapless Vera Wang gown for the ceremony, with layers of chantilly and corded lace applique, and raw edge swirling chiffon detail at the back. [People, E!, Telegraph]

>> T's online director Horacio Silva, who has been working at the New York Times's fashion magazines for just over ten years now, has stepped down. "It's no secret I've been toying with the idea," he said. Silva was reportedly vying to replace Stefano Tonchi as T editor a year ago, a position which eventually went to Sally Singer. Silva noticeably doesn't mention Singer when saying he's grateful for the people he's worked with: "I have had the privilege of working with some amazing people, including three of the best editors T has gone through. Amy Spindler, Stefano Tonchi, and Andy Port." As for Silva's future plans, he says he has a number of brand clients lined up for consulting work. "It's an interesting time right now as the lines between editorial and advertising are becoming more and more nebulous, it'll be interesting to be in the forefront there," he explained. "I've also been threatening to write a book for some time." [The Cut]
>> Why have a Victoria's Secret contract when you can have your own lingerie line? Gisele Bundchen, who left her Angel wings behind in 2007, has launched Gisele Bundchen Intimates with Brazilian company Hope, set to hit 2,000 stores May 25. Bundchen kicked off the collaboration with a runway show in Sao Paulo last night, festooned in oversized bows and feather headdresses remniscent of a VS runway. The model, who still holds the crown for top-paid model (five years running now), and makes double her husband Tom Brady's salary, looks like she won't be giving the title away anytime soon.
