Happy news for one of Frockwriter's favourite models
It was hard to miss the diamond sparkler on model Louise van de Vorst’s ring finger at the David Jones Spring/Summer 2013/2014 showcase on Wednesday night. Although it seems most news outlets did.
Backstage before the show, she excitedly shared the news that she has just become engaged to Nathan Webster (pictured, below).
Webster is an Australian-born, former world Top 10 professional surfer – whose nickname is “Noodles” – and who these days heads up the Billabong-owned RVCA brand in Australia, which is sold at General Pants, among other outlets.
It appears to have been a bit of a whirlwind romance for the duo, with both parties having ended longterm relationships with significant others in early-to-mid 2012.
In January last year, Webster was still apparently dating Alexandra Spencer, the model behind the 4th and Bleeker blog who, coincidentally, used to be represented in Australia by van de Vorst’s model agency, Chic Management. Spencer has since moved over to Priscillas. We noted that Spencer and Webster were an item in this blog post back in 2009.
Congratulations. We wish them all the best.
