Hilary Rhoda’s ivory & green Carolina Herrera wedding gown: fab or fug?


Former pro hockey player Sean Avery married model Hilary Rhoda over the weekend in Water Mill, New York. Everyone found out about their wedding date and location last week, when Avery was arrested for criminal mischief and possession of two acetaminophen and oxycodone, seemingly without a prescription. The criminal mischief charge was because Avery was apparently throwing objects at passing cars. When the cops arrested him, he had the oxy on him. So, it was… weird. A weird story. A weird pre-wedding story.

But since the show must go on, Sean and Hilary went through with it and we have some of the photos of her wedding gown. The bride wore Carolina Herrera – it’s an ivory column with “grosgrain detailing” that looks black and green. Weird colors for a wedding gown, right? I mean, I could see having one or the other – like, some small green details or some small black details, but not all together on what’s supposed to be a wedding gown. It looks more like a red carpet look than anything else.

Anyway, congrats to the happy couple. It seemed like a lovely wedding and it’s nice that they weren’t stressed out about the paparazzi. While I have some questions about them as a couple, I wish them the best. Especially since the groom seems to like to throw sh-t at moving cars while hopped up on oxy.



I love you, my sassy ladies 🎉💘

    It’s a lovely gown but doesn’t read bridal at all to me. Not a fan.

    He seems like a bizarre guy.

  2. snarky mcsnark says:

    I know he’s an ass but I have always had a thing for him! Good luck to both of them!

    • carol says:

      Yeah me too. I think it’s kind of sexy that he is a former nhl player who interned at Vogue. He’s like a cute bulldog. Don’t like his violent streak though

      • Tiffany says:

        He has also taked about the rumors of his sexuality as well, with a bit of self deprecation and sort of matter of fact. He has shown LGBT support for a long time as well.

        There have been some interviews and stories he has written that makes me wonder why he goes out of his way to be such a a-hole when has some semblance of…not being one.

    There is no way I would marry someone that threw stuff at passing cars. 😒

    • lucy2 says:

      Seriously, that kind of nonsense can cause an accident, and hurt or kill someone. What kind of person, an adult especially, does that?

    • Hally says:

      There is no excuse for that, and so close to his wedding? What an ass. I feel for Hilary, the universe was trying to get her to dodge this bullet, but she went through with it anyways.

      Not to rag on a bride on her special day, but she looks awful. She picked a perfectly terrible gown to marry a terrible man. I wish her well.

  4. Joss RED says:

    Damn, I’d never guess that fug thing is a Carolina Herrera!

    And the guy looks like a manly (and insane) Cristiano Ronaldo…

    • Alexi says:

      Carolina Herrera usually does exquisite work – this looks like a bad teenage sewing project. My guess is that the bride really wanted something specific. As for him – he vibes me Bobby Flay….

    • Tash says:

      I was surprised. Herrera always has elegant and simple designs and this ain’t it.
      Haha great comparison…both guys look plastic to me.

    • lucy2 says:

      I was surprised that was a CH also. I’ve always loved their designs, except the weird phase they went through a few years ago. This dress doesn’t do much for me, and DEFINITELY not for a wedding dress.

  5. Jegede says:

    That gown does not do her justice IMO.

    Hilary Rhoda is so so beautiful.

    She’s like an athletic Elizabeth Taylor.

  6. Tiffany says:

    Hilary is a absolutely stunning woman. And I like her dress.

  7. Yellowshaba says:

    Legit that is one of the ugliest dresses ive ever seen…he probably picked it out, he is a strange cat

  8. M.A.F. says:

    Who and who were the same thoughts had yesterday when I saw this story on another site. I don’t follow hockey and the models of today don’t hold up to the models of the 80s. I figured this woman some sociallite and him a washed up athlete and they always got into public arguments.

  9. Hannah says:

    He’s overly plucked and moisturised like a less attractive, pasty christiano Ronaldo.

  10. Eden75 says:

    Growing up in a hockey town and having dated a few hockey players, they can be a$$hats, no doubt about it. Sean Avery takes the cake though for being the biggest douche bag. I can’t even look at that t**t and not get angry.

  11. Nev says:

    What a face she has.

  12. Colette says:

    Marrying a guy who was just arrested for drug possession.Smart move.I wonder if his buddy Andy Cohen attended the wedding

  13. Jenns says:

    Good luck, honey. Sean is the worst.

    • antipodean says:

      I agree, lots of luck to her, she’ll need it. This is some seriously damaged person. Years ago he f**ked over the gorgeous Rachel Hunter and didn’t even have to grace to own it before he was on to the next model du jour. Lucky her though, she dodged a bullet there. A very bad case of closeted entitlement, the worst kind.

  14. QQ says:

    Besides the fact that the Groom’s Brow seem to be on Back order, she has to be a little off her gourd to go through this wedding Gay rumors aside, this homie doesn’t seem to be in all working order for a wedding ( makes me think of Britney Griner and Glory Johnson Pre wedding spectacular)

  15. Talie says:

    I can’t believe anyone would marry him… he is a known nutjob. Like, he seems to have many, many problems. I saw him on WWHL back when Andy was dealing with him and he was the worst guest ever.

  16. Not my taste, but miles better than Erika Christensen’s wedding dress, which was basically a fishnet.

  17. LAK says:

    That IG photo of the bride is extremely unfortunate.

    • smith says:

      RIGHT? And SHE posted it (not some angry bridesmaid who had to deal with those vastly unforgiving dresses. No where to hide your dodgy bits).

      The entire relationship and wedding (capped by that IG pic) is … odd.

      Stay tuned for more from these two (methinks).

  18. Ankhel says:

    The green detailing and the white fabric does not appear to move well together? She’s got bunching and wrinkling happening even when she’s standing. Also, the collar is to hefty for a sleek wedding gown. Interesting idea, bad execution. But, she looks lovely anyway.

  19. DK says:

    He posted on Twitter a photo of a list of his prescribed drugs from his pharmacy which includes the two on him at the time of his arrest. So unless the photo is a forgery, he had them legally.

    • Bridget says:

      As far as I am aware, Twitter isn’t interchangeable with a court of law. If it’s a real Rx he can provide it to the necessary parties.
