The model said yes in the picture perfect setting of Portofino
Encircled by red heart-shaped balloons on a bed of roses at the bow of a boat, Norwegian model Frida Aasen got engaged to Italian businessman and entrepreneur Tommy Chiabra. The couple announced the news yesterday with a heartfelt instagram post depicting the event.
Best known for walking the Victoria’s Secret fashion shows in 2017 and 2018, the model was first scouted when she was only 14 years old at a mall in Kristiansand, her home town. The 26-year-old Norwegian has been dating the 35-year-old CEO of Royal Yacht International since 2019, making the boat-based engagement all the more fitting.
According to her Instagram story, in front of the beautiful views of Portofino harbour, Aasen was led onto the boat with a pink scarf covering her eyes. The bride-to-be wore a white lace halter-neck dress cut close to her body, heralding the nuptial nature of the event. To set the mood, atmospheric strings by a single violinist wearing a voluminous red ruffle dress were played.
On Instagram, the couple both captioned the momentous event with ‘Per Sempre’ - meaning forever in Italian.
