Remember when Emily Ratajkowski got married in a $200 Zara pantsuit back in February? We've been waiting to hear how the surprise wedding went down, and she's finally spilling some new details. In an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ratajkowski shed some light on her impromptu nuptials.

Specifically, she explained that she nixed a white dress in an effort to go incognito: "I guess I didn't really know what I always wanted to do, which is maybe why it was so untraditional," she told Fallon. "I wore a mustard yellow suit and a black hat, which was all part of my plan to not be noticed. Well, everyone wore suits or sweatsuits, and my husband is good friends with the Fat Jewish on Instagram—they went to high school together, they grew up together—and he wore a white sweatsuit, so I was thinking he would be the decoy. Truly didn't work out quite as I'd imagined."

Ratajkowski also revealed that the proposal was anything but ordinary. "He proposed to me at Minetta Tavern, and he didn't have a ring, so I was like, 'mmm, nah,'" she told Fallon. "And then he took the paper clip that the bill was paid with and made me a ring, which I actually thought was really romantic." Read on to watch the interview in full.
