Now that's how you celebrate an engagement.

Hours after announcing their plans to tie the knot on Wednesday, former NHL star Sean Avery and model Hilary Rhoda made a photogenic pair at the after party for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at TAO Downtown. 

Rhoda, 26, who was one of the top models walking the runway earlier in the night, looked stunning in a floral silk dress with leather accents. She was also wearing her latest accessory – a sparkling diamond ring! 

Avery, 33, who played for the Detroit Red Wings, the Los Angeles Kings, the Dallas Stars and the New York Rangers during his 12-year NHL career (and is also a former intern at Vogue) complimented his bride-to-be perfectly, wearing a dark navy shirt that matched the flowers on her dress.

There's apparently no such thing as rest for Ryan Lochte.

Following a successful Olympic run, the professional swimmer – who just landed a cameo on 90210 – is continuing to make his celebratory rounds.

Lochte began Thursday night with an appearance at the WWE SummerSlam VIP Kickoff party at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where David Beckham was also in tow.

Looking dapper, a source tells PEOPLE that Lochte "had every female on the carpet clamoring for his attention. He was a really sweet guy and more gorgeous in person." But unfortunately for the athlete, he didn't get a chance to meet his admitted "celeb crush" Carmen Electra, the source says, because he had to catch a plane to Las Vegas.

After besting Spain in the gold medal game Sunday, some of Team U.S.A.'s Olympic basketball stars celebrated at TAO/Marquee's Club Bud in London.

Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony made the bash a family affair, bringing wives Vanessa and La La, who both happened to be wearing leopard-print dresses.

"Kobe rarely left his wife's side," a source tells PEOPLE. "They were very affectionate as he had one arm draped across her as she danced against him."

As the night wore on, Alicia Keys's husband Swizz Beatz, who was DJing, invited the basketball stars on stage and blasted Queen's "We Will Rock You" – before spraying the crowd with champagne.

Rapper Nas was also on hand for the celebration, and closed out the evening with a surprise performance that had the nearly 2,000 partygoers singing until well past 3 a.m.

There were highs and there were lows for Kim Kardashian in 2011.

It was the year she got engaged to basketball star Kris Humphries, the year she walked down the aisle in a fairy-tale wedding – but also the year she watched her divorce play out in headlines after only 72 days of marriage.

"I learned to always follow [my] heart," Kardashian, 31, told PEOPLE while ringing in the new year with her mother, Kris Jenner, at Tao Las Vegas for the second year in a row Saturday night.
