Justin wanted to propose to Shannon somewhere beautiful with a winter wonderland atmosphere. He settled for the top of Sulphur Mountain in Banff, Alberta.
I really love that their video is from Justin’s POV. You don’t find many that’s actually recorded when it’s just the couple. There usually have to be gimmicks or hidden friends to pull this off.
Shannon’s reaction is the best. As Justin is still kneeling in the snow and all we see is the ring box, she’s covering her face and crying… but then suddenly the mitten on her left hand just happens to be off. Anyone notice that? She was ready to get that rock on her finger!
1 – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
It was the engagement heard ‘round the Internet when mega reality star (and new mom) Kim Kardashian was given a 14-carat Lorraine Schwartz ring on her 33rd birthday from boyfriend Kanye West. The new parents will likely have a televised wedding sometime in 2014 – and since it’s a Kardashian, we can expect no luxury to be missed. (Maybe North will be the tiniest flower girl ever?!)
2 – Lauren Conrad and William Tell
After developing a great brand for herself the past few years with books, crafting project and clothing, Lauren found an awesome dude to marry. Her boyfriend, law student William Tell proposed with a 2-carat diamond ring and Conrad told Cosmopolitan that she had no idea it was coming. How sweet!
3 – Hayden Panettiere and Wladmir Klitschko
Boxer Wladmir finally put a ring on his on-and-off girlfriend, Hayden in October. Though they have a large age (and height) difference, their passion is never lost in photos, kissing on the beach, cuddling on the red carpet. She confirmed the engagement and showed off her 4-carat engagement ring on Live with Kelly and Michael.
4 – Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
He might have a thing for models, but singer Adam Levin only has eyes for his Victoria’s Secret model finance’ Behati. After a short breakup, the couple got back together and Levine dismissed his playboy days during an interview with Jay Leno: “Famous last words, ‘I’ll never get married.’ I still don’t necessarily think you have to get married unless you meet someone that makes you want to marry them. And then you marry them and it’s wonderful.”
5 – Lance Bass and Michael Turchin
Former N’Sync star, Lance Bass proposed to his boyfriend of two years, Michael Turchin in New Orleans, after asking his parents’ for permission. They’re sporting matching groom-engagement rings these days and on the day of the engagement, August 31, he tweeted “Happiest guy in the world.” We’d say so!
Raymond wanted a special proposal for his girlfriend, Chandra. What better place to do it than the zoo?
To make it even more special, it was during the light show at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. Raymond won a contest with a local radio station’s MYEngagement contest where he won a ring from Rogers & Hollands Jewelers for his proposal idea.
I’d say he did a wonderfully, seasonally thoughtful proposal!
Josh wants to propose to Kim. So what does he do? Oh, ya know, just phones up old pal Justin Timberlake and asks if he can propose during his concert.
OK… not sure if that’s REALLY how the story goes, but Justin does say, “Josh called us earlier”, and leads Josh’s gal on stage and sets the moment for his proposal.
I love when celebs do things like this. I don’t know if Josh had to pay or just be persistent, but kuddos to JT for letting them have a private… er… very public moment during his concert. After all, what’s more important than love?
By the way, I’m amazed this girl didn’t freak out at JT leading her up by hand. She clearly must love her man!
Need some inspiration for a holiday outfit? Here is our style editor’s pick for this year.
” I love combining different patterns to create a unique look. Add some sparkles with a stunning piece of jewelry. You can borrow some cute earrings from your mother’s jewelry box for the occasion.” – Juliette Lê
“I went for splurge baroque accessories as I can borrow them! The dress and jacket are great items you can wear over and over again.” – Severine Ferrari
“Think of your wardrobe like a holiday gift! The clothing is like the wrapping paper, but no gift is complete without the bow and the ribbon. At the holidays especially, your accessories create the added sparkle. Remember to complete the look by adding the perfect accessories.” – Michael O’Connor
It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that Kelly Rowland confirmed on The Queen Latifah Show that she’s engaged! Considering the diamond ring she’s been sporting on THAT finger and the man she’s been spotted around town with, we’d say it was about time the singer and X Factor judge finally confirmed that she’s planning to marry Tim Witherspoon.
“He put a ring on it,” Rowland admitted in an interview airing Wednesday on The Queen Latifah Show, holding up her hand when Latifah insisted on hearing the details.
Rowland’s ring appears to be a cushion-cut, around four carats, set nicely in platinum. It’s a classic look with diamonds around the main stone and the shank, too.
Well done, Witherspoon, well done.
OH! How did her honey propose? Over Skype. Yep. Clearly they’re so in love she didn’t seem to mind the technology-barrier of the proposal. I’d say the ring makes up for it, wouldn’t you?

Affordable - I have two sisters, one older, one younger. Picking gifts for them, however, seems to get harder the older we get. That’s why I LOVE getting gifts that are “practical” but still thoughtful and fun (for everyone, not just my sisters)! These gloves are just that. Perfect for the colder months, reasonably priced, and so cute. You can get them on Modcloth.
Splurge - We love musicals in my family. It’s a thing. When we heard Les Miserable was returning to the Broadway stage in 2014, we all started wishing that we could go together. I would totally plan a NYC trip with my sisters (and our mom) as Christmas presents if I could!
Affordable - Men are so hard to shop for. I’ve learned that some gifts seem to “boring” to us, but that’s really how it goes with them! And how many men do you know that don’t carry a wallet? I love this as a gift idea!
Splurge - Sports are huge with my family… and not just the men! Season tickets to just about any sport would be an amazing present, but for my dad I would particularly go with NFL tickets. And, if you must know, he’s a Bears fan.
Affordable - My hubby is constantly on the go. If you have a special someone in your life who travels, this travel bag set from Target seems awesome. Another thoughtful and practical gift.
Splurge – Growing up with military men, they all seem to have a love for pocket watches. I would love to surprise my love with this amazing swiss-made pocket watch to go with his dress blues.
Affordable - The parents of your boyfriend, fiancé, or husband can always be tough to shop for. What’s too much, what’s not enough? Surprise them with a wonderful point-and-shoot camera. I don’t think you can go wrong with this (unless, of course, one or both of them are true photographers). If you’re married, or getting serious, this will come in handy for family events and, someday, possibly, grandchildren!
Splurge - Parents are hard workers, even when they’re later on in life and all the kids are out of the house. Giving them the chance to reconnect and relax without any worries? That seems like a too-good-to-be-true- gift to give, doesn’t it? What about a spa weekend?
Affordable - I love totes… especially totes from Anthropologie. The one I currently have is just about past its prime, and I’ve been eying this one for quite a while.
Splurge - I haven’t been on a romantic getaway in, well, a while. Everyday life seeps in and you get carried away with checklists and responsibilities. What better way to remember who’s important in your life by going on a cruise with them? This is on my bucket list, and I wouldn’t hesitate to accept if my hubby surprised me with this. Sometimes we just need a vacation, even at… or especially at… Christmas time!
