Hitched: This Week in Celeb Engagements
A trio of blondes — Nicky Hilton, Alice Eve and Riley Keough — say yes to their respective loves
After a summer of high-profile weddings (hello Kim and Kanye, Behati and Adam), this week's brand-new celebrity engagements are giving us a fresh batch of starlets to watch for bridal cues in the coming months.
Hotel heiress and fashion designer Nicky Hilton celebrated her third anniversary with European banking heir James Rothschild by saying yes to his bended-knee proposal while the power pair were on a boat in Lake Como, Italy, where they first met, reports Us Weekly. No shots of the ring have surfaced yet, but it's safe to imagine the rock she got from Rothschild — who reportedly secretly flew to the U.S. to get her parents' approval — is probably a stunner.
A second beautiful blonde promised herself to a European finance guy this week. According to her rep, British actress Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness, Sex and the City 2) has said yes to her high school sweetheart, U.K. financier Alex Cowper-Smith. They originally dated as teens at London's Westminster School and later reconnected.
And Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough shared the news of her engagement to boyfriend Ben Smith-Peterson in typical 25-year-old style: with a selfie Smith-Peterson posted to his Facebook page (and later removed) showing off both his wolf-riddled chest tattoo and her big sparkly new number. In the shot, the model and actress, who met the stuntman on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road, is either making the ASL sign for "I love you" or the universal hand gesture for "rock on," both appropriate sentiments from the rock royalty spawn. Maybe a wedding at Graceland is in the cards?
