Muse Singer Matthew Bellamy Is Engaged to Elle Evans: See the Stunning Ring!

Meghan Trainor’s not the only one celebrating an engagement this weekend! Muse singer Matthew Bellamy will also soon be getting hitched after proposing to his model girlfriend Elle Evans while on vacation in Figi.


The 28-year-old stunner (who you might recall from Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video), took to Instagram to share the happy news, saying that while she and Bellamy, 39, originally planned to surprise everyone on Christmas Day, they were simply too excited to wait any longer.

“We are so excited to announce to the world that we are engaged!” she gushed. “Just a few days after my birthday, on the most romantic holiday of our lives, the man of my dreams asked me to marry him! After tears of joy, gasps of shock, and a split second of disbelief, of course I said YES! I can’t imagine our lives apart,” she wrote, adding, “What I can imagine is a bright future full of love and light, family and friends, moments that turn into cherished memories, and a lifetime of pure bliss.”

She also gave us our first look at her (huge!) engagement ring, which was comprised of a single —yet very sizable! — pear-shaped diamond set on a gold band.

While the frontman was previously engaged twice before, first to psychologist Gaia Polloni and later to Kate Hudson, there’s sure to be no bad blood with his exes over the news — he and Evans spent the holidays in Aspen with the Marshall actress just last year.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
