The Engagement Ring Muse’s Matt Bellamy Gave Model Elle Evans Is Picture Perfect

This holiday season has been ripe with new engagements, and while we love a good Christmas-light-emblazoned proposal, we’re also partial to beachside surprises. Case in point: Muse singer Matt Bellamy proposed to model/actress Elle Evans on a recent couples vacay to Fiji, and it honestly couldn’t have been more picturesque.


Evans, who is best known for her appearance in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines music video. The model shared the news of her beachside engagement, which featured a sweet message of “congrats Matt and Elle” written in petals on the sand, surrounded by a heart made of coconuts.

“We are so happy to announce to the world that we are engaged!” the model shared, along with an image of the couple riding horseback along the beach and a snap of herself smiling in casual beach attire after she said yes. Bellamy, who was previously engaged to Kate Hudson (the two share a six-year-old son, Bingham Hawn “Bing” Bellamy), and the former Playboy playmate have been dating since 2015.

While a beachside proposal is undoubtedly #goals, it’s the ring itself that we literally cannot stop drooling over. The ring in question is a massive pear-shaped diamond set on a diamond pavé rose gold band. The 28-year-old’s iridescent silver mani completed the dazzling look. Gorgeous!

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.*
