Jennifer Lawrence has been absolutely loved UP with art dealer Cooke Maroney for almost a year, and her publicist announced the pair's engagement earlier this month.
We're delighted for the 28-year-old Oscar winning actress, but we're really just DYING to see the ring. J-Law has been photographed with it multiple times since the proposal, but today is the first time a high-resolution snap has been taken of the ring.
From grainy, distance pictures to a crystal clear image, we have Dior to thank for it. Lawrence was announced as the face of the brand seven years ago, and she appeared at their Paris Fashion Week show today sporting the dazzling rock on her finger.
The actress attended the Fall/Winter 2019 Dior presentation alongside famous faces like Cara Delevigne and Karlie Kloss, and showed off her new accessory.
Maroney's ring is minimal in design, with a large emerald-cut diamond hanging off the platinum band. It's arguably a more modern take on a classic combo, as the stone isnit centred on the band.
Lawrence wore the ring with a tailored A-line short dress and plaid heels for the event, and the ring is speculated to cost around $200,000. It's roughly four to five carats, so Maroney didn't come to play.
Andrew Fox, President of SuperJeweler.com, gaveELLEthe lowest carat estimate for the engagement ring;
"Jennifer's ring, which is surprisingly modest, appears to be a three-to-four carat emerald shape diamond," he said. "While I'm certain that it's of very fine colour and clarity, Cooke Maroney most likely paid over $200,000." WOWZA.
She was first spotted wearing it while the couple were on a date in New York City at Raoul's in early February. "It was a giant rock," as a witness quoted at the time. "They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it. The ring was very noticeable.” I mean, it's huge, so it's hard not to notice.
Lawrence was previously in relationships with Nicholas Hoult, Chris Martin and Mother! director Darren Aonofsky. This is her first engagement, but Lawrence opened up about marriage to Vogue in 2015;
"I can't wait to be married. I feel like if I find that one person who I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children, that I would absolutely not f*ck it up."
When asked about bridesmaids by Vanity Fairin 2016, interestingly she said; "Weddings rock, but… there needs to be a bridesmaids' union. It's horrendous… If I do ever get married, I don't think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?"
We can't WAIT for this wedding, it's sure to be a big celebrity bash with many a famous face.
Valentine's Day can either be the most swoon-worthy event in the calendar year for loved-up couples, or a Hallmark-card disaster for the broken hearted.
Whether you'll be heading on a candelit-dinner date with roses or cuddling up with your pet on the couch, we can all use a little romantic-comedy movie magic.
We've created a list of our film favourites for the loveliest day of the year…enjoy ladies.
1. Set It Up

The biggest project of their young careers ensues, as their bosses will only fall for each other around their tight schedules, but will Harper and Charlie make a connection too?
Lucy Liu steals scenes as Kristen, Harper's insanely scary sports reporter boss. This movie is one of our favourite rom-coms ever, it somehow banishes clichés while remaining lovable at the same time.
2. To All The Boys I've Loved Before

Single at the age of 40, he finds Jacob (The charming Ryan Gosling), a handsome and youthful seducer who teaches Cal how to flirt with women again. Jacob is a bachelor of sorts, until his consistent co-star Emma Stone comes into the forefront. The pair really do sizzle on-screen together, but maybe it's just Ryan Gosling and anyone?

All we need is chocolate, candles and a fluffy pet to keep us warm for the perfect movie night.
Happy Valentine's Day gals, don't forget to treat yourselves.
McCary looked dapper as f*ck in a black tuxedo alongside his gorgeous and talented date. The 33-year-old has been a segment writer for the hit comedy show for a number of years.
The duo were first rumoured to be dating in October 2017, but the pair were only snapped on a date recently at a basketball game together.
Stone and McCary originally met in December of 2016, after Stone hosted the show and starred in the Wells for Boys sketch that McCary directed.
Page Six then reported that the pair were quietly dating for three months, since JULY 2017. They kept that pretty hush hush didn't they? Minxes.
Stone has kept a low profile in the dating scene since her last high-profile relationship ended. Andrew Garfield and Stone split back in October 2015 after more than three years of dating, after starring in Spiderman together.
The actress and Garfield were still photographed hanging out together in London in 2016, after Stone flew over to visit him. Garfield has been linked to Rita Ora since November, though neither of them have confirmed the rumours.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR. Except in the oxygen surrounding us, that seems to have gone amiss…
Chrissy Teigen is the latest celebrity to have been essentially CANCELLED online, after offensive tweets from back in 2010 and 2011 surfaced which say some pretty dodgy stuff about self-harm, Lindsey Lohan and trans people.
The tweets have been met with outrage on the internet, with Twitter users getting the hashtag #ChrissyTeigenIsOverParty trending almost instantaneously.
The comments are from roughly eight years ago, but they reference the appearances of celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga and in particular Lindsay Lohan.
I cannot wait to show up in court with john to fight this shit. @lindsaylohan what should I wear, you're the expert. Help.
One of our favourite films of all time is being remade, and the cast could not be more perfect!
We all watched the 1994 version of Little Women, starring Winona Ryder, Christian Bale, Susan Sarandon and Kirsten Dunst. It was one of those films we watched to get out of reading the book for school, but we ended up actually loving it.
Winona stole our hearts as the spirited Jo, who strained for independence and leaned on her sisters when life got tough. The movie adaptation was a heartwarming tale of sisterhood, romance, war, identity, and family.
Then last year, BBC’s mini-series took a new perspective on Louisa May Alcott’s classic. Each actor adhered to the book’s interpretation of them: Maya Hawke, playing Jo, strived to illuminate her character’s imperfections, Willa Fitzgerald showed Meg’s journey was one of self acceptance, and Annes Elwy embodied Beth’s social anxiety in a real and moving depiction.
Now, rumours of a modern interpretation of Little Women are spreading, and the word is that it will begin filming next month, according to Variety.
Allegedly, Emma Watson has been approached by Sony for a role, and although it is unknown which March sister she will play, her shorter hair and fiery Hermione attitude suggest she would be the perfect Jo. However, her poised and determined role of Belle as a romantic could suggest she would make an excellent Meg.
The Harry Potter star is said to be replacing Emma Stone, who was originally asked to be part of the film but had to turn the offer down due to filming clashes with Fox Searchlight film The Favourite.
Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan and Timotheé Chamalet will join forces again for a remake of one of the best novels.
The duo are set to star in Greta Gerwig's adaption of the beloved Louisa May Alcott book Little Women.
Variety reported that Meryl Streep, Emma Stone Florence Pugh will also join the Lady Bird actors in the remake.
Little Women follows the lives of the March sisters -Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy- and their mum during the Civil War. Their father is away at war and the family face many difficult times, but their sisterly bond helps them get through the highs and lows of teenage life.
The four sisters travel down different paths and soon realise that growing up isn’t as easy as they once thought it would be.
Saoirse Ronan recently gushed about her love for coming-of-age movies, so this will be the perfect fit for her.
She told RTÉ Entertainment about her love of movies similar to The Breakfast Club and Lady Bird.
“I loved things like Rebel Without a Cause and Dirty Dancing. Lots of films that, I suppose, were about a young person figuring out who they were in the world. That seemed to be what I was really drawn to,” Saoirse expressed.
There’s no doubt in our minds that Gerwig’s adaption of Little Women will win the hearts of fans across the globe, especially with such an impressive cast.
She honoured the Times Up campaign by wearing a stunning black dress to last night’s Golden Globes, but there was something extra special about Emma Stone’s makeup look from the award ceremony.
The Oscar winner’s makeup artist shared a stunning photo of her makeup look with her Instagram followers, captioned, “This woman’s strength and beauty truly know no bounds. #emmastone heading to the #goldenglobes red carpet tonight. Emerald green eyes and violet stained lips.”
The Battle of the Sexes star wore violet lipstick and emerald green eyeshadow for the most empowering reason. Her makeup artist Rachel Goodwin revealed that Emma’s look was inspired by the Suffragette movement.
She shared, “Tonight my beauty inspiration came from the symbolic colours of the women’s suffrage movement. I wanted to create a makeup that would somehow be imbued with the message of female empowerment and solidarity.”
The makeup artist explained that Emma wore purple as it symbolises the royal blood that flows through the veins of every Suffragette.
She added that purple stood for their, “instinct for freedom and dignity, white stands for purity in private and public life.”
The La La Land star rocked the most stunning green eye-shadow which symbolised hope, which was one of the main themes of last night’s event.
Alongside Emma, hundreds of Hollywood stars hoped to raise awareness by wearing black on the Golden Globes red carpet.
Nicole Kidman, Viola Davis, Chris Hemsworth, Emilia Clarke, Reese Witherspoon, Zac Efron, the cast of Stranger Things all wore black in honour of the Times Up campaign.
We love how Emma used something as simple as makeup to spread an empowering and important message!
Move over Jennifer Lawrence, there's a new queen bee in town.
Emma Stone has just been named as Hollywood's highest-paid actress.
After raking in an eye-watering $26,000,000 over the last 12 months, Emma Stone has secured her place at the top of Forbes' annual 'rich list.'
Following her award-winning performances in La La Land and Birdman, Emma's earnings rose by a whopping 160 per cent last year, making her 2016's highest-paid actress.
The news comes after the star recently spoke out against Hollywood's gender pay gap, revealing that some of her male co-stars would take pay cuts in the interest of equality.
“In my career so far, I’ve needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them,” she said.
“And that’s something they do for me because they feel it’s what’s right and fair. That’s something that’s also not discussed, necessarily: that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, ‘That’s what’s fair.’”
Jennifer Lawrence, who topped the list in 2016, came in at third place, while Jennifer Aniston came second (largely due to endorsement deals).
Coming in sixth place was Emma Watson, who was the only British born actress to make the top 10.
As most fans of Emma Stone would know, the much-loved actress has spent much of her life navigating an anxiety disorder.
And in an effort to share her experience with fellow sufferers, the La La Land actress teamed up with Child Mind Institute, and revealed that her coping mechanism hinges on her abiility to acknowledge the fact that anxiety ebbs and flows.
“It’s so nice to know that, in those moments of real intensity, it will shift, and it will change, and there’s a lot that I can do to help myself," she said.
When asked what she would tell her younger self when dealing with anxiety, she said: "Life goes in stages and it has always been something that I've lived with and flares up in big ways at different times in my life."
"But sometimes while it's happening when I'm in a phase of real turmoil or the anxiety is very strong and it feels like it's never going to end, but it does."
Emma reminded sufferers that she has learned how to manage the condition and encouaged them to seek tools which enable them to deal with it as well.
