Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Renew Their Vows in Paris

Article-2137365-12CE09B2000005DC-650_634x901Celebrity couples love their extravagant annual vow renewals, and Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are no different. Last Friday, the pair exchanged vows for the fourth time, celebrating with an "intimate ceremony after a romantic dinner at the beautiful Jules Verne restaurant," says the couple's spokesperson.


However intimate the ceremony was, the publicity has been less-than-quiet, with the couple posing for a photo-op and getting gussied up in a mermaid-style white dress for her and a white tux for him. An authentic display of true love, or a quick attempt to get back in the spotlight? We'll never know for sure.

Angelina's Wedding Dress Predictions

We’ve seen plenty of that massive ring (rumored to be over 10 carats!) ever since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie officially confirmed their engagement on Friday. But what about The Dress?


With Angelina's red-carpet style in mind, we rounded up the top wedding dress picks we think would totally wow on their big day.


A Sultry Style

Remember that bold slit dress—and that infamous leg pose—Angie flaunted at the Oscars? We’d love to see a similarly sexy style incorporated into her wedding gown—something like this Monique Lhuillier satin number.

Elegant Long Sleeves 

A deep slit will usually require a bit more coverage up top—and Angelina’s no stranger to pulling off elegant long-sleeved gowns on the red carpet. This Pronovias style combines both of the bride's favorite trends.

A Form-Fitting Silhouette

The actress has often rocked premieres in form-fitting pencil skirts. We think she’d stun in this vintage-inspired Marchesa dress—a design that would certainly flatter her famous silhouette.

Casual & Classic

We’ve heard the A-list duo is aiming for an “intimate and informal” affair, so it’d be no surprise if Angelina settled on a more low-key, bohemian feel. If the rumors are true and the pair were to tie the knot at an outdoor ceremony in the South of France, we’d picture something like this gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown—with soft, loose fabric and a simple, classic design.

The Latest Details on Brad and Angelina's Engagement


After seven years and six kids together, it's finally official -- and we've got the dish on everything you need to know (and probably much more) on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's engagement. From dress predictions to the location, keep reading for the latest details developing in Hollywood's much-anticipated nuptials:


You didn't think we'd leave you hanging at the ring, did you? Rumors are abuzz that Jolie will walk down the aisle in L 'Wren Scott -- and judging from the screen siren's past award show looks, we can totally envision her in one of Scott's signature sultry film noir-inspired dresses. Other potential designers? We're thinking a few of of Jolie's red carpet favorites, including Jenny Packham, Elie Saab and Versace.


As for the ceremony, this isn't Kim and Kris, so don't expect a widely broadcasted TV special with thousands of guests in tow. In fact, we hear that the couple is planning their "intimate and informal" nuptials in the South of France, hidden away from the paparazzi. With an influential hand in charity work, we wouldn't be surprised if the two have guests donate to one of their favorite causes in lieu of gifts. Rumor also has it that Jolie's brother, James Haven, is set to be the couple's officiant. Hopefully, there won't be any awkward family kisses this time around...


No word on an exact date yet, so a majority of the juicy details are still under wraps. "It's a promise for the future, and their kids are very happy," said Pitt's manager Cynthia Pett-Dante.

Bling Battle: How Do Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston's Engagement Rings Compare?



After the big reveal, it's no surprise that the paparrazi were so quick to snap photos of Angelina Jolie's dazzler at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art last week. Experts say the actress's ring, complete with an emerald-cut center stone and large side stones that circle her finger, could weigh in at more than 10 carats total. Wowzer!


So how does this rock compare to the one Pitt gave to his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston? In 1999, he proposed to Aniston with a ring he also helped to design with his then jeweler Silvia Damiani. While Jolie dons a more sleek, structured stone, Aniston's stunner was modeled after the symbol of eternity and featured a more classic round brilliant stone surrounded by three rows of 20 spiraling diamonds.


Both, certainly eye-popping, have a unique aesthetic in shape and size, but Aniston's ring had an estimated worth of $500,000, while Jolie's is said to have a whopping price tag ranging between $250,000 and $1 million. You be the judge!

Brad and Angelina Engaged! Apparently...


Are all those rumors finally coming true?


After Angelina Jolie was spotted with some serious left-handed bling at an event Wednesday night, a rep for celebrity jeweler Robert Procop has now confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he designed Jolie’s engagement ring -- in collaboration with Brad Pitt!


"Brad had a specific vision for this ring," Procop told The Hollywood Reporter. "He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so I was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suite [sic] Angelina's hand. Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution."


Jolie, 36, and Pitt, 48, who share six children together, have in the past brushed off rumors of marriage. "Angie and I will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able," Pitt has told Esquire.


Though the engagement hasn't (yet) been confirmed by the long-term couple (maybe they don't want to seem like flip-floppers), it looks like this time the A-list duo might finally be ready to make it official. Stay tuned for the latest!
