Olivia Palermo is Engaged! Does This Mean She'll Compete With Whitney Port for the Best Wedding Ever?


It's a very happy new year for Olivia Palermo. The former reality starlet is engaged to longtime boyfriend and ultra-hunky German model Johannes Huebl!

Huebl, who has dated Palermo since 2008, popped the question while the couple was vacationing in St. Bart's. To announce the good news, Huebl posted a video to his Instagram of Palermo running through a vibrant beach landscape and smiling, at the end of which she flashes a stunning engagement ring. "Happy New Year to everybody and this is how we celebrate it: OP said Y E S," Huebl captioned the video he posted (see above). While we couldn't get the clearest glimpse of her rock, it looks like a stunning emerald or radiant-cut three-stone sparkler.

This means one thing and one thing only: The holy trinity of MTV alums—Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port, and now, Palermo—are all engaged and thus poised to have simultaneously stylish (and, fingers crossed, televised) "I dos." We can only hope the competitive spirit that once made Palermo become Port's arch nemesis on The City will stir up old the old rivalry to create two blow-out bashes since they obviously won't be bridesmaids for each other. Like Conrad and Port, Palermo has become a style star in her own right. She's a permanent fixture at New York Fashion Week, and she and her brand-new fiancé consistently stun on the red carpet. It should come as no surprise that we're anxiously awaiting to see her future wedding dress (we're sure designers will scramble to create one for her!).

Regardless of a little healthy former co-star competition or not, the most recently betrothed pair are bound of have a beautiful wedding, I mean, just look at them! If that's not a gorgeous couple, we don't know what is.

Congrats to Palermo and Huebl!
