Celebrity engagements: The best matches of 2012

It's the question many girls dream about being asked and, for a lucky few this year, the big moment finally came. With many celebrities, including actresses Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston and Kiera Knightley now on their way to tying the knot, we take a look back at some of our favourite engagements of 2012.The stunning star behind Topshop's Christmas campaign, Kate Bosworth, certainly has plenty to celebrate this season as she has announced plans to wed director Michael Polish.



She may have kept her fans guessing by moving a diamond ring from hand to hand but finally revealed a picture of the stunning jewelled number tweeting: "This photo was taken by my husband-to-be!"Thank you all for the wonderful engagement wishes... We feel truly blessed."And, at long last, Brad Pitt finally popped the big question to his partner of seven years and mother to their six children, Angelina Jolie. The groom-to-be reportedly spent a year planning the actress' stunning engagement ring which features a large emerald stone and further diamonds specially cut to encircle her finger.

Hollywood's golden couple may have been initially planning on suspending their wedding plans until the US passed rights for same-sex marriage, but it seems that the church bells may well ring sooner than we think."It seems to mean more and more to our kids," Brad said in January, later adding, "We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to [get married] 'til everyone can. But I don't think we'll be able to hold out … it means something to me to make that kind of commitment."Around the same time that Brad and Angelina announced their happy news, the actor's former partner Jennifer Aniston revealed that she was also to have her happy ever after.Fellow actor JustinTheroux fell for the Californian beauty on the set of their film Wanderlust in early 2011 and just a year later Justin proposed on his 41st birthday receiving an extraordinary present when Jennifer replied with a 'yes'.

And it seems to be a lucky year for the acting crowd all round as Keira Knightley's publicist confirmed her engagement to The Klaxons' star James Righton this summer. The couple started dating in April 2011 and although we expect the wedding to be a private affair, there's no doubt that modest yet super stylish 27-year-old Keira will stun us all with a spectacular gown.Watch this space – we can't wait for the weddings of 2013!
