Huge congratulations are in order for Paris Hilton, who announced her engagement to Carter Reum this week.

The Simple Life star delighted fans by sharing a glimpse into the romantic moment Carter got down on one knee – and didn't she look simply stunning?

Paris opted for a white sequinned gown from Retrofête that featured glamorous balloon sleeves, a plunging neckline and a thigh split. 

The vintage 'Margarita' dress has almost entirely sold out online, but the 'Camille dress' is almost identical, minus the waist-cinching belt. Both dresses feature in the designer's bridal collection and would make the perfect statement at a glamorous wedding.

What's more, the £820 and £915 price tags make them a much more affordable option than many wedding dresses – so perhaps Paris plans to choose something similar for when she walks down the aisle?

To finish off her show-stopping look, Paris added white pumps, glittery fingerless gloves and a sparkly tiara, as well as a pair of sunglasses.

The proposal took place on the beach as the couple prepared to celebrate Paris' 40th birthday. Next to a video on Instagram, she wrote: "When you find your soulmate, you don’t just know it. You feel it.  My love & I have been together since our first date, and for my birthday, he arranged a special trip to tropical paradise. 

"As we walked to dinner along the beach, Carter led us to a cabana adorned with flowers and dropped to one knee. I said yes, yes to forever. There’s no one I’d rather spend forever with. To see more photos of my birthday dream come true, visit ParisHilton.com. Here's to Love - the Forever Kind #Engaged #SheSaidYes."

She added: "My fairytale dream came true! I love my future husband so much! Best birthday surprise ever!! So excited to be your wife!"

Paris' engagement ring is believed to cost $3million and was designed by Jean Dousset, the great-grandson of Louis Cartier.

Mike Fried, CEO of Diamond Pro, told HELLO! magazine: "It is a masterpiece of design with the hidden halo to go along with the trapezoid three-stone ring style. Based on the images we now see on Paris Hilton's website, this ring came with a hefty price tag. I would say that it has dwarfed the $2million her last ring was worth."
