Mariah Carey is on cloud nine right now. Know why? She’s engaged!
Yes, billionaire boyfriend James Packer popped the question on Thursday, so you can imagine Mariah’s delight. The rock is HUGE. I mean, it is very very big, and reportedly cost the Aussie businessman $7.5 million dollars.
After James proposed during the dinner date, the two stepped out of Eleven Madison Park with Mariah grinning from ear to ear as James kept a frown on his face, most probably because of the flashing paparazzi cameras.

For the evening, Mariah wore a long black gown that showcased cleavage and legs. She teamed the number with diamond jewelry and a pair of crystal-embellished pumps from Christian Louboutin. Of course, all eyes were on the ring on her finger. I mean, how can you not look at the humongous rock?
A closer look at Mariah’s engagement ring
I can’t help but wonder how Nick Cannon feels about this bit of news. Then again, I don’t think he will care, as it has been reported that he is seeing someone.
Now enough of the ring. Let’s talk about Mariah’s shoes instead. The pumps are the “Paulina Strass”, a style crafted in satin and trimmed with crystal-embellished PVC panels.
They’re quite dressy and perfect for black-tie soirees and formal parties. However, I feel like Mariah should have worn open-toed shoes with her dress. Would you agree?
If you want the Paulina, you can get them on Louboutin’s European website. They retail at about $1340 excluding shipping, duties, and taxes. If I were you, it might be best to visit the nearest Louboutin store in your city instead. That way, you can request for the style and not have to worry about all the extra charges.
I’m going to end this post with a big congratulations to Mariah and James. I seriously hope they get to the altar and live happily ever after.
