Engagement ring from Cartier and 5000 roses: a famous Ukrainian blogger boasted engagement for a million hryvnias during the war
The famous Ukrainian blogger Candy Superstar, who has almost 1.5 million followers on Instagram, is getting married. The Internet star's boyfriend, Yegor, spent at least a million hryvnias on the proposal, as the engagement ring alone from the elite Cartier jewelry house can cost from 20 to 40 thousand dollars (these prices are listed on the brand's official website).
A blogger with deep pink hair posted a video on her personal Instagram page showing a guy proposing to her. Some Ukrainians called it "played-up ostentation" and "wastefulness" that is inappropriate in a full-scale war.
"Yes, yes, yes! 5 years ago, our story began, and now a new one is beginning. I've watched this video a million times and every time I have tears in my eyes... Not a proposal, just a dream," Kandi herself captioned the footage.
Yes, Yegor ordered five thousand red roses and hundreds of balloons in the shape of red hearts. All this was brought to the apartment where the lovers live.
For Candy, it was all kind of a surprise that she didn't know about. Yehor invited his blogger friends to his house. He blindfolded his beloved and took her to his apartment, where a precious 30-diamond engagement ring and a room full of lush roses were waiting for her.
"I said YES. Now I'm a bride, I'm writing and I still can't believe it, ahhhhh," the celebrity shared.
Some commentators were quick to congratulate the couple, while others asked the newly-minted bride and groom a very logical and obvious question: "Do you really think it's appropriate to throw so much money down the drain in the current realities, and to flaunt it all?"
Internet users also leave: "And all for the sake of a beautiful picture for Instagram, but how many useful things could have been bought for our defenders", "Money down the drain. The flowers will wither."
In addition, particularly vigilant subscribers noticed that the blogger had a perfect manicure, i.e. fresh, and thus had done it just before the proposal. This led commentators to believe that the girl knew about the proposal, and that the video was an "act" for social media.
"She knew because her manicure was fresh," "And it just so happened that she had a fresh manicure," commenters wrote.
