Michael Bublé is set to take his 22-year-old Argentinian girlfriend Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre down the aisle. The Canadian singer reportedly proposed to the actress two months ago, but his rep only confirmed the news this weekend. "Michael proposed to his girlfriend, Luisana, in November, in front of her family in Argentina," rep Liz Rosenberg says. "They're ecstatic. They're adorable, in love and laugh all day long." Michael bought Luisana a diamond engagement ring from Minichiello and a close friend of the couple revealed: "He designed the setting himself. He's very proud to be engaged to her." The couple, who got together in November 2008, met after a concert Michael gave in Buenos Aires. "The head of the label wanted to introduce Michael to Argentina's most famous actress. When he met her, he said it was love at first sight," an insider revealed. Michael was previously engaged to The Young Victoria actress Emily Blunt but they split in 2008.

Emilio Lacroze was born in Buenos Aires. During his childhood years in the neighborhood of Belgrano he manifested his first artistic expressions which were developed in his adolescence showing great knowledge of the art of drawing. With these skills he started designing typographies for renowned advertisements and music bands demonstrating an early affinity for branding and eye-catching objects and figures.
Graduated Art Director from the Escuela Superior de Creativos Publicitarios (School of Creative Advertising) he complemented his studies in Espacio Buenos Aires becoming a Fashion Stylist under the teachings of Florence Arguello who represented great inspiration for his professional career. He learned to have a meticulous observation and construction of style and image and apply it to the contemporary world.
His infatuation for styling drove him to his first experience with fashion, working as a booker in Southamerican Models (now Rebel Management). While managing international models he developed strong bonds with fashion magazines and started getting involved in shootings and editorials learning every aspect of the "behind the scenes".
Perfectionist and passionate with image, Emilio has shown to be versatile when it comes to putting together an outfit and creating an editorial. From feminine and trendy to hard core and trash he has provided an unquestionable vision and observation of the human being as an element of daily art. Nowadays he collaborates with several magazines such as Catalogue Book, D-mode, Brando, Sophia and 90+10 amongst others.
In August in collaboration with Fabian Laghi, the distinguished argentinian fashion photographer, won the first prize at 7Âº Festival Internationale de Photographie de la Mode Cannes 2009. So in october he plans to continue his career in europe, where several of the most prestigious agencies of fashion stylist are very interested in booking him. Apparently Emilio's Career does not have roof. See his work at: Emilio Lacroze

Jessica Trosman, 38, is one of Argentina's most recognized fashion designers. A cross between Ann Demeulemeester and Jil Sander, her avant-garde designs are sold internationally through Harvey Nichols in London, Onward in Paris and Dernier Cri in New York, as well as through London-based Internet retailer www.Net-A-Porter.com. Trosman creates edgy yet easy to wear, affordable separates whose artfully draped silhouettes hint at an underlying intellectualism. It's no wonder her influences include Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Charles Eames, and Mies Van der Rohe. Because her collections are never thematic, her pieces have a timelessness about them.
