For Chris Appleton, Lukas Gage is really a cut above the rest.
As the celebrity hairstylist—who was honored with the Hair Artist of the Year award at The Daily Front Row's Seventh Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards—noted, he has a lot to be thankful for currently, including his fiancé.

"Thank you to Lukas for being my rock and putting up with me," the 39-year-old said during his acceptance speech on April 23. "And making me feel perfect when I know I'm not."

Chris also went on to gush about client Kim Kardashian, who alongside daughter North West, helped present him with the evening's honor. "And most of all, thank you to Kim," he continued. "Everyone says this—anyone I've ever met says how kind she is. Honestly, she's the nicest person I've ever met. She's so giving, so generous and really doesn't have to be."

Chris' sweet shout-out to the White Lotus star comes nearly three weeks after a source confirmed the pair's engagement to E! News. After being first linked in late February following a series of outings, Chris opened up about the couple's romance.
