The impossible has occurred: Kim Kardashian was outshined on the red carpet! The culprit was not another celeb, but the 22-carat diamond engagement ring on her finger — or as she jokingly referred to it, the “nice little cocktail ring.” The starlet attended The Ultimate Engagement Ring Search for The World’s Best Couple launch at Brasserie Ruhlmann in NYC on Monday and modeled the grand prize.
Though the recently single Kim said she’s “down for some hook-ups,”the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star still seems as in love with love as ever. Kim even referred to herself as a “hopeless romantic,” making her the perfect fit to show off the ring before awarding it to the winning couple.
“I think that growing up you kind of take little bits and pieces of the special relationshps you admire, whether it’s my grandparents or my parents,” Kim told reporters, “so I think I make a good candidate to help launch this event.”
The contestants will vie for the perfect princess-cut prize designed by Michael Hill by competing through a series of online challenges celebrating each couple’s special bond.
“I think the best part will be just hearing all of the different stories and seeing everything magical will just come out of me,” said Kim.
Though, wearing that rock probably came in a close second.
“It’s amazing. It’s beautiful. It’s cool,” Kim described of the stunning stone.
