Everyone’s favorite curvaceous cutie was in town yesterday pimping engagement rings as the spokeswoman for Search for the World’s Best Couple, a social media contest in which couples around the world are competing in challenges such as best photos, stories, pet names, and all around mushiness to win a 22.25 carat stunner from Michael Hill Jewelers. The bling is a gorgeous princess cut diamond set in platinum with a soft half-round shank that sweeps up and splits at the shoulders to form four claws. The winning couple will be chosen mid-December.

Afterward, she hit up the screening of Runway at the ICON theatre with Chicagoan and star of the film, Kanye West.

A little ironic since she’s the only single Kardashian?
