Kim Kardashian 'dressed for birthday proposal'

Kim Kardashian reportedly dressed in white during her birthday weekend as she was so sure Kanye West would propose.
The rapper whisked his girlfriend of less than a year away to Venice to celebrate her turning 32 last month. There was speculation he was planning to pop the question, with even Ryan Seacrest - who is behind Kim's reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians - claiming it was likely.
Kim was spotted enjoying a romantic stroll with Kanye, dressed in a white lace dress which was reminiscent of a wedding gown. He then presented her with a single red rose, which is reportedly not what she thought would happen.
"Kim was sure that Kanye would propose and he didn't. She was so disappointed when the weekend ended without an engagement. She couldn't hide it. Not only had she told her friends and family that she was expecting the proposal, she'd even picked out that white outfit especially as she was so sure about it," an insider told Heat magazine.
Days later Kim was spotted wearing a giant sparkly ring on her little finger. There were claims it was an engagement band, which were quickly dismissed.
Kim is in the process of divorcing Kris Humphries, who she split from just 72 days after they wed last year. It's thought this is part of the reason Kanye is yet to get down on one knee.
"There's no doubt that Kanye loves her, but he feels uneasy about the fact that Kim is still going through her divorce. It's painful for Kim, too - she is desperate to move on with Kanye," the source explained.
