Kim Kardashian may have graced the pages of Playboy magazine in a nude pictorial back in 2007 but recently she was seen wearing a traditional burqua and a niqab in Dubai. The burqua is a dress worn in many Middle Eastern countries and a symbol of modesty. She was seen shopping for the outfit with her mother Kris Jenner during their promotional tour of Dubai. She later tweeted a photograph of herself in the burqua for her fans. Afterwards the mother and daughter pair was seen riding camels as paparazzi snapped more pictures of their trip. Kim Kardashian rode her camel while wearing six-inch platform stilettos by Christian Louboutins.
“That’s me!” she tweeted, adding a retweet of a picture of her trying on the garments.
The Dubai trip is an opportunity for Kim Kardashian to promote her signature fragrance at Sephora at the Dubai Mall. She is also opening the first Millions of Milkshakes location outside the U.S.
Burqas and niqabs were not the only thing that Kim Kardashian wore to look like a native in Dubai. It was also reported that she tried on caftans and tunics while shopping. Despite being surrounded by bodyguards 24/7 the reality TV star is enjoying her adventure in the UAE.
“Good morning Dubai! I’m having the best time here! I got some amazing traditional souvenirs to bring home to the fam, they’re gonna love!” she tweeted on Oct. 13.
Kim Kardashian may have been having fun but the trip was all business. On her first full day in Dubai she toasted her group at dinner with a Midori melon cocktail. She is a spokesperson for the brand. The majority of the trip is being filmed for the next season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Followers have enjoyed an endless stream of updates from the star with activity reports, pictures, and commentary of the people of Dubai.
She wrote: ‘Seriously the woman in Dubai are sooo gorgeous!!! I’m sure @RobKardashian is so jealous he didn’t come with me! WOW these woman are beautiful!’
Rob Kardashian is currently competing on Dancing with the Stars and was unable to join his sister and mother on the trip.
