In Dubai, Kim dresses in a black garbage bag, otherwise known as a Burqa, the symbol of oppression of women in the Muslim world. Even worse, why would Kim Kardashian, born of Armenian heritage, don the attire of the people who massacred more than one million of her ancestors? Her late father, Robert Kardashian, must be rolling over in his grave.
UK DAILY MAIL In Dubai to promote her new fragrance, the reality star, 30, covered up her infamous shape in an all-black burka, a traditional dress worn by many Muslin women. Kim and her mother Kris had headed into a traditional dress shop to try on the styles for themselves and both women wasted no time embracing the religious outfits.
Newlywed Kim covered her body completely , with her face covered by the niqāb, the pillar-box covering that leaves only a woman’s eyes on show.
The look was in stark contrast to the outfit Kim had arrived in, which consisted of a black skirt nipped in at the waist and a sheer black and white blouse.
As she and Kris left the shop they were met with a large crowd eager to see the American reality TV stars.
But as ever there was plenty of security on hand to ensure no one got too close as the women were followed down the street.
Kim has showed off a wide variety of styles on her trip to Dubai varying from tight fitting ensembles to sticking to the conservative dress preferred in the religious country.
On Friday she is set to open the Middle East’s first Millions Of Milkshakes store and sign bottles of her perfume at Sephora, The Dubai Mall.
She will spend the evening hosting a gala dinner at At.mosphere in the Burj Khalifa. And on Sunday Kim is set to be pampered as a dinner has been arranged in Kim’s honour by Emirates Hospitality at the Al Han Restaurant in Abu Dhabi.
