Kim Kardashian is used to making headlines for her fashion choices, but on Thursday the reality TV diva purchased her most surprising item to date: a burqa.
Kim K, who normally shows off her famous curves in skin tight dresses, is in Dubai with mother Kris Jenner to promote the opening of a Millions of Milkshakes shop. Yesterday the ladies treated themselves to a shopping excursion, which is when Kim picked up the traditional black burqa. She tweeted a picture of herself wearing the burqa, saying, "That's me!"
The burqa is an outer garment traditionally worn by Islamic women in an effort to cover their faces and bodies in public. Burqas have become somewhat controversial in recent years (Britain tried to ban them in public places), but the dress and face veil are still commonly worn in many countries.
So far Kim and Kris seem to be having a wonderful time exploring the city of Dubai. Kim tweeted, "Wow I'm in such awe over Dubai! My hotel is so insane,can't wait to do some blogs & show u guys! Too much to tweet! I'm obsessed with Dubai!"
