Please don't do it, Kim Kardashian: Curvy star is the last person you want to see in a burka

By Sarah Fitzmaurice and Marcus Barnes

She is no stranger to trying almost any style on for size, but she is usually seen flaunting her curves rather than covering them up.

But it appears that Kim Kardashian wanted to embrace culture through her dress sense and donned a burka while out in Dubai yesterday.

The reality star, 30, covered up her infamous shape in an all-black burka, a traditional dress worn by many Muslin women.

Trying on a different look? Kim Kardashian and her mother Kris visited a traditional clothing shop in Dubai and the reality TV star wasted no time trying on the outfits

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.

That you Kim? The 30-year-old was quick to don the outfit and even covered her head leaving just her eyes, and a slip of the leg, on show

But it seems that Mrs Kris Humphries was rather taken with the new look and left in one of the dresses although she opted just to wear the ḥijāb, the head covering out of the shop.

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 Tuesday the 30-year-old made her way to the city's aquarium wearing a bright yellow top and green skirt that accentuated her famous behind.

And, ever the show woman, she pulled some silly poses as she observed the exotic fish swimming around at the Ambassador Lagoon at Atlantis, The Palm.

Kim's outfit, seemingly inspired by Brazil's national colours, comprised a sleeveless yellow shirt, with a green skirt that clung to her every curve.

With her long dark locks tied back into a ponytail, she accessorised with a pair of tan coloured Louboutins and a gold clutch.

As you may expect from Dubai's Atlantis aquarium it's one of the largest tanks in the world, with guests looking through a 10 square metre viewing panel directly into an 11 million litre marine habitat.

Throughout the resort, 42 million litres of salt water are home to more than 65,000 fish and sea creatures representing over 250 species.

As she made the trip around the huge Atlantis aquarium Kim stopped to have some tourist pictures taken and couldn't resist poking out her backside as her make-up assistant Joyce snapped away.

Kim was accompanied by her mother Kris Jenner on the outing.

Kris, 55, went for an all-in-black ensemble with a silky shirt, tight-fitting trousers and heels.

The group then headed inside the Nobu restaurant.

She reportedly asked the waiter for a special Midori melon cocktail (Kim is a spokesperson for the brand) as she did a toast with her group at the table to kick off her first full day in Dubai.

The reality star has been keeping followers on her Twitter page informed of her activities, posting up pictures of the view from her hotel room and telling them how excited she was to be there.

And, though she has a huge following of her own, she was quick to compliment Dubai's female population.

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!'

While Kim appears to be having a great time in the Middle East she also has a jam packed business schedule.

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.
