Kim Kardashian Dons A Burqa In Dubai

Jessica Wakeman / October 14, 2011

NOTE: We had to take the photo in question down (image rights issue) but you can see it here and continue to discuss. Sowwy!

Kim Kardashian isn’t known for covering up, so this photograph of her trying on a burqa in Dubai is … weird … to say the least. There’s at least one other photo of Kim and her mom Kris Jenner walking down a Dubai street while Kris is wearing a veil, which I assume was her trying to be respectful of Muslim customs. (However, Dubai is a very modern city and other women in the photograph, including Kim, aren’t veiled.) Yet I feel sort of uncomfortable about Kim trying on a burqa — I assume “for fun” — when the face-covering veil is forced on women in other parts of the world, like Afghanistan. Maybe I’m overthinking this, though. What do you think? [CelebuzzContact the author of this post at Jessica@TheFrisky.com. Follow me on Twitter at @JessicaWakeman.
