Kim Kardashian's latest fashion statement? A burqa!

Currently visiting Dubai -- where she helped fete the opening of a brand-new Millions of Milkshakes store and took many business meetings -- the reality star, 30, donned the garment and posted a pic on Twitter.

"That's me!" Kardashian confirmed via Twitter beneath a photo. (Her mom Kris Jenner also tried one on.)

Often controversial, the burqa (consisting of an outer garment, head covering and a face veil) is traditionally worn by Islamic women, with the aim of covering their face and bodies in public places.

"Good morning Dubai!" Kardashian tweeted Friday morning (Dubai time). "I'm having the best time here! I got some amazing traditional souvenirs to bring home to the fam, they're gonna love!"
