Kim Kardashian swapped her usual fashion for a series of veils as she took part in a cover shoot for Arabian luxury women’s magazine, Hia.
But while she may have been veiled, Kim Kardashian was certainly not demure. In a video of the shoot she unwraps her conservative outer gear to reveal a daring plunging gown which shows off her breasts.
In other shots Kim Kardashian looks like a regal Arabian princess in a jeweled goddess headband.
The cover itself was more suitable for the Middle East market, with Kim Kardashian posing in a white Stéphane Rolland dress, her hair covered by a matching long white veil.

“I’m excited to share my cover of Hia Magazine!” Kim Kardashian tweeted.
“Hia is the leading luxury lifestyle magazine for Arab woman and I’m honored to be on the cover.
“This shoot was so different from any I have done before and I’m so pleased with how the cover turned out.
“I got to wear some incredible high glamour creations by grand couturier Stéphane Rolland!”
And she later explained: “Working with Stéphane Rolland was such an honor.
“I loved how his couture creations brought a modern twist to old school glamour.
“I wore a series of stunning veils, which added a sense of allure and mystery to the shoot!”
Kim Kardashian recently visited Kuwait and Bahrain to promote the Millions Of Milkshakes chain and has a huge following in the middle east.

The theme of the edition is Freedom, exploring everything from the change in a woman’s freedom after she has children, to how the changes in the Middle East have affected women in the region.
The editor of SLiNK, Rivkie Baum (a size 16-18 26-year-old), said the 3D technique was employed “to create a sensational selection of images with a military theme that truly come to life”.
She added: “The issue is The Freedom Issue and as our lead story we wanted something fierce and fresh with a military spin.
“We worked with a lot of mainstream PR agencies for this shoot, especially with young designers whose samples would work for both a girl of size 14 and a straight size model.
“We find emerging designers are keen to work with models of various sizes. We wanted this shoot to really be about pushing boundaries of what <<plus size>> modelling and fashion should be about.”
As well as the 3D shoot the edition also features a beauty section, shopping pages and extra editorial shoots, including a beautiful lingerie shoot.
SLiNK, which won the award for Best Plus Size Magazine 2011 at the 100% People Awards, was founded “to show that plus-size models can do anything a straight size model can”.
The fashion inside can always be found up to a size 22, often a 32.
The concept for the publication was Rivkie Baum’s, a graduate from the London College of Fashion in Design and Pattern Cutting and a creative at Models 1.
Her aim was to promote healthy lifestyle, body confidence and body acceptance to the 4.9 million women in the UK who wear a size 18+.
Rivkie Baum said: “SLiNK is a shining light in a world that frowns on plus size women.
“Using models who are a size 14+, SLiNK’s ethos is to show their readers that being fuller-figured is no barrier to obtaining both an on-trend wardrobe and a fabulous lifestyle.”
SLiNK magazine has run online for one year and is now available to purchase via the company’s website.
