When in Rome, cover up.

On Monday, Kim Kardashian toured Vatican City in style with supermodel Kate Moss and her 18-year old daughter, Lila Grace.

Always one to turn heads, the 40-year-old fashion mogul wore a sheer, off-the-shoulder white lace Barragán dress with sexy hip cutouts.

Her outfit was met with criticism from fans and foes alike, with many claiming the A-lister had no respect for the religious site’s strict dress code.

The Vatican prohibits low-cut and sleeveless clothing, two rules that Kardashian appeared to break.

But the reality star took to Instagram Thursday to assure fans that she “adhered to the dress code and fully covered up while inside St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel.”

As a show of respect, Kardashian layered a long leather coat over her curve-hugging gown while inside the holy venue.

The post included photos of the superstar and her friends inside the Basilica and various chapels, which draw millions of tourists per year. Along with 47-year-old Moss and her daughter, Kardashian’s hairstylist Chris Appleton joined for the tour, as did her makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic.

While Moss opted to keep her satin jacket on throughout the visit, the Skims founder shed her coat once the pair stepped out onto the Basilica’s terrace.

In the lengthy caption, Kardashian reflected on the visit: “We had the most incredible experience touring Vatican City @vaticanmuseums. It was amazing to be able to view all of the iconic art, architecture and ancient Roman sculptures in person, especially Michelangelo’s works.”

Added the star, “We even had an opportunity to view their private archive of robes worn by every pope in history, dating back to the 1500’s.”

Earlier this week, paparazzi photos of Kardashian’s daring dress set social media ablaze.

“Kimmy, have you no decency? We understand you are decorum absent, but must you find it necessary to parade your assets in this manner at the VATICAN? Disrespectful…,” one person tweeted.

“Uh I had to buy a scarf to go into the Vatican to cover my shoulders because I had a sleeveless shirt on. There is no way they let her in the Vatican without her shoulders covered,” another added.

Clearly, while Kardashian has no plans to abandon her signature sexy style, she’s also committed to following the rules.
