Kim Kardashian channels Cher in AMAZING Harper's Bazaar Arabia exclusive shoot
They both share Armenian heritage and Kim Kardashian is obviously as in awe of Cher as the rest of us still are.
For the September issue cover of Harper's Bazaar Arabia Kim Kardashian chose to channel iconic pop star and fellow Armenian Cher in a chic photo shoot by Mariano Vivanco. The reality TV star looks sensational in the stylish black and white shots, her long dark hair styled in the exact middle-parted, poker straight 'do the singer favoured in the '70s and early '80s.
Kim Kardashian channels Cher for Harper's Bazaar Arabia
In one shot Kim rocks a pair of washed-out denim jeans and a simple black top, a look almost identical to a shot of '70s Cher. With her wide, spidery lashes, sharply contoured cheeks and soft nude pout, Kim looks like the spitting image of #throwback Cher. She even has a glam watch on the same wrist.
Kim told our friends at Harper's Bazaar Arabia that she has a special reason for choosing Cher as style inspo...
"I always look up to other Armenian women. I have deep family roots that are similar to hers. Cher always had the sickest style, I’m obsessed with her. To think that she was wearing these sheer dresses in the ’70s and just what people must have thought back then."
Kim is hardly shy about pushing sartorial boundaries, often posing for shoots that divide opinion. Not that she minds...
Kim wants to empower women to feel their best
"If doing shoots makes me feel confident, then I'm okay with it. That might not be appropriate for some people, and there's a time and a place. There's certain things I'll show my kids and certain things I won't show my kids. But generally I am okay with it. In moderation."
She also told Harper's Bazaar Arabia that being a mum will never affect the way she dresses...
"More power to the moms that look really good, work really hard, do what they can so that they still feel good about themselves. I don’t think for a second that because you become a mom you can’t be confident."
Kim is obviously over the moon with the shoot, taking to Instagram to share the news with her 102million followers, saying: "September Cover channeling my style icon Cher."
