Kim Kardashian is Harper’s Bazaar Arabia’s September covergirl and is channeling iconic singer, Cher.
The reality star graces the cover of the fashion publication donning a stunning gown from LaBourjoisie. Kim has always been candid about her love for Cher, so we are sure Kanye West’s wife beamed in ecstasy getting the chance to dress as the 70’s legend.
“I always look up to other Armenian women,” Kim told the publication. “I have deep family roots that are similar to hers.”
The photo cover, however, was released just days after the mother of three was blasted for channeling the one and only former FLOTUS, Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
In a spread for Interview magazine, Kardashian posed alongside her 4-year-old daughter North West and was deemed, “America’s New First Lady.” That did not sit will with folks on social media.
So what makes this portrayal different?
According to Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief, Louise Nichol, “Bazaar’s cover story with Kim pays tribute to another Armenian woman at the vanguard of style, Cher; a woman whose fashion choices 40 years ago must have caused as much of a furore as Kim’s provocative selfies do today.”
The question is: Will folks go after Kim again this week for her new portrayal?
