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?

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
