Kim Kardashian Channels Icon Cher in Harper’s Bazaar Photoshootby Sonia Amoako Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 .
Kim Kardashian emulates her icon Cher for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.
The 36 year old stuns in the photoshoot taken by Mariano Vivanco. She told the magazine, ‘I always look up to other Armenian women, I have deep family roots that are similar to hers.’
On her fashion sense she said, ‘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.’
We all know Mrs West has made some interesting choices in the fashion stakes herself over the years but she has no regrets. ‘At the end of the day I still have to be me. If doing sexy 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.’
The cover was called Iconic Spirit. Louise Nichol , Harper’s Bazaar editor in chief Louise explained why. ‘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.’
Kim glows in the shots, rocking a sparkly black plunge beaded dress with a nude sheer panel at the front together. She also does glam in a maxi sparkly gown with sheer panel and super poker straight hair, parted in the middle. Her long lower eyelashes pop instantly, with the heavily glossy lips. We wouldn’t be surprised if her KKW Beauty products were used for the dramatic contour.
In another black and white image she wears a plunging mini dress with beaded fringe hanging down her legs. She poses confidently with her hands on her thighs, as her hair hangs way past her shoulders.
Our fave image though is a very laid back look, a simple black top tucked into her jeans highlighting her curvy figure. A watch and simple pretty gold chains play as accessories. Again the contour and eyelashes are flawless, adding a dramatic make up look to a chic and simple outfit.
