Kardashians are gripped by Halloween fever, especially Kim and her elder sister, Kourtney. The lovely ladies put up their best and quirky foot forward this spooky season of Halloween 2017. Kim decided to do away with fairytale characters such as Jasmine, Red Riding Hood or Ariel. She also chose to keep the sexy female villains and superheroines costumes out of the way. It meant Kim would not be dressed as Poison Ivy, Catwoman or Wonder Woman. This time the hot TV personality chose to dress up as all-time favourite pop stars – Cher, Madonna and Aaliyah.
On Friday night, Kim dressed up as ‘Goddess of Pop’ Cher for the Casamigos Halloween Party. She was joined in by her best friend Jonathan Cheban who dressed up as Cher’s husband Sonny Bono. Kim replicated 71-year-old music icon’s exact look from the 1973 Academy Awards and her efforts truly paid off when Cher tweeted kind words to her. Her next look was Madonna and she was joined in by her sister, Kourtney who dressed up as Michael Jackson. The two recreated the King and Queen of Pop at the 1991 Academy Awards.
