Kim Kardashian West paid homage to her style icon, Cher, by dressing up as the singer for Halloween 2017 in a throwback Armenian-inspired costume. At a Casamigos bash, Kim dared to channel her idol, but Cher was nothing less than impressed by the holiday gesture.
Kim Kardashian didn’t merely slip into a random Cher Halloween costume because Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman character is trending this year. According to Elle magazine, Kim’s choice to dress as Cher was deliberate and based on her fascination with the veteran songstress and fashion diva.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star put enormous effort into duplicating Cher’s shimmering 1973 two-piece ensemble that she wore at the Oscars. Kim hired tailors for the custom Halloween outfit and nailed it, according to the fashion and pop culture magazine.
To complement Kim’s Cher gold-and-sheer ensemble — a “yellow bejeweled cropped top and skirt combo,” as Hello! described — the reality TV star wore a long black wig down the length of her back. Kardashian West’s makeup was flawless and she made sure to get her nails manicured for the Halloween-themed party.
To round out her Cher outfit, Kim brought along her assistant and BFF, Jonathan Cheban, who pulled off a convincing Sonny Bono, Cher’s late ex-husband and the other half of the Sonny & Cher duo.
Kim’s sister, Kylie Jenner, took several snaps of the fake Sonny & Cher and posted the images on her Instagram. Kim Kardashian joined in the fun and took several selfies of her and her Halloween date.

Rande Gerber and George Clooney, former owners of the Tequila brand, hosted the retro party at the WeHo Tower Records. George’s wife, Amal Clooney, and her pal, Cindy Crawford, turned heads with their costume choices.
Amal wore an elaborate spangled jumpsuit and prominent makeup. Her hair was frizzy and blown out. A pair of gold hoops dangled from her lobes. Cindy wore a playful halter dress, red skirt, and stilettos. Crawford’s hair was curly for the occasion. The celebrated supermodel wore black bangles and held tight to a white fur around her midsection.
As for Kim’s daring Cher Halloween costume, she didn’t have to worry long as to whether or not she made the “Believe” singer proud. Cher took to Twitter and showed her appreciation for Kim Kardashian’s gesture.
“You look BEAUTIFUL Little Armenian Sister,” Cher tweeted.
