Black Twitter blasts Kim Kardashian for dressing up like Aaliyah for Halloween


Kim Kardashian's Halloween costume is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

The first was a nod to the reality star's style idol, Cher (who she also paid homage to with a recent photoshoot in Harper's Bazaar Arabia), and her late husband, Sonny Bono from their 1973 Oscars appearance. Her transformation caught the attention of Cher herself, who tweeted: You look handsome.

Kardashian wore leather trousers and a glittering bra top, belt and choker to channel late singer Aaliyah.

However, Kim Kardashian's third ensemble, that of late pop star Aaliyah met with mixed reactions on the internet. She announced it on Twitter with the picture of the two as Cher and Sonny.

Love her, hate her but you can not keep Kim Kardashian out of discussions on Halloween. Though no one has actually taken a count of how many individuals have come out for and against Kim's look of the night, it's actually arguable that there are more tweets in her defense than against her.

Kim, meanwhile, captivated fans with her outfit, looking near-on identical to the Like a Prayer singer.

The 37-year-old reality star and 25-year-old singer were among the celebrities to ring in the holiday in style and post photos of their costumes on social media. However others contended that Kim's darker-than-usual tan was an attempt to emulate Aaliyah's skin tone.

Several celebs into the Halloweenspirit a bit early as they donned clever costumes for the festivitiesover the weekend.
