Kim Kardashian West pays tribute to her "number one style icon" Cher on the September cover of <a href="http://www.harpersbazaararabia.com/fashion/editorials/kim-kardashian-west-september-cover-star" target="_blank">Harper's Bazaar Arabia</a> -- and the singer is thrilled.

Cher gave her thumbs-up to the spread, tweeting, "My Little Armenian Sister did us both Proud."

The reality star responded, writing, "I love you!" 

For the Harper's shoot, Kardashian West pays homage with super-long locks and feathery lashes, wearing a beaded, fringe dress à la 1970s Cher. See the photos below.

"She's always had the sickest style, I'm obsessed with her," Kardashian West comments in the magazine. "To think that she was wearing these sheer dresses in the '70s and just what people must have thought back then."

On another September cover, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star channels another historic style icon, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, for <a href="/articles/news/lifestyle/7942270/kim-kardashian-interview-magazine-september-cover">Interview magazine</a>.
