Is that Kris Jenner? Nope — it’s Kim Kardashian! Sporting a short black cropped wig over the weekend — reminiscent of her mother’s hairdo — the reality starlet caused many a double-take while on a photo shoot in Los Angeles.

Kardashian Tweeted a photo of herself with the shorter strands wearing a sexy leather jacket, hot pants and big shades while being hounded by paparazzi (pretty realistic, huh?) for the Vogue Italia shoot.

“Amazing shoot today for Vogue Italia! Thank you @Rushka_Bergman & @akafrancesco for your creative genius!!!” she said.

On Saturday, Kardashian shared another photo of herself; this one showed off her intense spray tan. “The tannerexic mom has some serious competition,” she joked before washing off the fake color.

We wonder what fashion-critic boyfriend Kanye West had to say about the (temporary) new looks.
