Not so Supreme: Kim Kardashian goes for over-the-top glamour in Diana Ross-inspired photoshoot

By Daily Mail Reporter

She may lack talent comparable to the divas and movie stars of decades past.

But it seems Kim Kardashian is obsessed with imitating them.

The reality star, 31, took to Twitter today to post an image of herself as none other than Diana Ross.

Diva or dud? Kim Kardashian did her best impression of Diana Ross in a recent photoshoot with Hype Williams

Kim, who has previously emulated Sophia Loren and Marilyn Monroe, bared little resemblance to the legendary singer.

But perhaps photographer Hype Williams, who also shot the music video for Kim's 2011 chart flop Jam (Turn It Up), has something different in mind from the raw images his model posted on Twitter today.

Mile-high hair: The reality star said she 'loved' the teased hairstyle - which also appeared to serve some function as a pillow

Taking it easy: Kim was barely recognizable in some of the behind-the-scenes snaps

Piling it on: The caked-on make-up was heavy - even for Kim

Still, taking to the micro-blogging website, the curvy star seemed ecstatic with the results, writing: 'Love this hair!!!'

The style certainly made a statement, Kim's curls teased several inches from either side of her face.

The make-up team accentuated her features with inches of product, bronzing her glossy complexion and topping it with rosy circles of rouge, slashes of pastel pink lipstick and heavy blue eyeshadow.

Her eyelashes appeared longer than their usual extreme length, spidering around her brown eyes, which were heavily lined in black.

A little edge: Kim was styled in studded thigh-high boots

Do you approve? Kim checked out some of the snaps on a camera during the session

Underneath it all: The star's face was buried beneath inches of make-up and a mountain of hair

The real diva: Diana Ross arrives at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards in Los Angeles on February 12, 2012

Hoop earrings, studded thigh high boots and a black blazer completed the styling.

Elaborating on her Celebuzz blog, Kim wrote: '[W]e went for a fun, crazy look, channeling Diana Ross. Definitely a new look for me.'

It was not known at press time where the final images would be featured.

Kim meanwhile released the snaps in tandem with a shot by Nick Knight which showed the star looking much more like herself.

A more 'natural' look: Kim also shared a snap from her forthcoming shoot for V magazine with photographer Nick Knight

The black-and-white image, shot for V magazine, features the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star sweeping back her mane to reveal chiseled cheeks and her trademark pout.

Clearly proud of the shot she promoted on Twitter, she thanked the fashion photographer.

'LOVE U NICK KNIGHT!' she wrote, telling fans she 'can't wait' for them to see the full editorial.

Keeping it in the family: Kim's younger sister, Kylie Jenner, meanwhile tweeted a photo of herself on Thursday modelling for fashion brand Sherri Hill
