Reality Tv star Kim Kardashian has cited Madonna as the inspiration behind her new platinum blonde hairstyle.

Kanye West's wife recently swapped her trademark brunette locks for a daring bleached bob, and she admits the makeover is a tribute to the Queen of Pop.

Kardashian tells People.com, "I've always had this image of Madonna with platinum hair in my references folder on my computer and I've been waiting a long time to try the look. I thought what better time than right now for Paris Fashion Week. It was a really last minute decision."

Since debuting her new style, fans have likened Kardashian to Harry Potter character Draco Malfoy, rocker/actor Jared Leto and Orlando Bloom's The Lord of the Rings elf Legolas.
