Kim Kardashian West has channelled her mother Kris Jenner and donned a cropped wig for a new photoshoot.

The 36-year-old star has ditched her trademark long longs and sported short black hair and tight black PVC dress teamed with a choker in a new picture on Instagram and said the 61-year-old momanager inspired the fierce look.

Taking to the photo-sharing site, on which she has 96.3million followers, Kim simply captioned the image: ''Kris Jenner Vibes''.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star has tried out a string of snazzy hairstyles including bleached locks, braids and a scraped back ponytail and kept quiet on whether she had actually chopped off her luscious long hair to look like her mother.

But fans flocked to her page and complimented the brunette beauty on the family resemblance.

One admirer said: ''You look just like your momma here! I hope I look as good as my mum when I get older.''

Another wrote: ''Holy... Kim looks almost exactly like her.''

Kim - who has siblings Kourtney Kardashian, 37, Khloe Kardashian, 32, Rob Kardashian, 30, and Kendall, 21 and Kylie, 19, Jenner - recently said she's desperate to have more children but won't have as many as Kris.

Speaking on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians', the star - who already has 12-month old son Saint and North, 3, with her husband Kanye West - said: ''I want my kids to have siblings. I'm going to try to have one more baby.''

However, she added that medical experts it may not be ''safe'' for her to conceive for a third time.

She explained: ''But the doctors don't feel like it's safe for me.''
