Kim Kardashian 'Haute Muse' Cover Channels Frida Kahlo (PHOTOS)

Newly single Kim Kardashian poses against a striking red backdrop for the December cover of Haute Muse magazine.

In the mag, Kim waxes enthusiastic about her adventures in the Middle East (where she was photographed wearing a burqa), according to Bossip:

"I've been having so much fun in Dubai. I love it here so much. I've never been to Armenia, where my family is from and this is my first time to the Middle East, so I'm thankful for such a warm welcome. It feels like home."

We think Kim looks gorgeous with her ruby lips, dramatic eyebrows, statement metal earrings and sheer black top, and we couldn't help but be reminded of another dark-haired beauty: famous artist Frida Kahlo. Do you agree? Check out our comparison, and the mag cover, below.
