Khloe Kardashian is giving off a serious Rihanna vibe in her new photo shoot for YRB Magazine!

The photos, just released today, show the reality TV star working some crazy couture while rocking red hair. The shoot was actually done before Khloe actually dyed her locks -- but she says it was the "inspiration" for the change.

Khloe blogged about the shoot on her website, saying "YRB is known for being very wild and crazy with the content they publish, so I jumped at the chance to work with them! I love experimenting with different looks and this was the perfect opportunity for me to do that."

The photos were taken by Mike Ruiz -- check out the full set!
