Heidi Klum's Cornrows: Are They In ... Or Are They Out?

Heidi Klum cornrows Javier Mateo/Startraks

We’ve seen tons of stars experiment with super-tight braids this summer, but Heidi Klum is never one to merely give a trend a try.

That’s why we weren’t surprised to see her step out with a full head of cornrowed braids (and a beachy Theodora & Callum scarf) in N.Y.C. on Sunday, fresh from her Bahamian vacation.

Anyone who visited the Bahamas in middle school knows the allure of coming back with beaded cornrows or hair wraps to show that you went on a cool, tropical vacation. And in fact, Klum did seem to have gotten her braided style in solidarity with her two daughters, who sported similar looks.

Klum can pull off things the rest of us mere mortals cannot, but we’re split on the Bo Derek look on the N.Y.C. streets. Half of us think it should stay on the beach, and the other half think it’s a creative way to stay cool in the city’s scorching temperatures.

Tell us: Where do you fall in the great braid debate?

I am sure she paid big bucks for them, so she is keeping them as long as possible

What’s all this prejudice against white women I see here?
It;s a free country for all to wear whatever hair style they want too.

Nobody dared to question the silliness or sexiness of Queen Bey’s braids when she visited Cuba earlier this year. Heidi’s hair is being scrutinized b/c she is white. Way to be ridiculous, People.

This look is so ghetto on anyone.

Well, she acts a complete idiot, so it fits her…..she’s a tool
