Kim Kardashian's new look.

While the rest of the world is keeping up with the Kardashians, middle sis Kim is keeping up with … Bo Derek?

The 30-year-old reality star débuted a head full of cornrows as she left the gym in Los Angeles—a bold move for someone whose long, dark waves are a signature look.

Kardashian is the latest celebrity to dabble with the just-back-from-the-Bahamas braided do, which has also been road-tested in the past by the likes of Christina Aguilera, David Beckham, Juliette Lewis and Gwen Stefani.

Just Jared speculates that the cornrows are intended for the budding fashion designer’s debut music video with Kanye West. Maybe she’s bringing in the big guns to follow up those “dead” zombie models from West’s new “Monster” video?
