She’s already caused a stir with pictures of her silver corn rows.
And Kim Kardashian revealed the reason for her new hairstyle on Monday, as she shared a picture from a Bo Derek-inspired photoshoot.
Lying on the sands in a skimpy white bikini, the mother-of-three had clearly taken inspiration from Bo’s memorable look in the iconic 1979 comedy 10.
‘Straight from the polaroid’ Kim Kardashian is a perfect 10 as she wears braids and bikini to recreate Bo Derek’s iconic fantasy shoot
The image, shot in Malibu, showed Kim stretched out and carefully posed against a rocky backdrop.
‘Straight from the polaroid,’ Kim wrote of the image.
Bo wore a skimpy gold string bikini for 10, her breakout film role. But for her recreation, Kim wore a more conservative white version.
The 37-year-old had revealed her silver corn rows on Sunday in a Snapchat post – causing a stir amongst fans.
Some were annoyed that she called them her Bo Derek braids, branding her ‘disrespectful’ and accusing of her cultural appropriation.
The TV star was immediately slammed by her followers after revealing in the selfie video she was ‘really into’ her new look, inspired by the famous American actress.
One fan responded by writing: ‘I’m still a bit peeved on how @KimKardashian had the audacity to call these braids “Bo Derrick” braids’ (sic)
While another added: ‘Kim Kardashian on snap talking about some Bo Derek braids. Kim they are called CORN ROWS.’
Yet, a number of other followers rushed to defend her, and claimed fans were making a big deal out of a playful post.
One wrote: ‘What’s the problem with Kim Kardashian having braids? Stop making nothing into something.’
While others chimed in: ‘I actually like Kim’s braids lol’ and ‘You look so good with braids!!!! Haters gonna hate.’
Kim welcomed baby number three earlier this month but since she used a gestational carrier, she doesn’t have to worry about losing any pregnancy weight.
She and Kanye welcomed daughter Chicago via surrogate, due to issues Kim had suffered during her pregnancies with daughter North, four, and son Saint, two.
