Who Wears the Chunky Side-Braid Best?

Over the past few days, it's been chunky side braids aplenty. While various types of braids have been hot for years now, check out how these three women put their own twist on this trend below. Jessica Simpson stepped out for Easter dinner with the family at first wearing this classic French braid, which mysteriously disappeared before she left the restaurant. Drew Barrymore paired her braid with a retro twist and some serious red lipstick while promoting her new film on Live With Regis and Kelly. As for Nicole Richie, she chose a casual wraparound braid with long, heavy bangs when she was out and about in LA. So, tell me. When it comes to these three takes on the braid to the side, which one is tops in your book?

It's a tie b/w Drew and Nicole...hey, is there a how to for Drew's look? I'm guessing there may be one for Nicole's otherwise it's easy to figure out but a tutorial on Drew's look would be cool :)

Nicole rocks the look, as it looks so natural on her. The others just try too hard. I used to rock this style when i was 6 ;)

Drew is the most daring and I think she can pull any hairstyle off! She is always so different! LOVE HER!

Drew's is my favorite! Nicole's isn't bad either. Not a fan of Jess's though. I love braids! So boho-hippie chic...I need to rock this style.

i like drew's braid the most, i guess it's because i generally don't like bangs.

Jessica's is too overdone, Nicole looks like a milkmaid, and Drew's is boho but pretty.

I think they all look adorable. I chose Nicole's as the best look, though. I think she pulls off the casual, messy-hippie hair look (although her sunglasses kinda make her look like a bug here). 2nd fave would be Drew's and then 3rd Jessica's. I agree w/ other commenters that, although it's cute-as-can-be, Jessica's look is a little too "perfect."
