By Philippa WarrHeidi Klum donned a Native American-inspired feathered headdress (atop a sheer vest and tight trouser combo) at Unicef's Playlist with the A-list event which sees celebrities take to the stage for a selection of musical performances. Translation: famous people karaoke night!Comment:  Regular readers have heard all the arguments against this racist stereotyping before. If you somehow missed them, see:

Everyone's wearing a headdress
