Weave to the rescue!

While chatting with E! News during NBC and Time Inc.'s celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue at the Dolby Theatre on Tuesday, Jan. 14 in Hollywood, Calif., Rebecca Romijn shared her favorite SI memory...and it's not exactly what you would expect! 

"One time I was in Mexico with Tyra [Banks] and we were playing in the waves and she got slammed under the sand and she hit her head," the 41-year-old beauty recalled with a laugh.

Don't worry—she wasn't amused by Tyra's tumble. "And she got up, and I was nervous—like, oh god she cracked her head," the supermodel continued.

But lucky for Banks, the America's Next Top Model host's hair saved the day.

"I mean she was holding her head," Romijn said. "And she got up and she went, 'I think my weave saved my life.'"

Talk about a memorable moment!

The blond beauty, who debuted a trendy bob hairstyle in November, looked stunning and sexy at the event, sporting a sparkly black mini dress that showed off her enviable figure and a pair of sky-high silver pointed toe heels.

Additional attendees included Kate Upton, who's starred on the last two swimsuit covers, as well as Chrissy Teigen, Marisa Miller, Katherine Webb, Heidi Klum and many more.
