An article in Lemondrop reports that bad teeth are hot right now. Â Model Ruth Crilly has said that the gap between her teeth has helped her career because it makes her face more memorable. Â Of course, this is nothing new: Â model Lauren Hutton’s gap-toothed smile was popular even back in the ’60s. Â According to the Wall Street Journal, gapped-toothed models were in hot demand during Fashion Week this year.
I have always been of the (cruel) view that if a person is extremely ugly, no amount of dental work can make up for more obvious flaws. Â For instance, a nose job for a particularly heinous nose might be a better way to spend one’s money than on braces for that same person’s slight overbite. Â I realize this might make me a terrible person, but I also think it might have to do with the fact that I barely notice people’s teeth unless they are truly disgusting. Â Therefore, a gapped-tooth smile is not at all off-putting to me.
