I’ve written about the gap-toothed trend here two times before (here and here) because I have a gap between my front teeth. Finally, I am organically on trend! The other day, I was actually wondering if, because of all the famous people rocking a gap between their teeth—from models to actresses—some people would actually get a gap put between their teeth. Sure enough, the Wall Street Journal reports folks are doing just that.

After the death of his father, fashion designer David Delvin had a dentist put a gap put between his teeth because: “It was a metaphor for the separation I was feeling.” Alrighty then! The Journal goes on to speculate that the spacey smile is coveted these days as it provides a unique “character” alternative to the overly airbrushed, seemingly “perfect” images that proliferate throughout pop culture. Lindsey Wixson, Anna Paquin, and Georgia Jagger are all name-checked as leaders in the gap-toothed movement.

Hipsters without tongue studs are mimicking the damage done by hipsters with tongue studs. So amusing. :D

Maybe. Personally, I'm trying to reconcile the advantages of oral sex with a tongue stud versus the obvious disadvantages in the same scenario with gapped teeth.

Maybe I don't get out enough. :rolleyes:
