Gap teeth have never gone out of style for me. I’ve always been a lover of things that are different from the norm. It’s not often that you see ladies rockin’ a front gap, but when you do, it’s almost refreshing!
A lot of people born with gap teeth get them corrected (like Demi Lovato) or their teeth will naturally correct themselves. I’m a fan of the gap so I don’t know why people would purposely choose to rid themselves of such a cute natural accessory. I used to have a gap when I was young, but it closed up unfortch. Bummer.
One of my favorite seasons of America’s Next Top Model featured a contestant who had a frontal gap in her teeth that the judges suggested she get fixed. I couldn’t believe that people who worked in the fashion industry would tell someone to get rid of a part of them that made them unique! Luckily, the contestant was adamant about keeping her gap as her trademark and met the judges halfway by closing it in a bit.
Here are some of my favorite gap-toothed beauties:
Georgia May Jagger is at the top of my list. It doesn’t hurt to have Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall as your parents. Georgia has proved her worth in my eyes by becoming a model and staying true to her gap.
Vanessa Paradis AKA ex-wife of Johnny Depp really intrigues me for some reason. Did you know she’s a French pop-star? Oh, well she is. You should probably download some of her soft melodies and let her whisk you away to Paris.
Lara Stone is a Dutch model who has been ruling the zines for a while now. All thanks to her signature gap methinks.
Anna Paquin won me over when she was a young lass in The Piano. Her little accent and bonnet stole the show…and it didn’t hurt that she rocked a gap.
Lauren Hutton is an old school model–one of the gap originators. However, in older shoots, she does a lot of closed-mouth smiling. Was she unsure of her gap? Did photographers tell her to close her mouth? The world may never know.
Jess Hart is one of my newest obsessions. This Aussie model is making me so happy because she flaunts her gorgeous smile all the time. I cannot get enough of her.
Lindsay Wixson has mesmerized me for years now. Her look is so different from anyone I’ve ever seen. She’s had a huge career after only a couple of years. I’m assuming it’s all thanks to her gap.
Do you have any girl (or guy) crushes with gap teeth?
