Why Celebrities Are Keeping (and Celebrating) Their Gap Teeth

QUOTE
Having gap teeth isnít a new concept at all, with Madonna and Elton John being the firsts in the music industry to really embrace theirs. And on the fashion front, Lauren Hutton and Vanessa Paradis were the OG supers who spearheaded the then-novel idea of imperfection at a time when perfection was demanded from models. But the difference between now and then is our attitudeóhaving gap teeth has evolved from a flaw that needed to be fixed, to a feature that was merely tolerated, to something thatís to be desired. The roster of in-demand, gap-tooth models, including Georgia May Jagger, Lily Aldridge, Lara Stone, Jessica Hart, Lindsey Wixson, and Abby Lee Kershaw, speaks to this shift.

My mum has a fairly big gap between her teeth and so i've always found it cute heehee.gif

Also I never really noticed M's as being so prominent until Gaga paid homage to it in the BTW music video:

Never understood how it fluctuates in prominence but yeah it's pretty iconic, like it's the first thing people think about when it comes to impersonating Madonna or making spoofs. Like vibe said though, it's great she's not wanted to remove it.
