Are Gap Teeth the Next Big Beauty Feature?

Are Gap Teeth the Next Big Beauty Feature?

Remember when Angelina Jolie started the vogue for majorly pillowy pouts, practically launching the entire lip plumping industry? Well now, according to The Wall Street Journal, it looks like gap teeth could be the next big "It" facial feature.

With young stars like Anna Paquin, Demi Lovato, and model Lara Stone wearing their diastema (the dental term for a gap) proudly, apparently some people like the look so much they're having a gap put in their teeth to add to their sex appeal. Putting aside the fact that declaring a part of someone's body to be "cool" or not is kind of absurd in the first place, do you think we'll all be wearing faux gaps in a few years' time, or will a gap-toothed smile remain a pretty, but relatively unique, feature?

I'll just consider this post a birthday present. I've got a gap and for years looked to Ms Hutton for inspiration, so to hear it's a fashion trend!!?? Well, Happy Birthday to me!!!

I have a gap in my teeth. In process of getting it fixed with braces right now. Although I think it's great when people accentuate their differences, I definitely can't wait til my teeth are all together.

I'm all for celebrating differences and all that makes us uniquely us... but that's really such an easy fix and it doesn't really suit her.

Natural gaps are fine, having them put in though? Thats too much

Natural gaps can be quite charming. But getting one put in is ridiculous.

It's cute. I always like when an actor/actress has a unique feature. But I definitely wouldn't be changing my teeth around if it was to become a trend.

It's kind of dumb to turn it into a trend, but I don't think there's anything wrong with imperfect teeth. I can get on the flawed but authentic bandwagon.

I like it. It works for Madonna, Lauren Hutton and Jorja Fox.

Yeah, this isn't going to be like Cindy Crawford's mole. There is a thin line between adorable smile flaw and jacked up teeth.
