The sexy gap tooth look has been a thing in fashion for several years now and while I love a good gap, these images always crack me up because it’s as if the models aren’t allowed to have their pictures taken with their mouths closed. Like, ever.
Photographer: “That’s it, open your mouth just a little bit more.”
Model (breathing like Darth Vader): “An we ie a few wif ie outh closed?”
Photographer: “Um, yeah, maybe we can try a few with your mouth closed. Next Tuesday. For now, open up wider. That’s it, wider. So sexy, baby.”
Model: “I ore than jus chicklets!”
Photographer: “I know you’re more than just chicklets, baby, I know you are. That’s up, open up wider.”
Model: “I wanna eath thew ie nose like a norral erson!”
Model: “Ie lips are oe chapped.”
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel too bad for those ladies because a) they’re drop dead gorgeous, gap or no gap and b) their orthodontic imperfections earn them more money than I will ever see in my lifetime (tell me where is the justice in this world???) but there must come a point in every gappy model’s career when she inspects her wafty grill and wonders, “Are they hiring me for me or for my gap?” And soon or later, they have to make peace with their role as professional mouth breather.
