Bella Hadid’s Latest Bling Is Not What You'd Expect

We've seen a lot of beauty comebacks this year. First, lip gloss was revived from the deep, dark corners of our middle school bathrooms and Claire’s backstock. Same for hair bows. And now, it seems as though another accessory is resurfacing and we bet you won’t guess what it is — or better yet, who’s trying to bring it back around. Enter: teeth jewelry.

Now, to give credit where credit is very much due, this is clearly a minimalist take on gold caps and grills popularized in the ‘80s, largely by the hip hop community. And even in the decades after that, rappers like Paul Wall, Ludacris, and Lil Jon are just a small fraction of the men and women who rocked teeth bling during its rise.(And the history of grills even predates them.)

While only a few celebrities still openly rock the glistening accessory, it seems as though a new, daintier version is making its way around Instagram from stars like Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Katy Perry, and Rihanna. But let's not forget that they're certainly not the first.

Check out some recent examples in the slides ahead.

Bella Hadid shows off her latest bling on Instagram — and it's nearly blinding.
Baldwin posed with her new jewels back in April on social media, sending fans into a tizzy.
Halsey was spotted on Instagram at the beginning of 2017 rocking a gold star on her tooth.
Adwoa Aboah proves the accessory is here to stay. We first spotted the model on the cover of i-D last August rocking her very own Chanel tooth jewel. Almost a year later and the tiny detail is still going strong.
This is definitely not a trend to try at home; be sure to seek professional help to avoid damaging your teeth and enamel.
The only thing sparklier than glitter lips? Glitter teeth.
Even Cara Delevingne got in on the look. Maybe she consulted BFF Aboah on the design?
