We've gone gaga over Lara Stone's "edgy" gap and adore Kirsten Dunst for embracing her "snaggle fangs." But, coveting crooked teeth of your very own? Definitely not something on most to-do lists. Unless, of course, you live in Japan.
Apparently jacked-up teeth are the newest trend to hit our Far East friends. Said to be found attractive by Japanese men (they claim snaggletooth girls are more easily approachable than those with a perfect smile), flocks of ladies are going to extreme measures to obtain a look called "yaeba," which translates to "double tooth."
We've seen something similar with the whole vampire fang trend, but that was connected to a bizarre fascination with blood-sucking night dwellers. The idea that women are actively trying to screw up their perfect smiles in order to get attention from the opposite sex is a little depressing, but then again, is there really a difference between wanting crooked teeth and injecting collagen into your face?
