What makes for beautiful, how does one react to imperfection and why is it that sometimes being off the mark is more beautiful than being on the mark? These are some of the questions one may find themselves asking themselves after a recent sit down interview with Georgia May Jagger who contemplated on the complexities of having imperfect teeth.
Needless to say her imperfect teeth have garnered world fame, a bounty of modeling campaigns and instant recognition where ever she goes, that besides being an offspring of famed Rolling Stones rocker Mick Jagger.
Nevertheless the model went on to reveal in a candid feature with net a porter that she worries that her famous gap will not come out looking so well for her as she ages.
Reflected the model whose tooth gap smile has led to a bounty of other women (Lara Stone, Lindsey Wixson and Jessica Hart) with similar gap smiles to enjoy high fashion careers:
“I still worry I’m going to look weird as I get older. I’ll be a weird old woman with scary teeth. There’s this whole idea of perfection [in modeling]. What younger girls don’t realize is that these girls do have problems. It’s good for people to realize everyone is human. I still worry I’m going to look weird as I get older. I’ll be a weird old woman with scary teeth.”
To date the model has resisted all attempts at fixing the wide tooth gap smile saying that she has come to accept the imperfection and reveling in it not that of course she is not necessarily aware of the consistent pressure and demands made on her to appear perfect.
“There have been some interesting debates about my teeth on Instagram. When 12-year-olds tell you to go get braces and then someone answers, ‘Don’t tell her what to do’, that’s really sweet. “
Because even a supermodel has to fret that she’s not good looking enough for society…
