(Newser) – The fashion industry is bored with perfection. This year, the most sought-after models are gracing runways with offbeat looks: albino coloring, tattoos and piercing, and gap teeth. Especially gap teeth. High-profile ad campaigns are snapping up models with space between their two front teeth, and the look is also hot in Hollywood, where stars like Anna Paquin and Elisabeth Moss flash gap-toothed smiles, the Wall Street Journal reports.
