Buck teeth models ... and stylish stubble.

I was leafing through one of those high end glossy magazines - the kind that sell expensive clothing, jewellery and watches - and noticed a strange pattern. Most of the female models, the ones who were smiling (or pouting) had buck teeth.

It’s not natural for the teeth to meet exactly on point of the incisors. A slight overbite is natural. Only a couple of these models have what I would consider a severe overbite or buck teeth.

That’s interesting! My 14 year old daughter has an overbite and we don’t have the money to get her braces. I’ve always felt bad about it, but now I see that she might have a career in modeling! :-)

Back around 1965 I met a professional photographer, a successful one too.

We were discussing models and he told me what photographs best. The only thing I remember is he said they should have slightly buck teeth.

Of course he said slightly, not big buck teeth.

Bah....who knew I was a trend setter? I’ve had the stubble look for years because I hate shaving every day.

My daughter is almost 20. One of her front teeth is crooked and I felt horrible for not being able to get it fixed for her. (We gave her a choice: We can buy you a car or get your teeth fixed. She told us to help her with transportation so she could get a job, then she’d fix her own teeth.)

She doesn’t mind it though. “Nobody’s ever looking at my teeth!” :)

For young men, I simply don't get the fascination with the "Faux Hawk" (I call it the Cockatoo-do) and the 2 day unshaven look.

Get a comb and buy a razor. Do chicks like that crap?

You are right about the stubble, wrong about the teeth.
None of those models/actresses show (including the sexy
Jessica Simpson) has buck teeth. What you’re seeing is evidence of the new imperative for this kind of fashion
photography you see in upscale mags-—they’re ALWAYS supposed to keep their lips parted, never closed. Lips parted adds to the allure,for obvious reasons.
Now stop complaining about buck teeth, and start attacking
real problems like cellulite!

As someone who has had way too much spent on orthodontics, having an overbite isn’t that unusual.

I had to have several sets of braces as well as oral surgery, and the results left me with a slight overbite as well.

My parents had an overbite and an underbite respectively, my dentist laughed that the fact that two people with such mismatched jaws would have children.

Personally, stubble on a mans face looks like someone who can’t commit. Either shave it off, or go full beard. None of this half way stuff. (IMHO). ;-)

I’m partial to beards, myself.

Find the money to get your daughter braces. If you have to, quit dinking around on this blog and get yourself a second, or third job....

They have a slight overbite, not buck teeth. Most of them have had rather expensive orthodontia to produce that effect.

What they also have is a short upper lip that reveals the upper incisors. Babies and children tend to have a short upper lip, and as we age our upper lips get longer; hence, a model who has a shorter upper lip and reveals her upper incisors when she parts her lips is perceived by the viewer as being younger (= nubile, = fertile, = sexy). Someone whose upper lip is longer, even if she is the same age, runs the risk of looking angry when she leaves her mouth open slightly. So model agencies and their clients prefer to use models with this look.

The stubble look somehow doesn’t look so good with white mixed in with dark hair.

I know a young woman in her 30s who paid for her own dental work, starting about 8 years ago. I just saw her 2 weeks ago for the first time in a couple of years and she looks fabulous, with even teeth. She had incisors that didn’t descend completely, plus the rest of her teeth were noticeably misaligned. She may also have had veneers, but her teeth now look perfect. When she was a teen, she was an unremarkable girl, physically, gangly and shy. She and her siblings had a very poor childhood. Today, she could be a model, although she actually is an RN in charge of a large home health care operation. One sibling is not doing as well, but still managed to complete her National Guard stint, while the other is employed by a major corporation that is also paying for him to complete his PhD.

This woman paid for her own education, as well. She is now doing quite well, all on her own. Her boyfriend is also totally self-made, drives a paid-for Porsche, lives in a paid-for home on a decent sized property and he and his brother have just hired their parents to work in their business.

Tell your daughter to start saving, because not only do people notice, but misalignments cause other problems, later on.

I know and agree, I was trying for a little humor. The effect is exactly as you say: the image of youth, barely out of her teens (or not yet out), fresh and sexy. I just thought it was curious because the "look" is almost all the same. I'm rather more curious about the unshaven male look. Since I don't look at men as sex objects, I wonder who decides that this look is particularly attractive to either men or women. It may be tested and it may be a byproduct of some Hollywood actor's look, but since I don't go to movies or watch much in the way of TV films, I was curious.

For some reason, the moderator took my picture down, which was a shame. It didn't show anything you don't see on the beach every day. And her teeth were beautiful!

P.S. On many European beaches you see a lot more.

Let's see, if I stop spending 20 minutes a day on FR, that would free me up about 2 hours and 20 minutes per week for a job. What a GREAT idea!!!!! Why didn't I think of that?

It’s attractive in a way, but impractical. In a photograph I like the look, but in real life when I encounter a man like this I’m dismayed and wonder if he’s trying unsuccessfully to grow a beard, if he hasn’t slept for four days, or if he’s just an ad agency exec/hippie wannabe/male model/gay guy. I certainly don’t want him kissing me, as that stubble will turn my face to hamburger. A neat, clean beard is okay, since it’s soft, but the stubble thing does not work.

It seems a bit dated, since the guy who popularized the look, Don Johnson from Miami Vice, got this started many years ago. Today the starter beard is there to indicate that the model is an adult male and not a sulking teenage boy.

Many moons ago I had a philosophy professor who was years ahead of his time in the stubble look. Somehow he always managed to have enough whiskers that itched (scratched them throughout the class) but not enough to qualify as a beard. I didn't have the nerve to tell him, "Either shave or grow a beard, damn it!" Maybe he just liked to scratch or he was the model for Dr. House.
