Is it just me …Or is a gap-toothed smile sexier than perfect teeth?

Is it just me …Or is a gap-toothed smile sexier than perfect teeth? asks SIMON MILLS

  • Simon Mills says a girl’s midline diastema is attractive to red-blooded men
  • He was heart broken to learn that Dakota Johnson corrected the gap in her teeth
  • He says Madonna and Brigitte Bardot should never surrender to braces

Posing on the red carpet at the premiere of her new movie this summer, Dakota Johnson broke into a smile . . . and broke my heart.

Her grin revealed newly minted Californian dentistry; the gap in her front teeth — that delightful imperfection — now corrected.

Bereft and inconsolable at this bland amelioration, I re-watched a charming film short of Dakota putting various items — paper clip, 11 $100 bills, credit card etc. — in between her front teeth to remind me of the Fifty Shades Of Grey star’s happy gappy years.

You see, for a robust and red-blooded man, a girl’s midline diastema is very, very sexy.

Women with gappy teeth are the stuff of wayward, nouvelle vague film fantasies; the sort of girls who could get a nice, sensible man into serious trouble. A girl with what the French call les dents de la chance (lucky teeth) will be insolent, passionate, promiscuous and mischievous. In turns, delirious and tempestuous, lush, divine and impossible — like Beatrice Dalle in Betty Blue.

Madonna, Vanessa Paradis, Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin should never surrender to the train-track or Invisalign. Yes, gap-toothed models such as Lauren Hutton, Lara Stone and Georgia May Jagger have all been tempted, but wisely, not yet succumbed.

‘I like the fact I have good old-fashioned British teeth with a big gap,’ says Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall’s daughter. ‘Who wants those gleaming white, cosmetically enhanced American teeth?’

The good news is that Dakota Johnson is getting a new retainer and her celebrated, sexy diastema is set for a comeback. So vive les dents de la chance!
