Clearly, Tyra Banks reads the Body Odd. We recently told you about the unlikely rise of the diastema (so hot right now), and on last night's "America's Next Top Model," one of the aspiring models got a makeover that included some terrifying dental work.
Chelsey Hersey, a 22-year-old blonde from Idaho, came to the competition with an adorable gap between her two front teeth -- a gap that Banks wanted to make even wider, in an attempt to make her look more like gap-toothed model and actress Lauren Hutton. So a cosmetic dentist, using what looked like a gigantic power tool, shaved off 0.25 millimeters off each tooth.
Shudder. My teeth still hurt just thinking about it.
