What's that glimmer of gold on Daria Werbowy’s right nostril on the cover of August’s Vogue Paris [1]? “She’s wearing a nose ring?!” We screamed. Yes. And again on the cover of September's British Vogue [2]long gone are the days of airbrushing tattoos and piercings. So, too, is the mysterious U.K.-based singer FKA Twigs, whose septum jewelry is on full display in her new "Water Me" video. (Watch it; it's really good.) And following J. Colby Smith’s Instagram earlier this week of the most delicate of nose chains and our little NARS campaign featuring Laurel Pantin, we’re going to go ahead and call a new (/old) nose-piercing trend. Add model Anja K, Zoe Kravitz, and Langley Hemingway to the mix we’re already rekindling our high-school resentment towards our parents for forbidding facial piercings… Does Mom really know best? Sure, there are plenty of non-permanent options, but with two huge magazines giving the cover stamp of approval, there's no time like the present to channel Janet Jackson in “Together Again.” Now, to get an appointment at New York Adorned

    I've had a septum and nostril ring for years now, nice to see that they're finally catching on again!

Dearest ITG Reader,
