Swept up in the wake of Daria Werbowy’s Isabel Marant x H&M ad campaign and the effortless cool-girl vibe she emits, we can’t help but try and emulate her by way of nostril jewelry.
We sat here mustering up the courage to pierce our own noses — Parent-Trap-style with an ice cube and sewing needle — and just as Amelia was sterilizing the needle with a match I cried out dramatically, “It doesn’t have to be like this!”
Piercing a body part is a commitment, one I have only taken part in once. I was 19 when I got my ears pierced and then subsequently let them close back up, so I’m now a major advocator of fake jewelry that allows you to evade the commitment aspect while still enjoy the perks of changing up your look.
These packages of ear/nose/lip cuffs from ASOS are an easy, inexpensive way to change up your face and ears. You can double up with simple gold and silver ones, go for embellishment by way of gems, and experiment with spikes and chains if that’s your thing. Or maybe you prefer one large ear-statement piece, in which case this Annelise Michelson one rocks.
What are your thoughts? Would you try this look if it meant your face could remain un-punctured? Or should we all just leave this look to Daria?
