Trend Alert! Septum Piercings are Suddenly Back In

131

THE LOOK:
Hoops between the nostrils. This piercing trend comes out of South Asia, where Bengali women wear a “nathori,” or Indian septum piercing, to signify marital status. In southern Nepal, it signifies social, tribal, and religious standings. In the ‘90s, the look became a staple accessory of the grunge generation. Now it’s back thanks to A-listers with a thing for unique jewelry placement.

WHO’S SPORTING IT:
Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Zoë Kravitz, Lady Gaga, and Cailin Russo
