Sorry, haters — looks like that enormous Givenchy nose ring Kendall Jenner wore to Coachella over the weekend is happening. It’s also the focal point of Dazed magazine’s Willy Vanderperre-lensed Spring 2014 cover, which features Italian model Mariacarla Boscono in an array of unconventional face jewelry. Evidently Riccardo Tisci is really getting into the body mod game, with the bridge bar, studs, earrings, and second nose ring also being of his doing.
This ring style is traditionally worn by Indian women at weddings, so it makes sense that it would pop up at a cultural appropriation convention such as Coachella. Though Katy England and Panos Yiapanis‘s styling for Dazed, which included removing the ear chain and sticking it through Boscono’s septum, takes it from awkward to awesome. Or maybe we’ll just agree to disagree?
