Gold Grillz — A Fashionable Accessory ? Watch Cosmo’s Shiona Turini Get Hers Made

Gold Grillz — A Fashionable Accessory ? Watch Cosmo’s Shiona Turini Get Hers Made

Necole Bitchie Shiona Turini Cosmo Magazine ShootMeet Shiona Turini!  She’s the fly and fearless new Fashion Market Director at Cosmo Magazine, and she’s also a Hampton University alumni (Woot Woot!) My high school best friend went there!

Now, Shiona is definitely not one of those chicks that you’d expect to see flossing a new pair of gold grillz, but recently, she decided she wanted to channel her inner Beyonce –or shall we say Baddie Bey– so she ventured into Rafaello & Co. in New York City to get some custom bottoms made. And she documented it all on video!

In the short 2 minute clip, we get to see the exact process of creating the grillz. From sizing the client’s mouth, to placing the actual bling onto a compound.  The process takes about a day (maybe more if you really want to do it big!).

The results:

Watch Shiona get her grillz made, plus come of my favorite fly chicks who rocked out in grillz below:

    I just feel like grills are played. Even the “cool kids” already did it twice.

    Wish I could afford some: (

    Some people wear it as everyday accessories and some just for videos or performances. I could wear it once as part of a costume but not everyday.

    I don’t like grills if your going to get them get the real thing a lot of things are “Ghetto” let others tell it I’ve had my teeth done when I was 17 it ruins your teeth so that’s why I am getting them remove and nothing is ghetto about me I have education, know how to act civil when it’s given in return, I also pay my own bills so have several seats please and thank you that’s what’s wrong with people today you just look at people and assume you know something smh

    It can be very cute, just like hoop earrings or dookie braids, or any other super trendy thing we do… everything is not for everyone but that’s fashion…
