Team USA Olympic swim champ Ryan Lochte turned heads and made headlines when he donned a blingy American flag grill across his front teeth in London on Friday--a move which reportedly almost cost him his gold medal in the 400m individual medley. But what was all the fuss about? Teeth tinsel of the non-corrective variety has existed across continents for decades--symbolizing wealth, and saving at least one life in the process. Nelly, the same guy who wrote the classic tune "Hot in Here," even wrote a song about grills a few years back. Does it get any more legit than that? It's doubtful.
But amidst all the mouth bling hubbub, we can't forget another grill that rules our eating habits in the summertime: Actual grills, like, of the barbecuing variety. What better way to celebrate the grill's illustrious, celebrity-beloved history than by bringing it back to basics? So we did the only rational thing: We played Gordon Ramsey for a moment (frantic hand gestures and all) and suggested our bling-mouthed celebs with some complementary foodstuffs, of the barbecue variety. Based on their taste in bling, we think these dishes will suit their taste in outdoor dining as well. Being a grill master is one thing--but mastering two grills at once is a whole 'nother story.
Which of these gorgeously grilled stars would you like to barbecue alongside this summer?
