Hollywood is totally a game of following the leader but in the case of Dolly Cohen, the leader is pretty hard to find.
Cohen is the designer behind the grillz Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, and now Drake, have been rocking. The French talent is more specifically a dental technician turned jewelry designer, who has somehow maneuvered into the ranks of young Hollywood.
What makes the metal, platinum, and ceramic pieces so unique is that they don’t need to be applied by molding a set of teeth. To the contrary, the pieces are crafted shapes that can fit within the grooves of teeth. Rihanna was most recently spotted in a AK-47 grill that she posted to Instagram.
“Each piece has a price,” Cohen told Vogue.com. “It could go from 200 euros or more. Once I create a piece, I never do it again. Anybody can ask for letters, like Cara, but for example, the AK-47 I did for Rihanna, that will be the only one.”
The trend seems to be taking off, but there doesn’t seem to be any other rising stars besides Cohen–at least in the Parisian market. What’s next for her? Lil Wayne and/or Kanye West– both artists whom she’s already working with. “I think Kanye West is a dream. I want to change his permanent grill.”
