FKA Twigs once considered getting a full set of veneers because she felt her teeth were too "weird".

In an interview for British Vogue, the singer-songwriter recalled how she set up an appointment with a dentist when she was 20 in order to get a Hollywood-style smile, but later changed her mind.

"I have really weird, crazy teeth. When I was 20, I was going to get a full set of veneers," she said. "I got all the treatments and all the prep done, but the week before I cancelled it."

FKA Twigs, real name Tahliah Barnett, went on to describe how she knew she made the right decision at a photoshoot with photographer Alasdair McLellan a short time later.

"We were all at the pub and he was doing a shoot for Beat magazine and he asked if I wanted to be in it," the 34-year-old continued. "So, I turned up on the day with my hair scraped back, wearing red lipstick, and he was just like, 'Go on, get them teeth out, open your mouth,' and I was just like, 'What?' Because I had such big teeth and a big gap between them, which I was really self-conscious about, I couldn't shut my mouth properly. But he just made me forget about that. He saw something different in me, and it changed my life."

FKA Twigs released mixtape Caprisongs earlier this year and was recently named as the face of Viktor & Rolf's new fragrance, Good Fortune.
