Many of us take part in superstitious rituals, whether it's avoiding walking underneath ladders, knocking on wood or dreading Friday the 13th, and it turns out celebrities are no exception.
Whether it's healing crystals, baby teeth or a toothbrush, find out the lucky charms these celebrities can't live without.
Posh Spice Girl turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham swears by crystals and carries a collection of them with her everywhere. She revealed to ELLE, "I like to surround myself with positive energy, and so often have a little collection of crystals in my handbag." Daily Mail UK reported she passes them to her team as part of a pre-show ritual to bring good luck. It seems Beckham's love of crystals knows no bounds as she even designed wide-leg pants with secret pockets to store the healing rocks for her Pre-Fall 2018 collection.
Though Ariana Grande may have run into bad luck over the doughnut-licking controversy a few years ago, it turns out the sugary treats are actually a good luck charm for the singer. She revealed on Twitter that she would eat chocolate donuts before auditions when she was little.
Tennis champion Serena Williams is very superstitious when it comes to her pre-game ritual. She admitted in an interview with The Daily Mail that she has "...too many superstitious rituals and it's annoying. It's like I have to do it and if I don't then I'll lose." To ward off bad luck, she must bring her shower sandals to the court, wear the same pair of socks throughout a tournament, tie her shoes in a specific way and bounce the ball five times before her first serve.
Heidi Klum admitted to Jay Leno on his late night talk show that she carries a pouch of her baby teeth everywhere for good luck. The German model told Entertainment Weekly, "Well, I don’t, like, advertise it. No, I did show somebody once and it fell under the seat and the flight attendant came over and he’s like, ”Can I help you?” and I was like, ”Yeah, I’m just looking for my teeth.” And he’s like, ”Oh.” I had to find it — it’s not good luck if I leave the tooth on the plane."
Coldplay musician and co-inventor of 'conscious uncoupling' Chris Martin can't start a concert without a bathroom essential. According to Vogue Italia, Martin's pre-concert ritual is to brush his teeth.
Younger star Hilary Duff has a sweet and sentimental meaning behind her lucky charm, a dragonfly pin. She explained to Racked, “I have a little dragonfly pin that my grandmother gave me that I actually wore on my wedding dress when I got married,” She added, “It’s one of my most prized possessions.”
According to the New York Post, supermodel Naomi Campbell is super superstitious and wears an evil-eye necklace for good luck. She sported the pendant during her testimony against Liberian president Charles Taylor during his war-crimes trial in 2010.
Shay Mitchell joins the long list of celebrities tapping into the crystal trend. The Pretty Little Liars actress always carries a calming crystal in her purse claiming it makes her feel better and keeps her grounded.
Taylor Swift's lucky charm is actually a number. The singer's love of the number 13 has been well-documented and is known to write the number on her hand for every performance. She told MTV in 2009, “I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first #1 song had a 13-second intro," She adds, “every time I’ve won an award I’ve been seated in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter.”
