As the photograph is not very clear, I am not sure if she take clothing into her mouth, the more reasonable explanation is : Japanese woman when speech or laughing at the time, exposing teeth is not a courtesy, So I guess she just cover her mouth with clothes.

And the related (Three questions), i have already leave a comment.

yes, it isn't perfectly clear, you're right, but i couldn't resist.

though i don't think that's what's happening in most of these images, i think the exposing of teeth as something you weren't supposed to do--that's interesting. thanks!
