Taylor Momsen: Grunge Queenette

So, admittedly, I have never watched an episode of Gossip Girl in my life, but someone who's style has caught my eye recently is Taylor Momsen.  Yes I'm talking about that ratty tall blonde 16 year old with the smudgy eye makeup.

So what actually brought her to my full attention was her band The Pretty Reckless and their new single 'Make Me Wanna Die'.  Firstly, she has such a mature sounding rock voice, and she writes all of her songs and plays guitar, having already been a part of the Warped Tour and signed to Interscope Records, and of course there is the TV show she's on, all at the age of 16.

Her band's sound, like her look, channels a little bit of Courtney Love (but with a better voice) grunge princess style... I thought I'd share some of my fave looks.

Taylor on her look:

"I'm actually designing all of my costumes. It's a rock band, so there's not costume changes but there's definitely a look."


  1. I absolutely love Taylor Momsen, She is nothing but amazing, her fashion sense preceeds her age and yet and still people are still learning from her, that is a role model, why can't we have more of her around?

  2. She has a truly unique style, gotta love her!
