It’s easy to forget Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen is only 15 these days. Our little Jenny Humphrey has gone from prom queen to full-on rock chick in black and metallic leathers and lace, thigh-high minis and barely there basques – set off with an edgy bob and lashings of racoon-style eye liner. Her wide-eyed girlish innocence has been replaced by an awkward kind of sexiness.
Taylor has swapped CW network parties and homecoming dances for New York Fashion Week and loft parties. Recently signed to modelling agency IMG, Taylor’s new look is definitely more fashion-conscious but personally I preferred the tinkerbell dresses and tousled hair. IMG is also home to another Josh Schwartz (OC and Gossip Girl’s creator) alumni, Mischa Barton, who was just 15 when she was cast as Marissa Cooper. Could Taylor be the next IT girl? Watch this space.
