Fashionista Spotlight: Taylor Momsen

There has been tons of controversy surrounding this girl for some time, saying that she dresses far too provocative for her age, that she is a "poser," and other limitless accusations. I'll admit, some of her recent style choices have been lacking in coverage, but can you blame her? At 16-years-old and in the spotlight, I would take advantage of it as well, especially acknowledging this age as a sort of finding yourself age. And with legs like that, who wouldn't want to show them off?? On and off the Gossip Girl set, I can't help but dig her grungy-girl look. "Grunge meets Chanel" as she would say. You also have to commend her for doing her own thing. She has not only proven herself to be a good actress, but to also have some great musical sensibility shown in her performance with her band, The Pretty Reckless. I have yet to understand how she can be considered a "poser." She writes and does her own music, what more can you ask? She states, "Music is where I can be me. I really do it because I love it, honestly. It's what I want to do with my life. I mean, it's my only goal." She takes pride in what she does and I find that particularly fantastic. I'll admit, judging from some interviews I've seen by her, she does carry a bit of arrogance to her, but when you've done it all at that age, I would say she has her right to it a bit.

I personally like her style. This the first time I've heard her sing, and I actually like the song. Thanks for sharing.
I'm hosting a giveaway at my blog. Check it out!

I really dig the rocker cross hanging low over a high-waisted mini.


All this is Grace and Charm

I guess she's living the rock star lifestyle to the max. I don't think my parents would have wanted me dressing or acting like her when I was 16, but she's definately talented.

i used to LOVE her and her style, but recently i think she's gone a little overboard. though i do agree with you, she does seem very mature and i think she's a pretty talented actress. she's only 16, maybe she'll calm down abit when shes 18. i think she's just showing off the fact that shes not a sweet innocent little girl anymore
