This afternoon in NOOOOO: Taylor Momsen has signed with Next Model Management in an attempt to remain in front of our eyes post-Gossip Girl.
Grazia reports that the actress/Avril Lavigne reincarnate will be making a return to the glossy world. Momsen is apparently on the path to landing bookings in both fashion and cosmetics.
Perhaps we’re being a little harsh on the 19 year old. It’s was three whole years ago that she wore Perspex stripper heels with dollar bills inside while smoking illegally on stage. It’s certainly possible that she’s changed her stance on pants in the time since and, in fact, she even wore a pair to the Versus Versace launch last month.
Either way, this won’t be Taylor’s first attempt at modeling. She was the face of Madonna’s Material Girl before being fired shortly afterwards, and found herself more at home rolling around in lingerie and Kohl liner as the pretty unconvincing face of Galliano’s fragrance, Parlez-moi d’Amour. Unfortunately Momsen, unlike her scorned fashion designer friend, doesn’t strike us as having much taste for humble pie.
