What goes up must come down. It’s a simple law of gravity. So, with one normally poorly styled teen star finally wearing something worth praise, another young celebrity falls short. In this case very, very short.
Taylor Momsen’s sense of style went down the drain the second Little J became a badass rule breaker on Gossip Girl. The more famous she became, the more holes strategically appeared in her stockings. All black is chic for some — we would never go against anything Queen Cutrone does — but a little color never hurt.
Rocker girl chic? We don’t think so.
Where do we begin? The hair is too long and too bleached. Extensions should be used to make one’s hair voluminous, not dead and stringy. Combat boots can be cute — in fact, we have our eye on a certain shearling lined pair from Gucci’s fall collection — but not with sheer knee-high socks. And unless you were in Nirvana or are currently in a Nirvana cover band, the sweatshirt around the waist look is simply too difficult to pull off.
Doesn’t Taylor know it’s summer? Doesn’t she know the curse of Mischa Barton/Marissa Cooper? Just because Taylor Momsen/Jenny Humphrey is off Gossip Girl, doesn’t mean she’s off the fashion radar.
We’ll be watching her. XOXO, Styleite.
