It’s hard to believe that Taylor Momsen is only 21 years old. She has already been apart of one of the worlds most popular t.v shows of all time (Gossip Girl, duh!) and is the front woman of a bad ass rock band called The Pretty Reckless. Taylor’s style transformation from her Gossip Girl days, playing fashion obsessed Jenny Humphrey, to her ball busting rock chick persona has been really interesting to watch. In 2011 she quite acting and happily left behind her Gossip Girl persona to start her rock band and finally free herself from the character that made her famous worldwide.
Near the end of her time on Gossip Girl, it was clear that Taylor had enough of catering to the role of Jenny. She has said in the past that Gossip Girl was just a job and nothing more. Soon enough, Jenny’s character was starting to morph into Taylor Momsen, wearing heavy black eyeliner and blonde hair extensions, which she is famous for. Taylor began expressing herself through her own personal style and it was the polar opposite to Jenny Humphrey’s girly girl style.
Taylor’s style is so brave and daring, it’s hard not to love it! I personally love her trademark knee high cyber boots, with the thick buckles going all the way up the boot. To make her look really stand out, she usually pairs her boots with some sexy thigh high tights and a garter belt. A lot of her clothing choices are classic rock chick pieces, like a studded belt, band tee and leather jacket.
She adds her own flare to them by accessorizing.
Accessories can really make and outfit and Taylor Momsen knows this. She loves to accessorize her outfits by layering rosary beads over pendant necklaces and leather chokers. Chokers are a staple item of Taylor’s. She likes them all, studded, spiked, lace, you name it!
Taylor also loves wearing stacks of rings, she usually wears silver and gold, sometimes even together! She isn’t afraid to mix it up and take some risks but she can also keep it casual in a black knitted beanie hat during sound checks and when she’s out and about on her days off.
Another staple accessory for any rock chick is her tinted sunglasses, Taylor usually wears a pair of classic tinted black Aviators sunglasses. Sunglasses really are a fun way to change up your look without over accessorizing and can be helpful to keep your anonymity, especially when you are a famous celeb. Plus, they make you look stylish without having to make any effort at all!
Taylor Momsen’s make-up look is my far the most striking thing about her entire look in my opinion. Her bold, statement make-up really makes an impact and her dark, smokey eyes are a key component if you are trying to recreate her look. This heavy eye make up isn’t for everyone but it’s actually quite a simple look to achieve once you have a solid black eyes shadow and the patience to blend it out! Sometimes Taylor changes it up by wearing a burgundy eye shadow.
On her lips, Taylor mostly keeps it neutral by wearing a nude lip but if she’s feeling daring, she usually applies a red lip for more drama. The thing I love about Taylor is that she isn’t afraid to play around with her look, so sometimes she can be seen sporting black or purple lips.
Makeup is supposed to be fun, so take a leaf out of Taylor’s book and play around with it!
I think it is safe to say that Taylor Momsen doesn’t give a fu*ck what others think of her style and isn’t bravery and a carefree attitude towards fashion the best accessory of all?
I think so anyway!
