On The “Gossip Girl” Set With Taylor Momsen Wearing Emilio Pucci

After Taylor Momsen’s Teen Vogue interview she went down in a lot of our estimations.

I’ll take Miley over Taylor any day, and Miley wants to make me scratch my eyes out so that’s how low she has fallen for me.

I thew my toys out of the pram and said “life’s just not fair” that Little J got to wear this stunning Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 strapless mini dress on the “Gossip Girl” set yesterday.

I love the zipper details which expose sequin panels.

Silver ankle booties, a crucifix pendant and classic Ray Ban aviators completed the look.

From Hilary Duff’s, Leighton Meester’s and Blake Lively’s looks it’s safe to assume they are shooting a party scene.

I promise this is the last “Gossip Girl” post of today. But there are still more looks to come tomorrow. These girls are on fire.

Taylor Momsen For Teen Vogue September 2009

Whether we like it or not, it seems the rock chick look Taylor Momsen is forcing down our throats is here to stay for a while.

This is evident in her Teen Vogue September 2009 editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier.

I’m surprised they didn’t soften her like they did with Miley Cyrus. Instead they played up to the moody teenager Jenny Humphrey she plays in Gossip Girl, dressing her in edgy looks and accessorizing with studded bracelets and necklaces.

My favourite look is the Gucci Fall 2009 look below, but that picture only appears in the outtakes.

In her interview Taylor shares that she’s been acting professionally for more than a decade, yet music has always been her first passion. She recorded most of her album before signing a deal with Interscope.

“I wanted to have it all done so I could say, ‘Here’s who I am, either you like it or you don’t.'” As for her writing process, she holds nothing back admitting, “My lyrics are my diary—you’re hearing every detail on my life.”

Here are some more extracts from her interview:

On relating to other teens: “I live a very adult life: I have two different careers; I’m on tour. What am I going to do, hang out with the high school kids? I just can’t relate to what they talk about—it seems so petty.

Social Events Of The Week

Ischia Global Film & Music Fest 2009, Italy

Elsa Pataky always seems to be in couture weather it’s Elie Saab or Armani Privé.

On this occasion she wore an open back Armani Privé Spring 2009 dress with the beautiful web-like embroidered detail.

2009 Giffoni Film Festival, Italy

Eva Mendes was the epitome of summer chic wearing a Tibi Fall 2009 belted floral print maxi dress with Samantha Willis jewels and Stuart Weitzman “Alex” crochet espadrilles.

Da Silvano Restaurant, New York

Rihanna was out to lunch in New York where she was spotted showing off her new mohawk.

She’s clipped the sides and back of her head, leaving the top untouched. She rocks it well, but it’s a look I’ll never copy.

Rihanna isn’t shy as she has been wearing very revealing clothing lately.

I think this is the 4th time I’ve seen her bra through the sheer tops she loves to wear.

This time she wore a sheer top over a striped bikini with a pair of skinny ankle zip jeans.

She completed her look with Maison Martin Margiela shoe boots and a Nina Ricci bag.

“Charlotte Russe Fall 2009 Launch Event”

Jessica Szohr is fast becoming a red carpet regular. This time she was wearing a two-tone Charlotte Russe playsuit which showed off her toned legs.

She completed her look with beautiful black strappy sandals, a large statement necklace and a maroon clutch.

Michelle Trachtenberg’s black dress is so so, but I love her Giuseppe Zanotti clutch with multi-coloured stars and her electric blue ankle boots.

I can’t really fault Rumer Willis’ look.

Yes it’s all black and verging on dull, but at least the fit is right and she doesn’t look awkward.

Her look is paired with Christian Louboutin Paquita sandals and a black D&G clutch.

Casio Exilim MOBILE NYC Launch, New York

For once Taylor Momsen isn’t dressed like a Guns n’ Roses groupie, but her eye make-up is too heavy for that cute white dress she is wearing

Stella McCartney Presents New Collection At The Corner Berlin, Germany

Cool and chic as always Stella McCartney presented her new collection in Berlin wearing a Resort 2010 black cropped jacket, a white half tucked in tee and ombre ankle jeans from her own collection.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Anna Paquin channeled her inner geisha girl wearing this black figure-hugging dress Alexander McQueen dress with Jimmy Choo heels and a chic updo.

It’s On With Alexa Chung, New York

What’s with everyone wearing leather this summer?

We first had Chloe Sevigny wearing a leather jumpsuit this week, and now we have Ashley Greene wearing leather shorts.

The “Twilight” actress wore them with her cute floral Escada blouse to the MTV Studios this week.

Her sassy look was complete with sexy strappy sandals and a Gucci Hysteria bag.

On Set With The Cast Of Gossip Girl

The cast of Gossip Girl took over the Manhattan streets last week to film series 3 of our favourite show.

Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf wore a beautiful Burberry Prorsum belted brocade dress, whilst carrying a L.A.M.B. Women’s Darjeeling Leather Orissa Clutch, whilst filming a scene with Ed Westwick aka Chuck Bass.

Jessica Szohr as Vanessa Abrams’ wardrobe seems to have stepped up a notch from last season.

She wore an ethnic inspired look consisting of a black Nanette Lepore Discover Me jeweled top with some colourful shorts, and MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Tucson’ sandals.

With her hair half up an half down, Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen wore a bohemian Rag & Bone Justine maxi dress with sparkling Sigerson Morrison gladiator flats.

Taylor Momsen as ‘not so little anymore’ Jenny Humphrey walked to set wearing a stripy top, shorts with braces and Givenchy cut-out booties.

Between takes Leighton wore a gorgeous peach water stain Seneca Rising tee with jeans.

In another take Blake was spotted wearing a colourful Dries Van Noten Fall 2008 blazer, a slate grey Twelfth St. By Cynthia Vincent playsuit and grey Marc by Marc Jacobs peep-toe ankle boots.

It must be so much fun to dress these girls. I wonder if they get to keep the clothes afterwards.

23.06.09 Premiere

“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” LA Premiere

After her Donna Karan gown, I thought that Megan Fox couldn’t out do herself, then she arrived on the red carpet last night looking better then ever.

Her white jersey Kaufman Franco gown is incredibly sophisticated and sexy, something Megan has struggled to find in equal balance since her Donna Karan gown.

For me this is her best look yet.

For once I don’t feel like she is trying to hard. She’s not even over pouting. If you have seen the movie you know what I’m talking about.

Definitely a Best Dressed Of The Week candidate.

Isabel Lucas opted for a cute chiffon lemon cocktail vintage Chanel Haute Couture dress covered in silver embellishments.

Her silver accessories complemented her dress including Lanvin pointy pumps and a Fendi clutch, and her 3 tone hair was styled with loose waves.

Kristin Cavallari was my second favourite at this event wearing a fuschia pink Zac Posen asymmetrical dress which I had on my favourites last week.

What I love about this dress, with its one capped sleeve and one strapped sleeve, is the structure along with the vivid colour.

I’m glad she pulled her hair back so we could see the asymmetrical neckline.

Her look was paired with nude Dolce Vita Cajun gladiator sandals and a black clutch.

Taylor Momsen seems to have grown out of her Debbie Harry phase, as she not wearing the extreme heavy make-up and leathers.

Instead she opted for a slightly softer look wearing an ivory bustier Dolce & Gabbana dress with black lace-up sandals, finishing her look with smoky eyes and a Crucifix necklace.

She’s young and still experimenting so I’m sure we will be introduced to many more looks from Taylor.

We’re more used to seeing Aubrey O’Day half naked or spilling out of her clothes so this is a great look for her.

She also picked a bright summery colour wearing a cobalt blue Temperley London Eclipse Glade dress, with silver Louboutin sandals with complemented the gem-embellished detail on her shoulder.

For once she’s impressed me but I don’t expect this kind of look from her again.

Ciara on the other hand didn’t impress me.

What a lazy boring attempt.

Tie-dye jeans are becoming a bit stale and the visible bra is my number 2 pet-peeve after tights.

My number 3 pet-peeve is two tone or more hair. Ciara was just not out to impress last night.

Just as I suspected Kim Kardashian had just pinned up her luscious locks for the MuchMusic Awards and hadn’t cut it thankfully.

The reality star arrived on the red carpet wearing a sleeveless tuxedo dress which had a deep plunge.

Stella McCartney heels completed the look and her make-up was much better.
