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:
