Do you recognize this person? We almost didn’t! That’s former Gossip Girl Taylor Momsen attending last night’s Marchesa show, and when we first saw the image–accompanied by a reference to someone named “Taylor”–we thought, “Well, that would be Taylor Swift‘s notion of edgy.”
But no! It’s Momsen! Who usually looks like this! And this! She paid tribute to her angsty teen inclinations and kept the raccoon eyes, but otherwise she looks downright ladylike. What could the explanation for this dramatic turnaround be? Our guess is that her handlers have finally had enough with all the horrible press she gets (and all that unfettered nonsense she vomits up at journalists) and have decided to aggressively re-brand. We’ll see how long this lasts!
