Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen has arguably been through more serious style changes than any other cast member (and I don’t think Blake Lively is ever chopping off her long hair!). When Momsen first came out as a teen starlet she was wholesome and girly, and her hair was long and full of volume.
But over the years she has grown more into her OWN style, which is rock n’ roll meets punk. Or, whatever you want to call it. You don’t have to define it at all. But it is different, that’s pretty certain.
I put together a little style slide show of Taylor Momsen’s different looks. She is always doing something new, which is exciting even if I don’t always love the look. Lately she’s been rocking some serious long blonde hair with lots of texture. The only downside to that look is that it can appear dirty, which is not what you want. Bedhead hair? Super sexy. Beachy hair? Love it. Dirty hair? Just makes me wanna know the last time you showered.
Somewhat ironically, Taylor Momsen recently helped launch the Clinique & Teen Vogue Fresh Faces Tour in NYC this year. Luckily she mostly tamed her wild hair for those photo opps!
Above is a collage of Taylor Momsen in 2007. I know, you’re stunned by my use of slightly uneven proportions! Or, if you couldn’t tell that the lower pictures aren’t quite as large as the top ones, forget I said anything. Your eyes are fine! I have used visual trickery on you! (No really, I did!)

Taylor Momsen Getting Coffee in NYC (2/12/09) This is when Taylor Momsen hair was a very questionable topic! Some rushed to get the Taylor Momsen haircut, but not I! Hopefully not you. I just don’t think it’s a very attractive look… And this brings us to…
Here’s Taylor Momsen at the Step Father premiere yesterday (09.) She’s rockin’ some seriously heavy eyeliner, but it works with her flawless complexion and minimal other makeup. (Had she worn dark lipstick we’d be having a different talk right now.) She may be pushing her ‘I’m gothic-ish’ look a little hard, but to me she actually looks like Amalthea in The Last Unicorn. Oh Little J, how far you’ve come!
What is your favorite Taylor Momsen style?
