Since catching the attention of fans as Gossip Girl‘s rebelious Jenny Humphrey, the 15-year-old actress has been thrust into the fashion spotlight. Just like her onscreen character, Taylor Momsen has adopted an edgy downtown look for her own. “[It’s] kind of eclectic. I dress for my mood, so it changes daily. There’s always an element of black in it,” Taylor tells Teen Vogue , who caught up with the teenager to talk fashion. Unlike most girls her age, Taylor has the opportunity to wear some of the hottest designers [DASH] the Ford model names Alexander Wang, Marchesa, Dior, YSL, Miu Miu and Dolce & Gabbana as her favorite lines. Along with the big names, Taylor is also discovering young New York designers like Gary Graham. “He’s got a tiny little boutique, where he mixes grungy with girly,” says Taylor about her lesser known favorite. From her own closet, Taylor says, “One favorite staple that I could never get rid of is my black leather jacket. It’s perfectly worn in. And keep in mind that I have a lot of leather jackets, but there’s just that one I always want to put on.” And, it looks like the heavy eye make-up that her onscreen character is known for is also part of her own look. Taylor doesn’t leave the house without mascara–citing Maybelline and Lancôme as her go-to brands.
