Taylor Momen is the new panda-face of Galliano perfume, why is she legit?


Can you believe this sh-t? Real designers, real fashion houses, real style-makers are lining up to work with everybody’s favorite panda-faced pantless brat, Taylor Momsen. She’s 16 years old, she has a gutter mouth and a Megan Fox-esque habit of saying dumb, offensive, asinine bullsh-t, and she refuses to wear pants! Plus, the blackened eyes, the jailbait short skirts and garter belts, the stubborn need to copy moves from Cherie Currie and Courtney Love, all while never for once admitting it or paying appropriate homage. All of it. And it’s now legit, fashion-wise. Madonna and John Galliano have given her the nod of approval.

Is Gossip Girl Taylor Momsen the style world’s new darling?

After being unveiled as the face of Madonna’s new Material Girl clothing collection just last week, it’s now emerged that the 16-year-old starlet will front the campaign for John Galliano’s new fragrance, set to launch this autumn.

This will be Momsen’s biggest modeling gig to date, after making her debut in the New Look ads last year.

And fashion is clearly important to the wannabe rocker – she told MTV yesterday that she had fired her stylist so as to take more control over her look: ‘I think firing my stylist has allowed me to be more free. I was getting moulded into this thing that wasn’t who I am.’

Oh, there’s even more from Taylor’s MTV interview too – when asked to describe her style, this is what she said:

“That’s the hardest question to answer, to describe my style, because I don’t think that much about it, I kind of just dress in what makes me feel comfortable. I like a lot of leather, I like a lot dresses, I’ve been known to be provactive, but it’s not for any other purpose! I dress for myself, I do myself up kind of like a doll. I have a doll collection and I look at their outfits and kind of imitate them. I love Chanel… I don’t go shopping that much, I still wear pieces from when I was in f**king middle school.”

What kind of ridiculous whore dolls does this kid have? Also: “when I was in f-cking middle school“? So, like, two years ago? She still has clothes from two years ago! ZOMG HARDCORE.

    Wow, nothing says “I’m hardcore” like selling perfume.

  2. denise says:

    Designers want to use Taylor as their model because they want to corrupt our youth. Youngsters are impressionable. This girl is too much , too soon.

  3. pookie says:

    She knows that’s a nightgown right? Right? God this girl is so many kinds of wrong. And for the love of god, where are her PARENTS?!?

  4. meme says:

    oh yes, i want to smell like this brat.

  5. ViktoryGin says:

    Because bottle blondes are much too easy to sell. Like crack for the masses.

  6. Sarah says:

    She reminds me a Avril whateverherlastnamewas but more slutty. They both irritate the hell out of me.

  7. jen says:


  8. hanh says:

    Someone please make her go away. She’s a nobody famous for dressing like a trashy teenager. Whoopie. Her style stinks even for the genre she’s trying to fit into. Oy, bring back a stylist.

  9. Caprice says:

    I thought Love Rocks was a Victoria Secret perfume?

  10. Oi says:

    She has the Courtney Love cracked out whore stance down beautifully.

    Madonna and C Love need to drop off the face of the planet.

  11. Andrea says:


    You made my day!!!

  12. LILO - donotpassgo-donotcollect200$ says:

    I hate how people reward douchebaggery.

  13. DetRiotgirl says:

    That last picture is so awkward. The combat boots, the night gown (lol@pookie) and that face… Tragic. She’ll look back at that in ten years and be so embarassed. I know, because I looked a lot like her ten years ago.

    I have so many pictures of myself from that age in big, dumb combat boots, barely there clothing, and bleached hair. I never did the panda eyes though, thank god. Every time I look through photos from that phase all I can think is “dang, why did my mom let me out of the house like this?”.

    I mean, I’m grateful that my parents have always supported my need to grow up on my own. But, at the same time, I think I will probably use a shorter leash on my own children if I ever have any. If you under the age of 18 in my house, you will wear pants (or some kind of bottoms… I’m not discriminating against appropriately long skirts and dresses here!). Period, end of story.

  14. guesty says:

    it has to be her signature eye shadow…it has to be.

  15. ligeia says:

    i think she has more of a raccoon look personally.

  16. Jover says:

    Agree with Kaiser and posters – real designers/fashion houses are completely slumming when they use no-talents like Raccoon McPantless as a spokesmodel when so many real models would kill for a gig like Galliano perfume. No teenagers or twentysomething – or anyone – savvy about music would listen to this walking ad for Sherwin Williams paint. RIght now those around her are on the gravy train blowing smoke – literally – up her butt, but this will end when she attempts to tour on her own music and ticket sales are slighter than her outfits. She doesn’t have enough talent to open for AMerican Idol retreads 37 music in the county park tour. Her fall is going to be so delicious and deserving.

  17. Vajayjay says:

    YEAH! Cus only hardcore rockers wear super-dark eye makeup!!! What a poser ass loser.. Even if I was 16 again (and I was a major rock/grunge/punk lover), I would even know that this piece of doodoo is majorly lame..

  18. Kelly says:

    that video of her is giving me flashbacks to my nightmares of the clown from it, pennywise, right?

  19. LolaBella says:

    Psst Kaiser, her name is Taylor MomSen not Momen as you you have it in the post title.

    Well at least it’s just the perfume she is the face of and not the fashion part of the Galliano brand, whew!

    Meh, she’s still a little poseur, but these gigs are doing a lot to make her seem legitimate and widen her fanbase.

    I think it’s her ‘rebel attitude’ that’s appealing to Madonna and Galliano.

  20. palomino says:

    I don’t care for the girl but I’m not gonna hate on her. She’s doin her thing. Good for her.

  21. Spring says:

    Boring, panda. BORING.

  22. Lucy says:

    I would love to see her in a grindcore pit. Or, any actual metal or punk show. Her Chanel would get pissed and/or puked on.

  23. clare says:

    @#6,Sara- me, too.

  24. excuse me says:

    Is this what a girl has to do to get noticed? C’mon, scrub your face and dress like a 16 year old already.

  25. mollination says:

    Oh god, it speaks. I’ve never heard that annoying tryhard talk before.

    I think somebody else already said this, but she even has courtney’s moves down pat. That photo where she’s holding the microphone cord all broken-down-drunk-doll…..god try harder, panda.

  26. yae says:

    Why is she legit?

    Because some elite, rich Hollywood Execs wish to make it very clear to America that American children are THEIR sex toys, to exploit however they wish.

    (this is not something they would ever do in their own homelands……just ours)

  27. serena says:

    why does she have to put “fucking” everywhere? It’s really starting to piss me off.

  28. jones says:

    I’m a real rebel bitch and if you buy ‘Love Rocks,’ you’ll smell like a pissed-off vagina and a rock star.

  29. Obvious says:

    She’s a raccoon. at least panda’s are cute and cuddly looking-they’re also dying out. Raccoon makes more sense for because she is spreading her bandit eye mask and pantslessness to everyone out there.

    can we get someone decent to model for these people? I believe Abigail Breslin and Dakota Fanning are both the right age, and damned good role models!

  30. di butler says:

    Here’s a piece of Pantless McWhoreface trivia-she graduated HS at 14, obviously home schooled. Her uncle is one of her band mates (bass?) and her mother is a major stage mom type. So don’t assume they aren’t ok with her career, I have read that they consider her an adult and let her make her own decisions.

  31. Marianne says:

    Oh the Pantless wonder is sooo hardcore. She wears army boots with slips….oooh Im shaking. Ooooh she has a doll collection…I’m terrified.

    *Rolls eyes*….give me a break Taylor. You’re nothing but a wannabe.

  32. Kelly says:

    Galliano’s been off his game for a few years now, if he even had anything to do with this disaster/decision. People are giving her work because she rates highly in recognition questions as put to 8-16 year old focus group participants. That’s how it’s done, ya’ll, seriously. There is no creativity involved. Obviously!

    One day she’ll look back on all this shiz and feel the burn. The internet is indelible. It will come back to haunt her.

  33. Sandy says:

    I’m still not sure who this ridiculous child is.

  34. Jazz says:

    What a tryhard brat! She still looks like Tiffany from the Chucky movies.

  35. Buddha DeCat says:

    It is a shame — she is a pretty girl (when her face is scrubbed) but I don’t see a good end for her. Too much, too fast. And as another poster wrote: where the heck are her parents?!?!?!

  36. voodoobetty says:

    Ive tried to hate her but she really reminds me of myself at that age. I was already out on my own at her age and dressed pretty much the same way. Her style isnt exactly NEW but I like it. I hate Avril Lavigne a hell of a lot more, sje tries to pretend she’s edgy and hardcore while she’ selling her crappy cutesy skull emblazoned clothing at Kohls department store. She’s a poseur. This girl is alright. I admire that she isnt trying to be a cookie cutter like all these other chicks from Gossip Girl and The Hills. I just hope she find a way to keep making a living because Im not convinced she has much of a music or acting career ahead of her.

  37. moi says:

    the way fashion houses like Galliano make their REAL money is through the ready to wear collections, bags, shoes and fragrances. you know, the stuff little people can buy. the haute couture lines are the true oeuvre of the fashion business. Taylor is peddling the lowest crap on the fashion chain: the fragrance. Mediocrity posing as quality art seems to suit her.

  38. Arja says:

    Oh god. Not the first and definitely not the last 16 year old to get this famous. So she has her own style, you should say good for her, nut shun her. I mean, dont get me wrong, she does kinda sound like an idiot, but so do 99% of celebrities.
