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 LancĂ´me as her go-to brands. Check out her whole interview with Teen Vogue including an inside look at her work-out regime at TeenVogue.com.

What an extraordinary young lady! Simply amazing and so gorgeous! Keep up the great work you do on GG.

This girl can’t make up her mind about her style. She simply takes what her stylists put her in on GG and wears it in real life. No true style in my book.
