Taylor explains 'harlot chic'

Taylor Momsen - who first made her name in Gossip Girl, then kept that name in the headlines for the simple, yet effective trick of dressing like a lady of the night - has recently been interviewed for MTV. In an articulate and indepth analysis, Momsen, like any self-respecting inane celeb, asserts that by wearing suspenders and a basque to the grocers, she's 'dressing for herself'. You go girl...

Taylor told MTV,'I don't really think that much about it. I kind of just dress in whatever makes me feel comfortable. I like a lot of leather, I like a lot of dresses. I guess it's been known to be provocative. But it's not for any other purpose than I dress for myself, and 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.'

On firing her stylist, she clarified, 'My music reflects my style because my music reflects me and so does my music. I don't think being in a band has allowed me to be more free, I think firing my stylist has allowed me to be more free. I now dress myself, and told everyone who was telling me to look a certain way and fit a certain mold for the niche that I was being put in, and I said f— that.'

Highly illuminating, Momsen...
