Red Carpet Re-Do: Taylor Momsen, We're Calling Your Mom

March 26, 2010 by Marisa Siegel

If you were 16 year-old Taylor Momsen’s mom would you let your daughter leave the house like this?  Yeah, we wouldn’t either.  Let’s play red carpet re-do to the Gossip Girl who looks more like a lady of the night then a high school student here.  Taylor, you’re a teenage girl in a hit TV series, surely that you can at least afford some pants and a hairbrush.  But let’s completely revamp her look and make it look much more appropriate for any girl no matter what their age with Red Carpet Re-Do:

What Taylor Did Wrong:

  • Unless you are Lady Gaga, you must wear pants, skirt, short, something, anything; you cannot just wear a shirt in public (see our rant on the pants vs. no pants debate)
  • No one wants to see your garters unless you’re auditioning for Pretty Woman 2
  • As though Taylor wasn’t naked enough to begin with, she opted for a sheer shirt with a black bra underneath

What She Should Have Done:

A sheer blouse can be sexy and feminine if paired  with the right bottoms.

Pair a loose sheer blouse with a cami underneath and a tight bandage skirt for an evening friendly look.  Tuck it into the skirt for a less sloppy ensemble than Taylor’s failed attempt.  Try this button down by Acne ($299) with this sung pink mini by Pleasure Doing Business ($90), at steal for under $100.

Thigh high tights with lace tights are ultra sophisticated and feminine, but please, make sure you they are hidden under hem of your skirt.  Wolford ($40) always makes the most comfortable and run-proof stockings.  We do envy Taylor’s ankle strap leather booties, and we love the price of this nearly identical pari by  Nine West ($67.43-$78.66).

Finish off the look with a patent leather doctor bag like Taylor’s.  This Hype Corey bag ($238.90-$293.3) has enough space to carry to work, but the patent leather finish makes it also function for nighttime.
