In addition to playing one of TV’s most rebellious teenagers on Gossip Girl, Taylor Momsen is also the singer and songwriter for the band Pretty Reckless. With Gossip Girl wrapping up its second season of filming, the 15-year old starlet is gearing up to lead her band on tour — clad in her own creations! “I’m actually designing all of my costumes. It’s a rock band, so there’s not costume changes but there’s definitely a look,” Taylor told NYmag.com at Nylon‘s 10th anniversary party last night. A source tells PEOPLE.com that, although no deal has yet been inked, Taylor will collaborate with New York designer Jen Kao, who is already drawing up sketches. We can’t wait to see what Taylor and Jen come up with, but the edgy actress did reveal to NYmag.com, “I only really design for myself. It’s really fun.” Stay tuned for more information on Taylor’s tour costumes. Tell us: Are you excited to see what Taylor designs?

ABSOLUTELY! opposite to what most people have said i LOVE taylor’s new look, she’s really inspired me, she has that rock chic thing going on and she knows how to do it, i would love to see what she comes up with! ROCK ON TAYLOR!

Yeah, really-if it wasn’t for her nose-I would think it was Courtney Love. Same plat. blonde hair/similar cut, same shade of lipstick, complexion, and big blue eyes.

I prefer it on Courtney Love.

This really isn’t a good look for taylor. The whole rock star look and the pink lips just don’t mesh well. She should keep her make up artist from GG.

madison on

She looks goth and not in a good way.

Like seriously, I don’t like this rock chick look on her at all! It doesn’t suit her. But I would love to hear her music!

i liked her better as cute instead of rock-chick.yeah i get that she’s a teenager and into rock but i think this pic makes her look tired and washed out.
