With her white-blonde hair, piercingly pale eyes and rock and roll attitude you'd be forgiven for thinking Taylor Momsen was older than 16. But the Gossip Girl star, designer and lead singer of band Pretty Reckless now has another talent to add to her curriculum vitae - modelling - as she is the new face of British high street giant New Look.
Following in the footsteps of Kimberley Walsh, Agyness Deyn and Alexa Chung, the campaign uses Momsen's signature grunge-luxe style, with studded nudes, ripped leggings and a short breton striped number making an appearance. Rumour has it Taylor took quite a few clothes home from the shoot, so be sure to nip into New Look soon to emulate Little J's grimey take on the Gossip Girl style.
New Look, renowned for its celebrity collaborations, which have included Kelly Brook, Lily Allen, Fearne Cotton, Alexa Chung and Giles Deacon, has revealed that Kimberley Walsh, from Girls Aloud, will front its A/W campaign this year.
“We always feature women who our customers tell us they like and relate to', a New Look spokesman said. “Lily Allen was one of the girls. Agy is the approachable supermodel and the way Alexa Chung styles herself goes down really well with our customers. And Kimberley Walsh is the girl our customer most wants to be.”
The announcement comes on the same day that Cheryl Cole was revealed to be the new face of L’Oréal, but it’s nice to see one of the other girls do well outside of the group as they all take time out from band duties.
