Taylor Momsen puts her style down to laziness

Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen, 16, performs her first live gig in the UK with her band The Pretty Reckless at London's Notting Hill Arts ClubTaylor Momsen insists she puts no effort into her style.

The 16-year-old ‘Gossip Girl’ star has become a fashion icon thanks to her laid-back look, but Taylor claims the only deciding factor in the outfits she wears is whether the clothes are clean or not.

Taylor – who signed to IMG Models when she was 14 – said: “I really just put on what’s clean. The easiest thing to find in the morning because I’m usually running late.

“It’s just turned into style – I just don’t bother, I’m just too lazy.”

Although she is a lazy dresser, Taylor does have an interest on fashion just like her ‘Gossip Girl’ character.

The actress – who portrays chic schoolgirl Jenny Humphrey in the US teen drama series – admits she doesn’t have much in common with her TV alter-ego apart from their shared interest in keeping up with the latest trends and styles.

She recently said: “Am I anything like Jenny? I actually think I’m a lot different to Jenny, in most ways I guess. Obviously we have similarities, we’re both fashion orientated, we both very much enjoy fashion, but as far as personality traits and the way we view the world I guess is very different.

“I’m not Jenny Humphrey everyone, I’ll make that announcement once and for all. It’s just a character I play on television.”
