Gossip Girl Taylor Momsen +The Pretty Reckless styles

Taylor Momsen from Gossip Girl, after her band's show The Pretty Reckless, she is a good singer that Little J

So I met up fellow blogger and friend Eyeliah last night to see The Veronicas in concert. She bought the tickets awhile back, knowing it was a small club and they would be a inexpensive and fun band to see. Not to mention that the opening band was Little J's (Taylor Momsen, aka Jenny Humphrey of Gossip Girl) The Pretty Reckless.

Now, at times, I have a low opinion of Gossip Girl and also of actors who also think they are singers. For every Juliette Lewis, there is a Scarlett Johansson out there (Tom Waits...srsly?). But T Mom completely blew me away. I mean, I went in there expecting crap and she actually had a pretty rad band, a wicked smokey voice and cool stage presence. Let's not forget...THE GIRL IS ONLY 15 YEARS OLD! Holy crap, that puts things in perspective.

Anyway, let's go back a bit. This is us before the show...

gladiator cage heels by Helmut Lang with ASOS dress and tie necklace - my concert wear is black and grey for summer





ME: Dress: ASOS; Tie lithograph necklace: Paraphanelia; Cage heels: Helmut Lang - Eyeliah: Thrifted bright ensemble with her go-to concert boots

So here's Little J doing her thang on stage with The Pretty Reckless...









I'm not sure what Miss Momsen was wearing but her leather jacket was uber cool, as was her body-con-ish dress which looked like it could be by BCBG Max Azria*** and since she has been seen wearing a lot of his clothes, I wouldn't be surprised if that were true.

After TPR, The Veronica's came on. WOW. Can I just say total girl crush on them, especially the dark-haired twin (Lisa Origliasso). Is she a lesbian? Who cares, I'd do her lol.

The Veronicas live in concert, now touring with Taylor Momsen from Gossip Girl The Pretty Reckless





The girls had great energy, a fantabulous showboating bass player that resembled Borat, opened up with the uber-catchy "Untouched" and did one awesome cover of "Mother Mother." Frick, they can scream! I sadly didn't tape that part but I did tape them doing "Take Me on the Floor":



Anyway, after the show I ended up buying a Pretty Reckless tee...normally I am not a fan of concert tees but I thought this one was pretty simple and since the name is not known very well, it could just mean that I AM pretty reckless - which is true, you know especially with my credit card.



Then I got Taylor to sign it. She was actually really cool. I know she gets made fun of a lot on Go Fug Yourself, for reasons I understand. But in real life she looked awesome, she was really pretty and quite tall. I'm not sure why this doesn't translate so well in photos as she looks grumpy and glum but the girl herself is super friendly, chipper, gracious and smiley.

She said she really liked my necklace and when I told her she reminded me of a female Robert Plant, the compliment just bowled her over. Anyway, she was just such a sweetie and I got out of there before I was mobbed by a crowd of over-excited Gossip Girl fans.

All in all, a good night. Girl power all the way.

XOXO Gossip Girl...

***addendum: as Marietta pointed out, she was indeed wearing a D&G dress

Great post, mine is up now too. I love the title you used, so good for google searches. :-) Of course, I KNEW I saw that dress before, it was on LC! It is supposed to be hot all week, so I think a get together will very well be the beach.

I really like Taylor and try not to listen to negative talk about her. Really looking forward to the Pretty Reckless CD.
Thanks so much for posting all this.

The Clothes Horse said...

Oooh, this has got to be the best blogger meet-up ever! Cute outfits all around, and a Little J sighting? Awesome!

Kristin said...

15?? Are you kidding me? Oh to have talent. Wicked awesome shoes lady!

Karinaxoxo said...

I love those shoes - they look like the perfect heels to wear to a concert - not too "heely"

i'm just about to purchase my first dress (or should i say dresses) from Forever 21 (US site)! Sooo excited!

josie(bean) said...

i looove miss Tmom, she's too cute and i'd totally want to be her if i were 15. also that dress is D&G, sooo many celebs have worn the same one but i think this little number can put the rest to shame!

Alice said...

i didn't know TMom had a band! i am so jealous of so many things here: a) i totally want to see the veronicas in concert; b) i kind of adore GG so i am quite jealous you have a pic with her :-)

FJ said...

Wow. Sounds like a great time.

Danielle said...

You have a great style!
Thanks for the comment on my blog.

seo india said...

elena-lu said...

seems like y'all had such a great night! woohoo for blogger meetups!

tinklestar said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! You look lovely in that dress and so gorgeous in the previous post on the beach!

I admire Taylor Momsen for her bold style choices. With time, I think it's a style people will warm up to. She reminds me of MKO when everyone was bashing her for looking like a homeless person, and look how many people copy (i.e. take inspiration from) her style now! (me included =P)

thefatandskinnyonfashion said...

Wow! Looks like you had fun! Thanks for visiting my blog!!

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

Mimi said...

I've heard her sing she's surprisingly good! I like her Courtney Love vibe but still unsure about her style sometimes.

It's so sad about Billy Mays! R.i.p Infommercial King :(

Yeah I have a love/hate relationship with Megan Fox too I like her but then she says something annoying but I still want to like her!

xo

P. S. Thanks for finding my blog, I really like yours!

The Budget Babe said...

Ashleigh said...

gennie said...

that's so cool you got to meet her in person :) gossip girl used to be a crazy obsession of mine haha. so sad to admit...

thanks for the suggestion on trying the caesar cocktail - I have no idea where to order that though because I've never seen it on a menu here! :(

MizzJ said...

That's so cool! Hmm that is funny cuz in all her photos she looks like Courtney Love which is NOT a good thing.
