Not too long ago was it announced that Ms. Go-Against-the-Grain Madonna and her 13-year-old daughter, Lourdes, would be launching their Junior’s clothing line, Material Girl, across Macy’s stores nationwide this upcoming August 3rd. It’s not surprising that the newly established face for the collection will be none other than Ms. Go-Against-the-Grain Jr. Taylor Momsen.
The 16-year-old Taylor Momsen, who’s widely known for role as Jenny Humphrey on the television show Gossip Girl and probably less widely known as the front woman for band The Pretty Reckless, is a very interesting choice for the job if you ask us. For one, her established style nowadays is very similar to the direction of the collection. She’s known for her oversized flannels, thigh-high stockings, sheer tops, and raccoon eyes, so the line is very much reflective of her edgy grunge style. It’s just a little more toned down, and this makes sense considering it’s geared towards 13-25 year olds across the country. Even more so, her new appointment to this line is interesting because of the controversy that may or may not come about from it. She’s not the best role model for the audience this line is aimed towards. She’s a 16-year-old celebrity who is often photographed smoking cigarettes. She’s known for her less than demure language. And time and again, she herself has established that she wants nothing to do with being seen as a role model for younger girls. If you ask us, she’s not doing a very good job. If you don’t want to be a role model, why choose to be the new face of a clothing line geared towards the very same crowd you’re not trying to influence ? Ms. Taylor Momsen, we do believe you’re eating your own words now.
Nonetheless, this line looks promising. If anything, it will be giving Macy’s stores a little bit of zest, since lately it’s been looking a little bland. Here are just a few looks from the up and coming collection.
