Taylor Momsen, Please WEAR REAL CLOTHES!

Dear Taylor,

You're 17, the age of rebellion and experimentation. We get it. We understand that you're trying to distance yourself from your squeaky clean Cindy Lou Who days, and proudly refer to your personal style as "high class hooker". We wore a few naughty things in our teenaged years, too, but honey, you take the cake. Your Cherie Currie-wannabe style is getting tired, and we would like to know how many black kohl eye pencils you go through in a weeks' time. Please, put away the heavy makeup, the lingerie, the stockings, and the stripper shoes, and put on some jeans & a tee shirt like a normal girl. We promise, we'll still like you and watch you on Gossip Girl. And you'll be happier in a few years time to look back at photos of yourself at 17 wearing more than a postage stamps' worth of lace and satin.


PS - Memo to Taylor's parents: Why are you letting your child out of the house dressed like that, anyways?

PPS - Miley Cyrus: Please re-read this post with your name inserted everywhere Taylor's is.

Finally someone says somethng about Taylor and Miley! No one wants to dress like you, however every tween wants to be you! Grow-up and put some big girl pants on PLEASE!

Can someone please tell her Momma that she looks like a hooker? I know this girl is just a kid, but c'mon! Didn't she just get a bunch of free clothes from Madonna?

Wow. While I may not LIKE her style, I don't see anything particularly wrong with it. She's 17. She's been vocal about NOT wanting to be a role model for kids.

Parents should be working hard to be role models for their kids if they're really that worried about it. Side note: Just because a kid looks up to her, doesn't mean she's looking up to her fashion sense.

Also, I'm SUPER offended by Outblush telling her to wear jeans and a t-shirt like a normal girl. Sort of defeats the purpose of the site, ladies. Better just stick to the basics then, no shackle bracelets or leather skirts! *eye roll*

I would change "high class hooker" to just "hooker".

@J -

Well, even if she's been particularly vocal about NOT wanting to be a role model, she is, whether she wants to or not. We don't have an issue with her dressing to show off her admittedly gorgeous figure, but it's a question of age appropriateness and the message she's giving to kids. What's okay for a 22 year old is much dicier on a 17 year old. And lingerie as outerwear isn't appropriate for ANYone, in our opinion!

I believe you misunderstood my main point. It's not her, or what she's wearing. (Not a fan, hardly know who she is other than random remarks I've read about her elsewhere, I just don't care what she's wearing as long as she's wearing something. I've seen worse outside my local Wal-Mart, and that's actually considered clothing.. come on.) It's saying, to anyone, that they need to be "normal" and wear a jeans and tee.

::Sigh:: I remember when I rebelled I dressed like Daria... those were the days... Anyway, yeah, Taylor and Miley need to dress a little less hooker-ish. I get it, you're 16-17, you think you know everything, you've got the money and the stylists, but please for heaven's sake wear some real clothes.

Dear Outblush, I love your blog and wearing t-shirts and jeans, and skirts, and shorts, and dresses, and flats, heels, boots.... BECAUSE I'M NORMAL! Not a hooker! :)

This site is not for 17 year old girls. It is for adult women. And they *were* talking to a 17 year old girl.

There isn't anything wrong with trying to be a role model back and saying, "Hey Taylor, jeans and a t-shirt are appropriate for your age. Not what you are wearing." It's truth; she is a teenager!

Hi J!

Sorry for our seeming obtuseness; we actually get what you're saying. But rather than go into it and just stir it up more, we'd rather just say that nothing we respond with is going to make all of our opinions align.

Second, and most importantly, we agree with you regarding the old question, "What's normal, anyway?", and all that. All of us here are somewhat of characters, some more eccentric (again, what's that?) than others. And we don't all wear tees and jeans all the time.

Suffice to say, although Taylor Momsen may be normal, she's definitely not your everyday girl next door...
