The Taylor Momsen Spin Magazine spread is definitely on the provocative side. The 17-year-old 'Gossip Girl' actress looks quite the grown up in this magazine feature.
Dressed in shredded fishnets and wearing raccoon eye-makeup, her entire look channels her gothic, rock and roll vibe. Momsen has definitely switched up her look from the girlie, sweetheart character on 'Gossip Girl,' bringing her own edgy style to the shoot.

This rebellion offsets new consumer patterns that follow these less conventional styles.
