Dressing Your Age

Usually I tend to think that the idea of dressing one's age is outdated, but sometimes I can't help it. That's how I felt when I looked at photos of Taylor Momsen at the Whitney. Don't get me wrong, I love Gossip Girl and I also love the first single, Blender, from her band, The Pretty Reckless, but she is sixteen! Maybe I'm old fashioned, but the slit on that dress is mighty high and caused a few dangerously revealing shots. I'm 21 and I'm pretty sure my dad would want to have a serious talk with me if I wore that. What do you guys think? Do you agree or am I being old-fashioned? (Photos from dailymail.co.uk)

I do see what you mean...but I also kinda love her trashy/rockstar look. In a few years she'll probably look back at it like "dressing up/costume-y." :)

I'm 22 and my Dad would throw a fit if I wore that!

Personally, I find her look quite a bit...risque for her age. She definitely looks like someone in her mid to late twenties - definitely not 16. She is, however, a "rock star," and they tend to grow up quicker than the rest of the world... :/

hi honey, hope your well. yummy post. I do see what you mean but i guess it is hard in hollywood and with this industry for young starlets to stick to just the age appropriate as the whole industry is unfortunately by the sexy. so everyone even the young actresses grow up so fast.
hope you have a good day

Yeah, that's some heavy duty eyeliner too..it could really hurt your eyes later on. A little eyeliner goes a long way. And yeah, I don't think I'd be seen in public in some of those outfits. When it comes to concerts, I want to be comfort as possible, not in bleeding eyeliner. I need my skinny jeans I can move in, and sneakers I can jump to a grove too.

I agree, her dress and her make up date her.

Have you seen Trace Cyrus' new tattoos? He's gone a little overboard. Inkings great..but I guess that's a rocker for you.

I don't think I'd be caught in that dress ..especially, where I live.

E said...

Yeah, I think she's a bit "too much." And I love this dress, but on someone older.

Anna said...

That's one high slit! I'm 26 and I don't think I'd wear that! I'd like another three inches of coverage, please.
