taylor momsen galliano grazia

So yesterday we posted a teaser image, asking you to guess who we'd met yesterday. And it took approximately twenty seconds for the first commenter (bravo, littlemunchkin) to guess the right answer: Taylor Momsen. Seems that Hamburglar-thick eye make-up ain't the greatest disguise after all...

We met The Momsen in Paris yesterday for the release of John Galliano's brand-new fragrance, Parlez-Moi D'Amour. Taylor is the muse of the fragrance, and stars in the raunchy Ellen von Unwerth-shot ad campaign and video, (which her rock band, The Pretty Reckless, also provided the soundtrack for).

She brought her band to Paris too - for the launch party, that was held at Laperouse restaurant (a former brothel) in the 6th arrondissement.

Last night, Taylor and the boys gave an unforgettable surprise street concert, pulling up in a truck with a stage inside, in front of hundreds of fans (and Momsen-alikes). Wearing a pale pink corset "dress" (essentially, just a corset), her trademark stockings with garter belt and self-proclaimed "stripper shoes", Taylor performed three songs - Factory Girl, Make Me Want to Die and Since You're Gone. The street gig actually started a little early; which, let's face it, is not very rock n'roll - except that Taylor herself tweeted the incorrect start time; a perversely rebellious thing to do.

Full details of our encounter with Taylor and with John Galliano, will be coming up in Grazia before you know it, but enjoy watching Taylor rocking out on the video below...

Parlez-Moi D'Amour, a clean but fruity mix of blueberries and heavy musk, launches at Harrods at the end of October.
