Unless scientists find a way to make babies piss 100-proof alcohol and cough up weed buds, I’m probably not going to become a parent anytime soon, so I’m not sure how I’d feel if my 16-year-old daughter went out on the streets wearing this. Okay, I’ll be real with you. I’d probably applaud her ass and then make her replace her shoes with exquisite lucite heels. Yes, I’m already on Child Protective Services’ “wish list.”
At a block party for Teen Vogue last night, 16-year-old Taylor Momsen (aka Little Jenny from Gossip Girl) performed with her band Pretty Reckless wearing this. Don’t call her Noah Cyrus just yet, because it’s not that bad. The garter belt is the only thing that makes her look like an extra from Hookers at the Point. Besides, didn’t we all dress like graveyard-shift prostitutes when we were 16? I know I was wearing a garter belt under my pleated Cross Colours jeans. Yeah, I think my jeans were more offensive than the garter belt.
