!! Tropes:
* CoolShades: She's almost always seen wearing a pair of sunglasses.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeShadow: Leading to Celebitchy to give her the nickname her "Raccoon [=McPantsless=]".
* FormerChildStar: Though she's still managed to maintain a successful career.
* {{Goth}}
** PerkyGoth
* KnifeNut: [[http://www.mtv.co.uk/news/taylor-momsen/221822-taylor-momsen-has-knife-collection Apparently]].
* MessyHair
* RapunzelHair
* ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic: She once dressed like [[http://www.dlisted.com/files/imagecache/photo-preview/files/galleries/spl252629_002.jpg this]] while on tour. It's a quite a black metal image for a band who plays pretty straightforward radio rock.
* ShesGotLegs
* StatuesqueStunner: She's 5'8".
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Some of her outfits, especially shoes, were even bought at [[http://www.refinery29.com/taylor-momsen-buys-her-clothes-and-shoes-at-stripper-shops stripper shops]], though she may have [[http://metro.co.uk/2014/02/09/taylor-momsen-explains-those-stripper-shoes-i-was-a-teenager-exploring-my-sexuality-4296921/ grown out of this style]].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: When she was a teenager, her style of dress and makeup made her look in her early to mid twenties. Also while Cindy-Lou Who was stated to be 8, she was only 6 during filming.
