Goth Princess

John Galliano has a new video campaign called "Parlez-moi d'Amour chez Marionnaud" and who is the star?  Taylor Momsen, the long ratty blonde hair and raccoon eyes sporting goth princess from the TV series "Gossip Girl." Although I am not a big fan of her style choices, I do have to give her props for landing the campaign, not only as the model, but also as the singer and songwriter. 

Galliano's new fragrance, Parlez-moi d'Amour, is the subject of the ad campaign.  He said he wanted the name to be something that could be easily understood in English-speaking countries. He was inspired by Momsen's iconic youth and by her lyrics.  The narrative is about a girl who had been touring around Europe with her band and had fallen in love with one of the band members.  When they parted, she was stranded in an airport without any means of communication.  The only way that she could speak to her lover was to write it out long hand.
