She may be overshadowed by her older brother and by snobby girls on TV, but Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen was certainly the center of attention when she unexpectedly showed up at her school's most recent homecoming dance.
The Hollywood Gossip Note: Taylor Momsen is 14 years old. That is four years younger than Hayden Panettiere, and six and seven years younger, respectively, than her co-stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester. Just saying.
Clad a sexy black lace tunic â€" "way too short for a dress," the Washington Post quoted a witness as saying â€" Taylor Momsen arrived with her former middle school classmates. Middle school, people. Middle school.
The actress â€" who plays NYC prep school kid Jenny Humphrey on Gossip Girl â€" spent most of the night "huddled" with them in the gym of Winston Churchill High in her hometown of Potomac, Maryland, according to the Post.
"Strangers had a hard time striking up a conversation with the gorgeous blond starlet," the Post reports. We can't imagine why that would be the case.
On her Facebook page, Taylor Momsen lists herself as a member of Churchill High School's Class of 2011, though she currently isn't attending classes.
Although, Taylor may spending a lot more time with her hometown chums: The Hollywood writers' strike has shut down production of her show and others.
You can at least catch Taylor Momsen tonight, however, along with the rest of her gorgeous and entertaining Gossip Girl co-stars at 9 on The CW.
