Taylor Momsen of Gossip Girl has signed with IMG models.
This makes her one of the youngest ladies on the company's roster, as Taylor is just 14. 14! That's four years younger than Hayden Panettiere!
More significantly, it's a year younger than IMG's Gemma Ward was (she's now 20) when she scored her first Prada campaign and rose to stardom.
There's no denying that Taylor Momsen has the model looks and model height, at 5-foot-10, but it's interesting to note IMG's scooping her up so quickly, since she's yet to score any big celebrity fashion campaigns or covers.
Taylor Momsen plays Jenny Humphrey on the hit show Gossip Girl.
Also notable is that IMG signed another notable star, Mischa Barton, when she was about 16 and turned her from a child actress into a pot-smoking, drunk-driving, Cisco-Adler-shagging train wreck. But famous, for sure!
We're guessing that's the strategy here with Taylor. Nice!
