Punk rock princess Taylor Momsen has earned gothic cred through sheer consistency. For years now, she’s limited her wardrobe to blacks and grays and stayed true to signature circles of eyeliner that would turn even the tamest of raccoons wild with envy.
All wannabe-vamps step aside, because Kristen Stewart epitomizes the Hollywood take on goth: elegant, ethereal and not too pulled-together.
Florence Welch doesn’t do California casual. The singer’s moody-baroque wardrobe is always as hauntingly beautiful as her voice.
