Last night, Taylor and the boys gave an unforgettable surprise street concert, pulling up in a truck with a stage inside, in front of hundreds of fans (and Momsen-alikes). Wearing a pale pink corset "dress" (essentially, just a corset), her trademark stockings with garter belt and self-proclaimed "stripper shoes", Taylor performed three songs - Factory Girl, Make Me Want to Die and Since You're Gone. The street gig actually started a little early; which, let's face it, is not very rock n'roll - except that Taylor herself tweeted the incorrect start time; a perversely rebellious thing to do.
The designer said that Momsen was a great inspiration and that he thought up a narrative “where she’s been traveling around the world gigging everywhere, going from one gig to another, and she finds herself in Berlin, stranded.” Galliano imagined that the actress-turned-rocker had no Internet access and had lost contact with everyone. “She finds herself having to pour her heart out longhand on paper to this guy that she has just fallen in love with,” he said.
Full details of our encounter with Taylor and with John Galliano, will be coming up in Grazia before you know it, but enjoy watching Taylor rocking out on the video below...
