She may be only 20 years old, but Taylor Momsen, the ridiculously hot front woman of the Pretty Reckless, has already accomplished more than most of us lazy bums could imagine. She starred as Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, enjoyed a four-season stint on Gossip Girl, toured the world with Marilyn Manson, and was selected as the face of Madonna’s fashion line.
