Taylor Momsen, Hollywood's resident bad girl cleaned up nice for New York Fashion Week.

Taylor Momsen was once the clean cut 14-year-old playing Jenny Humphrey on "Gossip Girl," but in late 2008 she starts debuting a more edgier look. By 2009, she was the lead singer of The Pretty Reckless, wore dark clothing and makeup and created a stir by wearing fashions that one would usually only wear on a stripper pole or in a dominatrix chamber. However, on February 14 she attended the Marchesa fashion show looking oh so fabulous in a black lace dress and nude pumps. She hasn't always been so dark and edgy with her look. There were quite a few times, albeit a couple of years ago, when she stepped out looking much more cleaned up and chic.

Spring Gala

The blonde stepped out in a stunning black and white Marchesa gown in May of 2008 for the American Ballet Theatre's spring gala at the Metropolitan Opera House. She wore her hair straight and parted at the side and kept the accessories simple.

Metropolitan Opera Party

On September 23, 2008, the fresh-faced beauty walked the red carpet in a gorgeous red strapless Marchesa gown that had tiered ruffles on the bottom and a red floral embellishment along the bust. Her hair was in an updo and she wore red lipstick.

"Two Lovers" screening

The then 15-year-old attended the screening for "Two Lovers" on February 11, 2009 while wearing a black sleeveless mini dress, black tights and a pair of fantastic hot pink heels. It was completely age appropriate but she still kept that rock star chic look .

amfAR Gala

On February 12, 2009, the actress attended the amfAR Gala at Cipriani's in New York wearing a sea green empire waist dress with crystal embellishments on the hem. Her hair in a short, slightly shaggy style. She added a touch of edginess by wearing dark nail polish and occasionally wearing a black leather coat.

Which do you prefer - Taylor's look then or her look now?
