Taylor Momsen is a far cry from the adorable little girl who melted our hearts as she fixed the Grinch in the 2000 remake 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas.' Her time on 'Gossip Girl' could potentially be over as she was benched from the show back in November, and she has since been on tour with her band, The Pretty Reckless.

The platform buckle boots she is strutting down the street in must have been keeping her warm as the 17-year-old star apparently thinks pants are optional in New York City during winter.

She is seen here out grabbing coffee Wednesday, hours before she and her band did a show at Santos Party House in NYC, where she once again pushed the limits on what is considered an appropriate public appearance outfit.

Take a look at some shots of Taylor's performance after the jump.
