Best Performance by a Stylist in a Supporting Role: The Pretty Reckless

You'd never know it from her Goth-girl eyeliner, oh-so-skimpy dress, and black thigh-high stockings, but Taylor Momsen is just 16. The singer-actress (Jenny Humphrey on "Gossip Girl," but you knew that, right?) turned more heads than she did dazzle ears in the 30-minute set, but her quartet's workmanlike grrl-rock, indebted to trailblazers like Joan Jett, fit right in among the 88 bands that played Warped's opener. "My Medicine" works as a morning-after-a-bender anthem, and the Pretty Reckless' squeezed every bit of angst out of its new single "Make Me Wanna Die," which featured Momsen at her vamping, and belting, best.
