Taylor Momsen stated, "I'm psyched to be the face of Material Girl! For one, it's Madonna so you know it's gonna be cool and working with Madonna and Lola has been an unbelievable experience. They have such great sense of style, each brought their personal touch to the styling for the campaign." Momsen added, "A Material Girl can be anyone you want, it's all about making the style your own, that's what is cool about it."

The collection will launch exclusively in select 200 Macy's stores across the country and on www.macys.com on August 3rd for the back-to-school season.  To support the launch, a national advertising campaign will appear in August and September issues of fashion, lifestyle and entertainment magazines such as Teen Vogue, Seventeen, Nylon and Cosmopolitan amongst others, be heavily integrated online and appear in cinemas throughout the summer. The fall campaign follows a highly successful teaser campaign asking the question, "Who's That Girl?" Taylor was recently revealed as the celebrity muse chosen by Madonna and Lola. The campaign was shot on the streets of Brooklyn, New York by famed photographer, Tom Munro.

To celebrate the launch of Material Girl on August 3rd, Taylor Momsen will make a special appearance at Macy's Herald Square in New York and perform live.

Dari Marder, chief marketing officer, Iconix Brand Group, Inc., commented, "Taylor is a Material Girl, she has the ability to carry off numerous looks- edgy, rocker, flirty - which is exactly what the brand represents. It's all about expressing your own individual style."
