13-year-old wunderkind blogger Tavi Gevinson is the new darling of downtown. She was a special guest in the front rows of New York Fashion Week shows, making the rounds from Maria Cornejo to Marc Jacobs, and hob-knobbing with Y-3's Yohji Yamamoto and Alexander Wang.
Tavi has developed a loyal following with her fashion blog Style Rookie.
Here's how she describes herself:
Tiny 13 year old dork that sits inside all day wearing awkward jackets and pretty hats. Scatters black petals on Rei Kawakubo's doorsteps and serenades her in rap. Rather cynical and cute as a drained rat. In a sewer. Farting. And spitting out guts.
Tavi got Fashion Week's most coveted ticket: a seat at the Marc Jacobs show Monday night. Here was her succinct synopsis:

What. an. insane. night.
Like I said before, the real review in which I articulate will be at my Pop blog, but for now?
As mentioned, Tavi will review the shows at ThePop.com the shows once she catches her breath.
