Fourteen-year-old fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson has made a name for herself with her site Style Rookie and now she can add "Stylist" to her resume (do teenagers have resumes?). She just styled her first fashion editorial for BlackBook's September issue, starring model Christine Staub, daughter of "Real Housewife" Danielle.
According to BlackBook, the team let Tavi run wild in their fashion closet and:
When we returned to check on her progress an hour later, she'd created roughly a dozen perfect looks. They were unexpected and perhaps unlikely pairings, but they were also mature, intuitive and inspired. When we first commissioned Gevinson to style the story, we weren't sure what to expect. That was part of the allure. Can such a new and young fashion authority, one for whom Internet images often replace the touch and texture of actual collections, do the job of a stylist? Can she edit the season's best clothes, and partner them in an organic and interesting way? Will she be able to put together a fashion narrative and consistent tone? The answer is yes.
Wow! We can't wait to see the results.
