Tavi Gevinson was just a misunderstood middle school student from suburban Chicago who started a fashion blog with photos of her exuberantly eccentric outfits. That blog, Style Rookie, won her celebrity friends, invitations to Paris fashion shows, and a lengthy profile in The New Yorker — all by the time she was 14.
See some of Tavi’s early style below.
Gevinson graduated from high school this year and she’s showing no signs of slowing down. Now the editor of the online magazine Rookie, she has acted in a few movies and has just made her Broadway debut in This Is Our Youth, a play by Kenneth Lonergan about three kids growing up privileged and confused. Gevinson plays Jessica Goldman, a 19-year-old who frets about how age will change her.
