Mea Culpa, Miss Gevinson.

Tavi Gevinson from Style Rookie Fashion blog at 15

LOOK AT HER ALL GROWN UP. Tavi Gevinson, as you might know, started her own fashion blog when she was 11. By the time she was 13, this weird looking/dressing teen was front-row at NY Fashion Week (OMG how I would LOVE that!) and being featured in Vogue magazine. She’s grown being as admired as criticized: Prada is one of the brands that frequently pampers her with goodies, among many other, she has styled for Blackbook Magazine and Pop Magazine, reviewed spring collections for Harper’s Bazaar and this girl actually *knows* Karl Lagerfeld, just to name a few coveted facts in her oh so short life. Can you believe this?

A couple of years ago (and not because I envied her, I swear it was totally honest!) I was one of those who thought of her as just a very weird kid. She dressed in a dreadful way and was kinda creepy, but… Now I really admire her for looking so balanced in her age (and beautiful, right?!) despite all the nasty talk and for all the projects she’s managed to put up, like her own magazine “RookieMag”. After all, she was just a kid playing dress-up and she’s become a rather interesting teen, as you can see in this recent interview for BBC News.

I bet it won’t take long until she starts doing some more serious styling and and getting all sort of collabs. Check her blog here. Wish you all the luck, girl!

OLHEM PARA ELA TÃO CRESCIDA. Tavi Gevinson começou o seu próprio blog de moda quando tinha 11 anos. Quando chegou aos 13, esta miúda de aspecto e vestir muito estranhos estava em todo o lado: era convidada para a primeira fila da NY Fashion Week (o que EU queria isto!) e entrevistada para a Vogue, por exemplo. Durante os últimos anos, a Tavi cresceu tão admirada como criticada: a Prada é uma das várias marcas que a mimam frequentemente com ofertas, já fez styling para a Blackbook Magazine e a Pop Magazine, editou colecções de Primavera para a Harper’s Bazaar e esta miúda conhece *mesmo* o Karl Lagerfeld, só para ficarmos com uma ideia da quantidade de factos invejáveis nesta existência tão curta. Dá para acreditar?

Há uns anos (e juro que não era inveja!) eu era uma das pessoas que a achavam simplesmente esquisita. Ela vestia-se de uma forma meio assustadora… mas hoje admiro-a realmente. Parece-me que cresceu bastante equilibrada, apesar das más línguas, e já montou alguns projectos pessoais como a revista “RookieMag”. Afinal, ela era apenas uma criança a brincar ao faz-de-conta e acabou por se transformar numa adolescente bem interessante. Ora confirmem nesta entrevista recente para a BBC News.

Aposto que não vai demorar muito para agarrar vários projectos de styling a sério e uma série de parcerias na calha. Vejam o blog dela aqui. Boa sorte, miúda!
