Tavi Gevinson Tells Stephen Colbert He’s A Cool Dad

By: Julie Gerstein / January 25, 2013

Style Rookie blogger and fashion world phenom Tavi Gevinson was on “The Colbert Report” last night,to discuss her latest feat: the publication of Rookie Yearbook One, a compendium of some of the best writing and stories from the first year of Gevinson’s online magazine Rookie. Colbert was a bit in awe of his youngest-ever guest, and queried her for style advice. What might appeal to a mass audience, he asked? Gevinson recommended that he give himself a boy band haircut and carry around a puppy, because “there were some really great photos of the members of One Direction modeling puppies, so I feel like if you carried around a puppy and had boy band hair, you would be set.”

While Tavi admitted that she may have fallen behind on her English homework, she still proves that she’s a total champ and wise beyond her years. Let’s be friends? [The Colbert Report]
