“I went to fashion week for the first time when I was 13. People were confused about my being there for a few reasons; one was that I was a blogger. The word itself, ‘blog,’ it’s kind of an ugly word. It just doesn’t sound very legitimate. And fashion as an industry has been really behind about being online, so I think people were confused and angry that someone younger than them had figured it out. They would talk about how inappropriate it was for someone my age to be at fashion week. But this is coming from an industry that fetishizes youth!”

Tavi Gevinson, the teen fashion blogger behind The Style Rookie and Rookie Mag, spoke to the BBC yesterday about the snotty ‘tude she got from fashion industry insiders. True, a lot of them have a snotty ‘tude to begin with. However, the dismissivness against Tavi (who is now 15) was about deep fears that some adults have about being replaced by younger, fresher voices. Hello, jealousy. It also doesn’t help that she’s female. If Tavi was a boy, I think she’d automatically be given more respect.  Whether you think she’s a little weird, or you think she’s brilliant, you have to agree that Tavi is extremely bright, creative and ambitious. I’d much rather have her be a mouthpiece for young women than whoever the Disney Channel is pushing on kids these days. A lot of the Tavi trashing is just sexism and ageism and since she appears to be keen on not being “a flash in the pan,” I admire her strength with dealing with it. [NYmag.com]

Listen, Zooey Deschanel, You’re Not Weird — But These 12 Awesome Ladies Are!

I’ve been on the fence about Zooey Deschanel for some time now. Partly because she sang a ridiculously cute song with My Fantasy Boyfriend a few weeks ago, and partly because I feel that she’s cultivated this totally annoying Manic Pixie Dream Indie Rock Girl persona, and it just seems to goddamn fake. But then I’m like, eh, maybe I’m just jealz. Zooey D. has a TV show! And no credit card debt! And a cotton commercial wherein her warbly voice sings about “the touch, the feel” whilst we peer into her cavernous closet full of retro-inspired frocks. Good for her.

And then I read her interview in Allure magazine and I wanted to die. Keep reading »

  • Russell Brand plans to reveal details of his divorce from Katy Perry in his next memoir and she’s reportedly not happy about it. While I agree that sucks for her privacy, I quote the wise words of John DeVore: “If you go to bed with a writer, you wake up with shit written about you.” It’s true! [Us Weekly]

  • Not that it matters who Khloe Kardashian’s “real” dad is, but the National Enquirer is claiming O.J. Simpson — who Robert Kardashian famously defended — provided the spunk in her conception. I happen to think this must be a load of BS. [Evil Beet Gossip]

THE COOLEST DAD?
Brad wants his kids to think he's cooler than Spiderman. Read More »

When asked by E! if he envisioned the Jolie-Pitt brood becoming Hollywood royalty like their parents, Jon Voight didn’t hesitate in his answer:

“I do actually … I don’t want to say, but I have a feeling that they will. I have no doubt … Hollywood should be afraid of them. These guys are really something.”

Interesting. I wonder what Brad and Angelina think of that? I can’t see them at all being the type of acting parents who push the profession on their children, or even suggest it to them as a possibility for their future. I would even think that they wouldn’t want their kids to go into it, especially not at a young age. Of course, Angelina and her father have been known to have conflicting opinions, and I don’t doubt that this is one thing they may not agree on. [E! Online]

Dita Von Teese Designing A Lingerie Collection For Target

A lot of celebrity collaborations are ridiculous to the point of insulting (the one by Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz springs to mind) but, if we were to imagine a celebrity-designed collection that actually made sense, Dita von Teese doing lingerie wouldn’t be far off. The burlesque superstar designed a 26 piece capsule collection for Target Australia, to hit stores early February (pre-Valentine’s Day).

The collection, Von Follies by Dita von Teese, will feature “five groups of called balconette bras, high-cut briefs, G-strings, garters, bustiers and fitted corsolettes rendered in leopard-print satin with eyelash lace detail, red satin with delicate black lace trim and black lace with intricate ribbon detailing and signature Dita blue treatments. There will also be spot-pattern mesh overlay effects on nude and black grounds, as well as sexy looking nude and black fishnet,” according to WWD. Read more…
