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]
The British singer Morrissey is a notoriously ornery guy — and we love him for it. On last night’s episode of “The Colbert Report,” Morrissey and Stephen Colbert went head to head over Morrissey’s strict vegetarian stance and his total distaste for the British royal family.

Check out his performance on last night’s show after the jump!

That’s right: Gabby, McKayla, Kyla, Aly and Jordyn — along with Aly’s very excitable mom — all made an appearance. And they were tasked with the very important job of making sure Stephen had his pen. You know how Stephen can get about his pens. [Comedy Central]
Last night, Olivia Wilde was on the “The Colbert Report” to promote her new film, “People Like Us.” While that movie looks like a total snooze and I can’t co-sign on Chris Pine’s stupid eyebrows, Olivia seems like a totally rad lady. She stumped for Obama, wore her Dogs Against Romney pin, and challenged Colbert to an acting contest to see “who could act harder.” [Comedy Central]
So maybe you’ve heard about Sweden’s weird Twitter experiment, wherein they’re allowing perfectly average Swedish citizens to take over the country’s Twitter account for a week at a time. The nation’s current national Twitterer is a woman named Sonja, who seems mildly obsessed with Hitler and Jews and “The Little Mermaid.” Don’t believe us? Check out this Tweet…
