Tavi The Professional Prepares For BlackBook Shoot With Mood Boards

The way things are going, it seems almost condescending to still refer to Tavi as a fashion blogger. The teen is really more of a professional these days, and is scoring paid gigs that most grown-up fashion industry workers would kill to have. For her latest project, Tavi is styling a shoot for BlackBook’s September…

Terry Richardson Sparks Controversy Again And Tavi Retaliates

Terry Richardson strikes again with a new scandal. The fashion photographer is causing an uproar with a particularly insane shoot just published in art mag The Journal. Taking things to a new level of creepiness, the cover features a naked young girl (as if we had to say it) getting her nipples tweaked. Other pic…

Tavi Delivers The Goods: Vintage Sassy Porn

Yeah, yeah, yeah—so apparently Tavi’s blog got shut down for a hot second yesterday after she posted some racy fashion pics. She was back up and running in no time with an apology from Google explaining that she had triggered automatic filters. Nevertheless, the internets freaked out over the scandal. As for us, the better…

A Peek At Tavi’s Life Behind The Blog

While the Tavi obsession may have started with the amazement of seeing a wee little thing write so intelligently about fashion, we have to admit that her snowballing popularity is now due, in part, to the fascination with what a teen blogger’s life is like.

When Tavi Met Marc

Well, lookie who I spotted while milling around backstage before Marc Jacobs’ show — the designer himself, meeting silver-haired (um, yes) teen fashion blogger, Tavi, while getting his makeup done. It was the first time the two had met and Tavi was there to interview Marc for a video blog. When the makeup artist asked…

Quotable: Tavi Defends Her Scandalous Hat

“I had no intentions of blocking the views of people behind me but it didn’t block any views-I’m SHORT, so watching the show behind me would be like watching it through a regular-sized adult, but better, because adult heads do not have holes in them. Other than the stinky cheese man, from that one book,…

Tavi’s Hat Incites Anger From The Twitterati—Except For Uncle Karl

Tavi sat front row at the Dior couture show in Paris, sporting this rather tall hair-bow-hat-thing. Obviously peeved that some teenager had gotten better seats, and will probably take her job next, a Grazia editor Tweeted the pic with an annoyed caption: “Dior through Tavi’s pesky hat.” The outrage quickly spread through the Twittersphere. But…

2009: The Year Of The Real Girls

If you came of age in the early 2000s, like I did, pop culture was strange—strangely plastic, that is. Britney Spears had the hottest body on earth, but she married a skeezebag and shaved her head. Paris Hilton had a sex tape, then a TV show and then everyone wanted to be her best friend.

The Trouble With Tavi?

Is Tavi becoming a case of too-much, too-soon?

The latest news: The 13-year-old blogger has been “hired” by Harper’s Bazaar to write copy for its January issue, which would seem like the magazine is treating the teen fashion blogger as an ingénue. Other editors, however, are taking issue with this move. Huffington Post…

Check Out Tavi’s Rodarte For Target Video

Style blogging wunderkind Tavi just released a fairly adorable and kind of intense video she made to “introduce you to Rodarte.” The video looks at the brand as a whole, the upcoming Target line (including a yellow knit sweater she loves), and even has a little Jason Schwartzman action going on. All in all,…

Where Do Designers Get Their Inspiration? Kids!

According to Loic Prigent, director of the fashion documentary “The Day Before,” there’s one question designers never want to answer: “”What is your inspiration?’ is the number one enemy in fashion journalism now. They really hate it when you ask it,” Prigent admits. [Wall Street Journal]

Yet, while Marc Jacobs might be dodgy about…

Who Should Be On The Next Cover Of Love Magazine?

Newcomer Love magazine made a splash with its debut issue featuring a naked Beth Ditto on the cover. So, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the U.K.-style journal’s second issue, the theme of which is “New Blood: The Young & The Reckless.” The mag is already doing some clever pre-marketing by leaking possible covers.
