Have you heard of this girl yet? You must have! Tavi Williams is a 13 year old blogger who is a fashion editor in her own right with a precocious writing style to boot...Her blog Style Rookie consists of spot on critiques of up to date fashion and self portraits of herself in her own eclectic garb inspired by looks on the runway as well as from movies such as Harold and Maude, Vertigo, Where the Wild Things Are, Manhattan, and Marie-Antoinette. She dresses up in found vintage frocks and giant bangles mixed with designer pieces the designers themselves have sent her. Usually I roll my eyes at these pre-teen internet-made-famous photographers/fashionistas/bloggers but Tavi seems as sharp as a tack, and says her philosophy for style is to embrace the rude stares and know that what you're wearing isn't boring! She's even made a rap for Commes des Garcons. She isn't at all a socialite (yet) but she's getting invites left and right to fashion shows and has even been asked to design leggings for the design sisters Rodarte.
See her this month on the cover of POP Magazine in a collage of illustrations by Damien Hirst! Read Tavi's reviews of fashion week over at POP's Blog.
These next few are from a shoot she did with a bunch of clothes LOVE Magazine sent her to put together, model, and photograph.
See the interview that went along with this shoot in Interview Magazine Online
You can buy this shirt inspired by Tavi made by Karoline on her blog
Still from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds serves as style inspiration for Tavi
A look she put together based on the earth tones used in the book and upcoming film Where The Wild Things Are.
