  • Tavi Gevinson shot at the Rodarte studio during New York Fashion Week

Fashion insiders have been onto local 13-year-old fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson long enough for the backlash to have started. Today the Tribune takes a look at the petite online phenom, who says she’s declined offers to be on reality shows and write a book.

Are other fashion scribes jealous? Hell yeah—and count me among them. But it’s clear that Gevinson iis an extraordinarily mature and talented young person who’s simply following her interests in a way that happens to inspire and engage a lot of other people. If it weren’t for that, her success would be truly insufferable.
