Japan Goes Mad for 13-Year-Old Fashion Blogger Tavi

Tavi Gevinson is getting more famous by the day. She was all over New York Fashion Week — on many a front row, at that — and “defines Rodarte for Target,” the Mulleavy sisters told Teen Vogue. (Teen Vogue adds the designers have been fans of her “cutting fashion commentary” since they first read her blog StyleRookie, and even sent her a custom pair of hand-knit fall-2008 tights.) Anyway, the Japanese are the latest to catch Tavi fever. She will be the guest of honor at Comme des Garçons’s holiday party on Friday, November 27 in Tokyo. WWD reports she has several photo shoots lined up with Japanese magazines for her trip, as well. Though she's just 13, Tavi is practically a seasoned pro — she appeared earlier this year on the cover of Dasha Zhukova's first issue of Pop. So she's a trusted fashion critic, high-fashion muse, and celebrity blogger. And we are blogging in a messy gray cubicle without custom-made designer legwear. Where did we go wrong? Oh yeah. Aging. No bitterness here!
