Tavi Gevinson ‘Silently Freaked Out’ While Meeting Anna Wintour


She may only be 14, but Style Rookie blogger Tavi Gevinson has already been to some pretty cool parties. At Barneys last night for Fashion’s Night Out, everyone from Anna Wintour to the New York Times’ Cathy Horyn to actress Gretchen Moll came by to check out the young blogger's ring. Perched in the corner of the store, the pint-size teenager was autographing tote bags designed by Montauk artist Tin Ojedaher. Some bore gifts: Three Horace Mann students presented her with a copy of their school’s fashion magazine and launched into an impromptu interview for a piece. (Cards were exchanged.) Another young fan sporting a gold lamé motorcycle jacket gifted Gevinson with a cupcake and a handmade hair bow.

Anna Wintour stopped by the signing to gasps and flash bulbs. Wintour told the stunned blogger, “Have fun tonight.” After their brief encounter, Gevinson turned to high-five her handlers. It was her first time meeting A-Dubs. “I was silently freaking out,” she said.

Gevinson, who once dyed her hair gray, was sporting light pink locks last night. We pointed out that model Abby Lee Kershaw just bleached her hair peroxide blonde. Does she think white hair is the new gray? “I don’t really care about trends,” she said before being engulfed by the crowd.
