It has been a couple of weeks for women. There’s a lot in the news that doesn’t make me happy to share and my heart hurts for all the women – the victims – that have had to endure their share of sexual harassment and sexual assault at the hands of men. This week, I’m seeing women come together in so many ways – through social media, through events, and through stories. I hate to have to witness a moment like this in 2017, but at the same time, I couldn’t be more proud of the strength in our voices right now. We could spend hours writing a post recapping all of my feelings from the past couple of weeks, but instead I’d like to share some photos of inspiring women from the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards.
On the other hand, I’m much more excited to watch this film over Pitch Perfect 3. Person to Person was at Sundance this year and is a film that highlights the stories of more than a handful of individuals – two of which include Michael Cera (our favorite!) and Tavi Gevinson. Remember when she was just a superstar child fashion blogger?! Now she’s in a movie! I’m really interested in seeing this and hoping it does well. The film will be out July 28th on limited release.
This is always one of our favorite events of the year and all today, I wanted to just continue refreshing Fashionista so that I could see the live coverage of all of the outfits. Instead, we worked. And every 45 minutes, we ended up refreshing, but then the days get ahead of us so now we’re playing catch up now. Here’s what we did see – we didn’t like Taylor’s outfit. Not one bit. We hated Selena’s boots. We weren’t surprised by Nicki Minaj and we loved Chloe Moretz and Bee Shaffer, but what else is new?! Now, let’s get to the coverage – it’s pretty much the post we’ve been waiting for all year long. This year’s theme was Manus x Machina. This also kind of hits home for us because well… you know, tech!
My teenage fashion icon Tavi Gevinson stopped by Jimmy Fallon earlier this week to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Rookie. During the interview, she also teaches him how to perfect the bitch face and it is pretty silly. Watch the entire clip here on Late Night!
Style blogger Tavi Gevinson and singer Cyndi Lauper are both starring in a new campaign for Uniqlo. These two women are complete opposites age-wise and career wise, but somehow these advertisements just make sense to me. It’s such an interesting collaboration, but unique in that I would have never imagined these two to be put together.
“STEP ONE: Look as much like you don’t care as possible. Remember, the opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference! So keep a straight face, and don’t flinch. (It always helps me to pretend I am a corpse.) If you’re one of those god-awful people who look all cheerful all the time, whose faces just naturally fall into a smile of any kind, you might have to use a little extra muscle to keep it looking like an emoticon.”
Is it possible to adore Tavi anymore than we already do right now? I don’t think so. Tavi’s got a successful blog and an online ‘zine that oozes coolness. Have I mentioned that she’s only 15 years old? Practically in every post that I ever write about her.

This will be the 19th and the last post of the night because I’m already predicting that I won’t make it to 20 before midnight. Today, I came across a Fash Cab video with two of my idols – Miss Connie Wang of Refinery 29 and 15-year old blogger Tavi Gevinson on Refinery 29 and it was basically the best thing I’ve seen all day. Connie’s career and background in fashion has always been impressive to me and Tavi is pretty much the coolest girl ever. In the video Tavi answers questions about her life away from fashion and how she spends her evenings. She may rub elbows with Anna Wintour a few times a year, but this girl is still a teenager and lives exactly like one. She’s also got the best hidden talent ever that I wish I had – (it involves Nicki Minaj!)
