Elle Women in Hollywood Awards

Vanessa Hudgens

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.

Person to Person

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.

2016 Met Gala Red Carpet

Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton

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!

Someone’s trying a little too hard, right?

Tavi Gevinson Schools Jimmy Fallon on the Bitchface

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!

One in the Same

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.

Perfecting the Bitchface – Not As Easy As You Think

“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. To read more about the steps in producing this “Unamused” bitchface look and other bitchfaces, click here.

Fash Cab w/ Connie and Tavi!

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!)

To watch the video, click here. Trust me- it’s worth it.

Yesterday, teenage blogger Tavi Gevinson launched her new website, Rookie, which is supposed to be sort of a bible for teenagers. It actually kind of rocks though and I think I’ll probably find myself on the site every now and then.  On the site, Tavi covers music, movies + tv, style (no surprise there!) and love and sex. At first, I thought that might be a little inappropriate as a topic for Rookie, but then I remembered 16 and Pregnant already happened. We’re a little too late for that…no pun intended? If I were a teenager, I think I would love to have an outlet like this to read and I have no doubts in Tavi of her success because she launched her career as a blogger at 13 and has only continued to blossom ever since. This site has already been compared to sites like HelloGiggles and The Hairpin (both blogs I read,) but is catered to the younger crowd. Check out Rookie here!

The Life Span of a Blog

Last night, I stayed up late trying to finish my most recent “A Collection” post. I had gone three months without still finishing it and the reason for that was because I was just far too busy this past winter quarter. I figured that I would be able to get through my blog roll of what has to be 100 blogs (I haven’t counted just yet) over spring break, but I wasn’t even able to update that much. “A Collection” was important for me to finish because I had had a special request from a dear friend who looks forward to the post and because I knew that once school started again, I would probably never have the chance to finish. Six months worth of Tumblr backup is not ideal.

It’s cute because my friends have adopted Yow Yow! as a nickname for me and when I have real life conversations with people, there will often times be a small reference made to a direct sentence that I have written. Recently, I have been asking myself the question of “How long can I do this for?” Yow Yow! is two years old, but I would imagine that at some point I will have to stop. Yow Yow! is and will always be a part of my life, but it’s not my whole life. I’m a student, I work, and I have a whole life apart from this.

I felt compelled to address this issue because for awhile, there was a lull period where I could not update for a week and a half and then when it came back to updating again, no post felt right enough. I felt extremely limited in the material I could write about because I no longer knew what would be interesting to readers and that’s something I still struggle with.

Yesterday, 14-year old blogger Tavi Gevinson (Style Rookie) reflected back on her moments within the fashion industry such as meeting John Galliano for the first time and sitting next to Anna Wintour at Fashion Week. She also announced that she would be shifting her focus from fashion to other endeavors as well, which is completely normal because I think we can all sort of relate to a shift in interest in the period between middle school and high school. Like Tavi, I feel like I am at that stage in my life as I draw closer to the end of my college career and closer to the real world. While blogging is still an interest of mine, there are other outlets that I would like to pursue and that is something that will become more apparent in the next few weeks even on the blog. I still love to blog because I also feel that it keeps me sane, but please don’t be expecting 15 posts a day because that is no longer realistic for me.

Today is the first day of school so I would like to wish all of my happy seniors a wonderful last first day of school and to my working ones a Monday that doesn’t suck.

Seventeen Magazine just got schooled by Tavi

See anything wrong with the June/July 2010 cover of Seventeen Magazine? I didn’t at first. The 13 or 14 year old blogger of Style Rookie, Tavi Gevinson, however,  has just written an open letter to Seventeen Magazine slamming them for their bottom right corner headline: The Party Drug That Can Make You Fat & Ugly.

In the letter, Tavi questions the magazine’s threat to appearance when the main issue should be the damage to your health and body from party drugs.

“By trying to discourage the use of drugs with the threats that it will make someone fat and ugly,” she wrote, “you’re saying the worst thing that can happen to your average reader, a teenage girl, as a result of drug use, is not that she will have any damage done to her brain or become unhappy, but that her appearance will suffer.”

The girl has got a point. Tavi | 1 Seventeen Magazine | 0

I’m interested to see how Seventeen Magazine will respond to that.

Madonna’s Daughter Reminds Us What A Pre-teen sounds like

OK but no joke gladiator sandals are OUT. They came out in summer 2008 and I was like, ok those are really cute. Then 2009 comes around and people are still wearing them so I’m like, ok whatever it’s just a phase. BUT NOOOOO.

Rumi Neely does Forever 21

My idol Rumi Neely of the blog Fashion Toast just shot a new campaign for Forever 21. The shots look amazing! Lately, okay – over the last couple of years, bloggers have spawned into household names. Rumi has shot for a number of campaigns, Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes created her own shoe collection in collaboration with Urban Outfitters, and Tavi Gevinson the 14-year old was sitting pretty in the front row of all of New York Fashion Week. It’s not celebrities that are stealing all of the press lately, it’s the bloggers. Personally, I think it’s kind of awesome. Behind a photo shoot for a celebrity is a stylist and people that do hair and makeup. Behind a blogger, there’s no one. They’re a one-person show.

I wonder what it’s like to stroll around in New York City and stumble upon your face plastered up everywhere…
