Say it cheerfully however hard you teeth are gritted; ‘Congratulations Tavi!’ because she has just been commissioned to style a shoot for
The choice of the 14 year old blogger with no experience of ‘the fashion cupboard’ (or closet, if you are in NY) was a bit of a risk for the editors, but apparently, she took to her task like a duck to water. Here’s what one of them had to say about the day Tavi came into the office for the run through.
“She created roughly a dozen perfect looks. They were unexpected and perhaps unlikely pairings, but they were also mature, intuitive and inspired”.
Yadda yadda. While we feel like saying; nobody likes a teacher’s pet, we also know that we’re going to be quite curious to see the shoot when it comes out, so we may as well admit that BlackBook made a shrewd decision when inviting her on board. Plus, she’s only 14. Does that mean they can pay a discounted rate or even claim it as work experience?
