Tavi is now a STYLIST!?!

Say it cheerfully however hard you teeth are gritted; ‘Congratulations Tavi!’ because she has just been commissioned to style a shoot for US style magazine, BlackBook. The idea was originally for Chloe Sevigny to model, but when she had to drop out due to a schedule clash, Tavi chose erm...reality TV star Christine Staub (whose mother, Danielle, is a lead on The Real Housewives of New Jersey) to do the honours.

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?
