Tavi Gevinson announced on her blog yesterday that she is launching a magazine with legendary editor Jane Pratt, founder of Sassy and Jane.
As Jane Pratt is my own personal Jesus and Sassy is the reason I became interested in fashion as a 5th grader, this news fascinates/excites me. Gevinson promises that it "won't be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0)." I'm imagining a 'zine-like publication that barely relies on advertising, given the fact that advertising was always Pratt's biggest problem. (As is the case with any publication that voices a real, honest opinion.)
At the same time, the whole thing makes me a little uncomfortable, given that Tavi wasn't even alive when Sassy was still good. But I guess I wasn't alive when the Beatles were together, and I still liked them as a 15-year-old.
Hopefully they'll at least bring back Cute Band Alert.

What do you guys think about this? I'm curious.
Dont judge a book by its cover... Unless it's a magazine, in which case, sometimes the cover is the deciding factor of whether or not to buy the mag altogether.
The best covers of 2011 returned to a new naturalism and a fun aesthetic, like the Lara Stone T cover we're still drooling over, pictured at left. Sure, there's still room for artifice in fashion (see: Stella Tennant on Vogue Italia), but 2011 was a year for reflecting on natural beauties, incredible models, and stellar photography.
After toiling over hundred of covers, we're bringing you "The Best" according to us. Did we forget your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
