According to The Moment's twitter account, Pop will fly teeny bopper blogger Tavi Gevinson to Paris next week to attend the couture shows, and we assume cover them for tavi.thepop.com. 1. When are you going to move to New York and start getting home-schooled, Ms. Tavi? 2. When you leave school for weeks at a time to cover shows, whether in Paris or New York, do your teachers make you keep a journal? Do you get to do extra credit? The Moment has since removed the tweet, but we saw it with our own eyes, so can somebody confirm this?

Crazy, Insane, Breaking News: Tavi and Jane Pratt--You Know, Sassy's Jane Pratt--Are Launching a Magazine
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. Submissions, ideas, etc. can be sent to MagazineSubmissionsAreFun@gmail.com. What do you guys think about this? I'm curious.
