Tavi Gevinson Calls Out ASOS on Its Rookie Mistake
This morning, perhaps while doing a little online shopping, fashion wunderkind Tavi Gevinson found something on ASOS's website that pissed her off. Never one to sit back and keep quiet, Gevinson did something pretty normal for a 17-year-old girl--she took to Twitter.

Alexa Chung Tells Us Her New Book Will Be More Like Tavi Gevinson's 'Rookie'--Not a 'Style Bible'
While majorly girl crushing on a slew of kick-ass talented and cleverly funny stars at the Glamour “These Girls.” event last night, I spotted my style idol Alexa Chung (well, she and Rachel Bilson are a constant tie in my book) before she was set to hit the decks--er, insert a pre-recorded CD--at the after-party. I had a few burning questions on my mind to ask the DJ/TV host/Gossip Girl guest star/designer/spokesmodel (did I get them all?), who was looking gorge as usual sporting winged eyeliner, a bouffant-styled ponytail coif and a very downtown girly printed navy dress.

Seventeen's take however, plays up the celebrity angle and has the so-called "A-lister" done up in hair and makeup and filmed in the magazine's offices.

How Tavi Gevinson Makes Money
At this point, we know a fair amount about Tavi Gevinson and her evolution from a 13-year-old blogging about her fashion obsession to a 16-year-old (as of Saturday, according to her Wikipedia. Also, what? All this happened in less than three years?) running a successful and awesome editorial site for teens, doing public speaking engagements, singing and starring in films and ad campaigns. What she hasn't spoken much about is how she monetizes it all or how much help she gets from, you know, adults.
