When you were 11 years old, how did you spend your free time? While you may have been dressing Barbie dolls, Chicago-born Tavi Gevinson was acting as her own personal stylist and posting her photographed looks on her very own fashion blog. From pre-teen blogger to teenage fashion muse and editor-in-chief of her very own magazine, Tavi is an inspiration in every sense of the word.
Here at SDN, we <3 Tavi. Read on for the lowdown on her many, many achievements.
It was the spring of 2008 and Tavi, only in middle school, was busy posting away on her blog, The Style Rookie. Much to the surprise of fashion bloggers, journalists, and designers everywhere, Tavi seemed to have a compelling gift for creating unique looks resembling something of those featured in designer lookbooks — and not so much those of a young schoolgirl. While her style was a little out there, even for the most seasoned fashionista, her creativity and spark did not go unnoticed. Just months later, Tavi was featured in an article in the New York Times, and her fame grew from there.
In 2009, she was given the opportunity to do something most only dream of. She was invited to sit front row at many shows during Fashion Week, adding further flame to her fashion-fueled fire. Since then, she has become the muse of numerous designers around the world, been featured in numerous publications for not only her style, but also her views on feminism, and has even collaborated with designers to help create their collections.
Seasoned Style Vet
Currently editor-in-chief of her own online magazine, Rookie Magazine, Tavi is the Anna Wintour of her generation. She also recently published her own book, a super fun guide on being a teenage girl, which is entitled Rookie Yearbook One. Most recently, she had the opportunity to pursue acting. She filmed her first feature film this past summer, before returning home to start her junior year of high school last fall.
Along with her career, Tavi’s style has progressed tremendously, taking her from rookie to veteran in just four years. From slightly frumpy (but still kind of cool, right?!) to high fashion, Tavi has a natural talent for finding the perfect balance between thrifted, vintage pieces and the more modern ones of today. The end result is an ultra-trendy look that is uniquely her own.
…Isn’t that what we all want?

Looking for some serious beauty inspiration for the big ball drop? Have no fear, fair scarf ladies. We scoured the best hair, makeup, and nail trends of the season to bring you the worthiest looks for your New Year’s Eve party. We recommend mixing and matching one or two of these trends for ultimate NYE star status — and for a serious chance at that midnight kiss.
1. The Metallic Lid
Blend an array of gold hues and silver shades for a stunning lid look that’s perfect for an upscale soiree.
TIP: Make sure to keep the darker hues closer to the lash line and the lighter hues closer to the brow bone. The most intense hue should be arched along the outside crease of your lid like the picture above.
2. The Top Knot
Kick this mega-2012 trend into high gear by positioning a ponytail on top of your head (directly upwards from the nape of your neck), teasing your mane, and then shaping a ballerina bun using bobbies.
TIP: To keep your ‘do messy-but-precise like Ashley Olsen, try these corkscrew hair pins. They do the work of twenty! Also, the SDN gals recently went to a Tricoci University beauty event, and one of their super-cool hairstylists says to skip the brush for a perfectly piecey ‘do.
3. The Burgundy Lip
Ahhh, the burgundy lip. This vampy, Old Hollywood look is simply gorgeous on all skin tones — yes, even the pale gals out there (trust me, there’s quite a few of us in the SDN office). Keep the rest of your look bright and glowy like Camilla Belle.
TIP: We’ve tried this Wet & Wild Dark Wine version. It glides on so easily, and it’s a bargain — only 99 cents at the drugstore!
4. The Shimmery Polish
Champagne-hued nails are a glitzy gal’s best friend. If you’re feeling a little more playful, try a sparkly red, navy, or hot pink polish.
TIP: Get a gorgeous mixed metal look by following this tutorial from The Beauty Department!
5. The Sleek Pony
The sleek pony was the “it” hair trend on 2012 runways, but we love Kristin Cavallari’s looser version with a slightly tousled mane. This chic pony is perfect for any party look, especially when paired with glam drop earrings.
TIP: After blow drying your hair, curl it first before putting it into a pony. The trick to making waves and keeping prom-like curls at bay? Keep your strand out of the iron clamp, and don’t curl the ends (the last inch) of your hair. Also, be sure to finish with a shine serum to keep your hair smooth and sleek!
6. The Chic Headpiece
This accessory is the perfect party hair-topper, and you can cater it to show off your one-of-a-kind style. Try a classic headpiece like Olivia Wilde, don one with rhinestones or sequins for a glam look, or choose one with studs to get a little rebellious.
TIP: Place the hairband on your head before putting your hair up! Make sure to tease the hair at the crown of the band, and then sweep your locks into a loose bun.
7. The Navy Smokey Eye
For a special occasion like NYE, the navy smokey eye is a modern upgrade to the usual gray. Plus, it makes you look super mysterious and sexy — definitely tools for catching that cutie’s eye on the dance floor!
TIP: Place a tissue underneath your eye while you’re applying and blending the shadow with a brush — it keeps any dust from falling under your lids, giving you a “black eye effect.”
8. The Braided ‘Do & 9. The Fuchsia Lip
Channel your inner Heidi (sans the goats) with a milkmaid-braided hairdo that’ll keep any New Year’s dress looking girly. Another lovely trend? A stunning fuchsia lip. This color looks good on every skin tone — the brighter, the better — so pucker up!
TIP: Check out Keiko Lynn’s blog, the braided beauty behind this hairstyle how-to.
10. The Bright Red Pout & 11. The Beanie
If you find yourself party hopping this NYE, don’t forget a super cute and trendy beanie. We love the styles featured recently on The Glitter Guide! And as always, stop traffic with a bright red lip on December 31st. Red commands attention — and so will you. ;)
TIP: To keep your red color from running, outline your lips with a neutral lipliner before applying the lipstick. Always go matte with the lipstick, unless you want to get glitzy with a chic baroque look!
