At just 16 years of age, Tavi Gevinson has already been profiled by the New Yorker and the New York Times, become the darling of the fashion world, delivered a TED talk, and even launched her own website last year.
Gevinson added to her list of accomplishments Tuesday night by visiting “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” to promote “Rookie Yearbook One,” a book inspired by the online magazine.
It was Gevinson’s "Late Night" debut, but if she was nervous, she certainly didn’t seem like it. When Fallon asked the teen where she had grown up, the quick-witted teen answered, “I am still growing up outside Chicago.”
Gevinson, who started blogging about fashion when she was barely a tween and was sitting in the front row at Fashion Week by 13, recalled the moment she realized her life as a style prodigy was “way different than middle school”: It’s when she met Bjork.
