It's rare that you get to see someone, who isn't a famous musician or actress, grow up before your eyes, but that has certainly been the case with Tavi Gevinson. Not to say that she's even "grown up" just yet--the Rookie editor is still only 16, but it seems like ages since she was a wide eyed 11 year old attending her first fashion week. Tavi is on the cover of Bust magazine this month, interviewed by one of her fellow Rookie editors about everything from her disillusionment with the fashion world, which occurred when Anna Wintour asked her, "When do you go to school?" while sitting front row with Tavi during fashion week, to her plans for the future. On the cover, Tavi is wearing her blond hair in the beehive hairdo that she taught so many girls how to do themselves on Rookie, and a soft, sage colored turtleneck sweater. Is it just us, or does the blogger-wunderkind look more than a little bit like Michelle Williams? It takes your breath away how much the teenager has changed since her days experimenting with hair color and layering, but it's also just right, and what being a teenager is all about.
Tavi looks California cool.

Inside the mag, Tavi looks more like herself, in a combination of colors and prints from the 90's, and classic pieces, calling to mind classic 50's high school style and the on-screen ingenues of the 60's. Flowery Dr. martens are paired with a printed poodle skirt and fruit punch colored lips, as Tavi sits on a garden wall that would not be out of place in her much beloved California, where she says she plans to move after high school.
