Teen fashion maven Tavi Gevinson is 16 going on 30
Tavi Gevinson, for whom we will all work one day, was walking home from school, books pressed to her chest, skirt swishing. It was a portrait of suburban idyll, the first day of class at Oak Park and River Forest High School. And yet, during the first two class periods, she held back tears, she said. She didn't have friends in those classes and couldn't help thinking she had a great summer and now, with the start of her junior year, it was gone.
