Tavi Defends Her Hat, Surfaces in ‘French Vogue’

Earlier this week Tavi, the tween blogger behind Style Rookie, set off a press frenzy when she was tweetpic’d wearing an over-sized Stephen Jones-made bow hat to the Dior haute couture show in Paris. In defense of her chapeau on steroids, Tavi writes “Dudes, it is a HAT. And I’m SHORT. So watching the show behind me would be like watching it through a regular-sized adult, but better, because adult heads do not have holes in them. Other than the stinky cheese man, from that one book, from like, second grade, or something. I’m pretty sure the Grazia writer that tweeted this picture was joking, too? Or did I miss something…” Tavi goes on to say that she wishes news sites would write about more than just what one wears to a fashion show: “otherwise, it feels pretty pointless to me!” Ouch.

(‘DiggThis’)“I forgot to say so here because I was packing and then we left and then the hotel didn’t have wireless and then I felt awkward using the computer in the lobby?,” Tavi continued. Of her experience in Paris, Tavi writes, “the day before the show we went to the Dior atelier (which was, in a word, amazing, but that’s all for another time) and spent a bit of time with Stephen Jones, who, being the incredibly friendly and charming mad hatter… was very kind as to give me this hat he had made as a sample for one of Dior’s couture shows a couple years ago but ended up not being used.” Not too shabby a freebie, Tavi. And, considering she’ll soon make an appearance in French Vogue, it’s been quite a year so far for the Style Rookie. For those still on the fence as to whether or not a teenager deserves a front row seat and fashion cred to boot, check out Tavi’s newly posted review of the Dior show replete with references to “ass scientists” and “having ice cold diarrhea.”
