Tavi Gevinson gets access to John Galliano over Jeanne Beker

When we last wrote about Tavi Gevinson’s Fashion Television debut, there was just a teaser clip of her coverage of New York fashion week available on-line. Now, FT has released an eight-minute clip about the suburbanite turned celebrity teen blogger taking over for Jeanne Beker. Our favourite part: when Gevinson tells Beker she spoke with designer John Galliano after his show, an opportunity Beker was not granted. Beker turns to the camera and says, “She got a chance to talk to John Galliano and I didn’t!” Cheer up, Jeanne: you’re still our favourite fashion queen.

Tavi Gevinson for FT [Fashion Television]

    Maybe Jeanne needs to wear a massive bow?

  • Mike

    There’s something about a 13 year old girl with grey hair that scares the crap out of me. Although she seems to know what she’s doing, good for her.

  • Alexandra

    Perhaps Galliano thought he was giving an old lady a break.

  • Dan

    Please, Toronto fashion is old, tired, and boring. So is Jeanne Beker. Tavi Gevinson is not everyone’s cup of tea but she’s young, very articulate, and wholly devoted to the goings on of the fashion world. Tavi makes me wish I’d thought of blogging about my passions when I was young enough to feel highly inclined to do so. Don’t hate Tavi, pat her on the back.

  • Walt

    Tavi Gevinson is a 13 year old girl with grey hair taken seriously about being an authority on high fashion. Huh? Has the fashion world gone totally bizarro? Yuk.
