Tavi Gevinson is an American writer, magazine editor, actress, and singer.
Gevinson was educated at Oak Park and River Forest High School in Illinois. She is taking a gap year in the 2014/2015 academic year before attending New York University.
Gevinson started her fashion blog, Style Rookie, in 2008, when she was only 12 years old. With her commentary on the latest fashion trend, the blog began drawing nearly 30,000 readers each day, shocking the fashion world and becoming one of the most popular online style guides at the time. With her blog success, Tavi was invited to attend New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week. She was later partnered with Borders&Frontiers to sell her own designs as well as commissioned to write articles for famous fashion magazines such as Harper's Bazaar.
A mere four years later, she had shifted her focus to pop culture and feminist discussion. At the age of fifteen, she founded Rookie Magazine, where she is currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief, an online publication aimed at teenagers tackling the political and cultural issues of the day.
Gevinson began her acting career in a short film, First Bass, in 2008. In 2012, she voiced a character in the animated short film Cadavar, which was long-listed for an Academy Award. In 2014 and 2015, she starred in This Is Our Youth in Chicago and on Broadway, opposite Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin.
In both 2011 and 2012, she appeared on the Forbes 30 Under 30 in Media list. In 2014, she was named one of "The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014" by Time magazine.
