While sitting at our desk this afternoon, somewhat anxiously awaiting the day when, inevitably, superstar style blogger Tavi Gevinson will sign our check, we stumbled across this little bit of news wonder: The Style Rookie herself will be guest tweeting and blogging for Barney‘s on Fashion’s Night Out, and the store’s creative director and erstwhile New York Observer columnist Simon Doonan, took it upon himself to try to get into her head by means of a few random questions. But for a man who wrote a book called Eccentric Glamour and for a girl who’s arguably the coolest thing since Birkin, these two had a pretty boring conversation. Alas, the highlight reel, in no particular order:
Simon Doonan: Who should be the next president?
Tavi Gevinson: Bill Haverchuck.
SD: Do you watch “Hoarders”?
TG: I should, shouldn’t I?
SD: Have you ever have a kleptomaniac impulse?
TG: Not at a store, but I stole a barrette from my friend when we were 4. It was a blue flower and glittery and I took it from on top of her head while she was in the bathroom.
SD: Dream date?
TG: And again I will say: Bill Haverchuck.
