We know her Internet personality, have a good sense of her interviewing personality, but seeing Tavi Gevinson while actually working — well, that’s something new.
Today, BlackBook magazine released behind-the-scenes footage from Tavi’s first professional styling gig — an editorial shoot with IMG model and Real Housewives of New Jersey kid Christine Staub, appropriately titled Nobody’s Daughter.
We chose to judge the editorial as we would any. After all, despite their age — Tavi is fourteen and Christine is sixteen — they are both being paid to work on a legitimate high fashion shoot, so why not pit them against the pre-existing industry standards? And much to our surprise, the two worked perfectly together, and the photos came out wonderfully.
It would have been nice to see more stylist-model interaction, but we’ll settle for the footage we did get. Watch Tavi pick clothes from racks of her favorite designers and run into shots to fix a stray fringe, just like any good professional stylist would.
