Our beloved Tavi Gevinson might finally be dealing with her first copycat, and the culprit, she thinks, is none other than Seventeen magazine.
Last Thursday, Seventeen announced its Body Treaty Plan after 14-year-old Julia Bluhm successfully protested against excessive air-brushing in the magazine. Now, teens are petitioning Teen Vogue to do the same, and are holding a protest in the form of a mock fashion shoot outside of the mag’s headquarters today.
Back in April, 14-year-old Julia Bluhm started petitioning Seventeen to print one unaltered photo spread in each of its issues. Nearly three months and over 84,000 signatures later, Bluhm and teenage girls around the world have won.
Yesterday afternoon we hit up Seventeen‘s party for its Pretty Amazing contest finalists. The purpose of the contest is to find girls who possess both outer talent and inner beauty, and one thing’s for sure: the five girls who have made it to the final round are doing some incredible things.
An eighth grade student is taking on Seventeen, and she has garnered support from nearly 15,000 people.
Chloe Moretz fronts the May issue of Seventeen and we totally dig the teen’s bubbly look. But Moretz told the mag that she’d pick video games over shoes any day.
Jennifer Lawrence — aka KATNISS EVERDEEN — fronts Seventeen‘s April issue, and the cover is giving us some serious ’90s nostalgia.
Admit it: you’ve totally taunted your little brother or sister about how much weight they’re going to gain during their first year of college, haven’t you? Well it turns out the dreaded Freshman 15, like a lot of stuff in the fashion industry, was all a lie created to sell magazines.
There’s always been something oddly intriguing about wearing a uniform. Today, WWD showcased three prep schools with a fashionably aware student body — Phillips Academy, Milton Academy, and Concord Academy. These schools may not have a uniform, but the girls are undoubtedly restricted to an official school dress code, as well as an unofficial one — which is directed by their prep school peers.
