Livia Lange and Olivia DeMirjian may just be two 13-year-old girls from Southern California, but they’re already self-publishing a monthly online magazine and building their empire. They took some time out before going to school to chat with us about their magazine, their stances on airbrushing, and the importance of social media.
Makeup tutorials might seem like a shallow thing, but sometimes inspiration can be found in the most unexpected of places. This is absolutely one of those times. First we saw Lauren Luke fight domestic abuse with a makeup how-to, and now a preteen is teaching us more about life than she is about eyeshadow.
Most movie premieres are frequented by the glamorous, well-established crowd, but last night’s premiere of ParaNorman in Los Angeles was a very youthful family affair. Teenagers and small children were in attendance, and they may have outshone the older guests!
Have we said enough times how much we adore Tavi Gevinson? Because we literally squealed with joy when we saw this — the teen editor-in-chief has landed the August cover of Bust magazine.
Sometimes a video like this comes along that just makes you feel a little bit better about the world.
Yesterday we reported that teenagers were protesting outside of Teen Vogue‘s Manhattan offices in the hopes that the magazine would make an anti-airbrushing, pro-diversity pledge. Now it’s sounding like things didn’t go as well as they had hoped.
totally jealous of obsessed with cool teenagers, and Chloë Moretz definitely makes that list. This kid is a great actress and a regular on the fashion scene, and now she’s adding the title of Aéropostale brand ambassador to her already-impressive resume.
Waxing salon chain Uni K Wax Center is currently up to its perfectly groomed eyebrows in criticism for running an ad that offered a 50 percent discount on all waxing services to girls ages 15 and under.
Tavi Gevinson, Karlie Kloss, Elle Fanning — we’ve entered an age in which some of fashion’s biggest “It” kids are teenagers. Which is why V Magazine‘s ”Youth Quake” issue, set to hit newsstands July 5, is perfectly on trend.
There’s nothing like watching a 15-year-old get morally and viscerally outraged about beauty pageants, but the best line comes from one preternaturally savvy teen, in response to the interviewer asking if Toddlers & Tiaras should even be on the air. “Yeah,” she responds. “Because it shows parents how not to act.”
There’s no real peg to this story, other than the fact that it’s two of our favorite teens, Hailee Steinfeld and Tavi Gevinson hanging out at Disneyland! But basically, the photos make us happy and (in a remarkable first) actually a little nostalgic for our teenage years.
If being jealous of a pair of teenage girls is wrong, then we don’t want to be right. We’ve dedicated a lot of words to praising web phenom Tavi Gevinson and an almost equal amount to the ethereal adorableness that is Elle Fanning, so you can imagine our tween-at-heart brains almost exploded when we saw that Tavi had interviewed Elle for her new site, Rookie.
Tavi Gevinson‘s new teen-targeted site, Rookie, launched today. And while we spent the morning poking around and waxing nostalgic about our high school years, two of our favorite fellow style sites spoke with Tavi about the idea, ethos, and inspiration behind the e-zine.
You’d think a guy whose teenage employees have accused him of turning them into sex slaves would want to do everything in his power to not look like a child molester. And yet, American Apparel CEO and skeezeball-in-chief Dov Charney is currently selling a t-shirt that proclaims “Teenagers Do It Better” in big block letters.
Will we ever get over the fact that Martha Stewart used to model? Probably not. And now we’ve got one more example of her past prowess, via a 1956 Unilever commercial for deodorant soap starring then-15 year old Stewart.
Here’s a sad truth about my life: I did not look cute as a teenager. No really. The years between 13 and 20 were, for me (and I’m guessing for a lot of people out there), absolutely and tragically fraught with horrible sartorial choices, bad hairdos and even worse skin. There are a few things I didn’t know back then that could’ve helped speed the process along — and it turns out, they’re lessons some adults could use, too.
With all of Justin Bieber‘s forays into the beauty business, it was really only a matter of time before a South American teen zine shopped an almost offensive amount of lip gloss onto the Canadian pop sensation’s lips.
So-called plus sized model Crystal Renn walked in three major shows during Paris Fashion Week, and getting tapped by Zac Posen, Jean Paul Gaultier and Karl Lagerfeld‘s shows would be a huge deal for any model. Renn says it’s a breakthrough, but we’re not holding our breath just yet.
Confession: when we were 14, we loved Abercrombie. We thought their polos were so cool (that embroidered moose!) and that the boys who worked their were so cute. (Don’t judge – Gaga wore Abercrombie, too!) And we were always super jealous when our older-looking friends were approached by the salespeople — sorry, “brand models” — and asked to apply to work there. But then we turned 15. Nearly a decade later, times have changed. Not only do teens think Abercrombie is, like, so totally lame, some are even protesting the brand.
