Tavi’s Harper’s Bazaar assignment was a little strange. The magazine’s monthly “Fabulous at Every Age” feature begins with age 20, not 14, and here they were offering runway critiques from a 13-year-old. But oh well, the publicity must have been fun for all involved. Tavi, who has styled for Blackbook and served as a muse of sorts for Rodarte, most recently interviewed Gwen Stefani to discuss her L.A.M.B. line for Teen Vogue. And the result was pretty great.
I can’t say I’m enthusiastic about the recent celebrity-turned-designer trend. In fact, I’m a skeptic. Too often I feel people are expected to drop a couple hundred dollars just because X celebrity was good in Y sitcom, thus somehow making X’s design abilities top-notch. So, though a fan of Gwen Stefani’s music, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I entered the L.A.M.B. studio.
