If you were worried that Tavi had given up on the fashion world entirely, so much that she might not even be coming to Fashion Week at all, then fear not! Tavi will be in New York next week, according to The Hollywood Reporter, but instead of doing normal, banal things like sitting front row at Rodarte or meeting Anna Wintour (although don’t rule those possibilities out quite yet), she’ll sing a live cover of Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold” at the Standard Hotel in the East Village on February 12. Her performance will coincide with a late-night screening of Cadaver, a new animated movie in which she has a role (and in which she also covers Neil Young). Whether or not she’ll do anything Fashion Week–related while she’s in town remains a mystery; she did make a brief appearance last season to host a party with Advanced Style blogger Ari Seth Cohen, but kept a low-profile on the show circuit. Either way, it feels right that she’s coming, doesn’t it? She’s become one of those staples — like themed cupcakes, and fascinators — that Fashion Week just isn’t quite complete without.
