NEWSFLASH: Tavi the blogger now a stylist?!

I'm sure by now most of you know who this young lady is right? Tavi Gevinson of Style Rookie is one successful blogger to say the least...and only 14! I read something this morning that is likely to have tongues wagging and eyes rolling for sure!

Grazia announced that that Tavi is now a stylist! Yup... she's been commissioned to style a shoot for the US mag BlackBook for their September issue... with absolutely no (professional) experience! Interesting...

I couldn't help but notice Grazia's voice/tone in their article... Perhaps it had something to do with Paula Reed, their Fashion Ed being sat behind Tavi and posting this pic.

I know, this post is kinda out of my usual blog context but I do love a good discussion.
I have to ask the same question too -
Is it even legal for a 14 year old to be working (with the exception of paper boy, cafe jobs)? In the UK, you must be the minimum age of 16 and have a National Insurance Number (for tax purposes).

Anyhow, I can't wait to see the shoot & see what she pulled!
