Are you fucking kidding me???!\
This bitch gets to sit with Vogue, and even gets professional photo shoots done for high fashion magazines.\
She dyes her hair white.\
The world is seriously fucked up!\
Google images her!
She looks like a little old lady. And she''s ugly.
This is some serious Benjamin Button(s) shit.
No nothing CUNT! CUNT!! CUNT!!! CUNT!!!!
Ees ingrish you secon langage?
why does anyone care what a 14yr old has to say, especialy about fashion?
She is the next cover girl for "Progeria" magazine.
Proving there''s a fine dividing line between "young fashionista" and "elderly bag-lady"...
Anna Wintour is so overrated.
I would actually laugh if I saw that walking down the street.
Looking at the fucking state of this kid I''d say she''s def got learning difficulties.%0D\
I pity kids today if this is what they have to look up to. Sheesh.%0D\
aw, she seems like a cute, smart little kid, lay off. Anyone who thinks that this is anywhere near the depths of how bad precocious middle-schoolers from Oak Park can get is dead wrong, and Rosie isn''t even renting there yet
The sad thing is, lots of idiot "fashionistas" take her seriously.\
Just another example of how the internet has been used for evil.
her writing shows a level of sensitivity and nuance that surpasses anything written thus far in this thread. I you think fashion and the people weho care about it are stupid why do you delight in obsessing over it so much?
Have any of you ever read her blog? She''s actually one of the wittier, more insightful and, until now, more committed fashion bloggers. (Yes, I know the bar is set rather low.)
r15 - people in glass houses...
her blog is surprisingly well-written. yeah, the fashion theatrics are a little much but I give her a pass. at least she isn''t some Bieber-obsessed suburban future-ho.
She''s a terrific writer for someone who just left middle school, and quite frankly, I''d rather have a teenage daughter spending all her time blogging about fashion and putting together esoteric outfits than shopping for sweatpants with words across the ass and giving blowjobs in an effort to cement her popularity.
Should have know criticizing this twit would hit a nerve with DL queens, OP.
I enjoy Tavi. Her writing is interesting and her sense of style is adventurous. She has a sense of history and irony. I give her a lot of credit.
Um, do you think she''s actually writing any of those blog posts, my little darlings?
Why does high fashion (and its enthusiasts) enrage some DLers so much?
r 22 - if you''ve seen her interviewed you know those are her blogs.
Luv huh. She has the makings of a superstar.
they feel threatened r23. Most people here are STRONGLY invested in the notion that there is a right way and a wrong way to think about everything, especially matters of taste and manners and aesthetics. The exclusive world of high fashion exists as a higher authority on those matters, and a reminder to all these glee loving queens who have built thier identities around having the chicest apartment in bumfucke flyoverland, that -in the larger picture- they are just as clueless as the housefrau next door.
I''m sorry, remind me again--what the fuck is a Tavi Gevinson and why does it have a career?
Mark my words...in 10 years she will be the editor-in-chief of Vogue
How do you know she isn''t giving blow jobs to be popular, r19?
it isn''t sex!
R24 She doesn''t seem like a 14 year old at all....
She's staring in a Nicole Holofcener movie and is going to be a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight.
FYI- She's trying to break into acting.
fashionista schmashionista, you sheeple fall for everything and stand for nothing
I usually hate fashionistas AND teenage stars but I have to admit, that girl got it together. She's obviously smart and has a great sense of humour about herself and the industry. In short she reminds me something I was starting to forget between the Britneys and Mileys of this world: some teenagers are actually intelligent and good at what they do.
Just from this snippet from her blog she should be named Honorary Princess of DL:
[quote]If you are the kind of person to encounter human beings in your life, you probably will find yourself needing a bitchface eventually. A bitchface is a beauty essential for any true lady—the kind of accessory that says, “You are a fucking idiot, why am I still talking to you.” "
Actually the whole post is like a Reader's Digest version of Heathers mixed with Jawbreaker. She's a better and funnier writer than most adult bloggers.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
