Tavi for Cole Haan
Rookie Blogger and digital titan, Tavi Gevinson, has always been a cutie pie, but her recent images for the new Cole Haan campaign are well, how should we say, sophisticated! The campaign entitled, “Talented and Gifted”, features other creative minds such as the 7th grade heavy metal band, Unlocking the Truth who The Inside Source wrote about this past July, and owner of the Korilla BBQ truck, Edward Song, among others.

Gloria Steinem & Tavi Gevinson
At the premiere for last nights MAKERS, a digital platform sharing stories of incredible women of empowerment, I found myself a few feet from both the godmother of feminism, Gloria Steinem, and the newest blood on the block, 15 year old blogger Tavi Gevinson. Tavi was raised on a strong diet of Sassy and Jane Magazines, Riottt Girl zine’s, and above all Gloria Steinem. First I greeted Tavi who stood mouth agape near her literary idol saying “she is amazing”. Then Tavi reached to her necklace and leaned into me quietly confessing… [MORE] “Look, I actually wore this by accident tonight” pointing to her Gloria neck chain. “I hope I don’t seem like a stalker” she said in the most humble manner. Little did she know Gloria fondly remembered speaking with her. I found myself equally sensitive to the magic aura of the Ms magazine founder, so I was compelled to ask her about the new generations challenges of female empowerment. In other words, how does a young woman today keep her eye on the ball, versus a woman in the 70’s. “They know what is unfair in their lives. We are here to support. We are not here to tell them what to do”, Gloria told The Inside Source. “Remember when you are a little kid, and you say it’s not fair, you are not the boss of me… you now that instinct?” asks the legend. She raises her fist lovingly and says “hang on to that”.

Insta-Peep-o-Gram: Tavi Breaks Down Stevie Nicks
Who said the new generation was lazy? Here’s a mental exercise from young blogger Tavi Gevinson who has taken on the meticulous task of dissecting lyrics. “Diagramming Stevie Nicks lyrics is hard work” writes the 16 year old on her Instagram, “only 2 pages of notes. Lots of hearts, animals, types of light, and dreams.”
