This one, she has potential

Fashionista and snarkmeister Tavi, twelve, explains how she got to where she is:

The three things that got me interested in fashion are all pretty much the anti-fashion. And I don’t mean in the cool Comme des Garçons way. Seventeen magazine, America’s Next Top Model, and the nu rave trend (aka hipster culture and neon colors) were what sort of kickstarted my curiosity in editorial and runway. I know none of these really have anything to do with fashion — Seventeen is mainly composed of a bunch of BS about “a pop of color!”, ANTM is pretty much centered around Tyra and using the word “fierce”, and big-lettered, neon, Henry Holland knock-off tees that say things about Going Green and Peace and Partying worn by people who don’t know they’re wearing a knock-off speaks for itself.

Aside: Who was it who said, “If Booth Tarkington had written Seventeen today, he’d have had to call it Twelve”? I’m thinking Meredith Willson for some reason.
