Tavi Gevinson Is 'Nylon' Magazine's New It Girl

Tavi Gevinson looks flawless on the cover of the October 2014 issue of Nylon magazine, on newsstands September 24.

Here is what the 18-year-old fashion blogger-turned-actress had to share with the mag:

On being confident in her own success: “I don’t like to speak highly of myself, because I feel like being successful from a young age, it seems bratty for me to go all Kanye. But to be honest, I’m Tavi Gevinson, and I can do whatever I want. And I shall.”

On have a wide range of career prospects at a young age: “It’s something I have definitely had trouble reconciling with myself. Because you have this idea about what it means to be a writer, and what it means to be a performer, whether you’re introverted or extroverted. I have at times felt like they don’t mesh. Then it’s just, like, ‘No, f–k that. Maybe I don’t see a precedent for my life in the outside world, but I can be that precedent.’”

On feeling older than she is: “According to science, adolescence apparently lasts until 25. But for the purpose of letting myself move on, and not living in the past, I feel weird calling myself a teenager now. I feel like a young woman.”
