Julia Frakes has made a huge impact in the fashion world. Shockingly eloquent and amazing impulses with fashion taste... She landed a job as a fashion editor at PAPER magazine. Incredible. I have adored her ever since Liza introduced me to her blog a while back. She is insanely thin, but whatever... She'll work it out in her own time. For now, I am a fan and a supporter of her career because I think she's such a little talent.
Tavi Gevinson, 13, started her fashion blog at age 11. Her parents weren't totally aware of what she was doing on her computer all the time until she went to them and asked for permission to be in the New York Times as a featured blogger. What?!? Craziness. She was the Rodarte sisters inspiration for their Target line, has been on the cover of Pop magazine, is featured in Elle regularly, and is on a first name basis with several designers (including Alexander Wang). While she is making more of a bang than Julia, I believe that is also due to her incredibly young age.
Overall opinion of who has better taste and choices on a daily basis... Julia hands down. She is going to be a beast in the fashion industry. I can't wait to see what she does. Tavi freaks me out... She is too young to be dressing like that and she looks like a female Benjamin Button. I am not living for it.
Go Julia! We love you!
Julia at NYC Fashion Week. Killer Wang glasses and liking the new blonde bob.
