Teen blogger’s gig on Fashion Television a one-time thing
While teen blogging sensation and fashion week darling Tavi Gevinson may have irked journalists by sitting in the front row of the Dior haute couture show, the producers at Fashion Television saw fit to harness her popularity by giving her a reporting gig during New York fashion week while Jeanne Beker covers the Olympics.
In the Star today, Beker assures us that it’s a one-time job, adding, “She is the it girl of cyber fashion.” (In other words, ratings, darling.) And no, Beker’s not losing sleep wondering whether she’ll be upstaged by the whipper-snapper. “If I was worried about a 13-year-old, I would have gotten out of this business a long time ago.” And how.
