Tavi Gevinson Returns to the Stage as a Manson Girl in Assassins

This fall a new off-Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s 1990 musical Assassins arrives at Classic Stage Company in New York, dramatizing the stories of nine people who attempted to assassinate sitting U.S. presidents (successfully or not) throughout history. A latish—and particularly dark—entry to Sondheim’s oeuvre, Assassins offers an unsettling group portrait of American disillusionment and the lengths to which some will go to be remembered—or merely seen, with John Wilkes Booth’s fatal shooting of Abraham Lincoln in 1865 offering a first, aspirational example for assassins to follow.

Tavi Gevinson: The Internet's BFF Is Nowhere Near Done

Tavi Gevinson was 14 when she sat front row at the Dior Couture 2010 show in Paris. She’d been a familiar face on the fashion scene ever since Style Rookie, the blog she started when she was 11, caught the attention of designers and editors. It had led to her being flown around the world to review shows and interview major names for magazines, TV and websites. Her petite size (she was, as she puts it, ‘an actual child’) and larger-than-life personal style, coupled with an impressive understanding of cultural context and sartorial milieu was met with a mix of curiosity, affection and over-the-top reverence. For the shows that year, Tavi had dyed her hair blue but it faded to grey. In Paris, Karl Lagerfeld told her he liked it. ‘Normally, children – young people – don’t have this hair colour,’ he reportedly said. ‘It’s great to have it.’

Tavi Gevinson Talks Gossip Girl Reboot, Her Former Fashion Blog, And Living A Multi-Hyphenate Life

Tavi Gevinson has always been the center of attention—and not in a conceited way. Instead, she’s been catching the eyes of many since her career took off at the ripe age of 12, when she launched personal fashion blog Style Rookie. Just three years after its creation, the youth switched paths to launch Rookie, an online magazine for teenage girls. After spending the last few years as a writer and editor for the now-inactive magazine, Gevinson has added actress, cover star, published author, podcast host, and runway front-row-sitter to her arsenal of roles. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the 25-year-old Gossip Girl reboot sat down with journalist Kenzie Bryant to share it all.
