Topic: My So Called Life
Tavi Gevinson, the stylish wunderkind who was attending fashion shows when she was 12, is now 15 and into blogging. Her new project Rookie Mag is a cross between a magazine and a website: Each month will be a new theme, but the content consists of three posts a day. (After all, Tavi does spend most of her time in high school.) We assumed that Tavi’s next venture would follow her stints at Blackbook and working with Target — that is, being about fashion — so imagine our surprise when several of her posts were the kinds of confessionals and pop culture commentary you’d see on our site.

We went through some of our favorite TV shows to track down the most outrageously stylish teen characters. More
An enterprising young woman set out to turn herself into Jared Leto using nothing but makeup and a wig — and you guys? It’s kind of eery. To the extent that we’re like, um, is there actually a Jared Leto? Was I ever really in love with Jordan Catalano, or was it this girl all along?
Jared Leto stopped by the studio of photographer/professional creep Terry Richardson yesterday to pose for some sans-shirt photos. I’ve always kind of reviled Jared and his too-serious band 30 Seconds to Mars as an example of fame gone wrong, but secretly? Some of that actually stems from the time I saw him at a party in L.A. and tried unsuccessfully to hit on him. More
QUICKLINK: When we think about bands covering Lady Gaga‘s “Bad Romance,” Jared Leto‘s band 30 Seconds to Mars doesn’t even come to mind. But here they are, doing just that. (via Buzzfeed)
