My new idol... a 17-year-old girl from Oak Park.

Tavi Gevinson, a high school senior, is a writer, magazine editor, actress and singer. She started a  blog devoted to fashion, Style Rookie, in 2008 -- the same year I started this blog -- when she was only eleven. It draws nearly 30,000 readers a day. (That's about a hundred times more than mine. Oy!)

I saw Ms. Gevinson on Chicago Tonight last night and you can watch her interview with Phil Ponce here. (I can't figure out how to upload it or download it or whatever.) She is one of the most impressive (and mature) teenagers I have ever seen.
