Tavi Gevinson: Don’t second-guess yourself

Tavi Gevinson says her style epiphany came in high school, when she learned never to “second-guess her wardrobe choices”.

The 19-year-old is a former blogger who has now found success as an actress and model.

And when it comes to style, the Enough Said star realised in high school never to apologise for being different.

"I learned in high school that it felt worse to second-guess my wardrobe choices than it did to be made fun of,” she told “When I’d change my outfit to something more 'normal,' I’d come home to the stuff I’d really wanted to wear and think, I should have worn that!"

Tavi is quickly making a name for herself as one to watch in the beauty industry. But she looks to another famous name for inspiration.

“Willow Smith is amazingly confident in her work and makes me feel like I can do anything,” she added.

The teenager recently signed a deal for Clinique 3 Step Skincare. And when it comes to her own beauty motto, Tavi loves setting the pace herself.

“When I was younger, I felt like my features were sort of irrelevant,” she said. “But now I see beauty as a tool that helps you become the person you want to be."

Tavi always stuns in her beauty shots. However, she likes taking the time to explore her masculine side whenever possible.

Asked what her favourite hairstyle is, Tavi replied: “Slicking it back like David Bowie from his Low album era makes me feel like I’m not susceptible to dumb sh*t."
