Gevinson, now 15 and the founding editor of Rookie Mag, comes across just as preternaturally bright as you might expect a teenaged editor to sound. And with age comes wisdomconsider her analysis of the occasionally sniffy response to her first fashion week outing as evidence of her powers of insight:
She goes on to describe why she founded Rookie, and explains how she accumulated her vast archive of references (which seems to befuddle some people).
The best part of the interview, however, may be its setting. Far beyond her years though its resident may sound, Gevinsons bedroom is filled with all the friend-pic collages, streamers, shoes and magazines that we remember from our teenage-dom. Watch the video here, and get ready to root for Gevinson that much harder.
