Last year I did an homage to Tavi Gevinson, the now 15 year old blogger from Oak Park, Illinois, who goes to high school, dresses up like many girls, and hangs out with Anna Wintour at fashion shows. I had put together this outfit, wondering what I might say about it but realizing that it might be something she would wear when she got a little older.
As a young adult (in my imagination), Tavi has contacts, an older face, and a more sophisticated style (not so much piled up) in my mind but lots of Tavi still shows through. First the dress from Sonatta Morales, a vintage beauty with horizontal stripes. Sonatta is one of SL’s premier vintage gown makers, and this stunner is typical of her quality. The bodice is exquisitely rendered from the gathered top to the satin strips along the decollatage to the buttons on the sleeves. It’s this kind of couture detail that would appeal to a young lady like Tavi.
What makes this look so Tavi is this skin from Gala Phoenix, a new release in her line called “The Visitor,” which has varying ranges of makeup, from fantastic to simply ethereal. I loved the yellowy green lips and eye makeup in this skin. However, she includes eyebrows and lip options so green lips could go to pink with one simple addition. And because she includes eyebrows, you can choose a more “alien” eyebrowless look or tattoo on one of three color options.
