Today, BlackBook magazine released behind-the-scenes footage from Tavi’s first professional styling gig – an editorial shoot with IMG model and Real Housewives of New Jersey kid Christine Staub, appropriately titled Nobody’s Daughter.
The editorial would be judged as any other. After all, despite their age – Tavi is fourteen and Christine is sixteen – they are both being paid to work on a legitimate high fashion shoot, so why not pit them against the pre-existing industry standards? Much to my surprise, the two were a great combination. The video shows Tavi pick clothes from racks of her favourite designers and run into shots to fix a stray fringe, just like any good professional stylist would. As a fellow stylist who essentially looks like a pre-teen, I definitely have a soft spot.
