^I don't see anything scandalous about the cover, why would it be so shocking for you too read it in public?

don't care about this girl, but the cover is not bad. I like the butterflies in the background

I think if you put your work out there, you have to be prepared for people to have an opinion on it - whether your work is your face, your style or your words, whatever age you are.

Everyone has to learn how best to deal with feedback, and if the reactions are more than someone can handle, then that's the moment for them to step back until they reach the point where they can get something constructive out of the 'white noise' of comments and reactions. Human nature isn't going to change, but someone's ability to withstand it can grow stronger - and learning how to do that is an essential part of successfully sharing yourself with the world.

Oh ok, well not to everyone. Besides her age, this is just ridiculous. There are so many other talented people in fashion. Designers, models, actresses, and singers. Many of them have their own unique style as well. So why this unknown?!

Some 12 year old on the cover of a magazine looking so sad and vulnerable.
And a grown up reading that, a few eyebrows may be raised.

"Why is he reading a magazine with a child on the cover"

She does. And I can't believe I was the one who gave it to her. But she doesn't use it that much.

What? Guys, come on. Fashion blogging is expanding beyond the borders of their websites, reeling into the fashion world itself. When blogs get this big, there comes a line you cross with exploitation you shouldn't cross, but this is by no means it. Take a look at all of these obscenely popular blogs of girls and women alike in conventional clothing, using their success as a marketing and advertising ploy for large clothing franchises; for example, insinuating you purchase item x so the large corporate honchos will give it to them to wear for free. Tavi has by no means crossed that line. She is a young girl with an opinion on fashion, at a time when fashion is being expanded into a cultural and societal epidemic, with the internet being a major instigator. She dresses the way she feels and embraces her idiosyncrasies. She is a style icon of sorts, merely because she wears things which some of us frankly don't have the balls to wear, regardless of age. She is fierce beyond all measures. So why shouldn't she be on the cover of this magazine? She is an inspiration, no matter her age. If I saw the brilliant Susie Bubble, the only other blogger I consider on terms with Tavi's improvisational outfit skills, on the front of POP I would be saying the exact same thing.

Furthermore, I agree with others have said: she has much more reason to be on this cover than a generic actress, singer or model. There would be much less of a fuss if it was one of them because we are so used to seeing women and men with those labels in the public eye. POP isn't even a widely known magazine. I'd understand if Tavi was a magazine considered more for the general public, but it isn't. Plus, like I said, fashion blogging has blown up to extraordinary heights in the past few years; you're probably going to have to get used to seeing them on the cover of obscure fashion magazines. 'Fashion blogs' are probably most fashion-obsessed individuals source of style inspirations nowadays. I'm sure everyone on these forums reads at least one fashion blog a day, if not every so often.

Lastly, I honestly don't know what most of you have with this blogger in particular, if you think she's pretentious or overrated or whatever, but regardless. She is an inspiration in fashion and you all know it. She deserves the cover.

I agree with Rodarte. I think if it was somebody that was older doing the same thing, the blog wouldn't be this popular.

I can't agree with you, Treefingers, but i see what you mean.
Honestly, i prefer Susie Bubble and Bryan Boy much better than Tavi. But that's my taste...
