Tavi Gevinson, fashion's little darling and blogger practically since birth, will star in a Broadway play this summer: This Is Our Youth by Kenneth Lonergan, which was first produced in the mid-90s—one of Tavi's favorite decades. The synopsis, via Playbill:

"Set in New York in 1982, This Is Our Youth follows forty-eight hours in the lives of three very lost young souls. Warren (to be played by Michael Cera), a dejected nineteen year old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis (Kieran Culkin), his charismatic drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and Jessica (Tavi Gevinson), the anxiously insightful young woman who Warren yearns for."
