What's New, What's Hot: Tavi Gevinson Lands a Movie Role, Pink Scores a CoverGirl Contract, Solange for Madewell

Tavi

If you thought 16-year old Tavi Gevinson was going to stop at blogger-cum-online magazine editor/Fashion Week fixture you were wrong -- the fashion prodigy just signed with Hollywood agency UTA and has already landed a role in writer-director Nicole Holofcener's yet-to-be-titled film. The movie is about an only child (Gevinson) who is basically ignored by her parents and forced to grow up a little faster than her peers. Although her real parents are anything but neglectful (her dad has even accompanied her to fashion shows), we can't help but think Gevinson might be able to relate to growing up faster than other kids her age. She has, after all, launched a webzine, been profiled in The New York Times, and is considered muse to a number of fashion designers.

Beauty brand CoverGirl announced last week that singer Pink is joining the ranks of fellow celebrities Queen Latifah, Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore, and Sofia Vergara as the new face of their brand.  "Pink is a powerful and provocative role model, who has always been an advocate of individualism and making no apologies for who you are,"  says CoverGirl Vice President and GM Esi Eggleston Bracey on their decision to add the "So What" singer to their roster, adding, "We love the energy and confidence that she radiates, and the fact that inside and out she’s as cool as she looks. She’s an awesome addition to our CoverGirl family." Look for Pink in CoverGirl ads this fall.

Solange

Solange Knowles may be the younger sister of megastar Beyonce, but the Brooklyn-based DJ and singer is certainly holding her own when it comes to stardom. Already the face of beauty brands Rimmel London and Carol's Daughter, Knowles has just signed on as the face of contemporary store Madewell, her first major clothing campaign. The 26-year old will be featured in the store's Fall 2012 campaign, called "Mix Well. Madewell," a title that is apropos of the star's DJ skills, as well as the store's new fall pieces, which can be mixed and matched to create custom looks. Of their decision to include Knowles in their fall campaign, the company "Solange’s great style mix-matched perfectly with Madewell’s aesthetic."
