Next up for blogger Tavi Gevinson? Taking Broadway! Rookie’s founder and editor-in-chief has proven her chops as a writer (she wrote the Miley Cyrus cover story for Elle’s May issue) and now will star in the revival of Kenneth Lonergan’s play This Is Our Youth alongside Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin as Jessica an “anxiously insightful” fashion student. The play will only run 20 weeks on Broadway, from September through January 2014. What can’t this girl do?! [Fashionista]

Days after Yahoo announced it would shut down it’s women-centric site, Shine, Bobbi Brown was named Yahoo’s beauty editor-in-chief, with a new page expected to roll out in June that will include videos, advice ,and product recs—but don’t think Brown will have an agenda. “This is not going to be the Bobbi Brown Cosmetics channel,” she told Women’s Wear Daily. “I am approaching this as a journalist. I’ve appeared on Good Morning America and the Today show for the last 15 years and I’ve never taken the opportunity to just push my own brand. This will be a brand-agnostic site.” Shine on, Yahoo.

We are going to talk to them, helping with the product and brand selection. They will tell us what they want and help us with our buying.” They sure will. [Glamour]

Dior is coming to Tribeca Film Festival by way of Raf Simons’ 89-minute documentary premiering April 17th. Titled Dior and I, the film will chronicle the creative process as the new designer created his Dior debut in just two months. As you can imagine, this made Simons nervous. “Indeed, I was not too keen on it actually, if you want to know the truth,” he said. “You know, it’s scary and it would be a lot for people who are not actors because it has nothing to do with acting.” [Women’s Wear Daily]
