Tavi Gevinson Explains the 'Bitchface' to Honorary Teenage Girl Jimmy Fallon

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Tavi Gevinson stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to promote her first book, The Rookie Yearbook, which was compiled with the help of "about 50 contributers, photographers, illustrators." To Fallon's question "Where did you grow up again?" she sharply answers "I am stillll growing up" and everyone had a good hearty laugh. Next , she successfully ushers her host through a favorite feature of the Yearbook: different "bitchfaces" that relay varying degrees of "passive aggression." It's an amazing feat for anyone wearing a Peter Pan color and milkmaid braids. Check it out after the jump.
