Tavi Gevinson Heads to Broadway; ‘Vogue's’ Kimye Cover May Break Sales Records

And Uber entices the fashion set with new courier service.

Tavi Gevinson Heads to Broadway: At 17-years-old, Tavi Gevinson has already founded popular online magazine, Rookie, authored multiple books and articles, and acted alongside Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini in the 2013 film Enough Said. Now, the fashion wunderkind is heading to Broadway in the revival of Kenneth Lonergan’s 1996 play, “This Is Our Youth.” The play, which revolves around Manhattan’s elite in the eighties, will open in Chicago before heading to New York City in mid-August. Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin have also signed on as cast members. [Fashionista]

Vogue's Kimye Cover May Break Sales Records: Despite the criticism, Anna Wintour clearly knew what she was doing. The highly-publicized (and scrutinized) Vogue cover featuring Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is flying off shelves. Predicted to sell 300,000-400,000 copies, the magazine's April issue is well on the way to outselling the publication's two best sellers of 2013—Beyoncé (355,397) and Michelle Obama (293,748).

Uber Entices Fashion Set With Courier Service: Expanding its services from transporting people—via taxi, SUV, or helicopter—the popular car service, which has been known to also deliver cuddling kittens and ice cream, has introduced Uber Rush, a courier service in Manhattan. “No one was getting it quite right on the messenger service piece, and we were seeing people use Uber cars to move things,” Josh Mohrer, the company's New York general manager told Bloomberg. Ranging from $15-$30, the prices of Uber Rush are comparable, if not better, to those of other currently available courier services in Manhattan. [Bloomberg]
