On the Street….Prince St., New York

Don’t hate her just because she is a 14-year-old intern at Marc Jacobs.

    She looks cute, I would not say that she was fourteen, defiantly very young though.
    There is confidence in her look, tha. Like, she defiantly seems to be a great fit in the fashion industry and if she can have an early start that is even better.
    The picture is beautiful, and bold and to the point.

    I’m not at all jealous, I enjoyed not having adult responsibilities during the summer of my 14th year- jamming out to Britney Spears and experimenting with tacky covergirl makeup. Childhood can never be replaced!

    Great! It’s true… she looks a little bit older than she actually is, but who cares? She definitely has a classy style, and anyway..when you are trying to make it in this industry, you have to look at your best, even if this means a little bit older!..

    Very cute. At such a young age she has began to develop her own effortless style .

    She is darling. Not many can get away with wearing those little “bloomers” shorts.

    Lovely ruffles on her shorts. And what a mature style for someone her age. It must be that internship…

    This girl is everything I love about New York City. This level of effortless style, the fact that a 14 year old in this city can work at Marc Jacobs…

    Ok, for once someone dressed like a 14 year old who actually is 14. Appropriate and chic (aren’t those the same thing, usually?)

    She looks older… and sad.
    And when I was 14 I had more fun things to do than worry about my outfit and deal with an internship.

    August 3, 2011 at 11:40 am

    How is she that cool at 14? I swear i was still obsessed with horses at 14 I’m major jealous she looks so pretty and her bag is gorgeous and her shoes are so cute :D

    amazing, 4 years ago she was a little 10-year old girl, barely old enough to cross the street by herself. it always startles me how much we change during those precious few years from childhood to adolescence.

    August 3, 2011 at 12:03 pm

    Absolutely positively charming. There is not a thing wrong with doing what you love at any age. That being said I am so relieved I did not continue on in macrame, spider-plant propagation and baking for my stoned older brother and friends. If only I’d grown up in New York!

    kind of an odd headline….that said, yes, i do find it very interesting when parents at great companies are able to create great opportunities for their kin. happy for the tweens and their chance to learn responsibility. weighted by the way that power is handed on.

    nonetheless, i hope that she is able to really rock the house while she’s there and make the most of it!

    Why hate her? Really nice outfit although I’m puzzled by the neutral, old-fashioned colour of her shoes. She may be too young for that colour.

  37. Fernando

    August 3, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    A fashionista in the making, a chic one at that. Already her sense of style is there. I’m happy that she is an intern at Marc Jacobs. Albeit some peeps think that she might be missing out on her childhood, however, maybe being an intern at MJ is, in her eyes, equivalent to playing marbles, tag, hide’n seek & hopscotch. Rather, she’ll be playing with textiles, fabrics, accessories, and the like. Plus, she’s beautiful to boot. Good for her. I can’t wait to see her very first collection.

  38. Slayla

    She looks like a chic, sweet girl. I think the reason she looks older is that her eyes are tired. Pro/con.

    Oh, really??? reallly?? fourteen??? FOURTEEEN?? … good lord what has she been eating?, I was n0t that slender at fourteen, in fact I was more like a brick shape (and had that ‘cheeky’ teenager fat), and she looks like she’s older, where is the cheeky teenager fat?? =S
    At 21, I can say I’m slender and pretty and stylish thanks to you Scott and Garance, but she looks amazing at just 14. Amen.

    She looks slightly scared… almost like she’s aware that she’s about to be chased by a crowd of angry women clutching Marc Jacobs accessories as weapons… I’ll be somewhere at the back eating a cake and laughing at the whiskers on my mouse shoes… they’re shoes and they have whiskers, oh Marc, what will you think of next!

  56. Martine

    August 3, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Wow, off to a great start in every way. Kids like her always get far. She isn’t missing out on anything. At 14 its great if she already has ambition and is willing to learn to manage her time and effort. It will only make the rest of her life better. You can tell she is smart and not has a mind of her own already.

  59. Liz

    August 3, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    Lilly’s reaction is priceless!!!! :)

    When I was fourteen, I was eating cheesies, wearing lumpy Daniel Hechter sweat shirts with puffed sleeves (it was the 80s), big scrunchies in my spiral-permed hair, and baggy tapered pants from Le Chateau (fab Canadian store and still in business).

    To my credit, though, I was practising the piano for hours a day and making the honour roll. (Yes, I have a Tiger Mother.)

    August 3, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    The photo is pretty , the thing I like the most is the pink and red handbag, no doubt. The look is quite simple but the ballerinas are too old for her, I would say.
    Intern at marc jacobs?? Doing what? I guess it’s a summer job or whatever, I am not the person to envy anyone actually, I love doing my stuff.

  62. Justine

    August 3, 2011 at 6:40 pm

    I can’t hate on a 14 year old. I thought a 5 dollar t-shirt and 8 dollar pants were the world’s coolest clothes at that age. I was happy and paid for it myself!

  63. Stephanie

    August 3, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    I don’t hate her, but I do love her little bloomers and cute shoes!

  64. Morgan

    August 3, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Well, naturally I hate her because I’m 21 and can’t find any kind of job–who got her that position? Probably the same person who’s buying her clothes for her…

    That said, having nice clothes is completely different from wearing them properly, so kudos to her for having actual STYLE rather than being trendy at such a ripe age.

  65. all-in-the-silhouette

    Fantastic sense of style at such a young age. I bet we will be hearing about her down the road.

    14?!? If she continues in fashion, she’s gonna buuurned out by the time she’s 25. Believe me, I’m in it. I know.

    Go play!!! Fashion will be here for you when you’re older…!

    I don’t hate her but I am weary of young children being treated like adults. No 14 year old needs an internship anywhere! Personally I don’t think 14 year olds should be wearing expensive Marc Jacobs either.
    Lately very young girls like Elle Fanning (age 13) are being featured in magazines wearing a lot of makeup and hundreds of dollars worth of designer clothing.
    Sorry, it’s just wrong to me.

    kudos to her for the fabulous internship and kudos to her for pulling off the hard-to-flatter bloomers shorts.

    this girl looks just like my 21-year-old daughter who also appears to be only 14. AND she’s wearing the bloomers said daughter has been hunting for ever since she saw them at TARGET three years ago. the bloomers that inspired the name of her blog: http://carespantaloons.blogspot.com/2010/08/sketchy-black-red-and-vandalized.html

    cheers!

    Great style, it’s good she started so early to be passionate in something and to show her talent…but I find ridicolous a 14 y o girl doing such a kind of intership, it’s not just a summer job like picking the fruit at a grandmom farm, it’s real business, it’s something too serious, youth never comes back again…

  79. Rubina

    August 4, 2011 at 5:21 am

    Love those shorts ! They are such a fine line between looking tacky and looking cute ! She definately carries the cute look …

    Well done for the new site !! But to be honest, I miss the old one as well ;-) …

    Oh, I don’t hate her! I’m just very, very jealous (and kind of want to be her best friend so she can get me an internship there)! What a great opportunity! Why didn’t I have an internship at Marc Jacobs at age 14?!? Ah… that’s right, I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin.

    I love how her style has a great balance of sophistication and young, feminine elements, like the purse, watch and ruffles at the bottom of her shorts.

    What a beauty – she looks great. Love the contrast of the black and white, especially the shirt tails hanging out, offset with a lovely pink handbag.

    August 5, 2011 at 8:39 am

    The 4 photos I’ve just looked at feature black and white clothes. Perhaps it’s the undecided weather but I don’t see any of the brights around that are all over the weekly fashion magazines. Perhaps it’s always more stylish to follow the fashions less and stick to the classics. Love the bag x

  94. Tess

    August 5, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    sooo jealous! great for her though! 14, well dressed (love the purse!) , and interning at marc jacobs. i can only hope to work somewhere like that in 20 years! i rally wish i had an amazing internship like that. lucky girl!

    August 5, 2011 at 6:02 pm

    Ohhh, c’mon… Srsly, you do think there is anything cool about 14 years old acting like 20? It’s sad. Internship? Please, sounds like the Industrial Revolution and kids working since they were ten. She will have her whole adult life for wearing Marc Jacobs and having internships and work. Now she should wear Snoopy H&M t-shirt, read Twilight, and have a holiday crush on some boy. And be careless.

  98. Jon

    August 5, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    Um, may I point out that interns in the US fashion industry generally don’t get paid? If this were a pic of an Indian child working for free in that country’s fashion industry there’d be cries of slave labour.

  100. Illingsworth Colon

    August 5, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    If she’s doing the internship because she really has a passion for fashion and took the initiative to “make it happen”, then I am very happy for her

    However,

    If she would rather be out at the mall, hanging with her friends, then I feel sorry for her. I tend to believe that at 14 yrs old, she got the internship through some type of family ‘connection’, in which case—She’ll only be 14 once, she’s got 7 or 8 more years to take on the responsibilities of an internship.

    August 6, 2011 at 12:46 am

    When I as 14, Marc Jacobs was in “dream list”, not in my wardrobe. I don’t hate her, she is too pretty for, I’m just jealous :)

  103. Martine

    August 6, 2011 at 4:05 am

    LOL! If she was working part time taking care of animals at the local veterinarian office everyone would be writing how wonderful that was, and not saying how she should be at a mall with her friends. Such hypocrisy. In fact when I was 14 I worked after school as a landscaper’s assistant. My sister worked after school at a body shop (she loved it, and now details cars and bikes for good money) at 13. It still gives you PLENTY of time to shop, talk on the phone to friends, and get your homework done. If you have kids, then you know that NO ONE is as fashion conscious as a typical 14 yr old girl. Kids that age care more about their clothing then most adults. My 12yr old niece actually cried because she went to a new school not knowing how they dressed there and the VERY mean comments that landed on her. So don’t worry about this forcing her to be fashionable too soon.

    I’m fifteen and this is such an awesome picture. I am EXTREMELY jealous haha but I love that you posted a picture of a girl close to my age. Thank you.

    Such a shame she already dyes her hair – detracts from her otherwise fresh youth…

    I love her (and hate her just a little bit). The shorts, the peter pan collar, the bright pink bag…She’s adorable!

    I’m sure it’s already been said but her Ferragamo’s are adorable. And I’m sorry, but I kind of hate her… :)

    I saw her in the subway the other day with another friend of hers (about her age) Boy, does she catch your eye! It’s an odd combination, the level of sophistication (effortless chic) in her age. It wasn’t until half min. later did I realize that she was a teenage girl.
