A SLU OG since her ’12 Closet, Tallulah’s spirit is as unlocked and gutsy as they come, so we couldn’t wait to take it another step deeper and take it all off, right down to her core. In oversized denim everything, to-die-for Gucci loafers, and a DIY dye-job that we’re obsessed with, Tallulah let it all hang beautifully out. She was so brave to let it rip about her journey with body dysmorphia, and its paralyzing, destructive mindsets, due to a teenage lifetime of tabloid bullying that is so despicable, we can’t imagine how these people sleep at night. But it’s Tallulah who’s having the last laugh, finally finding herself closer to the future her, who was always in her head but had been far away from her reality. No longer interested in needing to be the life of the party, and feeling pretty in shirts buttoned up to her chin, Tallulah is happily focused on “letting the world flow from the fingertips” — that it to say, writing on her blog, the Clothing Coven, encouraging girls to replace harmfully competing over who’s skinnier with girl-crushes and mutual inspiration. We’re totally down with her directive to stop looking in the mirror at the outside and to trust that feeling like a princess everyday is a state of mind that comes from within. As Tallulah herself reveals, “For the first time, I like myself on the inside.”
