Viva's top stories:

Making it in New York: Meet top teen model Holly Rose.

The truth behind fashion shoots: UK Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman explains.

Nominate a teenager you know doing something interesting, creative and exciting and win!


Proving that age shouldn't be a barrier to following your dreams, right now, is 16-year-old singing sensation Lorde. Of course, achieving a number one album or being an international model - like our cover girl 17-year-old Holly Rose Emery (above) - is a rare thing. Following your dreams might be something much smaller or closer to home, and that's A-OK and a reminder to those of us who have left our teens way behind, not to give up on the things we love and still want to do.

I love Viva's annual Teen Issue. I love the amazing young people we meet - their voracious appetites for life and, well, their voracious appetites.
