Welch is 10 years old.In December, Jenna discussed the vitriol being spewed at Tavi Gevinson, the 13-year-old wunderkind behind fashion blog Style Rookie, by older members of the fashion community. Gevinson is viewed by some as just a novelty, good for a kid (Oscar Wilde once wrote: "the public is wonderfully tolerant.
