It is no surprise that super stylish creative director of J.Crew, Jenna Lyons, was named one of Glamour’s women of the year. The 44-year-old inspiration started as a fashion assistant at J. Crew in 1990, worked her way up the old fashioned way and was named creative director of the mega-brand in 2007. Myself and many others know J.Crew would NOT be where they are today without Lyons, it’s just a fact. Not only is she the brains behind the brand, but also their most recognizable model. Her style is uniquely casual yet polished, she has mastered the balance of masculine and feminine pieces while mixing textures effortlessly like no other. Thick rimmed glasses, middle parted hair and red lips were also a signature part of her look long before the trendy hipster crowds claimed it. She is a style icon without a doubt, Glamour is spot on with this one!
