So, apparently Frisky office style icon Jenna Lyons is getting divorced from hubby Vincent Mazeau, after 10 years of marriage — and is rumored to be in a relationship with a woman. Says the rumor mill, the woman Jenna’s in love with is apparently also in the fashion biz, though we’re not sure who it is. Either way, that lady’s pretty lucky — think of the access she now has to Jenna’s sure-to-be-incredible closet! [Page Six]
If the rumors are true, Jenna is not alone in discovering she has a love jones for the ladies after having relationships with me. Here are seven other famous women who were a little late to the Isle of Lesbos.
On yesterday’s show, Oprah learned about an assortment of dream jobs, including Jenna Lyon‘s position as J. Crew’s creative director. Not only does Jenna have an amazing career, but everything about her life is seemingly perfect, too. She calls a gorgeous Brooklyn townhouse home (bedroom-sized closet, of course), has a handsome husband and a cute kid, gets all the J. Crew clothes she wants, and somehow manages to get home by 6:30 p.m. every evening. Watch a day in her life above, but be prepared to feel some serious pangs of jealousy. [Oprah] Keep reading »
We’ve been a little bummed that we’re not obsessive enough to stay up all night in order to score pieces from Target’s recent designer collaborations, but J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons puts things in perspective. In an interview with Style.com, Jenna shared how she feels about designers doing “affordable” lines for mass retailers:
“What I appreciate about it is someone like Rodarte or Proenza Schouler maybe gets more mindshare from people who might not have known who they are. But I think it’s a little flash-in-the-pan, and the quality, a lot of times, is really not great. That, to me, is for the young little fashion girl who’s obsessed with Proenza and Rodarte and who can’t afford it. For someone who just wants to look good on a day-to-day basis, it’s not a strategy for how to dress.”
She makes a good point. Instead of racing to pick up pieces when Target, H&M, and other retailers join forces with high-end designers, we should focus on building a wardrobe without regard for whose name is on the tag. From now on, when the dress we’d been hoping to score sells out before we can snag one, we’ll just tell ourselves we aren’t looking for “flash in the pan” clothes. We want to develop our own style by purchasing quality items we love, rather than trying to pick up something that’s hot today but might not make it through one laundry cycle.
