Jenna Lyons of J. Crew

If I had a sister, I'd want her name to be Jenna.  Jenna Lyons to be exact.  She'd be that best friend with effortless style, perfectly mussed hair and simply beautiful without any makeup, save for a bright coral lip.  Ahhh, if only.

Yes, I have a girl crush.  And I'm not the only one.  She has been featured multiple times in WWD and this week in an article on Who What Wear.

Earlier this summer she was named President of J. Crew, being promoted from Executive Creative Director.  She joined the company in 1990 as an Assistant Designer and last year was awarded a $1 Million bonus for her part in their success.

Most well-known for Jenna's Picks online and in the catalog, her design aesthetic has maintained the brand during these rough economic times.  Bringing back the concept of core apparel pieces mixed with function and whimsy.  You don't need an entire new wardrobe, just accessorize your classics and update them with a twist for each season.

Jenna's Picks October 2010

With an impeccable easy style, she is that woman who can throw on her boyfriends button down, belted with a wool mini, bright tights and an armful of bangles that at once seems casual yet chic.  She'd be that older (yes, shes 42) sister, always knowing what to do, where to go and what to wear.
