Jenna Lyons

president,
J.Crew

Like every other female in the country (including the First Lady), I’m a Jenna Lyons-fanatic. The way she mixes styles, colors, prints and textures is masterful and even better, she’s not afraid to share her secrets. I totally missed the boat on her Oprah appearance but after studying the recap upwards of a dozen time, I’ve been fearlessly pairing denim with sequins, balancing feminine pieces with tougher ones and generally “imperfecting” my outfits.

style director,
Elle Magazine

I love Kate’s classic but punky style and her approach to the whole fashion industry: she doesn’t change who she is to fit the perception of what a “typical fashion editor” should look like. In an industry driven by trends, it’s amazing how she never strays from her style.

If you haven’t read this already, check out this interview from a few years ago. Kate talks about realizing her true personal style and landing her first job as an editor.
