What Makes Jenna Lyons Tick? 24 Hours In The Life Of J. Crew’s Star Creative Director

When you're Jenna Lyons, you don't have time to mess around. You're too busy singlehandedly revolutionizing sequins, re-imagining color-blocking, and rethinking preppy to just let the day flow by lazily. We're pretty sure that for a woman as influential and powerful as she is, every moment has its place. And, our suspicions were confirmed in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar, in which Lyons breezes through a day in the life, letting us in on the habits of one of fashion's most successful, best-loved people.
For example, her drug of choice is the snooze button, which she employs until about 7:35 AM. Her son picks out her shoes, often a pair of studded Louboutin loafers. She has about 18 meetings a day, and engages in some "voracious" online shopping and "one too many cocktails" between the hours of 9:30 and 11:00 PM. And this is the best part: She showers before getting into bed in one of her "like, 800" J. Crew t-shirts and Kiki de Montparnasse shorts, because "being clean and getting into a beautiful bed is just the best thing in the world." Girl, preach. Click on over to Harper's Bazaar for a full and incredibly detailed round up of 24 hours in the life of the woman responsible for your J. Crew addiction.
