TWO OF A KIND: PASSIONATE PROFESSIONALS

To see Jenna Lyons and Courtney Crangi interact is akin to watching two teenagers in love. During their first public photo shoot together they are giddy with knowing smiles and stolen kisses. And they’ve certainly earned their right to be happy. The New York Times recently anointed Lyons—who serves as the president of J.Crew, where she has worked for the past 22 years—as “the woman who dresses America,” and that type of press does not come without a fair amount of public fixation. The media was particularly intense last year, when she extracted herself from a marriage in order to live her life with Crangi. But having survived the storm, the statuesque superexec is now standing taller than ever. “For me the best thing is knowing that someone really has your back,” she says of her rock solid relationship. “Like no matter what happens she has my best interests at heart. I think there are a few moments in life where that actually happens, and that feels, like, completely true and real.” Courtney, who wears many hats in her role as business partner of her brother Philip Crangi’s hipster-chic jewelry line, returns the sentiment: “I think the most amazing about Jenna, although there are many amazing things about her, is really her grace under pressure,” she says. “She’s just incredibly gracious at all times.”
