Jenna Lyons on Life after J.Crew and Building Her Empire from the Ground Up

Technically, Jenna Lyons was “influencing” before influencing was even a thing: The signature oversize frames, the hyperpolished hair, the eccentric yet somehow totally approachable style. And then, of course, those fire-engine-red lips that exude power, magnetism, and sophistication.

And then separately, I fell up the stairs twice because I was looking at my phone—I misjudged the steps and scraped my shins—so I started wearing progressive lenses.”
