She’s the creative director for popular clothing brand J.Crew and on Wednesday Jenna Lyons encapsulated everything the brand stands for when she paraded her own unique style.

The 44-year-old president of the American retailer took centrestage in her signature thick-rimmed glasses and mix-and-match preppy attire that has helped skyrocket the brand to international fashion success.

She held her own beside towering Victoria Secrets beauty Karlie Kloss at a New York bash celebrating the brand’s new travel suit on Wednesday.

Jenna rocked a simple white T-Shirt and loose ankle swingers which she teamed with a pair of scarlet suede heels and paraded a customary parted hairstyle.

Meanwhile, six-foot tall Kylie, 21, stunned in a stripy dress and cream coat which she teamed with shiny strappy heels.

The glittering party saw filmmaker Casey Neistat’s short commercial showcasing the new travel suit for J.Crew’s Ludlow collection.

The award-winning filmmaker created a first person piece called ‘Travel With Style,’ an original video that highlights how the Ludlow Traveler breaks the mould of the typical buttoned-up look.

Inspired by his adventures, Casey is seen boarding nine flights to eight cities and portrays what travelling in style means to him whilst showcasing the crease-resistant suit.

From Ixtapa to Big Bear, snowboarding to surfing, Casey wears the specially woven, three-ply Italian wool suit throughout his journeys covering 11,000 miles.

The commercial’s manly chunky knit and plaid outfits leave viewers with a warm and fuzzy holiday feeling.

J Crew, which is worn often by Michelle Obama and her daughters, has about 450 stores throughout the U.S. and is run by industry executive Mickey Drexler.

Jenna has been creative director since 2008 and is often credited with revamping the retailer, which reported about $2.4billion in annual sales last year.

Liked Jenna on the TV show Girls as Hannah’s boss. “I don’t have time to deal with this right now, can you just e-mail me and let me know if you’re still working here or not.” LOL!

I loved J Crew about 15 years ago. They have changed and become incredibly overpriced…even for the littlest thing.

also karlie kloss must be extremely tall, because jenna is at least 6 ft herself.

I ordered something from J Crew years ago. Within a few weeks I started getting bombarded with mailers from other retailers. J. crew sells your info to anyone with a dollar. Just say “NO”!! If you go into one of their stores pay with cash and don’t give them any personal info. Despicable way to prop up the bottom line, selling out your customers.

This woman is helping to run JCrew straight into the ground. They need new direction in their merchandising department because they have lost touch with their customer base, which is middle class. JCrew was the place where you could buy generally preppy, tasteful work appropriate clothes with a fun twist that could be worn anywhere. Now it’s full of drab merchandise, low quality paper thin materials, higher price points, and ridiculous items that the everywoman will not buy like $400 beaded pumps and gold vans sneakers (?!?).

Jenna Lyons holds her own with the models in MOM JEANS? I don’t think so. She’s so overrated.
