Jenna Lyons Now Dating a Woman?

Jenna Lyons, the creative director and president of J.Crew, has left her husband of nine years… for a woman.  Following her messy divorce this past summer with artist Vincent Mazeau, Lyons is now reportedly seeing Courtney Crangi, the sister/business partner of celebrity jeweler Philip Crangi, who runs Giles & Brother.  The oddball fashion force is certainly no stranger to flashy headlines.  Earlier this year, Lyons was heavily criticized (or heavily praised, depending on the source) for an ad featuring her painting the toenails of her young son, Beckett, neon pink (pictured, left).  The ad stated: “Lucky for me I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink.  Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.”  Lyons has revamped the J.Crew label over the last few years by breaking it out of its preppy shell.  The changes have certainly made an impact, as First Lady Michelle Obama is often seen wearing the label, and her glamorous Brooklyn townhouse was featured on Oprah.  Crangi is a mother to three children, and she and Lyons have apparently been friends for years, but the relationship has recently turned romantic.  For such a typically conservative brand, it’s kind of ironic to see all the controversy that’s surrounded it over the past few months…
