Flashback: Jenna Lyons Gives Tips On Dressing For Gay Weddings
October 27, 2011
After the gay marriage bill passed in New York, J.Crew President Jenna Lyons was quoted in several places on the dress code for gay weddings — and how her own brand had plans to do a white suit for lesbian brides. That might have been a bit of a foreshadow; Jenna has allegedly left her husband for jewelry CEO Courtney Crangi (pictured).
Let’s take a closer look at how Jenna suggested gay brides and grooms dress for their big day… perhaps she’ll be taking her own advice soon?
A flashback: the Times reported: “J. Crew has outfitted many lesbian couples at its Madison Avenue wedding shop, said Jenna Lyons, the company’s president and creative director. Based on feedback, she said, there was a need for simpler dresses, as a way for a woman to differentiate herself if her partner decides to go the princess bride route. Ms. Lyons is also thinking of offering a white pantsuit. “It’s not necessarily for a lesbian,” she said. No, but the company now has a greater incentive to add the style.”
