J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons has reportedly divorced her husband and taken up with another woman. Robin Givhan writes about why we obsess over such revelations here. Lyons was pictured in September at New York's Lincoln Center, where her company gave its very first presentation at Fashion Week. Lyons gushed to one reporter that she thinks “fashion week is like going to prom” and reportedly whispered to her publicist, “Oh, my God, I think I’m going to pass out” when a pregnant Beyoncé arrived at the event.

Lyons’s split from her husband has become the subject of media speculation, as rumors abound about whether she is romantically involved with fellow female fashion-industry maven Courtney Crangi. Crangi, pictured here with Lyons at a party this summer, is jewelry designer Philip Crangi’s sister and business partner.

Beckett Mazeau mugs for the camera while in his mother’s arms at a tree-lighting ceremony at New York's Rockefeller Center in 2008. The two sparked a controversy this spring when a J.Crew catalog featured a picture of Lyons painting her smiling 5-year-old son's toes hot pink.

Condé Nast’s short-lived Domino magazine made Lyons an object of envy in October 2008 when it plastered the J.Crew exec on its cover and took readers on a tour of her sprawling Brooklyn brownstone.

The now-infamous page in J.Crew’s April 2011 catalog. Social conservatives such as Fox News’ Dr. Keith Ablow and the Media Research Center’s Erin Brown fueled the pink-nail-polish controversy by penning op-eds deriding the spread as promoting transgender culture and gender-identity confusion. Ablow has recently taken his argument a step further, using the new rumors about Lyons’s alleged relationship with Crangi to justify his argument that, by including the picture of Beckett with pink toenails in her company’s catalog, she was in fact projecting her own “discomfort with masculinity” onto J.Crew shoppers nationwide.

Lyons was joined by fellow committee members Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Wintour, and Steven Kolb, among others, at last year’s Fashion Fund award ceremony, put on annually by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue.

In 2009, Lyons welcomed Liya Kebede into her company with two deals. First, the Ethiopian model’s image would dominate a J.Crew catalog, and then the store would sell pieces from Kebede’s children’s line, Lemlem.

Always a staple at major fashion events, Lyons looked serene in lime green at this year’s Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, where Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez took home the title of Womenswear Designer of the Year, and Lady Gaga was named a Fashion Icon.
