Jenna landed her first job at J.Crew when she was only 21 and has been flying up the ladder ever since. Today, she oversees a creative force of more than 100 designers and every aspect of the J.Crew kingdom. "I love going to work every day. I never sit on the edge of my bed and think, 'Oh, I don't want to do this today,'" Jenna says.
One of the most exciting moments of Jenna's career was seeing Michelle Obama appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in head-to-toe J.Crew. "The trailer came up and she comes up on the screen, and I could barely breathe."
Jenna lives by a few fashion rules she says everyone could benefit from following.
- Make a statement with jewelry.
- Balance feminine pieces with tomboy accents, like a military blazer.
- Wear opposites. If you're wearing something tailored, sprinkle in some sequins.
- Mix textures—pair tweed with silk, for example.
