Jenna Lyons, creative director and president of J.Crew, has been lauded by the fashion world -- and Michelle Obama -- for rebranding the retail chain out of its rut and making it cooler, groovier and more colorful. Her distinctive personal style has made her a style icon. Her messy personal life has made her a gossip target: earlier this week, Page Six reported Lyons had left her husband for another woman. Today the column unmasks the Other Woman as Courtney Crangi, the high-powered business brains behind her brother Philip Crangi's jewelry brand.
Crangi, 38, is a mother of three; Lyons, 43, is currently embroiled in a bitter divorce from artist-husband, Vincent Mazeau, with whom she has a 5-year-old son, Beckett (see: Toemageddon.) Lyons and Mazeau -- whose idyllic Brooklyn brownstone was frequently photographed in fashion and home magazines -- reportedly split last summer.
"After the breakup, Jenna fell in love with Courtney, whom she had been friends with for some time," a source tells Page Six. "They've known each other for years through the fashion business. Courtney is an attractive blonde who balances working hard with her family."
