Jenna Lyons on Her California Upbringing, Skipping Lunch, and French Roadtrips

When two of fashion's preeminent ladies, Garance Doré and Jenna Lyons, sit down, you know it's going to be a good chat.

As part of her Pardon My French series, the blogger chats up the J.Crew creative director, "the most stylish woman I know", before Lyons hits up a movie with her son before the Altuzarra show.

The Parsons grad dishes on growing up in California, taking French roadtrips with her parents (where she stockpiled French publications and memorized them), and being 6 feet tall in 7th grade.

Also? No surprise here: her schedule is so busy she doesn't get lunch and barely gets bathroom breaks.
