Jenna Lyons’ Favorite Instagram Accounts Are Not What You’d Expect
J.Crew’s Creative Director is our muse for many things in life. Whether we’re looking for some #girlboss career advice or trying to figure out the perfect wedding guest outfit we often find ourselves thinking, “WWJLD” (AKA what would Jenna Lyons do). Recently the Coveteur went inside Jenna’s office and got the scoop on everything from her best bit of career advice to what Instagram accounts she follows. And while you might expect her to be spying on the competition and following all her fashionable friends, Jenna’s favorite accounts are actually super unexpected. Scroll on down to read a little about the four she mentioned in her recent interview.
1. Girly Exercises: This account seems a little bit of a peculiar pick since Jenna once told the NY Times her fitness regime consists mostly of lifting really heavy sequins during the day and walking in five-inch heels regularly, but it’s a cool account nevertheless. Jenna tells the Coveteur, “There is this one girl on Girly Exercises that I totally love. She does exercises with her kids and it’s genius—it’s so good, I mean, I can’t get enough. I watch it all the time.” (Photo via @girlyexercises)
2. Black Jaguar White Tiger: This heartwarming Insta account belongs to a foundation that’s working to rescue big cats from sad circumstances and provide them with the best lifestyle available. You can expect to find lots of adorable videos of fluffy cubs and lion families. (Photo via @blackjaguarwhitetiger)
3. The Unskilled Worker: This account belongs to an anonymous London-based illustrator who creates beautiful, albeit slightly haunting images. Her (or his) work has been featured in a show curated by the legendary English photographer, Nick Knight that paid homage to a selection of Alexander McQueen’s most pivotal designs. Jenna says, “I love her, she’s an artist and she does these really cool paintings. I really love them, there’s something really quite beautiful about them.” (Photo via @unskilledworker)
4. Blaire Z: Blair Breitenstein a fashion illustrator who has worked with everyone from Coach to Calvin Klein. Blaire’s loose watercolor and messy smudged lines offer up a cool, stark contrast to the highly curated world of fashion. Okay. This one is a little more expected we guess… (Photo via @blairz)
