It’s no secret that we—along with the entire fashion industry at large—are hopelessly obsessed with the print-mixing, glass-ceiling-shattering style phenom that is Jenna Lyons. The J.Crew prez appears in a new footwear-focused video for the brand entitled "Shiny Ponies"—which, as it happens, is her little nickname for a truly traffic-stopping pair of shoes (lesser styles are hilariously termed "ugly dollies").
In the clip, Lyons also admits to owning roughly 289 pairs of shoes (and counting) and preferring styles in neon hues and glittery finishes. "I’ve actually been known to frighten a dog," she laughs. The video also goes behind the scenes at J.Crew’s Italian shoe workshop, where cobblers carefully craft the brand’s beautiful stilettos, flats and oxfords. We also get an up-close look at the company’s Etta shoe, a round-toed style with a chunky heel that’s a primary focus of the spring collection. To see Lyons model a sparkly pair of Ettas, learn why she thinks of shoes as "fairies" and find out which kicks she slips into after a hard day in heels, check out the full video below!
