What Ever Happened to the Jenna Lyons Divorce Drama?

+

When the news broke that J.Crew creative director, Jenna Lyons, was divorcing husband Vincent Mazeau in order to pursue a relationship with Courtney Crangi, sister of Giles & Brother jeweler Philip, blogs were aflame with the juicy gossip. “Lyons has helped countless women and men define themselves,” Newsweek‘s special correspondent Robin Givhan wrote at the time. “And that’s a relationship far more intimate than one involving any television character.”

Two months later, and the J.Crew doyenne is back to business as usual; her private life as forgotten as last year’s plaid. (Photos of the fashion plate conspicuously tucking her left hand in her pocket at the CFDA Awards on November 14 were all but ignored.) So what happened to a national captivation so deafening that some outlets went so far as to postulate on the outcome for the couple’s Park Slope home? “My only theory is that Jenna wisely said nothing about the divorce,” Givhan tells BULLETT. “And without new tidbits to stoke the fires, the story just burned itself out. Perhaps a lesson other famous folks could learn?”
