sparkly quirk

I love Jenna Lyons. She has style, talent, success, and according to NY Magazine she's also very nice. I loved the profile they did on her for a past issue, The J in J.Crew, most of all because it highlights Jenna's quirk so much. It's like she's the antithesis of Martha Stewart. I adore Martha Stewart, but I think it must be a lot of work to be like her. All of this DIY-ing, decoupaging and sewing. I love to love Martha because she portrays the image of this perfect old school lifestyle which I love to gawk at, but not necessarily want for myself. Jenna on the other hand, has mastered how to be perfectly imperfect. She was freakishly tall, lanky and had skin problems as a child, but has become one of the most beautiful and admired women in fashion. The thing about her is that she's not obviously pretty. She wears huge glasses, doesn't tuck in her shirts, she even has bald spots on her head. I also bet that she doesn't fold her fitted sheets at home. Unlike Martha, Jenna makes everything seem efortless, from the way she dresses to her work ethic, and that in my opinion, is something to aspire to. Read the whole profile here.

Me encanta Jenna Lyons. Es una mujer con estilo, talento, éxito y además según NY Magazine, es muy linda persona. Me gustó mucho el perfil que le hicieron para una edición pasada, The J in J.Crew, sobre todo porque resalta lo poco común que es ella. Jenna es como la anti-Martha Stewart. A pesar de que Martha es otra de las mujeres que admiro, me parece que su estilo de vida implica muchísimo trabajo. Todos estos proyectos hechos a mano, cocina, costura, etc. Me encanta el deber ser de estilo de vida que ella transmite, pero no necesariamente es algo que quiero. Jenna por otro lado, es la modelo del estilo de vida perfectamente imperfecto. No es tradicionalmente bonita, ocupa anteojos enormes (culo de botella), no se mete la camisa y se le cae el pelo, sin embargo, hoy en día es considerada una de las mujeres más lindas de la moda. A diferencia de Martha, Jenna hace que todo se vea fácil, desde la manera como se viste hasta su trabajo, y eso en mi opinión, es algo a lo que cualquiera de nosotras puede aspirar.
