J.Crew President & Executive Creative Director Jenna Lyons has single-handedly inspired a generation of fashionistas with her quirky chic style and boldly beautiful colors, cuts and prints. Recently dubbed by the New York Times as “The Woman Who Dresses America,” and named by Glamour as “Women of the Year,” the First Lady favorite is having a major moment.
Now, she’s teaming up with Charitybuzz to give one very lucky fan an inside peek into her life as fashion tastemaker with the ultimate J.Crew experience, all for a great cause. Lyons is auctioning the chance for one winning bidder to spend a day at J. Crew’s NYC offices and go behind the scenes of a photo shoot, plus join her for a one-on-one lunch meeting. During the exclusive sit-down, the self-proclaimed fashion “outsider” will share firsthand what goes into leading an iconic American brand.
Proceeds benefit IS 289 Hudson River Middle School. Lyons said about her support for the cause, ”Two of my son’s best friends have gone to public schools since they were little girls. It truly exemplifies what a strong public school education can do for young women.”
We are coveting this amazing day with an amazing fashion icon!

There is absolutely positively no other gal that can work her Manolos down the streets of the Upper East Side quite like the fabulous Carrie Bradshaw! Sarah Jessica Parker’s Sex and the City character has strutted her fashionable self into our hearts from the very first time we laid eyes on her shoe collection. Her wonderful way with words, and her undeniably amazing style have made Carrie Bradshaw one of NYC’s most iconic personas. Très chic, Carrie!

Charitybuzz launched the Christie’s Bid To Save The Earth auction today, with some amazing fashion-friendly items up for grabs to benefit a truly amazing cause! Check out this article from Style.com, below!
Last year, Christie’s brought in $1.36 million with its annual Bid to Save the Earth live auction in New York, where attendees bid on airplane rides with Harrison Ford and a day with Bill Clinton. The auction house has equally exciting items and experiences lined up for this year’s April 11 gala (Anna and Graydon Carter, Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault, and Susan and David Rockefeller are among the co-chairs), but ahead of the big event, Christie’s launches an online auction this morning, powered by Charitybuzz. Tea with model Elettra Wiedemann, a limited-edition reissued vintage Fendi Baguette handbag, and an afternoon of shopping with Simon Doonan (along with $2,500 to spend at Barneys) are all in the loot, but Style.com has its eye on the six bespoke Stella McCartney bags going up for auction today. McCartney, a dedicated green activist, teamed up with five artists to create one-of-a-kind bags for the auction. Style.com has the exclusive first look at the bags, featuring art by the likes of Mr. Brainwash (pictured, above), Bunta Inoue (pictured, below), and Peter Tunney, here. The bags will be for sale this morning through April 19 on Charitybuzz.com.
