Reader, even though bars, clubs, and—heck!—amusement parks may be open for business these days, the most fun spot in New York is probably Jenna Lyons’ shoe closet. It’s big, but there’s little space for minimalism: crystal-covered Tom Fords, strappy Gucci sandals, pointy pumps in every bright color and ironic finish (including one pair that bears a striking resemblance to Restoration Hardware’s yeti chair). “I have a tendency to appreciate opposites in a look,” said Jenna, and footwear is the perfect place to play with contrasts. “How many things can I mash up in one look? Give me a minute and I’ll keep trying!” she added with a laugh. Then she threw on a mens blazer with pearls, a smoky eye with a heavy pair of glasses, and dramatic false lashes with a heather gray sweatshirt. Ultralip in Lucite, which doesn’t add much but a sheer glossy finish, offered a palate-cleansing neutral to the chaos… er… everywhere else. Which happened to include a giant inflatable alien. Hey, if the past year has taught us anything, it’s that new friends are everywhere!
Jenna wears a Glossier sweatshirt (her second, because the first got snatched off the back of her chair at a restaurant) on top of a Hugo Boss men’s shirt. Her glasses are Tom Ford. Troi added vampy drama underneath the heavy black frames, but kept it fresh by playing with unexpected tones: shimmery moss (Lidstar in Herb) meets matte navy (this single Bobbi Brown shadow) on the lid, and melts into Black Ink gel liner at the lash line. A dusting of Ilia’s Radiant Translucent powder, a high-impact Loveseen Noor lash, Ultralip in Lucite, and we’re done.
