Jenna Lyons 'Oprah' Appearance: J. Crew's Creative Director Reveals A Day In Her Life, Talks Michelle Obama & Tips (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

J. Crew's Creative Director Jenna Lyons--the brains behind the brand's recent makeover and enormous popularity--appeared on Oprah's 'Dream Jobs' episode on Wednesday. Lyons discussed landing her dream job, Michelle Obama, and her tips for dressing with panache.

In this first clip, Lyons walks viewers through a day in her life, which looks every bit as enviable as you'd imagine. Starting with her closet.

Last July, Huffington Post blogger Rachel Strugatz visited Jenna Lyons in her office at J. Crew headquarters. See what Jenna keeps on her desk and more here.

Then, naturally, Lyons and Oprah got around to talking about the first lady, J. Crew's most famous customer. Mrs. Obama famously wore a J. Crew ensemble on The Tonight Show during Sarah Palin's $150,000 wardrobe scandal.

Oprah admitted "When I saw the first lady, even before she became the first lady, wearing J. Crew--full disclosure here--I went and bought some J. Crew stock. And that was a very good decision."

Lyons also shared her tips on putting together a fabulous outfit.
