"I have all the respect in the world for Mickey and for Jenna. I have to say, Jenna and I are so close, and she is honestly my first true mentor--and I don’t think many people can say they have that. We’re so in sync, for her to take on that role [of CEO] I would be so happy for her, for J.Crew, for Mickey, for everyone. So crossing my fingers that that’s what happens!"

--J.Crew head designer Marissa Webb responds to CEO Mickey Drexler's suggestion (in a Bloomberg interview last week) that Jenna Lyons would be a good fit to succeed him at Wednesday's CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event.
