J. Crew Spring 2012: The Retailer Knocks It Out of the Park for Their First Fashion Week Showing (Plus Beyonce Stops By)

J.Crew presented their spring 2012 collection for the first time ever during New York fashion week at Lincoln Center yesterday. Unsurprisingly, the presentation room was packed--especially the side devoted to the women's collection--but the men's collection on the flip side didn't disappoint either, and there's an anorak we're hoping fits in XS. The models all looked like mini Jenna Lyons--particularly the one styled in thick framed glasses--as they should be; J.Crew's president and brand poster girl is the woman we all (or at least many of us) aspire to dress like. The clothes were fantastic, comme d'hab, and styled to perfection. Things we learned from the presentation: neon is not going anywhere (phew), hot pink and fire engine red should be worn together (a color combo that recalls a Prabal Gurung ensemble SJP wore recently), mint green and yellow are colors to stock up on, and don't forget to incorporate your prints--as long as they're subtle. We can say that J.Crew knocked it out of the park for their first showing at Lincoln Center, but we think it means more that a pregnant J.Crew-clad Beyonce stopped by (along with sis Solange). The Queen B seal of approval? What could be better than that.

If you need a little more Jenna (and who doesn't) check out this adorable interview she gives Pop Sugar where she says compares fashion week to going to prom and says that her son helps her pick out here shoes. Cute overload.
