For their Spring 2010 collection, J.Crew looked to nine stylish women, like author Lily Koppel (left), for inspiration. "We created outfits for them that they'd be comfortable in, that would make them feel like themselves," J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons told StyleList. Koppel topped her matchstick jeans and Selvedge chambray shirt with an adorable straw fedora, while New York City Ballet dancer Ellen Bar (right) leapt across the catalog in an elegant silk chiffon Delphinia gown. So how did J.Crew find its nine muses? Stylist Dianna Lunt was spotted on a blog ("We cold-called her because we've been personally stalking her style," said Lyons) while others, including interior designer Celerie Kemble and fashion consultant Amanda Brooks, were plucked from Lyons's own circle of friends. You can view more of J.Crew's spring muses in their latest catalog and on jcrew.com.
