After a busy morning, which included a visit to the 9/11 Memorial and the new 1 World Trade Center building, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made their way to Gramercy shortly after one P.M. for the Creativity is GREAT reception at private workspace NeueHouse. The couple mingled for about 30 minutes with around 80 different members of the British creative and art industries, including Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman, Sir Patrick Stewart, and Jenna Lyons, while munching on fare including scotch egg bites, pea-soup shooters, and salmon gravlax on cucumber.
...Lyons, the J. Crew creative director, who chatted with Kate briefly during the reception, told us she was elated to have met the Duchess. “My father’s British so I grew up going to England every summer and sometimes for Christmas,” she said. “I will say, it feels very powerful [meeting Kate]. I can imagine for her, she’s just a normal person—but it doesn’t feel like that to me. She’s, in essence, a true version of a princess. She’s lovely, gracious. It was incredibly exciting.”
Lyons said that the two of them talked “for two seconds” about Kate meeting Beyoncé and Jay Z at the Barclays Center last night. When asked if Kate had ever worn J. Crew before, Lyons looked like she might explode with glee. “Believe it or not, I was told she wore J. Crew jeans last night to the game,” she said. “I was so excited. You couldn’t tell, but that’s okay. At least I know that fact.”
