(DAILYMAIL) — They may have been dating since March, but for the first time since her divorce from Vincent Mazeau last year, Jenna Lyons has publicity acknowledged her relationship with jewellery executive Courtney Crangi.

At the Glamour Women of the Year awards, J. Crew’s creative director thanked her girlfriend, Ms Crangi, by name during her acceptance speech.

‘Nothing worth having is easy,’ the honoree, 43, said during her speech at Carnegie Hall on Monday night, before thanking ‘Courtney, who has shown me new love.’

Ms Lyons, who has become as well known for her off-beat aesthetic as she has for her new leading lady, turned J Crew into a billion-dollar business with the help of her boss, CEO Millard ‘Mickey’ Drexler.
