Q&A
Jennifer Creel, portrait by Ben Ritter.

By Jennifer Condon

Being a mother to three teenagers is work enough. But Jennifer Creel is not the type to focus her energy exclusively. In addition to working as a model and actress, the former Ralph Lauren designer oversees a burgeoning fashion empire that includes jewelry, clothing and her signature accessory, sunglasses. She credits Jackie O, Kate Moss and Charlotte Casiraghi as style icons, and maintains a similarly deliberate wardrobe of her own. Known for her impeccable style at home and on the street, the talented tastemaker is also an impressive athlete who has completed the NYC marathon and trekked to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. We find out what she’s sporting this fall.

What’s on your Fall wish list?
“These over-the-knee Altuzarra boots with tassels top my list of must-haves for fall.”

Is Joseph Altuzarra one of your favorite designers?
“Yes. I loved the sophisticated details of lace, leather and fur in his fall collection.”

What’s one of your favorite pieces from your jewelry line?
“My Creel-Mack Maltese cuff is a wardrobe staple that goes with nearly everything.”


What’s the next trip you’re taking?
“I’m looking forward to my trip to India to visit local artisans and a visit to the Ananda spa in the Himalayas.”

Do you travel light?
“I carry my personal belongings and a good book in a men’s Hermès canvas bag.”
