Lucy Sykes Joins Rent the Runway - And Gives Us the Deets!

Remember when I told you that you could rent Jen Aniston's Nina Ricci dress off Rent the Runway? I've recently become obsessed with scouring the site for the perfect Fashion Week ensemble (wish me luck!), and now I'm even more excited to tell you Lucy Sykes, former fashion editor and clothing designer, has joined the Rent the Runway team as Consulting Fashion Director. I caught up with Lucy the other day and found out which dress she's obsessing over on the site!

I Heart Heels: What are some of your plans for Rent the Runway in the upcoming months?
Lucy Sykes:
I'm excited to see my vision come to life on the site and in film. My first collaborations have been directing photoshoots and videos for the site - and the images turned out beautifully…chic, cool and beautiful. 

"I'm blessed to be in the position to help woman all over America look beautiful; that's the unexplained magic of designer gowns. Cinderella is just a click away…" --Lucy Sykes, Consulting Fashion Director, Rent the Runway

IHH: If you could rent any dress on the site right at this very moment what would it be and why?
My first rental was Prabal (Gurung). A beautiful hand-painted dress that’s impossible not to love.
IHH: What's in your closet? 
LS: My personal style is pretty classic sportswear (Rag and Bone, The Row, Zara). I love minimal, but in the last year can't stop piling on Alexis Bittar and Fenton Fallon. [I love] Repetto flats and stacked Christian Louboutin sparkly shoes, and just discovered kitten shoes by Paul Mayer - tres chic. Isabel Marant booties rock!

IHH: How will your previous role as fashion editor and your current role as clothing designer help you in this new position with Rent the Runway?
All my experience works for my consulting position at Rent the Runway. Having a vision is the first, working with people you admire is equal, and I am in a very wonderful place where I have both!
