Sara Shines the Light on Rent the Runway CEO/Co-Founder Jenn Hyman

Rent the Runway

You guys probably know Jenn Hyman, co-founder of Rent The Runway who is celebrating women by making the world their runway. It means a lot to be able to shine a light on other successful women in business and continue to inspire and empower women everywhere. I think what Jenn’s doing is amazing — she is changing the way women wear clothes, so we have a few things in common.

We put together a guide here to check out the hottest trends and the Spanx styles to wear underneath!

Have a wonderful holiday — whatever you celebrate — and thanks for giving me the gift of welcoming Spanx into your (rented) wardrobe and your life!


SB: If you weren't doing Rent the Runway, what would you be doing?

JH: I'd be in a wedding band, singing back up.

SB: If you were a superhero what would be your super power?

JH: Time travel- I would go to Woodstock. I can see myself very barefoot in the wind in a field with a ton of other people.

SB: Instagram or Twitter?

JH: Instagram is the quickest daily digest of what's going on in all of my friends' lives. It's a very quick way to keep in touch. Twitter is how I get my news.

SB: Favorite place to eat in NYC?

JH: I really love Red Farm, which is farm-to-table Chinese food.

SB: What's your favorite app?

JH:'s Uber for blowouts and makeup.

SB: Growing up: princess or tomboy?

JH: Neither... I wanted to be Jem from Jem and the Holograms.

SB: Favorite SPANX product?

JH: Higher Power Panties! I've been wearing them since college.

I always think of Spanx as the canvas and what Jenn's doing as the paint. If you don't have the right canvas as an artist, it affects the outcome of the painting.

If you have a subscription to fashion and you know that you don't have to make a lifelong commitment, you end up taking more risks.
