Fabcon: Genevieve Jones

Who is Genevieve Jones and where did she come from? The better question is who hasn't Genevieve Jones rubbed elbows with? According to Vogue, the jewelry/handbag designer is at every major fashion fete (Agent Provocateur's White party, Dolce & Gabbana's fragrance launch, amfAR gala, to name a few) and is friends with fashion A-listers like Margherita Missoni, Alexander Wang, and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld.

She's often referred to as the black Paris Hilton, but that's undoubtedly due to her social ways, because her fashion sense is worlds apart from the heiress. Let's just say if she allowed me to peek in her closet, someone would have to drag me out. She constantly switches up her looks, so we're never bored. She's arguably more photographed than many of today's young Hollywood starlets. Many upper-crust New Yorkers have wondered the very question I posed — who is Genevieve Jones? — but no matter the answer, it's clear she's here to stay.

To see more of Genevieve's stellar style,

@pez1984 all people are haters if you think about it. there are always going to be ppl that you like and ppl that you don't like. i personally think she's fly but i wouldn't call someone a hater just b/c they don't feel the same way. btw most of the black girls i know are fine with her so idk why you had to single us out like that. and some girls just don't know how to use makeup, fake eyelashes, extensions etc. properly, "overdoing it" is not a race thing.anyway i like her lol that is all

she's from baton rouge. i read somewhere that genevive jones is her pseudonym. with her, it was just being at the right parties and forcing her way into the right circles at the right time. if i remember correctly, she's about 32.

Well....geez, that's a tough act to follow, isn't it? I think she's pretty and all, but really not BEAUTIFUL like some other black celebrity women!

Greetings! My first post and maybe last, being that this is just a lady i feel compelled to defend, commemorate, etc... Ya know! I have know this girl since she moved here and the girl has always had flawless style. i was intrigued by her before this internet explosion because she's been a downtown fixture always rocking looks that were original and visionary that stylists, other fashionistas and just ordinary people were entranced by. She has never made claims of being royalty. She never ever claimed to go to school, in fact she's always expressed her disdain for it. she's a free spirit. She carry's herself gracefully, don't know if it's all the ballet classes or just her natural stature. She gets away with most because of her delicate lithe frame and everything she does is just considered adorable. She never wears bras, makeup or even heels for that matter. Maybe when she goes out, but its a when in rome kind of thing. One doesn't dress in workout gear to go to church, and if they do its totally inappropriate. She is so witty, she can discuss tolstoy, proust, balzac and is fluent in french. She does what most haven't done, which is travel the world, she attracts the creme of the crop and people in general are intrigued by her because she never went the regular route and played by the rules. She made it without having a last name, or her parents getting her jobs and friends and basically got the attention of the greatest people in the world just for being herself, chic! They continue to support her because she brings something to the plate. She's, talented, smart, beautiful, cultivated, funny, fun and just lights up any dull room because her energy is pure white light. I personally know her, she's not exactly perfect, but tell me who is. All these other girls are so boring and most wouldn't be given a second glance if it weren't for their parents. She's also not using her name to push subpar products to make a quick buck. She took advantage of the fact people showed interest in her simply by looking at pictures of her on the internet and left the behind of scenes of the interior/art/fashion world to show the people who care she's got talent. She's profiting grandly, transforming herself as a legitimate designer and though she's known for going to event's and being photographed in designer clothes that haven't even hit the racks for the general public, that's another part of her job. Her personal style which most never see is unmatchable and i know she has a $200 policy and doesn't buy anything of that price. Money can't buy style, she's got that and that's why she's GENIUS. You guys only see pictures of events, but she works and always had very hard and she's sailing on this opportunity to make it big and she will! I'm not a hater, I'm a supporter of any minority trying to hake it happen. She's like the Kanye West of the fashion work (but a lot more insecure than he). People love to hate (sad to say, other black girls) but she can will always continue to deliver. Hey, she's going to be selling in Bergdorf's!!! Hate on that! She sells to many high end stores and makes mad cash all around the globe. She has a ton of personal clients. If you don't know what she does, you soon will. Homegirl is a walking self pr has the best pr for her jewelry, the best showroom and a team of eager interns and she's working it on all levels. I do agree, she needs to step up game with the hair and makeup but does she really need it? Black girls tend to overdue it and its a fine line of goddess and trash. I think because she's been working so hard, she doesn't take the time to cover all the bases of outward appearance but then again i like that she doesn't spend her days getting dressed for parties. She's still a show stopper and has the best smile and radiant glow and a big big heart. Any one who knows her personally can attest to that. Lastly, i applaud her for not exploiting and being tacky to discuss her love life and her latest beau. She's just rocking the clothes, making the jewelry and bags and I am forever a devotee. Girl is here to stay, she overcame the the bumps and the hater's which sadly the main one was a bitter old black woman. The girl took it all in stride and showed the bitch what exactly a true lady is. She doesn't have a blog. She's not an heiress but she's a graceful as a princess, whether she's rolling with the downtown artists, slumped in a booth at Lit, lunching with Fabiola Beracasa, skateboarding with Neckface or driving around on her jade Vespa or on a pj to hang with friends around the world... Ha and if you want to get her car service just call lower east side, tres dope! And so what if she goes to event's, you all wish you were invited! Free clothes, food and alcohol! I see her walking her dog everyday and running into the 6 train. Genevieve is a phenomenon! One of the truest style icons of our time and not because of the way she dresses but also her flawless taste in art, culture and literature and her demeanor. She's a real woman and no matter what she does, it's al done well! I tried to ignore this, but she's a classic IT girl! love or hate her, i love her. People even hate God, I love GOD!!!!

AngelGrl135 AngelGrl135 7 years
and p.s. to you all wondering, she can get away with outfits like the one in the featured picture b/c thats part of her appeal. She's really small and petite like a little nymph or fairy. Thats one of the reasons ppl love her
AngelGrl135 AngelGrl135 7 years
im ABSOLUTELY intrigued by Genevieve. I mean its crazy. No one except for her knows how she got to the top and more importantly, stayed there. She comes from a normal middle/upper middle class Southern family (like me) and is now strutting her stuff on red carpets,popping up in every other party pic in Vogue, hanging with fabulous people and wearing FABULOUS clothes all without having a concrete job and doesn't have the hassle of paparazzi trying to knock down her front door. Yes I'm jealous. :-)

Oh and I think she intitally got attention for being a then unknown Zac Posen's muse. But supposedly she comes from a middle class family in the south somewhere...

Genevieve Jones is so ahead of the curve. She has the ability to pull off a very avant garde outfit with total sophistication. She's one of those people who really rocks whatever she's wearing, not the other way around. Love!

Her style's ok but she really needs a new hairdo. I have to say that the striped outfit is fugly (the one she's wearing, not the image? on the wall). What do people mean when they ask, "who is she"? Isn't her name enough? Why does it matter who her parents are? What part of her background should do people want to know?

is that vintage bill blass she's wearing in the first picture? Well she's obviously pretty wealthy. Maybe she's from somewhere abroad, that might be why no one knows exactly who she is.

Let me get this straight... she comes from nowhere, did nothing... and is now a "socialite/designer"...? Cool. I think I'm the next big thing...

Love the mystery...but to be honest ive seen waaaaaaay more chic and better looking girls from around the way....

She's alleged from Louisiana. And lots of rumors after that. I personally think she is kind of annoying and not really one of the top tier socialites. Vogue picked up on her as their black girl to publish pictures of and are running with it so she's always in that magazine whoever she is.
