It seems local rocker Jay Lyon STILL has a crush on Whitney Port!

Well, a style crush at least…

The Sydney-born hunk, who famously dated the reality star on MTV show ‘The City,’ has helped her launch her hot new fashion line ‘Whitney Eve’ Down Under.

Whit, who’s in town to unveil her designs here for the very first time at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion week tonight, credits the Tamarama band member for making her Aussie dream a reality.

"He's actually helped me a lot with the fashion show, getting me sponsors and getting my line out here," the TV stunner told the Sunday Telegraph.

As well as confessing she was “hopeful” her former beau would make it to her show, the 27-year-old said she couldn’t wait to soak up more Sydneyside style on her visit!

"I love the beach aesthetic, and the way (Aussie) women mix funkiness and beachiness," she added.
