With her reality show and new fragrance on the way, Jessica Simpson is gearing up for a fabulous fall — and she’s already celebrating with Macy’s! For the past two weeks, the store’s Herald Square flagship has dedicated their windows to Jessica Simpson Collection’s fall line, and Jessica tells PEOPLE exclusively that it’s “a total thrill for me. I feel privileged just to be in business with such an iconic store.” She continues, “And it is an honor to know that Macy’s respects and believes in my brand so much that they chose to feature the Fall collection in the windows at one of their flagship stores! WOW…I feel blessed.”

But that’s not the only way that Jessica teaming up with Macy’s this fall — she’s also a part of their Come Together campaign, which is working with Feeding America to help families in need. And while Jessica may be goofing around in the star-filled commercial for the campaign — “I get to throw a baguette at Tommy Hilfiger, which is fun,” she jokes — she is deeply committed to the cause. “Hopefully this commercial will help raise money for Feeding America. It’s such an incredible charity. It’s amazing the numbers of how many people are hungry in America,” Jessica says. And Simpson is also helping the cause by throwing her own Coming Together dinner party to raise money. “I’ll definitely throw a dinner party. It might not be as tidy as a Martha Stewart dinner party, but I will cook up some good food – Southern style!” Jessica even has a guest-of-honor in mind. “The one person I would love to have at my dinner party is Dolly Parton. She’s always good with the laughter and the one liners.” Can we come too?

It appears you know her personally Jules by the way you attack her abilities. How do you know she doesn’t know anything about what she sells? And what are you selling or promoting? Admit it you are a root hugger and we understand your frustration. Jess will not mind it that you are taking your frustration out on her…she will continue to be fine $$$$$$.

Very nice post, D. As Americans, why can’t we be supportive of one another and be happy for our fellow Americans if they are successful and happy. What’s so hard being a nice person?

Jessica and everyone else deserve to see positive comments and support.

Ugh! Macy’s windows need stuff ‘designed’ y Jessica Simpson like Jessica Simpson ‘needs’ you people to wish her luck. On her worst day, she’s got more luck – and money! – than you can even dream of – and yet you – who have nothing – wish her -who with a big smile and big boobs has already had and acheived more thean she’s a right to – more.


What’s wrong with this picture??

Hey Jules when does your line come out? And when can we see you promoting it in ads?

I LOVE Jessica Simpson’s line. Can’t wait to see it in stores. :) I’ll definitely buy stuff.

Jules, I don’t think she ever compared herself to Karl Lagerfeld. Some of us can’t afford Chanel, so it’s nice when Jessica creates things that are cute and affordable. Also, do you think that people like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein craft everything that comes out with their name on it? No, they have other designers working under their name. I wouldn’t buy something specifically because it has her name on it, but I wouldn’t not buy it for that reason either. I think someone is jealous.
