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?

Arnavut on

I am addicted to her shoes. Her style is unbelievable.

Good for Jessica. She is doing her thang, ;o)

K-Goody on

I wish Ashlee would make a line… :[

Jules on

haha, jaylee. They are all “serious” designers now, and I’m surprised how many are being backed by serious designers. I guess it pays to brand a name, afterall. I bet she couldn’t name you two high notes wrt fragrance and how to balance them w/low notes.

Donna on

Who cares, she is still as dumb as a door nail

Cari on

She does not make any of the clothes and she does not design it. She just has her name on them.

Jules on

I don’t mean to sound obtuse, but that is really it, Cari? She just sniffs, looks, and signs off her name? Man, I went into the wrong vocation back in the day. (and yes, I’m TOTALLY jealous!). :-D

Although, if that is true, it makes me want it even less now.

TLA on

Ok how is being wasteful and throwing food around on a tv commercial a positive way to promote feeding the hungry.

DELCIA on

JAYLEE,

DON’T BE A HATER. SOME PEOPLE JUST HAVE A KNACK
TO BE VERY STYLE SAVAY.

I HAVE A FRIEND THAT LOOKS LIKE A MILLION BUCKS, BUT BUYS SALES AND AS THE SAYING GOES, ITS NOT HOW MUCH YOU SPEND, BUT HOW YOU PUT IT TOGETHER.

ALSO, HER SHOES AND CLOTHES ARE BEAUTIFUL AND SHE DOES DRESS CLASSY FOR EVENTS.

Regina on

Love Jessica’s Collection and esp her Handbags!

Jules on

Del-I guess you’ve never seen her wear uggs, leggings, and an oversized shirt in LA. Yeah, the biting….balmy LA days really call for uggs when you’re shopping. And we know of her love of louis, but goodness, you don’t have to wear all your monogram at once together, there, ms. fashionista.

I tease. ;)
