Jessica Simpson secretly designing wedding dresses — hoping to use one special bridal gown as her own?

[Apr. 16]

Celebrity singer and actress Jessica Simpson — she sure filled in those Daisy Dukes well on the film version of The Dukes of Hazard (2005) — is reported to be designing her own wedding dress for when she gets hitched at the end of this year. She has said it won’t come from the Jessica Simpson Collection, according to the website Jezebel, but she adds, “I think every bride wants to design her own dress or at least have a part in it…” but rumor is she is keeping all her bridal gown designs a secret.

Jessica Simpson confirmed for Extra that the date to marry fiance Eric Johnson, formerly with the 49ers and the Saints in the NFL, is sometime later this year, but she didn’t identify a specific date. Extra also noted that Simpson on Thursday sang at Coors Field in Denver, CO, in a tribute to military families, alongside First Lady Michelle Obama. Jessica Simpson said, “When I got the call from Mrs. Obama, I was pretty shocked. It was like, did she get the wrong number?”

Regarding the Jessica Simpson official wedding dress design secret, website Gather notes:

As tantalizing as knowing Jessica Simpson’s wedding dress will be another one of her own creations, fans will just have to wait to learn more because Simpson is keeping very hush hush about the potential details. Maybe Jessica is worried that Vanessa Minnillo will come along and steal her design ideas.

The Business Insider has noted that Jessica Simpson designing her own wedding dress is a big deal. She has been working on her fashion brand since 2008, when she put out her last album. So it should be no news that she has made a hit of designing her own wedding dress. Is the green celebrity going to go into fashion design full time? “Simpson now sells (in case you’ve not been in a Macy’s for a few years): shoes, handbags, denim, outerwear, glasses, swimwear, accessories, fragrance and luggage. And her brand is valued somewhere between $750 million and $1 billion,” says Business Insider.

Is this a cue that Jessica Simpson will be launching her own bridal line?



Green celebrity Jessica Simpson supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, the Skin Cancer Foundation, and Soles4Souls, among other charities. She told Monsters and Critics that charity work helps her put the drama in her own life on the backburner. Simpson long has supported Operation Smile, which helps children with facial defromities. And who couldn’t use a smile these days?
