Simpson left the Bowery Hotel clad in a red and blue striped blouse and a scarlet Isabel Marant skirt ($189), which she teamed with sky-high navy blue sandals to show off her toned legs and add height to her 5-foot-3-inch frame.
But Simpson’s outfit got its unique flair from her accessories. The 37-year-old carried a lip-printed Gelareh Mizrahi python clutch ($595), which is fashioned to resemble model Lara Stone’s distinct gap-toothed pout, and added another fun element to her look with rose-covered Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses ($2,610).
Simpson began her career as a pop star — she signed a recording contract at age 16 — but has found success in the fashion business, developing an eponymous clothing, shoes and accessories line with a $1 billion valuation. The shoe portion of her business is licensed to the Camuto Group, which was recently purchased by the Aldo Group in a blockbuster deal.
In a previous interview with Footwear News, Simpson said she played an active role in the design process for her shoe collection, despite her licensing deal with Camuto. “I am very involved in the design process as I sign off on every single shoe. I bring design inspiration and ideas and then leave it up to the Camuto Group to do what they do so brilliantly,” Simpson said.
