Ashlee Simpson took over as hostess at last night's NYC launch of the Jessica Simpson Collection's Fall 2013 line because the designing woman herself, Jessica, was home with her 1-month-old son, Ace Johnson. Nonetheless, Jessica and her growing family, which includes fiancé Eric Johnson and 1-year-old daughter Maxwell, were a big topic of conversation! Ashlee briefed us on life with Ace and also dished about working with Jess and their mom, Tina, on the Jessica Simpson brands. On Allie: Banana Republic dress and Massimo Dutti blazer.
