Jessica Simpson  celebrated her Lucky magazine September cover  and the launch of her new denim line with an intimate dinner at the Soho House in LA last week. We were there to chat with a very happy, confident Jessica about her hugely successful collections, what she looks for in a pair of jeans, and how her travels have influenced her design eye. Jessica was bubbly and sweet, with her famous self-aware sense of humor thrown in. In part two coming up, Jess dishes on her wonderful Summer, her birthday vacation in Italy with her friends and new boyfriend , and the holiday album she just started working on — stay tuned to watch that later.
