Jessica Simpson stepped out of a studio in LA yesterday in a leg-baring sequined gold minidress. Her fiancé, Eric Johnson, met up with Jess later in the evening at the Sunset Tower, though there was no sign of his parents who joined the engaged couple for cocktails over the weekend. Taping has already begun on Jessica’s upcoming NBC fashion reality contest, Fashion Star, and according to sources Jess and her fellow judge, Nicole Richie, are getting along great. In addition to filming her show, Jessica’s still looking for the perfect wedding dress and launching a new fragrance, I Fancy You. If that wasn’t enough to keep her busy, she’s also prepping for the Fall release of her latest shoe, clothing, denim, and signature bag collection.
