FFANY Shoes on Sale
Jessica Simpson has donated her shoes to TV shoppers, in honour of her grandmother, as part of a breast cancer fundraising drive. The Texan singer also appears in a series of adverts promoting the QVC FFANY Shoes on Sale event that will air on US TV on October 13. FFANY stands for the Fashion Footwear Association of New York. Sitting on a wooden box and armed with a red high-heeled shoe in one hand and a clutch of open-toe sandals in the other, the 29-year-old is pictured next to a message that reads: "These are for my nana." She goes on to say: "My grandmother had breast cancer, which is why I am donating shoes from the Jessica Simpson Collection and shopping FFANY Shoes on Sale on QVC." Viewers can buy the shoes for half of the suggested retail price and net proceeds will help fund breast cancer research and education. Other donors include the makers of Dr Martens, Ugg boots and AK Anne Klein.
