Appearing in several of Macy’s celebrity-filled advertising campaigns, Jessica Simpson will celebrate Macy’s 150th birthday at its New York City birthday bash on October 28, 2008. 

Macy’s birthday is tomorrow.

And to celebrate, the mega store chain will rename 34th Street in New York City to R.H. Macy Way in honor of the brand’s founder.

It’s the location of its Herald Square flagship and world’s largest store.

That same evening, Macy’s will host a fashion industry gala at Gotham Hall – just a block from its flagship store – with a guest list featuring

 

  • Jessica Simpson
  • Sean “Diddy” Combs
  • Eva Mendes
  • Martha Stewart
  • Tommy Hilfiger
  • Kenneth Cole

 

The event will culminate with the reveal of a special birthday cake designed by Duff from Ace of Cakes followed by a fireworks finale off the roof of the retailer’s famous NYC landmark store.

Also, in honor of the milestone, the Empire State Building (Macy’s neighbor on 34th Street) will be lit red.

The ceremonial unveiling of the street sign will take place the morning of October 28. The temporary signs will be on view until November 15th.

Happy Birthday, Macy’s!
