Hours later, Simpson's fiance Eric Johnson presented her with the ultimate gift: a bright orange Birkin bag (with an estimated retail value of $15,000).

Simpson's 31st year looks to be a promising one: she will mentor aspiring fashion designers alongside Nicole Richie and menswear designer John Varvatos on NBC's new reality competition series, Fashion Star. Hosted by supermodel Elle MacPherson, Executive VP of Alternative Programming Paul Telegdy recently told Us Weekly he's happy to have Simpson on board.
