Are Jones Apparel Group CEO Wes Card and Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren long-lost twins? Some people think so, according to a tale Card shared with Lundgren at the 27th Annual Macy’s Passport Fashion Show Benefit, held recently in Santa Monica, Calif. “It was the funniest thing — I walked into the Macy’s at the West Side Pavilion and all the employees came running up and they thought I was you,” Card said. Lundgren (below) seemed game to utilize his look-alike. “That’s great. I’m going to use you as my clone and you can do all my store visits. That would really help me out,” he joked. When the banter turned back to business, Lundgren told Insider that the shoe partner behind a celebrity line is what’s most valuable. “The only way celebrity lines work is when they align themselves with a great manufacturer,” he said. “Jessica Simpson is the best [celebrity line] we have. The lesson there is if you’re going to align with someone, align with Vince Camuto.” The benefit event, which was expected to raise more than $1 million for HIV-AIDS research, also attracted celebrities including Kathy Ireland, AnnaLynne McCord, Rachel Roy, Sharon Stone and Dame Elizabeth Taylor.
