Jessica Simpson, once know solely for her music career, is set to become one of fashion’s most successful celebrity designers of all time as her line has pulled in $750 million this year. Life aint too shabby for the recently engaged star.
29-year-old Simpson is set to be on the cover of Monday’s Women’s Wear Daily with the headline: “Jessica Simpson: Fashion’s Billion Dollar Baby.”
It is estimated that Simpson’s Jeanswear and Sportswear lines will generate between $150-$200 million in the next two years. No other celebrity designer has ever hit $1 billion in sales. Simpson, herself, is reportedly worth $100 million.
“She’s the girl next door and has great product that surrounds her,” Vince Camuto, the founder and chief executive officer of Camuto Group, the brand’s master licensee, told the magazine. “People like her. People look at her as a style icon.”
The Jessica Simpson Collection carries shoes, dresses, jean, swimsuits, outerwear, accessories, watches and fragrances and will be launching a sportswear line soon.
Jessica spoke to the magazine about her upcoming collection. “Since entering the fashion industry, I’ve envisioned including a sportswear line in my lifestyle brand. This new sportswear line reflects my evolving style, which combines comfort, femininity and flirty fun.”
Who would have thought that the girl with the floundering music career didn’t even need it.
