Jessica Simpson’s $1 Billion Fashion Empire

Jessica Simpson’s singing career may not make her any money, but her fashion career – is about to cross the $1 billion mark this year. According to an article in New York Magazine, the volume of sales by Simpson’s clothing is actually rivaling that of fashion titan Michael Kors. Can you believe that?

“I never thought I’d be some fashion mogul,” said the 30-year-old, who will add a full ready-to-wear collection and a career separates line later this year.

She also opened up about her fiance, Eric Johnson….

The duo met through mutual friends when he came to a party at Simpson’s house.

“Was it love at first sight? No,” said Simpson, whose love life has been tabloid fodder for years. “I don’t know if I believe in that. But it was definitely I could love this man. And maybe I already do.”

“It was a complete shock, a beautiful shock,” she told New York Magazine. “It felt great for somebody to be on his knee and I had to sit on that knee because I was so excited and overwhelmed. I couldn’t even stand. Knowing that I had his knee to sit on in that moment was very magical. The way I always wanted it to be.”
