No wonder she’s not signing anymore. Apparently Jessica Simpson‘s clothing line is “Irresistible”! Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) has reported that the Jessica Simpson Collection will most likely become the first ever celebrity fashion line to earn more than a billion dollars in retail sales. This year alone, it has already brought in $750 million in retail sales! Holy crap! Her estimated net worth is $100 million right now. She’s come a long way since her “Chicken of the Sea” comment.
Vince Camuto, the founder and CEO of Camuto Group (the brand’s master licensee) said to WWD, “She is the girl next door and has great product that surrounds her. People like her. People look at her as a style icon.”
The Camuto Group licenses 22 of Simpson’s lines, which include: dresses, swimsuits, outerwear, watches, fragrances and more. Next year, she’ll be coming out with a sporting line as well. Her jeanswear is a gold mine, with The Jones Group also having licensing for it. They say it’s far surpassed their expectations. In fact, her jeanswear and sporting line alone are expected to generate $150 to $200 million in sales over the next couple years.
The former Newlywed, Simpson beats out Madonna & Lourdes, Gwen Stefani, The Olsen Twins, and Victoria Beckham who all have their own celebrity fashion lines as well.
You can catch her ex, Nick Lachey hosting The Sing-Off on NBC.
