His Clandestine Industries line has a collection that recently hit Nordstrom, and Pete Wentz says one major inspiration is his new — and pregnant! — fiancee, Ashlee Simpson.”She is a good sounding board for me,” Wentz told PEOPLE on Thursday. “She’s really supportive and always positive but sometimes she’ll get me to rethink [things]. Like I’ll be like, ‘We should do a half-plaid, half-pastel hoodie!’ And she’ll be like, ‘I like it, but maybe you should do it as two separate hoodies.’ She’s good like that.” As for Ashlee’s new line at Wet Seal, Pete admits, “I haven’t really seen it [yet].” When asked what life is like not only as a fashion designer and musician, but also as a husband and father to be, Wentz sums up his feelings very simply: “I’m happy!”

Is this the goofiest poser ever? I guess he and his “superstar” chick are perfect for each other. DWEEBBSSSS!

His manufactured music is just as awful as his girlfriend’s manufactured lip-synched music. Why are these people in the music industry? They’re not even remotely talented. Now fashion? Please…spare me.

I’m supposed to take fashion advice from a guy with a cameltoe?

I like his eyeliner. Do you think he will market makeup?
