Jessica Simpson Adds Dresses to Her Fashion Empire

Hot on the heels of announcements that we’ll soon be able to smell like Jessica Simpson with a spritz of her fragrance Fancy, and slip into her signature undergarments, the singer has just revealed that we’ll also be able to dress like her. WWD reports that the star has inked a deal for a full line of dresses slated to launch in Spring 2009 in department and specialty stores. “I’m extremely excited,” she tells WWD. “I plan on creating beautiful dresses in distinctive fabrics and silhouettes that are reflective of my personal style.” Even if she couldn’t tell the difference between chicken and tuna, she’s turned out to be extremely business savvy. We can already get a piece of the singer through her successful lines of eyewear, purses, jewelry, clip-in hair extensions, bath and body care products, outerwear and footwear — with the shoe line alone estimated to pull in a quarter-billion dollars this year. Tell us: What do you think of Jessica’s decision to expand her style empire with a dress collection? Will you wear the frocks?

Less Jessica, more Ashlee!

Fashion empire? Wow. Terms like that are way too overused nowadays.

At least she has a back up plan. I think the country singing and acting careers are not going to make her alot of money so congrats to her.

This girl and her Dad never quits. She has remade herself so many times that it leaves Madonna spinning. She has been teen singer, dingbat on Newlyweds, actress????, bathing suit designer, hair extensions and products, advocate of a pimple remover, Operation Smile (she worked hard) Booed Country singer and now dress designing. I just wish she would get out of our faces. People are tired of her and DADDY Simpson.
I can’t wait for the preacher man to have her kissing a women next on TV. To think I use to like her!
Why does she think that we have to see her doing something new every month?


These business ideas come from Joe’s brother Homer. Neither Joe or Jessica are smart enough to come up with them. Look at Homer’s show’s success compared to Jessica’s recording and movie career.

Less both of them!

I’m w/Alexis. It’s a Jessica Empire and I predict it will fall soon since she seems to be grasping for attention.

I think Jessica Simpson is ridiculous. I wouldn’t sully myself with her name.
