Jessica Simpson Could Be Fashion’s First Billionaire
These days, Jessica Simpson’s looking like a billion bucks.
In more ways than one!
She may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but singer/actress Jessica Simpson is well on her way to becoming the world’s “first billionairess fashionista,” thanks to her successful fashion empire, consisting of clothing, handbags, footwear, and swimwear.
The 30-year-old’s Jessica Simpson brand has amassed a nest egg of $750 million in sales for the engaged starlet this year alone, fashion expert Vince Camuto, which is the master licensee of Simpson’s collection.
“She is the girl next door and has great product that surrounds her,” Camuto told Women’s Wear Daily Monday. “People like her. People look at her as a style icon.”
With a fortune of nearly $1 billion, it’s no wonder Jessica paid for her own engagement ring. (You know, “allegedly.”) Okay, famous girl buying her own engagement ring is a sure fire road to disaster. Just ask Britney Spears about Kevin Federline. The mags are also saying Jess has refused to have hubby-to-be (aka boyfriend of five months) Eric Johnson sign a prenup, although her last divorce left her forking over millions to then hubby Nick Lachey. No prenup! Papa Joe Simpson must be reeling.
