Jessica Simpson is expanding her fashion empire yet again. The buxom blonde has already introduced a line of sunglasses, swimsuits, and footwear under the Jessica Simpson brand and now J.S is developing a line of country-western wear to debut by the Summer of 2009.
It’s all apart of dad Joe Simpson’s plan to help Jessica sail to the top of the country charts. Joe thinks a new “designer denim and western wear” clothing line will help Jess cash in on her new country image and fan base.
“Joe realized it’d be a natural for Jessica to design a line that included everything from tight-fitting jeans to cowboy hats,” a Star Magazine insider says. “She’s really a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl anyway…If things go well, Jessica should have her name on people’s butts by the Summer of 2009.”
Jessica, whose first country single “Come On Over” made an impressive Billboard debut, unofficially retired from pop music last week.
