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?
