Jessica Simpson is on a roll as a designer, with a new collection of swimwear launching this month, in addition to her ongoing accessories, shoes, outerwear, handbag, and luggage lines. Stylelist.com sat down with the 29 year-old to get the scoop on her latest venture, a collaboration with bathing suit purveyor Red Carter—and her mother Tina, of whom the star says, “My mom is also a huge part of the line. We love working together from inspiration to final product—we touch each and every item.” Simpson chatted more about the back story of the pieces: “My spring collection was inspired by my favorite vacations and the jet-setting getaways I dream about,” and describes the look as “fun and flirty, but still so classic.” When pushed for advice on how to feel comfortable in a bikini, the curvaceous Texan replied, “You have to be comfortable in your own skin because when you feel good about yourself, you are going to look great no matter what you’re wearing.” As for her own tricks for looking good? “I really think the secret to beauty is confidence. If you are happy and find beauty on the inside, it will surely translate to the outside. And smile!” The Jessica Simpson for Red Carter collection retails between $40-100 and will be available for purchase at select Macy’s and at jessicasimpsoncollection.com starting December 30.

I think that Jessica has amazing talent. Her shoe and purse lines are fabulous! I can’t wait to see this line! Best of luck to her!

I’m not sure why there is any negativity about her, she lives scandal-free, which is so un-Hollywood, she raises money for amazing charities and you never see her without a smile.

I love her!

she needs money. her “singing” and “acting” careers have already tanked.

I’m so tired of this talentless woman taking up space for people with real gifts. Ediable make up? and the Music. I guess America is going down cause her 15 minutes was long over. Let it go invest in stocks and get out of public view.

I’m soo proud of Jessica. :) Can’t wait to see what the bathing suits look like!!

Jessica isn’t the talent. She said on QVC her Mom is the whole enchilada behind all of this…they had to tell her to shut up because she didn’t realize what she was even saying. Her parents brought her this far, and I can’t believe this really untalented girl gets any press.

She seems to do well with all her clothing lines,and especially her shoes.Hardly wait to see her swim suit line.

Jessica’s line is very fadish. I think her stuff is super cute, but not sure how it would hold over season after season. Swimsuits should be changed regularly anyway. I like World Swimwear for fashionable inexpensive swimwear. Jessica’s swimwear line has been out for the last 2 seasons, at least.

Yes. Jessica has a real body and will surely make swimwear for real women.
