For the breathtaking gown that Jessica Simpson wore for her wedding to Eric Johnson in Santa Barbara, Calif., on July 5, the bride didn’t serve as the only muse.

Designer Carolina Herrera reveals in PEOPLE’s exclusive video that she also drew inspiration from the famed portrait of Empress Elisabeth “Sissi” of Austria painted by Franz Zaver Winterhalter in 1865.

“It reminds me of the way I want you to look,” Herrera told Simpson during her dress fitting at the designer’s New York City atelier June 11. “You told me before you wanted to be very regal. I thought this is fantastic for the whole idea.”

“I love that you’re inspired by a painting,” Simpson said. “It makes me feel special.”

She’s not the only one who felt that way: Simpson’s 2-year-old daughter, Maxwell, also wore Carolina Herrera for the family’s big day.

Said the proud mom of her mini-me, who participated in the wedding: “She’s going to feel like a princess.”

Jessica Simpson's Having a Mega Mini Moment (Just in Case You Forgot How Toned Her Legs Are)

Jun/10/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

Jessica Simpson has been on a non-stop body-flaunting parade. (And we can’t really blame her.) The Weight Watchers spokesperson is all about the mini dress this summer, showing off her slimmed down figure in a number of short designs. And now it’s time to talk about them.

Most recently, the mom to daughter Maxwell, 2, and son Ace, 11 months, stepped out with fiancé Eric Johnson and a group of their close family and friends to celebrate co-ed bachelor-bachelorette party in West Hollywood. Simpson, 33, selected a tight Saint Laurent LBD featuring a dotted illusion yoke. The design not only put her stems on display, but also showed off a notable amount of décolletage.

Next, the designer wore a high-neck white lace dress with a short hemline and ankle-strap heels for a day running errands in L.A. And finally, at a friend’s baby shower, she donned a fuchsia frock with nude platform wedges that accentuated her leg muscles.

To maintain her weight loss, Simpson sticks to her Weight Watchers plan (she’s a spokeswoman) and does this workout with trainer Harley Pasternak. But most importantly, Simpson says, she has found a balance and doesn’t let a number on the scale dictate her actions.

“I fluctuate, I’m a woman,” she said in a recent interview. “I feel like we all need to enjoy life. If I’m five pounds heavier or 50 pounds heavier or five pounds lighter, I don’t think that should define who you are.”

Jessica Simpson: My Clothing Line Works Because 'I've Been Every Size on the Planet, and I Think Beyond NYC and L.A.'

May/16/2014 at 02:53 PM ET

Jessica Simpson has turned her eponymous clothing and accessories line into a billion-dollar brand, so it’s no wonder that the singer-turned-businesswoman was asked to appear at the Forbes Women’s Summit in N.Y.C. Thursday to be interviewed by none other than Steve Forbes himself. Wearing a dress and cuffs from her own Jessica Simpson Collection, the star discussed why her fashion line has become such a hit where others have fizzled out.

“I think my brand has surpassed my name and my celebrity,” Simpson said of her line, which has grown to include footwear, juniors’ and plus size. The trick to making things that appeal to a wide variety of customers — and not just her fan base? “I think I understand women. I’ve been every size on the planet, and I think beyond New York and LA.”

She expanded on the “every size on the planet” line by addressing her very public weight loss journey as a Weight Watchers spokeswoman. “I fluctuate, I’m a woman,” she said, according to WWD. “I feel like we all need to enjoy life. If I’m five pounds heavier or 50 pounds heavier or five pounds lighter, I don’t think that should define who you are.”

And though she’s currently at her goal weight, she doesn’t put too much stock in the number no the scale, living by two common-sense mantras: “Tune out the world and tune into you” and “I don’t let others define me for me,” she said in the interview.

Ultimately, the bride-to-be has one goal in her fashion line: “I want to make every woman confident in what they’re wearing.” Do you shop Simpson’s clothes? Do you believe in her body-positive mantras? Sound off in the comments!
