Jessica Simpson is a singer, actress and billion-dollar brand.
In an interview with Tracy Smith of “CBS Sunday Morning”, Simpson discusses the surprise success of her line, The Jessica Simpson Collection.
Simpson says that when fans come up to her to discuss the collection, they’re always “shocked” to admit how much they like it.
“People are shocked that they like my brand,” Simpson says. “Maybe ‘cause it’s not that expensive? Or maybe because I was a cheesy pop star back in the day. I have no idea,” she admits.
The collection includes clothing, shoes, accessories and the business is estimated to be a billion-dollar success for Simpson. She says she remains exclusively involved in nearly every stage of the brand. From the designing of the clothes to what she does and doesn’t want to put her name on, the brand is very much a representation of her.
That includes every aspect of Simpson. She pokes fun at the tabloid’s obsession with her weight over the years and says she is very inclusive when it comes to sizing for the brand.
“It’s very important for me to let every woman feel included,” Simpson reveals. “Like, every person needs to feel included. If I make a shirt, I’m going to make sure every size is available. Because I have been every size, trust me.”
