Jessica Simpson is one of those rare breeds of celeb designers whose collection actually fares well. And for J. Simp, her line has had more than just a little success, the Jessica Simpson Collection has taken off in a BIG way despite past backlash for allegedly wearing “mom jeans” (Suck it, naysayers! Also, high-waisteds have become totally IN, so who’s laughing now?!). No joke, her sales are projected to push past the BILLION dollar mark, which is just such a crazy amount of money, it makes our eyes spin around revealing their B-side of little sparkly dollar signs. Given her ultra-fash-mogul status, it’s no surprise that for its newest fash-reality competition show, Fashion Star, NBC elected Jess as the mentor for the show’s aspiring designer contestants.

Jessica is no stranger to reality TV, having launched her own show Jessica Simpson’s The Price of Beauty, and of course, no one can forget Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, when she won over the hearts of America with eight simple words, “Is this chicken, what I have, or fish?” We look forward to more adorably goofy moments and words of fashion wisdom. ’Cause you know what? While we suspect there will be countless moments of hair twirling, eye batting, self-deprecating giggling and googly-eyed lamentations of impending nuptials, there will also be STONE-COLD TRUISMS ABOUT WHAT LADIES WANT TO WEAR AND HOW TO CORNER THE BEJESUS OUT OF A “CONTEMPORARY” PRICE POINT. No seriously, we want to know what jewels she’ll reveal because do not get it remotely twisted, this lady knows how to “make it work.”
