There was a time when Jessica Simpson was a sweet gal from Texas turned pop star newlywed turned divorcĂ©e movie star who resurrected denim hot pants with a her first starring movie role. Well, now our gal’s a bona fide BILLIONAIRE due to her mega successful clothing and accessories brand, the Jessica Simpson Collection. Not only has J Simp revolutionized the celebrity clothing industry, she’s made a name for herself in the world of fashion and is set to be a mentor in next year’s Fashion Star reality TV series. Also, she just launched a clothing line for tweens called Jessica Simpson Girls. Oh, and did we mention that she’s also preggers? Whew, this gal is busy.

Designed with her sister Ashlee Simpson (mother to toddler Bronx Mowgli Wentz in case you’ve forgotten his New York/Disney indie rock heritage), the line is a spirited collection of sportswear separates for young ladies on the cusp of teen-dom. There’s everything from black leather jackets with faux fur trims to denim vests and the cutest sweater skirts and pants. As Ashlee explained via her Twitter account, the collection “combines Jess’s playful + feminine style with my vintage-inspired edge.” We love that the sister design duo used pops of color like bright pink pants and turquoise tees to offset the black and white basics. Launched at Dylan’s Candy Bar in New York, Jessica posed with a bevy of young models wearing the line while she sported a leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress topped with a Camilla and Marc leather jacket and shoes from her own collection. How many more collections do you think she’ll launch? No telling, but Jessica Simpson Girls is available now just in time for the holidays.
