Jessica Simpson's acting and music career may be over, but her fashion career is booming.
According to a recent WWD report, the "Dukes of Hazzard" actress has risen from the "celebrity designer crowd" and is on her way to hit the $1 billion dollar mark in sales by early 2011.
It turns out, The Jessica Simpson Collection, has become one of the most successful celebrity fashion lines of all time.
Simpson's line which includes handbags, clothing, shoes, accessories, fragrance and luggage has grossed over $750 million in retail receipts this year alone, and has plans to expand next year with a Simpson Sportswear collection.
"She is the girl next door and has great product that surrounds her," Vince Camuto, the founder and CEO of Camuto Group, her brand's master licensee, told WWD. "People like her. People look at her as a style icon."
Simpson's estimated personal net worth is currently around $100 million.
