Jessica Simpson has become quite the fashion mogul for reasons most socialites wouldn't expect!
Ever since J.Simps stopped dieting and working out all the time, she says more women were able to relate to her. This meant big bucks for her clothing line. With a broad range of styles and sizes, her Jessica Simpson Collection is on track to bring in a billion dollars by the end of 2012!
But what about fitting into the clothes? When it comes to the weight, she admits it was hard at first hearing the media scrutiny, but the real people on the streets made it all better:
I got so much scrutiny for putting on extra pounds, but I think that the decision not to make myself anorexic was actually great for branding. Because when you’re really, really skinny, not everybody can relate to you. All kinds of women started coming up to me and saying what an example I was setting by not constantly dieting. Everybody fluctuates, but I’m open about my weight and I’m still confident. I didn’t cry about it too much.
She also tells Lucky her shopping secret:
I’m more particular now because I know what things are costing the manufacturers. So I know when I’m getting ripped off!
And what's so amazing about being a fashion designer:
I love that you can dream about a paisley, and then two months later, someone’s wearing it. I really observe things now, like I can see a painting and want it to be printed on a shirt. It’s fun to always be turning things into clothes. I’m basically styling America!
All in all, Jessica says she's the most at peace ever, and that's always a good thing for business! And for baby…
Yesterday, she announced to the world she was going to be a 'mummy' by posting a Halloween pic of herself rubbing her tummy! Congrats again, girl!

The sisters Simpson announced they are joining forces to create a tween clothing line that will launch under the uber-successful Jessica Simpson Collection brand.
The unnamed collection is set to roll out later this year and will include everything a girl could want: denim, knits, hoodies, pullovers, graphic tees, outerwear and footwear.
Jess said of her latest business venture:
"Creating a tween apparel collection was a natural extension for the brand. I’m excited to bring my sister, Ashlee, along as co-creative director of this division, because she brings a savvy rocker edge that defines today’s tweens."
"My goal as co-creative director will be to design clothes that will help inspire young girls to express their personalities and creativity through fashion."
And as if Jessica hasn't already made enough money with her fashion empire, the tween collection is expected to rake in an additional $20 million next year.

Still trying to figure out what to wear to prom?
Jeannie's put together different looks using dresses from the Jessica Simpson Collection that will have you looking fab for your big night.
Check out her prom tips in the clip (above)!
And even though she's kept relatively mum on the subject, she did mention a few more deets this week.
Jess revealed to People:
"It's definitely going to be beautiful. I want it to be different from what I've had before. I have a lot of tear sheets!"
As for the style, the future bride says she like gowns with a v-neck or scoop neck since they flatter her figure more. She adds:
"I like my collar bone. I have a long neck, so I like to show off my décolletage."
Simpson also likes the idea of a non-white gown a la Reese Witherspoon, because a lighter color would give it a "romantic feel".
So when will she be wearing her own creation? Who knows!
Jessica said she won't be setting a date to tie the knot with Eric Johnson until her dress design is finalized.

We knew something smelled fishy.
Earlier we mentioned Jessica Simpson's plans to expand her shoe collection to scuba gear, but it turns out she was kidding.
We did some digging and found out the shoes in the picture were created by Belgian artist Paul Schietekat for an exhibit in 2006.
Nice try, Jess.
