It’s good to be a Simpson!

First Jessica and Ashlee join forces for a tween line and now Lisa Simpson‘s launching a luxury footwear line.

Yes, you read that right. Lisa Simpson as in the saxophone playing sister of Bart. OK, it’s actually the voice of Lisa aka Yeardley Smith who’s doing the designing.

Smith doesn’t have ant fashion experience whatsoever, but thanks to a little help from Italian shoe experts she’s launching Marchez Vous YS.

Yeardley says of her shoes:

“Many people regard the word ├óΓé¼╦£comfort├óΓé¼Γäó in footwear as a dirty word since it doesn├óΓé¼Γäót usually translate to chic and elegant. But I love shoes and I am always running around and I didn├óΓé¼Γäót accept that comfort and style had to be mutually exclusive. My mission is to marry beauty with comfort. Each pair must meet five standards of quality or it doesn├óΓé¼Γäót make my collection.”

There are 10 different styles of Marchez Vous shoes and they aren’t cheap!

Prices range from $350 to $495, which is peanuts compared to the $400,000 an episode she makes on The Simpsons.
