Not every woman is Jessica Simpson, but Jessica Simpson is an everywoman.
Tracy Smith interviewed the fashion mogul for CBS Sunday Morning, airing May 21 at 9 a.m. ET. After enduring years of criticism for her fluctuating weight, Simpson decided to fight back by creating a clothing line that represents women of all shapes. "It's very important for me to let every woman feel included. Like, every person needs to feel included. If I make a shirt, I'm going to make sure every size is available," she told Smith. "Because I have been every size, trust me."
The Jessica Simpson Collection, launched in 2006, is estimated to be a billion- dollar a year business. "People are shocked that they like my brand. Maybe 'cause it's not that expensive? Or maybe because I was a cheesy pop star back in the day," the 36-year-old said. "I have no idea."
