We all may make fun of Jessica Simpson, but she's the one laughing all the way to the bank, thanks to her fashion line. When you're expected to pull in 10 figures, who needs music?

WWD.com says the Jessica Simpson Collection is a surprise hit, raking in $750 million so far this year, with sales expected to exceed 1 billion. Take that, Nick Lachey.

"She is the girl next door and has great product that surrounds her," Vince Camuto, founder and CEO of Camuto Group, told the site (Camuto is the master licensee for the brand). "People like her. People look at her as a style icon."

 

All that revenue means the 30-year-old has a net worth somewhere north of $100 million. You remember that the next time you joke about her mom jeans; fiance Eric Johnson certainly will.
