Jessica Simpson is confident in her own fashion line — emphasis on hers†
The “Public Affair” singer took to Instagram on March 30 to share a series of photos of herself in various outfits, including cropped jeans, which just now a little longer than the one she famously wore as Daisy Duke in the 2005 comedy The Dukes of Hazzard†
Simpson captioned the photos: “My Spring 2022 @jessicasimpsonstyle campaign has arrived! Shot by one of my favorites @adamfranzino, I wanted to share the vibrant, wild and free spirit of spring. This is @tinasimpsonofficial’s first campaign and I’ve photos taken as the full owners of the Jessica Simpson collection and we wanted to share some of that serenity and confident power with everyone.”
Simpson got a lot of praise in the comment section, with one follower writing, “You’re absolutely gorgeous! And the jeans with that striped top reminds me of my high school days! Love it.” Another added, “I love every piece. Jewelry is great too.” A third complimented her shoes, writing, “You have one of the best taste in shoes!”
Simpson took back ownership of her brand in 2021 and paid millions to Sequential Brands Group Inc. for her name back. At the time of the sale, she posted a celebratory Instagram post about the win.
“TODAY after 3 years of hearing ‘NO’. IT’S IMPOSSIBLE. IT’S DOWN. IT’S TOO HARD…’I’m truly honored to reclaim 100% ownership of MY name and my brand,” she wrote. “It was a long journey to get to this point. I was told no, there was no brand ownership, I wasn’t relevant enough and I would never be 100%.”
She continued: “TODAY we can look back and say we DEFEATED ALL ODDS against us. We survived the battle and today we CONFIDENTLY claim victory! The entire Jessica Simpson collection is ours! #OwnSelf.”

The businesswoman has recently reclaimed her power in ways that also surpass style. In 2020 she released the memoir Open book, detailing her personal life — including high-profile romances with stars like ex-husband Nick Lachey and ex-boyfriend John Mayer — as well as her experiences in the public eye. It also details her struggles with substance abuse and alcohol addiction, for which she received help in 2019.
She wrote in the book, “Giving up the alcohol was easy. I was mad at that bottle. At how it allowed me to remain complacent and numb.”
In an interview with Yahoo’s In the Know, Simpson explained why she chose to share her experiences in a memoir: “At a young age I felt very strongly that I would use my voice to help change the world if I could and it is a better place, and I’ve been trying to do what I can for others and by writing since I was 6 years old Open bookI did a lot of self-healing, and my self-healing allowed me to connect with so many people.”
