Jessica Simpson: Meet The Billionaire

Jessica Simpson‘s fashion empire will take in more than $1 billion in 2011, has learned.

That will represent a stunning 25 percent increase over her 2010 gross and put the singer-turned-designer in the same financial company as Michael Kors and other far-more established fashion leaders. This according to a profile of Simpson upcoming in New York Magazine.

In the interview, Jessica also opens up about her engagement to former NFL player Eric Johnson, and described his marriage proposal.
