Very exciting. If you love celebrity style and fashion you have to check out my friends site. She’s a stylist in LA. She has a blog called Fash Boulevard. look it up on google. it’s great

This is so sad, Jessica Simpson has the assiest style. She can’t even wear a simple t-shirt & jeans right. If I were the contestants I would treat her “advice” as white noise. Her help would just get them eliminated.

she is singer ? where in the shower ?

# 4

The clothes and shoes she puts her name on are cute, but SHE has no style whatsoever. I would not want her to be my stylist, just sayin’.

Aw her face is so pudgy.
Better than emaciated I guess.
And she’s not disgusting obese (yet) or anything.

Nobody believes she contributes anything of value to the line that bought her name. All she does is pass gas when the people who really run the show have meetings.

Christina Aguilera and now Jessica Simpson. How long until NBC hires Britney Spears and Mandy Moore?

Singer??? Designer??? Actress??? Does NBC think we’re stupid?? Christina Aguilera IS a popular singer and if they hired Britney Spears she IS a pop icon. Jessica is a talentless hack!

Fashion mentor? Oh the irony…

JARED STOP REMOVING MY COMMENTS!!!!!!

Why are any of you even here commenting if you don’t like her? Most people would have the common sense to steer clear of people they don’t like. I’m guessing you’re all a bunch of teenagers (mature adults don’t behave as all of you do) with nothing going for you right now so your only form of entertainment is to bash someone you don’t even know. We’re not in elementary school anymore, kids. It’s time you found something constructive to do with your lives. Leaving disgusting comments is not what I would consider constructive but what do I know, right?

Cue the insults that sound like they came from a third-grader in three… two.. one.

Amanda, you’re bashing commenters you “don’t even know”. You must consider that doing “something constructive” with your life. The people making comments here are only doing exactly what you are doing.

@kettle: The majority of the people here went out of their way to hate on Jessica when they could have skipped over the article entirely. They do it because they’re bored and have nothing to do and/or they enjoy getting a rise out of people. I was only referring to the comments I was being subjected to. For example, I’m not going to go to a post about Lady Gaga or Paris Hilton and start spewing a bunch of hateful comments about them just because. If someone asks me about them, yes, I will give my opinion but I would not go out of my way to address my dislike for them like every person on this comment board. It’s called common sense and it’s safe to say that no one here is using it.

I was searching for fashion ideas and stumbled upon this site. I have no idea who the chubby man with the fake hair is pictured above, but apparently it makes money with a fashion line.

I feel I must comment about this person I don’t even know to warn anyone who wants to be fashionable not to buy anything with this chubby transvestite’s name on it or you too will be mistaken for an overweight cross dresser. I am going out of my way to comment because I am concerned about my fellow shoppers getting duped by this unfashionable tubby tranny.

@Warning: You were searching for fashion ideas on JJ? Yeah, that makes sense. Do you not realise that this supposedly unfashionable brand has made over a billion dollars? If you’re so concerned with what your ‘fellow shoppers’ decide to purchase, maybe you should put out your own line. I’m sure someone would love to sell it in a back alley somewhere since, you know, it wouldn’t even make bank at a thrift store.

What were the profits for the line? That’s a sales figure you mentioned (which isn’t over a billion…it’s 750 million) and that doesn’t mean anything if the line wasn’t making a profit. Remember GM was making over 22 billion in just one quarter before they took a government bailout because despite 22 billion in sales, the company was not profitable.

Since this is a privately held company, the financials are not made public unless the company issues press releases which is what they did with that sales figure. Maybe to try to fool people into thinking it’s a success when it reality, it might be losing money. That sales figure is meaningless. What were the profits?
