Have you ever mocked Jessica Simpson? You aren't alone, there are plenty who laugh at Simpson but it seems she's about to have the last laugh, all the way to the bank.

The Texan, who rose to stardom singing pop-country music and displaying her life on reality TV with ex-hubby Nick Lachey, first dipped her toe into the fashion water in 2005.

A preacher’s daughter who used her celebrity to endorse a line of fashion including shoes, sunglasses, swimwear and scent, brought in $750 million this year in retail sales across all of her 22 lines according to Forbes. The line is set to expand to include sportswear in 2011 and the move is estimated to ring in a cool billion.

Not a bad year's work.
