The real Jessica Simpson has been a Southern girl with her Levi’s on and an open heart for quite some time, but now she’s also the name behind a brand that makes $1 billion in annual sales. BuzzFeed reports that the billion-dollar figure is “more than the revenue at American Apparel, Bebe and Sotheby’s.”

The release disclosed that annual retail sales for the brand, founded in 2005, are about $1 billion, which it’s often been estimated at. That’s up from the $750 million that New York magazine said it brought in during 2010.

Go ahead, Jessica - let your hair down and say anything crazy. Your pile of money will catch you right before you hit the ground.
