Jessica Ann Simpson (born July 10, 1980, in Abilene, Texas) is an American singer, actress, TV personality, and fashion designer. She rose to fame as an artist achieving seven Billboard Top 40 hits, three gold, and two multi-platinum albums, four of which have reached the top 10 on the US Billboard 200. She has sold over 20 million albums worldwide. She even went into reality television starring alongside her then-husband Nick Lachey in the MTV show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.

She also starred in VH1’s The Price of Beauty in 2010. She even went into a film starring in films like The Dukes of Hazzard and Employee of the Month. As an entrepreneur, she has launched her own line of hair and beauty products, designed fragrances, shoes, and handbags. Her line became the Jessica Simpson Collection, which launched in 2005.

Best Known For:
Jessica’s foray into pop music made her a star, but her televised marriage to then-husband Nick Lachey propelled her to the A-List. She played the dumb blonde perfectly, but we know it must have been a ruse, as Jessica’s business instincts have been dead on – with her collection earning close to a billion dollars.

Personal Life:
Jessica married Nick Lachey on TV, then let the cameras follow their relationship, which led to its demise. She then famously dated Tony Romo for what seemed like forever, before he dumped her and married Candace Crawford. But she rebounded quickly with Eric Johnson — the pair got engaged in November 2010 and have had two children together, Maxwell (born in May 2012) and Ace (born in June 2013).

HBD Jess !!

Jessica Simpson and jean shorts are so synonymous. The designer practically started the denim-loving craze after she showed off her legendary legs in 2005’s The Dukes of Hazzard film. Jessica reprised the role of Daisy Duke, where she donned a number of short shorts and tiny tops — all of which made her everyone’s Hollywood crush.

Even today, on Jessica’s 40th birthday, she’s still ours! Celebrate her milestone with us by checking through her hottest Daisy Duke looks!

In her April 2020 memoir, Open Book, Jessica discussed the effect her scene-stealing role had on her, and how it shaped the public’s perception of what they believed her body should look like. The singer revealed that the Daisy Duke shorts she wore in Dukes of Hazzard set a “gold standard Jessica,” which led to criticism over her weight for the next 15 years, through three pregnancies.

She explained that the memorable ensemble created a “before” image for every tabloid story that seemingly questioned “is she fat or is she thin” — something Jessica said lasted “for the rest of my career.”

Anyways, Jessica looks incredible at 40! Let’s appreciate that fact.
