Less than a month ago Jessica Simpson's new denim collection went on sale to a rousing response.

The busy singer turned fashion mogul took a few minutes to chat with StyleList about her denim designs, available at Macy's and on her official website.

StyleList: Who is your personal style icon?
Jessica Simpson: Brigitte Bardot is my favorite beauty in the world. Her beauty and style are so iconic, and naturally sexy.

SL: What brand was the very first pair of jeans you owned?
JS: Being from Texas, I think it had to be a pair of classic Levi's.

SL: Do you actually wear the jeans from your collection? What has been the response from your friends and family?

JS: Of course, I wear the jeans -- I love them! My favorite styles are the Malibu skinny and the Sunset bootleg [Simpson is wearing the latter in photo] – they make your legs look so long. What is great about these jeans is that there are no age boundaries... even my mom and her friends wear them!


SL: The silhouettes are kind of skinny -- what are
girls with curves to do?
JS: Our four core fits are skinny, jegging, bootleg, and flare, so there's a fit for every body. All of the denim fabric has stretch, so they are super comfortable too.

SL: What's the next category you want to expand into, and what's next personally?
JS: We are busy this fall launching jeans wear, plus, my latest fragrance, Fancy Nights, hits stores this month. I have some exciting projects in the works, personally. I love each facet of my career and every area brings me something new to discover.
