Blog: Leonie BarrieJessica's jeans

Leonie Barrie | 13 April 2006

Jessica Simpson is an American singer/actress who appeared as the scantily-clad Daisy Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard movie and is probably just as well know for her love of skimpy, revealing clothing as she is for her creative talents. But now her penchant for wearing as little as possible has got her into deep water with Tarrant Apparel Group.

The clothing maker signed Simpson in a multi-million dollar deal to promote its sportswear lines, but says she failed to wear these fashions at events, shows and appearances – and even named a rival jeans brand as her favourite. Not the cleverest of moves, but then Simpson wasn’t hired for her brains. TAG now wants $100m in compensation. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that’s a lot of money for not putting on a few threads.
