Ashlee Simpson‘s style has always differed from her sister Jessica‘s: Jess has always been feminine and frilly, while Ashlee’s rocked an edgier, downtown vibe. But mom Tina Simpson says there’s a simpler difference between the two.
“[Ashlee’s] boobs aren’t as big!” she tells PEOPLE at the Jessica Simpson Fall 2013 collection launch in N.Y.C..
“True that!” Ashlee says, laughing. “[Jessica’s] a bit more girly, and I kind of like to bring an edge to my looks. I do like to be in dresses, I just like to toughen it.”
The two sisters may be very different on the surface, but that didn’t stop new mom Jessica from making her little sis the face of the line for fall. Their differing styles appear to mix in these exclusive first-look photos of the campaign, with Ashlee bringing a little fierceness to the feminine clothes.
“I have a pretty cool sister with an amazing sense of style, and I was honored to get to do the shoot,” says Ashlee, who collaborates on the brand as well, contributing to the tween line. “We keep it in the family. Jessica’s a fun one to work with.”
Shooting the campaign with Ellen von Unwerth wasn’t just playing dress-up, though—things got a little messy on set.
“We were all having a good time, kicking dirt in pretty dresses,” Ashlee says. “They did tell us to look for ticks! And I was like, ‘Okay, I’m just going to roll in the dirt.”
And did Ashlee invoke sisterly rights and “borrow” anything from the shoot? Yes, she confesses. “There’s a shot that I have a maroon dress on in, and it was so beautiful,” she says. “I love that dress — it was my favorite.”
So cute. The way they wear the clothes is so different and I think that says a lot of the versatility of the line. I am pretty sure that Jessica with the exact same clothes will have a completely different vibe!
