Best pro-vegan argument? It makes you look good without pants on.

Jessica Simpson graces the cover of the most recent issue of New York Magazine, thanks to estimates that her fashion line will make $1 billion this year. Not a bad number for a celebrity line to be sure, but also a nice number for any line: a billion dollars in annual sales puts Jessica’s earnings on par with Michael Kors.

In the spread, Simpson poses with teased hair and wearing nothing but a button-down shirt, “Risky Business”-style. She looks great, and has clearly slimmed down quite a bit from her Tony Romo days as well. But, that’s what adopting vegan eating habits will do for you!

We have reported before on Jessica’s foray into vegan living due to her engagement to Eric Johnson: Jessica has taken vegan cooking classes for the guy, and hosted a vegan-friendly thanksgiving last year.

In fact, Johnson has apparently gotten Simpson into a whole New Age way of life: following “The Artist’s Way“, every morning the two write down their thoughts in free form together. “He’ll get up in the morning and just write, so nothing blocks his emotional life,” says Simpson. “We do that together. Sometimes he takes that hour just reading, we’ll get out of bed and just read aloud to each other.”

But don’t worry, Simpson hasn’t changed too much. We can still get the Jessica-isms that we know and love from her, like this one: “He has so many books. Like, just books and books and books and books.”
